How to pick / remove Shrooms from the substrate correctly
    #1429230 - 04/04/03 05:37 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

So my question fer ya'all here is:

How does one correctly remove / pick / cut / dice / pluck the mushroom from the substrate correctly so as to encourage repeat flushes and not contaminate the substrate?

i tried cleaning a small pair of sizzors and cutting it at its base but it left a stunted blue/black stub at the bottom and im wondering if anything will grow from this space again.

would it be better to pluck it from its roots completely? or cut it at the base?


May all beings be happy

Grasp the mushroom at its base and twist lightly until it pulls away. If you cut the mushroom you leave a small amount left over that is prone to rot, which increases the chance for contams.
