WHY Harvest the Flush???????
    #1081611 - 11/24/02 01:41 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

When you harvest your shrooms from a PF cake WHY do people harvest the whole flush and not just the shrooms that are ready to be harvest and let the rest of them grow and then harvest when ready?

in my experience the mushrooms all mature within 24 hours of eachother. I pick them when they're ready but they are usually ready within 24 hours of eachoter

It might be a hassle to dry them all seperately.

Maybe you'll forget which cakes have been picked, and then the unpicked ones will rot.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

So a question I havnt seen addressed in the FAQ is:

WHEN to harvest abhorts?
Should I pick them off as they appear, or are identified as abhorts? Or should I wait untill the 'flush' is over then pick them all?

My cakes seem to have one or two good mushies growing towards maturity, but a whole bunch of younger smaller ones...they are all growing at uneven rates, even on the same cake.

I am afraid that the abhorts might rot, and cause contam if left on the cake too long.

Whats the ruling on this?

the caps on the aborts will soon change color from a healthy brown to a darker brown, then black. When you see the color changing, harvest the aborts just before you think they'll be black.
