Shitloads of aborts
    #3081536 - 09/02/04 08:08 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

is what I've got on my straw brick. I had like 70+ pins, about 20 grew into proper mushrooms and matured. When the first flush is completely over, what shall I do? If I dunk it, will I get a new set of pins?

The ones I have are mainly about 1 millimetre high, going blue and not growing.

Fanx!

Pick them off... they are potent and will rot if you leave them there.

I wouldn't dunk it either, it's asking for contams. You'll get a fine second and probably thir flush with out dunking.


P.S. The 2nd flush is often better than the first.

Hold on that could very well be your second flush! unless they are aborts they will flush after the myc has rested from the first flush. Initial pinset most often creates your first and second flushes. My suggestion would be let it be and see :wink: second flush are also often times larger than the first. This is all basic mycology BTW. GL

Yeah, pick all of them off, it is a pain, but like fastfred said they will rot. Instead of dunking, a friend of mine just pours some bottled water over the top (slow enough for it to absorb) and it works wonders. He also usually gets what you got, lots of aborts the first go-a-round and a nice 2nd, 3rd, and forth just by pouring water over it.

Cool, thanks all. I'll wait and see if any of them start growing. Instead of dunking, I've put the brick on top of some wet vermiculite.

I would do what Hyphae said, sounds like its your second flush.

I've seen more people fuckup a beautiful second flush by scraping and recasing casings never realizing that the casing was loaded with pins waiting to bolt. IME I've seen few flushes keep coming without a rest period as a matter of fact I never seen one period, I think thats why they call them flushes? :wink: Anyway glad to hear your waiting you'll be able to tell easily if those pins start to rot just by looking at them and if in doubt catch a fingernail under a cap and pullup very gently if it's rotting it will easily come off with no resistance.
