Harvesting Question (w/ pic)
    #3341849 - 11/10/04 03:41 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)



So the veil is the white line under the cap that separated from the main stalk of the mushroom right? The veil 'breaking' is when it actually detaches from the stalk, as it appears the large one on the back has done, correct?

I'm just a little confused on when to harvest for consumption and when to harvest for spore printing. I know for spore printing, you cut the cap off at the stalk and place it on an index card, but it doesn't seem like i'd get a very big print off the cap that size... For spore printing should I wait until it opens up and becomes more circular and flat?

I have had a lot of fun doing this (my first time to try) and would like to do it again so I figure I might as well make a spore print. Once I get a print made, I should just harvest the rest when the veil breaks, correct?

I guess I'm just a little confused on terminology. Thanks a lot for everyone's help, I never could've done all this without the great help I've gotten on here--particularly from Sam1912, who is The Man.

Those look young. I'm new to this as well though so don't listen to me.

I would wait a little while longer before harvesting that one on the back left for spore printing.  Let the cap open just a wee bit more.  Don't let it get completely circular and flat though or the spores will already be dropping.  You will most definately know when the veil has broken completely, it will look just like a normal mushroom outside with a domed cap and open underside.

As far as the rest go for consumption, yea, just harvest them when the veil breaks.  I usually wait until a few of them are reaching maturity at the same time, and then I harvest everything off the cake and throw it in a ziplock baggy and fill it with water to re-dunk my cake and then set out on the second flush after 12 hours in the dunk.

Sam1912 is definately the man.  :thumbup:

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?

That is what I am thinking, as they only started 4, maybe 5 days ago. I just am not sure exactly what I'm looking for to signal me to harvest them. These are B+, in case anyone couldn't tell. Should the caps open up more fully when they are done growing?

Yea they appear to be almost mature now, I'd say check on them in around 6 or 8 hours and they will probably have open caps, but then again they may continue growing.

Just keep checking them every 4 or so hours and you'll slowly see them tearing and opening up.



This is one with an open veil.

you should wait until that on in the back left matures a bit more, too. Then harvest the whole cake and dunk/roll again.
