hairy stems
    #365638 - 08/02/01 04:08 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)


hello, i 've got hairy stems.
i read an old post that says hairy stems are signs of high humidity, but my caps all have fuzz on them too, which is supposedly low humidity. thats as much as i know about hairy stems.
my question is.
when harvesting these things should i cut the stem at the hair, leaving this with the cake, or cut the stem off at the cake and take the hair and all?

can the cake use the bottom half of a chopped stem if it is covered with mycelia?


much obliged

No, if the caps have fuzz on them your humidity is too high.
Overall, your humidity is too high. Fan more, entertain your air :laugh:.

No , do not chop the fruits off. Try to pull them off of the cakes as cleanly as possible. Old stumps are good ways to contaminate your cake. Basicly, they will rot and mold over while new flushes are trying to come in. So, no slicing and dicing.

Whoops, *as he puts down the scalpel* Yeah you should pull them off cleanly. Duh.

Shit... If anything is worth doing, it's worth doing right.
