small pins - will they grow?
    #410861 - 10/02/01 03:37 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Hey you shroomers, maybe you can help me! This is my first time growing any shrooms, syringes are from PF. I have successfully grown the cakes and have my first flush picked and drying, after 6 days. I now have 3 cakes, each with between 50-75 "pinheads" on them. These pinheads are about 1/4" long, and most of them have small brownish red caps. Are these going to grow larger, and is there anything I can do to encourage the growth?

Also, if I pick the smaller ones, can they be eaten like the larger shrooms? Are they more potent? Any advice will be appreciated!

Thanks!

wait, all will be good.
patience is the key, yes the key is in waiting, higher temps will be good, lows 80s will make the beasts grow quicker and larger.

not tested myself, but common perception is abhorts are more potent by weight, so 3 gs of abhorts, fuck ups if you will will be more potent than 3 gs of normal shrooms.

Pins all over your carpet!?!?!?
You should borrow a friends pet rat and let it loose in the room! You to can do lsd based experiments on animals!
LOL! That would be crazy!!!!! *LOL!*

If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

I am experiencing the same thing. I cut my first shroom yesterday. 5" long PF. But it does seem as if the others are either stunted of aborting. I know the best time to pick them is before the veil breaks, so my questions are?:
Will aborts veil break? (sometimes / all the time / never?)
Will most of the shrooms grow to the same size, or will they all be different sizes from the same cake?
How long should I wait after the veil breaks to get a spore print from the cap?

Thank you in advance for all your help!

I don't know much, but I have my first cakes for 3 varieties going right now, some pinning, some growing, some waiting. The aborts are just that - aborted. They don't grow up like a regular shroom, they start and then stop. There is no veil, it never makes it that far. So far, mine have been little pointy things, and you will peg them quickly. They tease you into believing you are the mushroom goddess and then they quit growing and laugh at you.
My cakes have produced shrooms of various sizes from the same cake...all of them. While they have not grown to the same height, width, etc....it does seem that they all mature together. Some may be 2-3" tall, others 4-5" tall, but the veils (so far...remember, I'm a newbie, too) seem to all begin breaking at the same time, regardless of size.
The prints I have done so far were done as soon as I noticed the veil breaking, and they have been nice, dark prints. I think the longer you leave it, the more spores drop in your terrarium, and (I assume) the less you will get on your print.
Hope this helps.
