Harvest Time.... OMG WHAT DO I DO!
    #4371563 - 07/05/05 10:08 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Well the pins I posted last night are no longer pins. They are very much mushrooms. Well, some of them anyway. I have heard that the best (most potent time) to harvest is right before the veil breaks. I have heard conflicting arguments. But the point is, due to this being my very first grow.... my pin set was horrid. A couple of the mushrooms that came up first matured over night. I dont want to harvest these specific ones yet. There is one nice pin still growing from at the base of the stem of one of the ones I want to pick. plus I would like to go in there maybe 1 or 2 times instead of 4 or 5. My question? How much bigger will a mushroom get after the veil breaks. Even the fully mature ones are pretty small. They'll be tiny when I dry them.

The mature ones won't get much bigger, but just wait maybe another 24 hours for that pin to catch up some. Once it's almost ready to pick, pick everything at once if you can.

They won't get much bigger but the cap will open and flatten out over the next 12-24 hrs, depending on how far it is already open. it may not even take that long and there is the possibility that it will drop its spores if you wait too long.

good luck
peace

If the veil breaks they will drop spores all over your casing. In uneven pinsets I have heard of cutting off the unbroken caps, leaving the stem to grow and leaving the smaller shrooms to mature, so you can harvest from the casing when they are all pretty big.

Why is it bad if spores get dropped. Wouldn't that just help? I guess not huh.

well it is not a bad thing to have the spores drop, just not all over your casing. don't know if it will create problems or not. i have had a few drop spores on the casing and haven't had any probs with them as of yet. it just makes everything look messy.
good luck
peace

just cut the caps off the ones that are done so the others can catch up, if you pick the ones that are done it tends to fuck with the mycel network which in turn can cause the others to abort!!!!the stems will last several days without caps!!!!

that of corse if you dont want the caps to drop spores all over your casing, i do this if i get an uneven pinset. because i dont like my caps to open unless i want to take prints ,but it is what you want,and yes they will last days with the caps open but it will inhibit your future flushes!!!!!

Did you keep patching the casing until the myc was coming through it evenly? This will help the pinset big time :thumbup:

If they've broken their veils then just pick em all.

The the small ones attached to the stems of the big ones are just aborts and won't get bigger.
