time between flushes on PF cakes
    #1727746 - 07/18/03 03:34 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Alright my friend's cakes have started fruiting over the last week or so and he has two questions. After harvesting a flush, and dunking how long before more pins form? Why do all the shrooms on the cake seem to break their veils at the same time even if they are small? His two cakes that have fruited had one big shroom and several smaller ones, and all the veils seem to open at the same time. Last thing is there a way to put a shroom back on a cake if you accidentally break it off? I doubt it, but I thought I would ask.

I read a post some where that said that some one put a pin back on a cake and it grew, or some thing like that. I guess that it just depends on how long its been off and how big it is.

I figured it was a long shot. I read the same post, so I brought it up as an afterthought. Hopefully the dunking and rolling in verm will make them pin in different spots a bit better. Thus far all of his cakes have only pinned in one group. So there has been a pin on both of them that did not get a chance to grow because it came off with the others.

My real question is how long between flushes after a dunk, and why they mature at the same time, regardless of size?

I always pick them as they mature and there are always pins forming for me but I do hear about people picking all the mushrooms at the same time then letting another flush come,and that is a frist to here all the veils breaking at the same time unless they all are starting to mature at the same time and in that case that would be a good thing becase you can pick them all at once and if need be print them all at once.

yeah just take some white glue and paste that sucker back on there in the same spot.hahah just kidding no you can't put it back on if it falls off and it sounds like your friend is growing B+ mushrooms because they tend to have one or so really big mushrooms and they get so big that they fall of the cakes that is normal.why do you get one or so big ones?it's because the mycelium is given all the nutrients the that srongest growing mushrooms and B+ tend to do that alot.here's a pic of some B+ mushrooms

note:most mushrooms can get one or two big mushrooms and the rest small ones not just B+ but this is very common for the B+ to do this

OK, thanks guys. My friend has some AFR incubating right now for his next experiment. I think he wants to try some EQ or PR next. Mexicubes look pretty cool too. He also really wants to try the Texas strain at some point, since he lives there, but has not seen much info about them. Just so there is no confusion, the pins that come off are on the same spot of the myc as the mature ones. He has not gotten any monsters yet, but one had a broken veil this morning, and he let it go until he got home from work, and they had doubled in size! Is twice as much shroom stronger than half as much with the veil attached still? Quantity over 'quality'?

Cool, and fruits yet? The B+ is cool, but my buddies wants to try all kinds of strains just to observe the differences.

Actually, Psilocybin_monkey, you CAN put a pin back on a cake, but probably not on a casing. I am the one who made the original post about this. When my
ex-roommate was growing, he had an EQ cake with small pins, and he opened the jar and accidentally knocked down a pin (he was growing invitro). He told me that the pin rolled along the side of the cake as the jar was being lifted, and the pin ended up on the top of the cake. He was both lazy and frustrated, so he just left it there, figuring that it was better to leave the dislodged pin there than to try to open the jar yet again and risk knocking other pins down.

We were both very surprised to see that it grew to be quite big! Remember, the entire mushroom is made of the same mycelium as the cake, so if it touches the cake and it is not yet mature, then it can absorb nutrients and continue to get bigger until it matures. Unlike a plant, a mushroom doesn't have roots, so it doesn't need to be connected to the substrate in any specific way to get bigger; it just needs to be touching it.

kramer picked a good sized shroom one time and just sat it down and forgot about it
about 3 days later it had grew 2-3 more inches and broke it's veil
it was sitting on plastic
the point:mycelium is some bad ass shit that wants to live

says kramer
