newbie harvesting question
    #2116238 - 11/17/03 01:48 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

i'm in the period of my first (ever) flush. is it obvious when the first flush has ended? in other words is there a couple days pause between the end of the first flush and beginning of the second flush? Or do you just kind of figure when growing has slowed significantly and then do dunk and roll?
another question about harvesting, im confused as when to harvest exactly, since the cakes are in a rubber maid tub i can't see under the veils unless i were to individually pick up each cake frequently which i am supposed to avoid right? so do you just wait until the cap is very flat or what?
any links and/or answers much appreciated,
thanks you guys are lifesavers

your cakes are sitting on lids right. if so just pick the whole thing up, only touching the lid. as far as completion, the veil when it has broken, most the time it will be hanging on the stem.

this has been a message from a twisted ass mutha fucka. and if you dont like it.........EAT A DICK!

Dont worry about waiting until the first flush is completely over. What you want to do is make sure you pick every shroom at its peak. Youll notice the edges of the cap flatten out and start to turn inwards when this happens pick that shroom. Some people will tell you to harvest the whole cake at once but in my experience leaving 1 or 2 immature ones never hurt anything. happy shrooming

There is a small break in between flushes where the mycellium readies itself to push out fruits again. Your first flush will be near it's end when a few mushrooms reach maturity but it may be different for each cake. If you have a mushrooms approaching the point of the veil breaking you may be near the end. Also when no more aborts show up, you are at least midway through.
I also suggest that you pick by mushroom maturity just before the veil breaks if you are going for more spores you can just cut the veil away with an exacto knife and set the cap on photo-paper. Your mushrooms will be at their peak this way though the potency loss isn't a hugely substantial amount.
