lol, deal.
Ok here's the thing..

"Plant: living organism with neither the power of movement nor special organs of digestion."

Mushrooms digest.. The mycelium takes over the dung/substrate/etc. whereas a plant just grows roots to pick up nutrients from what it's growing in. That's why after a while cakes have no use after a few flushes.. The 'shrooms digest all of the substrate. Pretty sure that's all correct.

Holy sheepsh...t! Ok.. I was just speaking colloquial english. Humble apologies. I figure you got plants & animals, 'shrooms aren't animals, so they're plants. Simple 'nuff? Don't get tech on me. I just want to grow 'em then grow me, ok?

What I was asking (and I prune, ie cut back, reduce, trim, by twisting them off, that seems to get everything but not take off a lot of the cake), what I was asking is how you select which ones to prune. I've noted that these huge clusters of pins never all mature anyway, so might as well space them out. Select the healthiest looking and nuke the rest. (For the literal minded, I don't actually use a nuclear device to prune, nuke is a colloquialism for get rid of or destroy.)

Some people seem to get a hair up their ass abot the slightest mistake.

Grammatically prune is a perfectly acceptable word - we all know what you mean.

If the pins are no longer growing - pick them.
The fewer fruits you have growing at one time, the larger they will get. It is a trade off between size and numbers.

To solve this problem - use a more nutrient rich substraight (rye or birdseed) and case them with a good casing material (coco fiber).

Hongus posted some pics the other day - check them out.

Ahh.. ok
Sorry for misunderstanding.
Once you see the pins that are going to become mature shrooms, there doesn't seem to be much reason to waste the cake's energy on pins that will just end up aborting. The thing is that you have to be able to spot the potential aborts, which is best learned with experience.. They'll be the ones that don't grow or stop growing while the others get taller, and will start to turn blue and then black. This's the sign that the cake has stopped paying attention to these ones, and if you pick them before they're too far gone and start molding, they can be eaten just like normal ones. In fact, in terms of weight they're a little more potent than the maturing shrooms from what I've read. So yeah, Clip 'em off and do what you want with 'em. =)

I dont prune abhorts.. theyre pretty enough for me not to cut them off of my cakes.. heh

btw... ya know, fungi arent plants.. 5 kingdoms.. one is plants, one animals, and another one is fungi.. if fungi are plants, then plants are slow moving cows

Dunno, could be true. But I read recently (forgot who said it, sorry..) that most of the psilocybin is made at the start of the mushroom's growth, and from there I'd assume it just matures to drop spores. Seems logical because most suggest picking before the veil breaks, because any maturation after that is just for reproduction. Can anyone confirm/deny this? Thanks =)

Whew, ok.. I didn't really pay much attention in biology, but I was sure they were in their own class from what I listened to.. I've been paranoid that I've been losing parts of my mind lately..

yes that's true... aborts are more potent by weight, since most of the psilocybin/psilocin is made during the beggining...
