picking.
    #4586227 - 08/27/05 02:54 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

when should i pick the mushrooms?

according to erowid, "The mushrooms should be picked just as the veil underneath the cap is starting to tear away from the stalk"

does that mean when you can see the gills?

pretty much, unless you want to make some spore prints which I recomend, then you allow the cap to flatten out a bit first

And stood awhile in thought.

give them a little twist as you pull them from the cake, the shouldnt leave anything behind that will begin to rot doing that way

You can dry them together as long as you have good airflow
I put mine in a cardboard box under a ceiling fan for 48 hrs and then use desiccant to get them 100% dry

What do you mean this isnt the place. Mushroom Cultivation includes harvesting right? And harvesting is the picking of the shrooms, correct?  :dumblol:
