First Bulk grow and first time with APE w/ pics couple Qs
    #11293197 - 10/21/09 06:07 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

So i decided id try APE for my first bulk grow first Q... How do i know when they are ready to harvest cause their caps dont really open like traditional mushies?  Also, my monotubs arent doing much more than a few pins, everything was done at the same time (the greenhouse pans and the monos)  so heres the pics...
<-----One of the monotubs (theyre basically looking the same)

Thanks for any help

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

theyve been making steady progress since they first started to pin 3 days ago... Like i said, this is my first time with APE and bulk so i dont really know but all the caps are blue so i doubt that ALL of my shrooms are aborts... thanks for the compliment about my pinset tho :smile:

Usually once they abort the caps turn blue as mentioned.  One thing you might do to check is to rub a blue cap with a toothpick lightly.  If the cap is blue AND an abort then usually the cap will already be really soft/squishy/slimmy and the toothpick, even when used lightly, will cause major "damage" to the aborted mushroom cap.  If the caps are blue and still solid (holding up under a light toothpick rub) then maybe you have a new genetic mutation that causes HEALTHY blue caps and you should clone clone clone... call it Blue Balls.

That pic and this grow is all I know of them.. but it is clearly in that sporeworks pic.. also in the OP's third pic (the blurry one) you can make out a couple in the between stage.. I would let them grow until they get like the white ones.

Really?  A lot of them are already mature?  I thought they get bigger... hence the penis envy term lol cause i dont envy these little dicks at all, althought they are prob much more magical than mine lol  :rofl:

once the cap flips out, i believe they are done growing.. often the short ones grow first, you still have some maturing fruits there, you may be envious yet..

Its looking pretty good, but it still tends towards blue caps which sometimes abort.  They are pretty but I was hoping for pure white mushrooms.  Work will continue, but for now this is the best version.

that monotub is about to go crazy..

i just give them a daily heavy misting and turn off the lights for a few days.

Hahaha I hope RR doesn't hear this!  :uhoh: 

All joking aside, do you get results with this strategy?

i turn off the light to let the MYC recover from harvest between flushes.

why would RR disagree with that..

He's a big lighting fan during fruiting and is militant about it.  I didn't think you meant to turn of the lights AFTER harvesting the flush.
