Yes I have read the info on when to pick...
    #3437885 - 12/02/04 04:17 PM (12 years, 5 days ago)


This kit is not going to win any awards for beauty. I recognise that the irregularity in growth speed indicates that my first batch wasn't grown in the optimum way.

I have read the guides regarding waiting for the veil etc, and looked at the pictures, but these Goldern Teachers look different, and as a newbie, I can't tell how ready they are.

I need to pick the biggest one soon because I am running out of headspace in my propagator. At the same time, I don't want to pick too early and lose potency. Pick now? Yes or no? Please don't msg me to read FAQ etc. I have done a search of the forums on this subject and every newbie asking for simple help is slammed for asking newbie questions. "This question is asked all the time" etc. To newbies, advice about other grows is often difficult to apply to their own. Sorry.

Also, the fur at the base of the 3 biggest mushrooms is just vert', and safe, so long as it's cleaned off, right? What is your fave solution for cleaning vert?

Many thanks in advance.

it dont matter about head room, the shroom will just touch the top and keep growing. i would pick them 3 biggest ones in 24 hours, and let the rest grow.

Yeah, also it looks like you have an abort in the top left, don't let that go too long

I'm not going to risk it. Have lopped them anyway, but just wondered for the sake of interested.

Just one more thing...

The picture on the website looks yummy, whereas my shrooms look quite shite. The shrooms on this pic look like the ones you would find in the forest ie. the heads are mushroom shaped, whereas mine still look like balls on a stick. Does this mean that the veil hasn't been broken yet? (This is starting to remind me of my last girlfriend).

cept for those real black aborts those look plenty yummy to me. If those big ones would mature a bit more they'd look like that. The cap will expand once the veil rips.

yes, the veils havn't torn yet on your shrooms. They arent far from tearing on the big 3. Like psychoslut said, another 24 hours, then let the rest grow. You do by the way have some rotten pins. Try and catch them sooner next time. With the whole Veil thing, you will know when it breaks. It covers the gills on the bottom of the cap. It will be noticeablely stuck on the stem, and the cap will be opened.

K. I'm going to keep growing them. What's the worse that could happen? You take a risk every day - getting out of bed, crossing the street, or sicking your face in a fan.

Very last 2 newbie questions.
What about cleaning that vert? Just a bit of spring water or something more?
Anyone ever thought about putting the tinyest bit of diluted bleach in the resevoir at the bottom? Kill all contams etc, or would it kill shrooms, even if very diluted?

Yes just rinse the verm off, im pretty sure. and for your second question, Use h202, (10% hydrogen peroxide, 90% water).
