when to harvest my shrooms? --pics--
    #2151781 - 12/02/03 02:31 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

ok all the shrooms that are fruiting now seem to be at different stages, some still pinning, some are nice and large looking, and some the caps seem to have opened up, let me know when you think i should harvest the largest of the group











thanks for any advice/tips

You need to look under the caps if possible. You want to harvest when the veil starts to tear away from the cap. To harvest, gently twist the 'shroom away from the cake at the base. Have fun, and good job.

I wait until the vail pulls away from the cap, at that point the first 4 to the line get to be spore prints, everyone else gets to be lunch.

do you harvest them all at once? or do you only pick the ones with the torn veil?

I would harvest them individually to maximize the size of each fruit. In your case, some are well developed while others need to be allowed to mature. Harvest the ones you'd like to turn into prints when the cap is fully opened and becoming but not yet completely flat. I see several in your pics that are ready to be printed.
Harvest all the mature ones and allow the rest to ripen individually. Since you're doing the cake method as opposed to a casing, even pinset is probably impossible.

Its just so easy to make spore prints....just get a small tuppeware air tight container...wipe it with rubbning alchohol then wipe a piece of foil also then through a open cap ion it and seal the dish till the next day...remopve it and fold up the foil and boom... a print.

ok i just picked the ones that i thought were open, and i am gonna make some prints, but 2 of the ones i picked have odd things with them, one has a very faint green tint on part of its cap, and the other looks like the caps gotten soft, possibly from too much water? anyways, are both of these fine to make prints out of and eat?
both of these could just be normal for shrooms and maybe i am just over paranoid? thanks

SPORE PRINTS
The green tint is normal. at least in my case. Almost every shroom turned green slowly when i harvested it. By the days passing by they are getting more green. For spore printing i don't know. I have choosen the most beautiful shrooms for prints because i didn't want to risk contam in next jars. But probably you can use these 2 also.


EATING
But for eating you let them grow a bit too long, i like to pick them faster just after the veil breakes of. That is 20 hours earlier than you did. The cap should be just slightly open, then it is at max potency for its size.

thanks for the tips, i jsut put them in with the tin-foil so we will see in the morning if they dropped their spores, i have a feeling i am gonna have a few to pick in the morning. its ok to eat the stems of the ones that i took the caps off to make prints right?
