"Manicuring" your cakes ..
    #1101308 - 12/01/02 05:33 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I recently started picking aborts off my cakes early into the flush. I noticed that a lot of the more experienced growers have cakes that only have a few very nice mushrooms on their cakes. What I mean is, no aborts. Just fully grown or growing mushrooms.

I'm wondering if this is a good idea though. After my cakes start pinning, I pick all the aborts off that haven't really grown in 2-3 days. I also pick off pins that started growing on the bottom of the cakes. Does this slow down growth of the other mushrooms because I'm damaging the mycelium or actually leave more water and nutrients for them? Would it be better to pick the aborts when I harvest the fully grown mushrooms?

it doesn't matter, you'll end up with the same weight in the end.

An optimist is never pleasantly surprised.
