Fat stems or tiny caps?

A lack of light, or rather, a lack of the needed wavelengths of light leave these mushrooms with tiny caps. These mushrooms were fruited under a "warm" fluorescent bulb lacking in the blue portion of the spectrum. I have desaturated the colors in this photo and re-balanced it towards the blue, as the original picture was quite orange-colored due to the light bulb being used.
