When's a flush not a flush anymore?
    #4078848 - 04/20/05 10:38 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

How do you tell when a flush is over?  I've been picking fruit off my cakes as they mature, so not all at the same time.  I got a bunch of mushrooms last week that all grew pretty quickly... I picked a lot that matured, and now my cakes seem to be slowing down.  I have a lot of pins still forming, but they're not growing as fast.  In fact they're growing REAL slow...  if the heads weren't still brown I'd be thinking they all abhorted.  Does that mean my flush is up?  Should pick what's on there now and dunk & roll again?  Or is a flush over when the cake doesn't even pin anymore?  Thanks for helping this newbie! :grin:

this is the time when you play taps for the cake, and lay it to rest in a pot of water to make a potent tea.

each batch of shrooms is a flush. once they are all picked, that flush is over and
a second begins, when harvesting, make sure to pick them all, dunk and pop it back
in the terrarium

/agree with prisoner,

After the veils tear on all of the shrooms on my cake, I pick them, clean off the aborts and dunk and roll.  I do this about 2-3 times with each cake.  On the 3rd or 4th fluch I usually only get one big shroom per cake and I know that this cakes has served me well but its time has come.  :crying: :sad: :crymeariver:
