picking question!
    #1203028 - 01/09/03 06:18 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)


When you have a pod of shrooms ( a bunch groing from the same spot/base ) how do you pick the mature ones without picking the not quite done ones?

I wanted to pick some that were about to drop spores to avoid a spore mess, but i end up with some that could grow some more!!

I was going to just cut the cap off the top and make a print with it, and leave the stem behind, would it keep on growing? or go bad? or be ok t'il his neibhor is done?

extremely carefully, but you may need to pick the others

It would most likely start to rot, possibly becoming a contamination risk.

If you cut the tops off to do a print, there is no problem with that. The neighboring mushrom will still continue to grow until it matures.

The cut mushroom will not rot in the matter of a day or two.

I see.

okay then, I wish i had an even flush, but i don't, *( yeah, i'm learning ) i had patched the first sing of mycelium and then let it go, i got about 20 nice shrooms, aprox 5 inches tall, more and less. in a 12 inch wide bucket.

I picked them, and at the same time i had some new pins comming up, i'm waiting for these to be done, will i keep getting more pins, or will the casing stop producing, so i can incubate it for a few days and go again??? what's gonna happen here???

I could pick it clean, re-case, and incubate, then fruit again, or just let it be and let the fruits come .... ... ...

No, dont incubate inbetween flushes!

The casing produces the pins/primordia in the first flush for the later flushes as well. So, when picking the first flush, its always wise to be careful not to damage all the little dots or pins in your casing layer.

Its as simple as picking the mushrooms, all the aborts and everything at once, re-casing and keeping your environment the same for fruting. You will want to mist more and up the humidity between flushes...but, not incubate.

Ahhhh right on!!

so it's ok to have all stages of growth at once.. i just re-case over the spots where i picked the mature ones???? and let the rest go, ?? and wait for new ones?? right???

How long can this go for??? in a 12 inch wide bucket with a 2 inch deep straw base inoculated with 1 pin jar of wild bird seed??? covered with 1/2 inch potting soil???

any ideas?
