Help! Need info on harvesting casings asap?
    #1003519 - 10/29/02 05:01 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

My friend has a casing that is not flushing evenly. In some spots there are clumps with full grown mushrooms and semi-mature ones. Should my friend try to pick the ones that are ready or will that disturb the rest of the casing and possibly rip out some premature mushies? thanks for any advice

Pick them as they mature, not all at once. At some point you will notice that the shrooms remaining are not getting any bigger. These are aborts and that means it is time to recase.

Man when i picked my casing (coir/verm) it looked like the fine work of a squirrel digging into
grandma's yard  looking for its stash.  I gotta stop watching squirrels dig their holes, they r having
an influence on me. next thing u'll know, my nose will be right  there in the casing  gettin all dirty LOL

I dont think he should pick as they mature, esp if there r semi mature ones hovering around.  Wait til those
mature then pick all of them...unless of course there r more  to come. 
What i do,is that when i see a cluster of fruits that have fully matured..i look around the rest of the casing
and see if  there r any more up and comers. maybe wait several hours. see if the lil ones will grow up and if they dont
. ..pick the whole [Email]yard@![/Email]

I wonder if squirrels will eat cubies?  Just a pondering thought, not like im gonna do it    :crazy:

pick the mature ones so they don't drop spores on your casing and smother it.

Harvest them as they become ready.

and be sure to try & remove the entire stem(even underneath the casing layer) plucked to the mycellium block sos yous don't got to worry abouts rotting peices becoming a contamination breeding ground. Also good for future flushes.In case you didn't know.

i guess it depends on where you are at, but you should aim for even flushes . a strategy from stamets's mushroom cultivator for large total yields, is if you have like a few pins maturing earlier than the abundant primordia, to harvest those first pins so they dont rob nutrients from the abundant primordia that will make up most of the flush.
