The great abortion debate!
    #1153430 - 12/19/02 03:42 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

(sorry for the title, couldn't resist)

I had a question about aborts.. I've read mixed things about wether you should pick them the second you notice they've stopped growing, because they could potentially die and rot and raises your chances of contamination. I've also read that you should wait till the end of the flush to pick them because something about the next pin set being uneven or some crap like that.. I don't know. heh. Anyways.. what do you guys think?

Good question.

I'll be waiting for that answer myself.

thats not necessarily true that you WILL getting contams, but i would like to say that your chances of getting contams are significantly higher. I have a casing that has about 70 pin sized abhorts and it was impossible to pick them off. So, I left them on and its been about 2 weeks, I've already had another flush and no signs of contams at all.

Contams are not a sure thing when you leave abhorts alone....
In fact in TMC it says to remove them, and weed clusters of fruits CAREFULLY from the casing (as long as you don't have to mess up the casing structure) as they can hinder further growth of good shrooms and future flushes......

It is difficult to tell if that is true or not though but it seems to be so.....
