Cased Bulk Grow - Harvesting Tips Anyone???
    #2550179 - 04/12/04 04:43 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

After harvesting a good flush, there are always tiny little mushrooms left that you know will not grow anymore, (whether aborted or whatever).

Question:

In terms of preparation for the next flush, should the surface be picked clean, or should the tiny ones be left alone to shrivel?

Try topick off as many as possible, tweezers do
a good jod at this. The problem with leaving aborts
on the casing, is they tend to rot.

I agree that they should be picked clean (over maybe half a day to let little ones to mature a little more). AFAOF hasn't had so much of a problem with aborts rotting, it just seems like later flushes do much better with everything removed.

Do rotting mushrooms induce contamination?

Those little babies are nice and potent too(weight to actives anyway).
Would be a total waste not to save them. Or so I've heard anyway it's not like I would know personally or anything.

^^^ yes, very true, small mushrooms do have higher percentages of active compounds in terms of their mass, but be careful not to eat any rotten small mushrooms, even if they have been dried out, as they could contain nasties that might make you sick :sad:

So, how can you tell a rotting mushroom? Black caps?
