Hey guys and gals help me out
    #3332498 - 11/08/04 09:26 AM (12 years, 27 days ago)

I've got a few mushrooms growing in my terranium at home. There growing in some cow pats that I got from a field near by. I'm just wondering if I should allow the spores to drop or pick them before they open. (I'm asking this because I know when you grow them from scatch you dont want the extra spores). Also, after this first flush if i don't see any pins should I mist the cow pats. Some one drop me a line if thet've ever done this kinda of thing before. Thannk you.

theres nothing wrong with having yourr spores drop.....

if you want to take prints then your going to have to let the cap break of the viel....

if you pick them b4 they break the viel your picking the a lil imature and have a chance of having bigger shrooms if you want...

i guess its all up to you...if you dont want to wait go ahead and pick...

i always pick as soon a the viel breaks so you dont get to many spores on your much...not that its bad... i just hate having my lips and tonge all purple when im tripping IMO......


YES MIST HEAVLY!! once your fisrt flush it is done most of the moisture is gone so you want to rehydrate it in some form.... some people like to mist big time..others like to dunk the whole cashing..

I have another question. Is there any benifit to allowing my mushrooms to grow as big as they can, or when the cap fully opens should I pick. I guess what I'm asking is will it hurt to just let them keep on truckin and see what happens.

well alot of people around here say that the smaller the stronger. if you let them over grow theyre a lil weaker... but i kinda see it the same cuz all though they might be weaker theyre bigger..

IMO i like to harvest when the cap starts opening upward just a tab after it breaks the viel (picture pirfect)

it should never look dry... what kinda terrium you have set up??
