Cleaning & handling of first flush
    #1971122 - 10/02/03 12:20 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

My friend picked the first flush of his first 2 cakes and was blown away with the volume they produced. :smile:
Thanks to everyone's help for his success!
Unfortunately, he doesn't have a scale to weigh them.

There is still a lot of verm residue embeded in the bases.
What's the best way to clean them and when .. should he wait for them to dry first?
They are getting stained from what little handling they already have had.
Any other drying and prep tips are welcome.

I would wait. Its might be a bit harder cleaning them off, but they won't bruise as easily when they're cracker dry. I would fan dry, but the humidity is really low where I live.

My friends always complain about the verm on the shrooms. But hey, that's the burdon you gotta carry!

I just brush the stuff off, no big deal. Fan dry for at least 48 hours on a medium/high setting.

Thanks for the advice, my friend was hoping they would fall off when drying but had no way of knowing for sure.  :smile:

The 2 cakes were 1/2 pt Eq and were birthed slightly premature.
Cold shocked & dunked for 24 hrs a la Magash.
They were in a poor man's pod with only hydrotron & water. If he did anything right it was fanning 6 to 10 times a day as well as misting the hell out of them... these cakes were moist!

Here is a pic of the pretty one!

that's my pic limit for today .. damn!

That looks awesome. I never got cakes that fruited like that. That's why I went on to casing and outdoor grows.

thanks Ekstaza, I don't know if he was just lucky or what! :smile:
It was very cool to watch them transform from pins to shrooms over 1 day, I hear.

There is a 3rd cake and it is pinning wildly.
The other 5 are recovering from crumbling into a pan .. we'll see how a casing goes. If he can ever find a place to get some straw he will really be happy.

AFOAF Suspended a wire mesh basket in front of a fan and does that for about 24 or so hours then into the dessacant chamber with damprid for another 24 or so. Just brush that verm and myc off, whatever is left just eat it!

My friend moved his basket to the back of the fan and it looks like it is sucking the moisture right out of them!
