Im a first time grower so I am working off of the limited research i've done and the posts on the online forums,. Ended up getting the inoculation and incubation down pat after a few attempts but now that i'm in the fruiting phase I feel as if i'm doing a few things wrong. I've have had theses babies in the fruiting chamber for about a week now and the caps on one cake are developing wayy more than the body of the shrooms. And now I'm a bit worried because there are little to no pins on the other cakes and the ones that have developed seemed to have stalled or are growing abnormally. 

I mist above the cakes, far enough so that they only get misted and not drops of water on them, a couple times a day and fan about 4-5 times a day.

The first three images are of the one cake with good development at the start.

This is what they looked like at day 4.

This is how they've developed after one week (present)

Are those Kho Samui or some other Thai strain? The caps look like a Thai variety. Do you have holes in the lid also? It's hard to see the lid, but it should have holes just like the other 5 sides. How deep is the perlite? It should be three or 4 inches. Your mush looks fine to me.

No they're Golden Teacher cakes. I don't have holes in the top, or the bottom but I know that I gotta do that

Probably should remove the cakes, fix my tub then reintroduce them.

Plus now I got spores all over my perlite, should i be harvesting them now? Im very frustrated and confused as to what I should be doing now, could ya give me some advice as to what I should do now 🙏

- I don't know what caused the caps to grow before they got longer because in all of the images of Golden Teacher's being grown they seem to have a closed cap for most of the growth. Even the little one growing out of the cake to the right is having the cap grow to the point where it's inverting.

The inverted cap is just a matter of age. For max potency grab them when they have just opened up, before the spores drop. Don’t worry about the spores on the perlite. Go ahead and grab those mushrooms and dunk the cakes again. If you don’t want to empty the tub to add holes, crack the lid just a bit. Turn it slightly diagonal until you have about a 1/4 inch gap on the corners. The increased fae should make them elongate a little more.
