    #393086 - 09/13/01 07:08 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

how do you ident abhorts? i only ask cause i've had a massive first flush and have not noticed any abhorts, that is if there are any i havn't noticed em- or maybe there just arent any. (its B+ by the way). i figure they just start turning dark after they stop growing...

Yep, the caps turn black or blue. The mushroom stops growing and withers.

aborts come in many shapes and even sizes. most are smaller than the others. some are simply deformed. some are born with sharper points than those that will mature. some have very light colored caps or even no caps at all.

once aborts reach the limit of their maturity, they should be removed from the substrate, because they send some kind of chemical mesage to the rest that stunts their growth.

many people remove aborts as soon as it is clear that they are aborts in order to prevent the above. my neighbor's cat does too. some people believe that removal of aborts will allow other pinheads that would otherwise abort, to become adults.
