When to pick when growing on straw?
    #1474850 - 04/20/03 12:55 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I've read that there is no point in messing with a second flush off of straw. If this is true, would it be better to go ahead and let them get full size before picking rather than picking when the veil breaks?

Let the veil tear. That is a myth that needs to be put to rest once and for all. I like to pick before the spores drop though, cause it makes such a mess. You can usually get 20% or more growth between veil tear and spore drop, although it's usually just a matter of a few hours. Straw will yeild 80% of the fruit on the first flush. It will flush again, but your growing space would be better utilized with a fresh project. Hope this helps.
