How's the harvest?
    #1493835 - 04/25/03 05:57 PM (14 years, 7 days ago)

My German Professor asked this question:

"I used 3 half-pint pf style cakes to make a 50/50 casing. The fruiting chamber didn't have a very large distance between the casing and the lid, maybe 5 or 6 inches. The bigest mushrooms reached up to the plastic lid, then stopped growing in height. Would they possibly have grown higher if the lid was higher? The strain is Hawiian. All in all, for a first flush on a 3 cake casing, do you think 200 grams wet is a good harvest, or should I expect a larger harvest after getting a taller fruiting chamber?"

She has a lot of questions, since this is her first grow, and her first havest. Help her out if you can.

~peace~

7 dry grams per half pint cake is eccelente, for novice or pro. good work!

maybe they'd have been even bigger if they had more headroom, for air exchange and to let them jump when you're not looking!

Nice crop!  :laugh:

IME when mushrooms bump their heads they just bend their necks and keep growing. My friend does not think that your low ceiling limited your harvest by very much.

Cool, thanks for the great answers.

My Prof wanted me to add the following bit of shameless bragging, as well. She couldn't resist.

"I didn't have a single aborted shroom in the whole casing."

Is that normal, or was she just lucky?
