Another really dumb question...
    #358616 - 07/22/01 04:29 AM (16 years, 3 months ago)

Sorry for the dumb question, but I've seen this word used over and over, and I'm not sure what it means.... What is a flush? And yes, I'm aware that a flush is what occurs when you press the lever on your toilet =)
Thanks

I?m not going to answer any more of your questions if they stay at that level.
Go to the Grow/Find section or use the Search function.

but anyways. its when you push the lever on the toilet.
just kidding.
a flush is where you "flush" (remove) all of the fruit bodies when they are ready.
when they are ready you ask?
before the veil breaks / b4 the caps start to open,
what is a veil you ask?
its the thin tissue that protects the spores, that is attached to the cap & stem.
usually you have an even pinset when you "flush" your casing.
what is an even pinset you ask?
its where all your fruit bodies are even in growth.

that should do you in as far as answers....
...need anymore?

shroomph....i like your name!!

Anno dont bother posting at all if that is all you have to say.
Fair enough you have a point, but just give the newbies a break.

thanks fortyounces2freedom =) It's nice to have a little help. Especially since I still haven't decided what tek to use yet for my first growing attempt. I do have another question for you...
Why do you remove the fruit bodies before the veil breaks instead of after the veil breaks? Does this affect the next flush?

Thanks

yeah, I was planning on using the MMGG for my first attempt, but someone told me to try the straw tek. I think now, I will stay with the MMGG for my first try, even if it doesn't yield as many shrooms as the straw tek. I may try the straw tek later.
Thanks for the advice

No, you can do something yourself instead of posting stupid quiestions(your definition!), and you won?t be a newbie in a reasonable time.
I off course was born with the gift of mushroom cultivation and newer was a newbie at all.(if you belive it)
That?s the reason didn?t have to post such questions.

I gave the guy a well meant advice to visit the grow section and use the search function. That was my advice, that?s why I replied to the post.

That's okay Anno, you don't have to explain yourself to me. You are obviously on a much higher 'shroom' scale than me and I obviously don't deserve to be replied to by someone of your status here. Perhaps someday, I will be as knowledgeable as yourself and I will understand how you feel when you see a "stupid" question. However, I hope that I will provide help and show courtesy to the most extreme newbie, regardless of how smart I am. I apologize for you reading my newbie post and therefore wasting your time replying to me. Feel free to never reply to my posts again; I'm sure if I'm desperate enough, I will find the answers elsewhere. Oh, and thank you for the links... I will study them.

Not at all the case. Everybody deserves his questions answered, as long as they are reasonable and as long they don?t begin with Another really dumb question...
>I apologize for you reading my newbie post and therefore
> wasting your time replying to me.
1. I don?t prefer either newbies nor "experts"
2. If I felt i was waisting my time, I wouldn?t replyed at all, I replied to give you a guideline how to come to results through studying the information available on the Internet.

don't give anno shit newb! hehe just fuckin wit ya... but seriously... anno is well respected here and i am big fan of his! your question did display blatant fucking ignorance :smile: reminiscent of some schoolkid wanting the teacher to sit his exam for him... do some reading! all these quesions are answered with a quick perusal of many of the documents available on line or offline in books (tmc, o&o books, etc...)

a "flush" is the developing mushrooms that grow simultaneously as the result of an "even pinset"... an even pinset is primordia that develops equally across the casing... with a good even pinset you will get a large yield from the first flush... the second flush is the result of hyphal knots that started developing under the first flush... when recased these will grow almost immediately after... stamets says in tmc that 60-70% of the total yield from a casing can come from the first two flushes if you do it correctly...

hope that helps!
