Let Grow or Harvest?
    #1381765 - 03/16/03 05:49 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I see tons of pictures of peoples terrariums FULL of grown mushrooms, all the way to the top, left to right....it looks as if they just let them all grow instead of picking them when they matured.....is it good to let the cakes produce as many as possible at once, or should you pick them once the veil brakes.

I'm just kinda confused when I see pics of rubbermaid containers FULL of shrooms, cause I was under the impression that you pick them once the veil breaks so that you can make more room for more shrooms to grow.

you should be trying to have an evenly consistant harvest. if you can do that all the veils of a particular flush will break around the same time.

A good thing to remember is that they aren't losing any psilo as they grow bigger.  :wink:  Swim usually lets about 25% of their veils to break, then harvests.

So in theory it would be ok to put the cakes in the terrarium, maintain the humidity and just let them grow until you have a terrarium completely full of mushrooms...as opposed to constantly picking them as a group of them matures.

Or instead of just letting them all grow at once you could harvest them in groups....

Either or right???

I apologize, I was thinking about casings.

Picking each cake when their biggest shrooms mature is the best way. After you harvest, dunk and fruit the cake again... Sometimes one or two shrooms will mature and there are still tons of nice looking pins ready to grow, if the cake doesn't look dry yet it can be kept in the chamber and the big ones can be picked. The pins should then grow and mature in the next week, since not much water or nutrients have been sucked out of the cake yet.

So you should do the dunk tek after each flush?

yep, unless your cakes are bright white still... 12-30 hours in the fridge depending on how dry/yellow the cakes have become

Is frequent misting of mineral water on the cakes another good source of giving the cakes nutrients.....I'm asking because just wondering if there were other alternatives to keeping cakes full of nutrients (as much as possible) without using a fridge to do a cold dunk (say if using your refridgerator isn't an option).

It all depends .......
Are you trying to obtain prints ? If so let the veil break open and the cap open up , then harvest those selected mushies and print them .
If you are picking to eat and for potency pick them just prior to veil tearing open . If you let mushies open up and drop spores you will inhibit future flushes , casings or cakes .
