If 2 shrooms have grown more, cant you just pick em?
    #2427783 - 03/13/04 05:17 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Theres 2 shrooms alone and on one side of the cake that are mature, veil broken completely and caps flattening out, but elsewhere on the cake there are shrooms but the veils are not broken and they are round still.

Would it harm the cake just to pluck the two ready ones?

They say all at once, But I fear that if I wait the big ones will get too big.

~thanks~

yeh apparently it messes up the flush if you don't pick all at the same time
but cujo is always more worried about sporulating caps messing up the flush more
so he always picks early bloomers when they are ready
rather than let them get over ripe
and "rot on the vine"

Who says all at once? I'm not familiar with that rule. I'd go ahead and pick them.

Yeah you can pick them as you like.
Maybe people say all at once due to
casing/cake damage, but if your careful
and there not attatched to pins, sure, pick and eat :grin:

Twist and pull, if your carfull you wont harm your casing substrate one bit. I always pick mature mushies when there are still non mature ones because i had the mess they make when they drop there spores. They get everywhere and dirty my shrooms. HEHE. I like them nice and clean.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.
