About to harvest my first flush...
    #1686041 - 07/04/03 10:43 AM (14 years, 27 days ago)


I actually was successful on my first grow, and my cakes are growin like crazy. Im about to pick off the first flush on one cake and I was just wondering, what should I do about storing them. I want to eat some as soon as I take them off, so should I eat them wet or dry them? What should I do about the rest, dry them? I hear that they loose potency when you dry them so is there any way i can store them to where they stay fresh and I can eat them later? If i do need to dry them, how should I go about doing this? Well thats all, im psyched to trip off my own grow!

You should watch it like a hawk. Look for weird smells, look out for green color, mushrooms bruise in shades of blue/gray/purple but not really green. Is it all over the cake on different spots or just on one or two spots? And also how old is your cake? Old cakes, that are depleted often get blue.

The cake is about a week old, and the blueish green isint in spots of its own on the cake, its just kinda growing on the stems of some little pins. I took a q-tip and touched the area and it made the blueish green spot kinda spread, and get a little darker but it did not come off onto the q-tip. So i dont know what this means, I hope it is just bruising, cause i really wanna eat this shrooms.

Ok sounds good, If the blueing is growing on the stems of the pins and they keep getting bigger and ready to harvest, should I still eat them?

A green problem will spread sooooooooooo fast you will see the difference when it happens, compared to what you have currently.
Just bruising.  Bruising wont rub off.
Eat up my mom would say as a child.

Haha, in 5 months of relatively intensive newby cultivation, I harvested something like 3 or 4 doses, that's horrible!! :smile:  But now I don't screw my projects anymore :laugh:

blue/bluish green bruising is normal on the cake and on the fruits.

get a fan. pick harvest (with dirt and everything still attatched) and put them on a cookie cooling rack or a metal trivot. elevate rack so it is in line with the fan blades and set fan on medium speed. Fan for 1 day or until fruits shrivle considerable and are relatively dry but still pliable. Next, go to Walmart and by some dessicant (dry-rite, dry z air, damp rid, or some other white pellet dessicant) these usually come plastic tubs. cut the top off an egg carton then cut it in half crosswise, lay the fan dried fruits in the carton and place in a sealable container (rubbermaid roughneck) with the egg carton half on one side and a good handful of dessicant on the other (don't worry about putting them in the little preforated container that comes with the dessicant, you can jus place it directly in the bottom of the rubbermaid contatiner). Cover the container with plastic wrap (or a Saran quick wrap) and place the cover on. Do not place the carton directly on top of the dessicant because then the carton and the fruits will get soaked with the residual liquid that the dessicant absorbs. Leave this covered for another day or two and you should have "cracker dry" fruits.
