i'm sorry, i know its stupid...
    #1858668 - 08/28/03 01:08 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

gt's are growing well, and somewhat fast, but the largest pin is still only about 3" long, and while it looks good enough to eat, i want to wait...and besides, picking someone elses mushrooms behind their back is bad karma :wink:

is there a source of pictures from the underside of growing shrooms as they mature so i can know what to expect, and when, in my friend's mushroom's growth patterns? at the rate they've been growing i almost expected to have some shrooms to eat by tomorrow, saturday, or sunday, but the waiting can be tough as i'm sure you all know. they're so beautiful i want them now! but i will wait as long as possible, of course. they've doubled in size a couple times in a period of a single day, and then just putting on maybe an inch a day, but i don't know how tall they'll get before the cap starts opening up a bit. they're getting big, with nice stems, but the caps are still very much closed...

i've heard that they seem to take a long time to grow, then in a matter of a day or two just shoot out to big sizes...is this generally the case? i just want to know when to expect them roughly

sorry i couldn't find anything about this, i know its a very newby-esque question, but i couldn't locate anything like this when i tried :frown: :blush:

When the veil breaks pick them. Size doesn't matter here.

"i've heard that they seem to take a long time to grow, then in a matter of a day or two just shoot out to big sizes...is this generally the case?"

yes.

once the caps open (but not fully, you don't want it to sporulate too much) then is the time to pick, usually it's better to have them a little young than too mature, also, people go by when the veil just begins to tear, but this can be different between strains. there are plenty of pics on this site, do a search and im sure you'll fine what your looking for.

yeah, i'm just wondering how long it will be till the caps start opening up is all...of course i can't get a definite answer, but i'd like to see some day-by-day pics of someone's grow that could show me (roughly) when to expect things...if every grow is that much different though, i'll just wait blindly...

ok, so it could be anywhere from tonight to saturday, good to know :smile:

these seem to be growing a little bit slower than those, but thats fine with me...they're perfectly beautiful, and the anticipation is enjoyable to be quite honest. being excited constantly for a few days...haven't felt like that since i was a little kid waiting for christmas, and it never seemed like it would come, but inevitably always did :wink:

increase the dark cycle to 20 hours (4 hours light)...they seem to grow faster that way...
