hollow stems/weight
    #4424209 - 07/19/05 05:41 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I harvested my mushies a few days ago. They looked just like other shrooms i've done and seen. When i picked them, i weighted them.  the large fruits were about 3-5inches tall with caps larger then quaters(25cents).  They weighed only 2-3grams each fruit wet.

The casings had slight overlay because i was having difficulty getting them too fruit(its so hot outside it makes my room, that much warmer :frown:

now they are dry and i weighed it out. total wet was about 220grams.  dry is about 12grams. the stems are hollow also. 

Is the potency going to be affected?
and are hollow stems normal?

I searched the site and couldnt find to much on the subject.

thanks for your help.

I think it's pretty normal for most strains. With the exeption of a few. I think the bigger they get the more pronounced the hollowness gets. IME, this doesn't effect potency, just weight. It just looks like there's going to be alot more when there wet. :grin:
