Removing verm from shrooms
    #1045728 - 11/12/02 10:05 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I've noticed mushrooms like the verm (more specifically, verm containing dihydrogen monoxide), and they get all fluffy at the base, kind of assimilating the verm, which I have to pick out at harvest time. I can never get it all off though, or, in the process of, I end up picking off strands and/or chunks of mushrooms. Anyone have a solution to this? I was thinking of chopping off the bases where it exists, and drying and collecting. Then, when I have a large enough collection, doing a cranberry juice extraction. That is really complicated though for such a seeminly simple problem. Hence, I am posting here.

i was doing this yesterday...what i do is just take a scalpel and just kinda gently peel it off...it doesn't take away chunks of the mushroom just the vermiculite...it works pretty well actually, do this right after you pick them...it's a bit therapeutic doing it :tongue:

I've found that after thoroughly drying the crop the verm just brushes off.  :smile:

Just give them a hand dusting when you pick, and dust again after they are dry.  The residual verm will be negligible (did I spell that right anno?) :smile:
