little shrooms with black heads are aborts, pick em immediatly, they may have rotted already. Myc on the stalk is normal. Pick the shrooms when the viel breaks.

  I would say BIG mushrooms are suspect.. Send them to me for a better analysis.

no, dont pick them 'immediately' :smirk:
you pick ahborts right after you pick the flush.

I thought you are supposed to pick them right away, as they can rot quicker because they aren't growing and then can contaminate. But your 8000 some odd posts certainly imply you are correct sir. THanks for the information.

if you pick them as you see them, you could damage the mycelial network and complicate the growth of the healthy mushrooms as well the primordia of your future flush.
not to mention your contam factor jumps increasingly when you fuck with the cakes/casings too much.
as far as the rot goes, in my experience, the only thing that happens is
the healthy mycelium 'consumes' the ahbort.
so basically, if your cake/casings had 3 flushes, you've only handled them 3 times in that manner.

Sounds like a really healthy setup you're running there, Nah. Don't worry about the mycelium on the stems of the big shrooms. That's perfectly normal. If you look through some pics on this board you'll notice that you're not the only one experiencing this.

About the aborts: I'd like to second what fortyounces2freedom said about picking them. An additional note: I've read that some people actually trip on the aborts, as they also contain psiloc(yb)in. However, be careful not to eat any contaminated or rotting aborts.

Keep up the good work!

IMO, ahborts have the same potency as full grown mushrooms...
some ppl even think more...
