Why not just harvest exclusively the pins and aborts?
    #28844713 - 07/10/24 07:39 AM (8 days, 10 hours ago)

Obviously I am a complete apprentice neophyte and know nothing. This post comes after eating several aborts this morning. They seem to be quite powerful.

So my question is, why wait for them to grow into full fruits, since a cursory reading indicates that the smaller ones are so.much stronger. Like why wait?

Seems like if you're growing them just for personal use, picking all the little ones off and drying them would work just as well.

Literally my first grow. Just harvested 10g dry weight of fruits after the vail broke (veil? Vail?). Golden teachers.

Seems like I have a ton of aborts. Is that a bad thing?

Maybe it seems practical to you if you only need a couple grams of fruit but ultimately it's totally impractical.

You will never achieve a proper yield or grow mature mushrooms by harvesting them young.
A mature mushroom is as strong as a small mushroom so why would you settle for a small mushroom if it would grow much larger at maturity?

Not sure why you had a lot of aborts, but they can happen.

If they are an abort, you can tell and you can take them right then.

They are your mushrooms, I imagine you can do whatever you like?

Thank you that makes sense. Kind of killing the goose that lays the golden egg.

If you're getting aborts go ahead an pull them, but I would worry more about WHY you're getting aborts than what to do with them.

This discussion has been around.

If you wanna get silly though, imagine cutting up a block of mycelium that just started fruiting, and eat it like a big slice of cake.

Wait! No, frost it and serve it as cake! With a glass of milk of course, (also let the person know after serving it.. that they about to see some shit).
