Can someone clear some things up for me?
    #2177104 - 12/14/03 05:06 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

In the newbie growing guide using the jar technique, it says that the key to good mushrooms is the age they are picked at. So say I have a normal mushroom growing on my cake. Should I just let it keep growing until it's too big for the terrainium, or should I harvest them at like 1 or 2 inches?? Same goes for aborts?

you usually want to harvest them as soon as the veil starts to tear. as the aborts go, pick the immediately because they will rot and can ruin your cakes with contams.

Even when they are really tiny (the aborts)?

*Tiny as in like 1cm or less...*

Dont pick the mushrooms until they have opened their caps.

Like said already, you'll want ot pick the aborts as soon as you can tell they have really aborted. It takes a few runs to figure out what aborts look like. They cease to stop growing and they are usually a little darker in color.

Does that mean they begin growing again?
