Mushrooms growing sideways
    #1550337 - 05/15/03 08:58 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Well, sorry for asking stupid newbie questions, but this friend now has another problem: after the first flush the mushrooms in his casing have started growing downwards to the sides. There are a lot more growing the right way but those growing downwards are much bigger and are running out of space.
Would it be possible to harvest them first or will it prevent the other mushrooms from growing?
Or can he just leave them where they are and they will convert back to mycelium?

You mean on the sides of the container? I use a pair of flathead forceps; you could use tweezers but try not to rip them.

Sounds like a lighting issue; the container should be opaque, but if you are talking about a casing the block will usually shrink and some will still grow off the sides, anyway. I have even seen them growing out of the bottom vermiculite layer where there is no light at all.

Thanks, he will try with tweezers.
But the main problem is, will the remaining mushrooms stop growing when some of them are removed? Somewhere I read that this is not advisable...

i think i've heard that the mush might stop growing if some are removed early, but the worst that can happen from that is damaging or disturbing nearby pins or the other mush which may cause rot and contaminate the flush or even the cake/casing. IMO just let them grow and squish in the limited space (they wont convert back to mycelium heh) but if he's gotta remove them just be extra careful.
