First flush question
    #3611878 - 01/11/05 11:11 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

So one of my golden teacher cakes finally had a flush. I have two questions.
1.) Does it matter that 7-8 shrooms grew off one spot the size of a quarter ($0.25)? Shouldn't they grow from all over the cake? How can I get them to?

2.) I know you should wait until the shroom opens up to pick it, but these guys aren't very long at all. The longest was 4inches when its veil opened. Can i wait to pick the others till they get bigger? Will they get bigger? Do small shrooms mean I did something wrong or does it mean there is just more nutrients left in the cake for future flushes?

This cake was not dunk and rolled. I have about half straight to chamber birthed and the other half birthed, dunked, and rolled in vermiculate. Will it take a long time for the myc to get around the Verm, colonize and finally pin?

1. Is normal for mushies to group together in clusters . To improve a more even pinset ... could be lots of factors here to consider i.e. air exchanges , humidity ,temp, time of birthing . It could be the colony was just not quite ready to produce in abundance , next flush may be better .

2.If you wait too long , they will start dumping spores by the gill-full , not good for future flushes , spores lying on surface will inhibit future flushes .
One should pick just as veil begins to tear , if wanting to collect prints wait till cap just starts to open then pick and print .

good job trip, i'm just going to throw a few more comments in on top of your great advice. :smile:

if you have some that opened before others and you want to wait for the others to open, then cut the cap off of the one that's opened already... you're not going to leave the stem there long enough to rot. just cut the cap off and print it or dry it or throw it in the fridge in a paper bag, whatever you had planned for it. i promise the stem won't mold and contam in 2-3 days without a cap, i've done it more than once.

your shrooms are small, eh? you didn't dunk 'n roll? sounds like they didn't have enough water. dunk 'n roll, then double end case those puppies after this flush. it'll take a smidgen longer for your pins to show up, but the overall size difference in your flushes will make up for it.

good luck my friend.
