shroomer courtesy question???
    #3859739 - 03/02/05 10:50 PM (12 years, 23 days ago)

Ive read in several places and been told a few common courtesies when it comes to picking mushrooms. in particular ive heard that it is good to thump the caps before picking to facilitate the deposit of spores back into the substrate (i.e. manure, grass, mulch etc.). ive also heard that you should flip the manure patty over once you pick the shrooms...this is where my main question comes from. since shrooms tend to grow in older decomposing manure, which at this stage it is become sort of attached to the grass underneath it, i find it is hard to flip the patty without the patty breaking up. so my question is is it just as good or is it bad to smash the patty to try and introduce the spores and "root" of the shrooms back into the manure. any veterans have any advice or tips??? i definitely want to do everything in my power to allow my fields continue to produce.

thanks for any help
happy shrooming

That sounds like two pieces of bad advice to me.

You don't need to thump the caps; spores are forcibly discharged as they are produced and do not collect in the cap.

It's best to disturb the cow pie as little as possible when picking. Don't flip it, and don't smash it.

I always thought that thumping the caps sounded kinda wierd being that they drop spores on their own.I never bothered to do it and have yet to see my fields not produce.
