When do I pick? With pics...
    #3282829 - 10/27/04 04:33 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

So, when should I start picking my babies?! Should I cut them off one at a time as they start dropping spores, or what?







Thank you all again for all your help in getting to this stage!  :heart: :stoned:

Those look ready to pick now. Alot of people pick right before or right when the veil is tearing. Also keeps your tub from getting messy with spores. BTW Great job  :thumbup:

Given that you've waited this lone, it looks like you could make some nice prints with a few of those.

I've thought about it, but I don't have any jars sterilized. :frown: I guess I could do some real quick. I don't have a govebox to work in, though......

Can someone point me to a quick and easy print-making tek?

You'd want to consult someone else before going through with it, but I think you don't have to sterilize the jar. A nice cleaning and rinsing should do the job shouldn't it? If it wasn't especially dirty I mean.

This, I mean for the jar you'd place over a printing cap. If you're printing onto the bottom of the jar... yeah, you might want to be a bit more sterile :smile:

I thought you stuck the foil inside a jar, and PC'd it... then printed in that. I can't find where I saw that, though.

You do not want to cut the shrooms when you harvest. Grab, twist and pull. I wait till all the caps on the casing (pretty much) open up flat then I pick them.

You can use a ziplock bag to print in.They're sterrile right out of the box.Just put the cap in let the spores drop and take out the cap.Then make your syringes right from the bag.Just stab a sterrile syringe of water through the bag,squirt and draw up,and your ready to go.

Hmm.. that sounds pretty cool, actually.

I've already got jars with tinfoil and a syringe in them in the PC though....  lol

Err... well, um.. my PC is too small to fit a syringe with water in it.. lol... How do I deal with that?  :confused:

Theres a tek that involves just using a pot to cook it in. Boil the water, suck, squirt, repeat. Then wrap it in tin foil and boil it for x amount of time. Of course... you'd need a big enough pot too :smile:

Zip lock bags are not guaranteed to be sterile out of the box.

Yeah, I knew that actually. I suppose you could always PC one.

MushBus is right. Someone posted an email that was directed to someone at ZipLock and they said they do not guarantee sterility in their bags straight out of the box. But for the most part, they are relatively sterile. I would never spend the time to sterilize a zip lock baggy, but then again if one bag goes wrong for me, chances are I have another 3 or 4 ready.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
