To harvest or not to harvest???
    #3528433 - 12/21/04 06:10 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

hello again. looking beautiful. looks like a good flush so i would go ahead and pick them all and redunk and roll. i use some hemostats to pick but you can sub tweezers. just go down to the base and and give a little twist and tug. if its hard to get off just put finger on top of cake and pull harder. pretty.

I'd let 1 from each cake get to the point where its veil is tearing, then make 1 syringe from each print. Then you'll have billions of spores per syringe.
