After first flush...
    #2024986 - 10/20/03 11:23 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Hey all,


So today I'm planning on harvesting the first flush of 6 casings. My question is , after these are all plucked, should a put a thin layer of casing material over the spots? Do I need to cover the casings up again?

Thanks for the help

Just try and twist + pull the mushrooms so there is little damage to the surface. If there are big bald spots left from where the mushrooms were picked cover them with a thin layer of damp casing.

Other than that, just treat it like you would first flush, and you'll get another flush!

cold shock 'em. I think you can dunk 'em, too, but don't quote me on that. And yeah, put another small casing layer on it.

I turn sometimes the casing and use the other side with a new layer.:)

Patch @ your discretion, you shouldn't have to cover.

after you harvest, could you just leave the casing as is and still get a second flush?

Yes, but patching will probably lend itself to a slightly better flush. This guy I know didn't patch his last casing (1"), and all of the subsequent flushes were fine. How thick and how large?

The reason people usually patch the bald spots after harvesting is to protect against contamination; the bald spots can contaminate more easily if they're not patched. As long as you keep the casing moist and you added enough casing you should be able to make it last 5 flushes.

Also you want a nice level casing to get a better pinset. Patch the low spot is what I say.

Thanks for the insite... I had a pretty good harvest...

I dont understand why one of my flushes just exploded with an abundancy of mushrooms and the other ones, particularialy one produced only a 1/4 as much... any ideas?

When might the 2nd flush be popping up?
Anyways, I have them on a cookie sheet in front of a fan... tommorow ill hopefully get the dessicant chamber set up.
