Dude, how'd they get so big?
    #4666929 - 09/15/05 09:41 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Alright, here's my first flush



Now my 2nd flush is what's getting me.  See those two big ass mushrooms?  That's all I've got for the 2nd flush but they are huge compared to the 1st flush.  I'm not complaining but why???? :smile:

Not bad.....but the reason that happens is this:

1st flush, you will get a lot of mushrooms of average size.

Every following flush, you will get less and less mushrooms, but much bigger size compared to the first flush. This will continue to happen until your cake/casing is exhausted.

Another cause of it are the big mushrooms themselves. If you have one or two mushrooms that are a lot bigger, or are growing much faster than others, pick them early off.

Mushrooms that are growing much bigger and faster than the others (as your pic looks) could affect yield as well. They suck up a lot of nutes stopping other mushies from growing. You may also notice other mushies growing slower when you have a few really big mushrooms.


hope that helps.

GL TO YA.

Anything beyond first flush, and you'll see more energy concentrated into fewer mushrooms than the first flush. While you get less mushrooms count wise, it seems to make up for things with individual weight. That's why you see the real monsters in later successive flushes.

I don't get it.. Can't you just break upt the myc and add new nutrients to the casing instead of starting all over again?

Both of your questions could be answered by doing a little reading and research.

To give you a simple answer to both of those questions.  It is that way, because that is the way it works. :craven:

well, both, but you can't just add nutes to a casing....you can use a spent one to spawn to something else like horse shit, but you can't just add nutes to it....doesn't work that way because of the different stages of growing.

Once your casing is in the fruiting stage, vegitative growth stops. If that the case heheh everyone would have to have one casing for life.....just inject some nutes to it and yer set, that would be awesome, but it doesn't work that way.

Thanks for the info, this is my first 2nd flush :smile: ... I have a bunch of other casings and a couple bulk casings so I think i'm going to see how big I can get these :smile: ... they are 2x the size they were in this pic.  I'll post the final product.

yeah, those two should be some pretty big mushies from the looks of your previous pic. The first flush is not bad at all either. Congrats on both.

My largest to date was also off an outside grow. Cracked cap from low humidity, not very tall, but solid as a rock,



This thing was solid as a rock. Little over 12 grams dry. Feels like a damn Railroad spike,lol.

I've noticed all my outside babies are much shorter but more solid then their inside brethren.

I've also noticed they don't lose as much weight when drying. That one was only 102 grams wet. Should have been about 10 grams dry.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

Yep, it was my first grow :smile: ... only one of those was an outside grow ... it is quite a bit harder than the other two.

Can't complain about those bob!  The following flushes always make up for the lack of mushroom yield in weight of the existing mushies.  Very nice for your first grow. :headbanger:  Have a 5.
