Dying shrooms? Pick before they die?
    #4489563 - 08/03/05 01:56 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I've got 5 cakes and there are shrooms sprouting all over... some are already huge and i would say opened. Theres a small few that seem like they've just died and they're small in size. What should I do, pick um off... what about the big open ones I have, pick those off (before they die?)? Or should I wait till the whole thing is covered?

ok....some will start to grow then quit and the cap turns black (aborts). when they stop growing, pick em and save them, they're still edible and good. the others grow until that membrane from the stem to the cap drops from the cap. then pick those. make sure to pick them at this point or they will drop spores and make a huge mess.

Some of them tore slightly... but the caps seem seem a bit small. Maybe a few more days?

when the membrane fall all the way off. if you wanna let them go a bit longer you can wait for the cap to flatten, then would be optimum. then the cap's side flare up and you've let it go to far. picking when the membrane drops is good b/c they won't get any bigger at that point.

usually, if it tears then pick when the cap flattens. take a pic.

I've been reading Paul Stamets' Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World, and he's convinced that less mature mushrooms are more potent by weight, in which case trying to get that last gram of growth probably won't yield anymore oompf, tripwise.
