Pick up of the SHROOMS
    #2044082 - 10/26/03 05:59 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Ok people i have a problem. I'm a first time grower and i've read all the instructions. But i'm still in a dilema. Is it time to pick the first shroom or not? So here is a picture of it and tell me should i pick it or wait for a while...


tHis is the whole grow kit, with two shrooms bigger than others and i'm wondering should i pick them up?



Here is enlarged picture of the shrooms hat. Is this shroom ready to be picked?



And here is compared size of the shroom so that you see how big it
is.



:confused:And few more questios...
To what size do the Equador shrooms grow?
And how do i prevent the shroom from turning green when drying?
What is the best and the quickest way to dry my shrooms?

Thank you and sorry for the stupid questions. :smirk:

I'd pick right when the veil is beginning to rip. Opinion seems to vary on that matter though. Wait a little while maybe.

well... it's obviously already picked... heheh

but i would've waited at least until the veil started to tear (usually until the cap starts to open up a tad)

I'd wait a day.

I usually wait until after the veil has broken and the cap starts to "marble", or get swirls of black in it.  That's about as big as it's going to get.

Here's how I dry mine:

I have a floor fan, so I put it in front of that, on a plate, on 2 paper towels.  I just put them in a big pile.  I dry them for 48 hours, and then on to the dessicant chamber.

I got screening from home depot, it was $7 for a huge roll of it.  I bought epsom salt for like two bucks (you can use damp-rid, but this is cheaper).  Bake the epsom for 45 mins at 450 in a ceramic dish.  Wait for it to cool completely (about an hour or so), and break all that stuff up into powder (or as close as you can get).  Put that in your tupperware, then put the screen, then a paper towel, then your shrooms.  You can probably go without the screen but I like to use it.

Anyway, leave that closed for 48 hours again.  When that's done, your shrooms should be dried.  I store mine in a plastic baggie, in a tupperware, in the freezer.  Although I'm going shopping today for some chocolate moulds.  :smile:

Too late now probably, but you could use some light over them to get them to stand more erect. Anyways nice flush.
