Ecuador mycobag question
    #3251841 - 10/19/04 04:04 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

When is the best time to harvest Equador strain especially when in a mycobag? Like what is about the average size you will most likely see, and like should you wait until the cap splits open and spreads out wide to harvest or not? Please fill me in thanks

Also: Some cap have spread apart from the stem but aren't nearly as wide and flat like most of the mature picture of Ecuador Ive seen...

and: If there are small, darker cap shrooms with large stems (appear to be aborts) but it looks like a couple green lines are going up the stem but aren't on the cap would it be safe to eat?

hey whats up I grow equador.
a mycobag? did you ever try anything better?

You have any pictures of what you are talking about?
else you can pick them anytime, but I pick mine right before the cap breaks aways stem.  That I have found is most prime time, and I always am careful not to blue them :smile:  pz

When you mean before they break away from the stem what if some are about 1/2 inch in diameter and just barely are off the stem? Is that just a miss fortune in size...?

i believe hes speaking of when the VEIL seperates from the stem .

thats normally the best harvest time for any mushey, "when the veil seperates from the stem."

oooh, well looks like most of mine have broken away but the caps seem rather small... but this is my first time so im not real sure of average sizes.

So basically pick it when it is the cap still looks like a more circular ball shape rather than an open umbrella? Also if you pick them before they drop spores how does another flush grow...?

in a myco bag I have had some as large as 11 inches long, the agerage size
when I picked them was about 7 inches, usualy I harvest them rigth before
the veil breaks and the ones I want to print I allow to fully develop
I usulay do that with the first 4-5 that come up

How big (in diameter) where your caps? I have some long ones but with small caps (about 1/2 or a little more).

The other flushes grow not because of more spores, but because of the still living mycelium deeper in the cake.
