First grow/casing
    #4736005 - 09/30/05 12:14 PM (12 years, 21 days ago)

Hey guys/girls!
Just did my first grow of Tasmanian cubs. WHen the veil has moved away from the gills and i can see a ring around the stalk should i harvest? Even though some of the shrooms are small they look "done". Thanks

If you can harvest the ones that broke their veil and leave the smaller ones grow good, if the big ones are attached in clusters to smaller ones just take the whole cluster. Remember to patch up the holes you leave from picking and mist it with water/peroxide solution.

Im not at that stage of fruiting or anything, but I noticed you said patch up the holes you leave from picking. Whats that, that you are using to patch up the pickings?

You did say you were casing, so you would patch with whatever you cased with.

If you're using cakes, then you shouldn't need to patch anything. Just remember to use a twisting motion when you pull them so you get the mycelium at the base and you don't leave a mushroom stump behind. That can rot and contam your whole cake (or tub if you leave it for too long!)

I guess you weren't :smirk:

For cakes my recommendation to you would be to dunk and roll them once they are 100% colonized before putting them in the fruiting chamber. :thumbup:

I agree on dunk and rolling but im probably going to do that after first flush (first grow dont wanna mess up, although I know its pretty easy). Also about rolling in vermiculite, you roll the WHOLE cake in verm. or just top and bottoms of cakes? Because in a video I have shows the cake being taken out of jar placing it on lid in FC then placing a layer of verm. on top an then placing the jar back over the cake, flipping it and placing back on lid to put on other side. Recommendations. Also if thats right, If I did that right when the jar is fully colonized would I remove verm. before I would even dunk/roll? Thanks again.

Yeah, remove the dry verm from the top of the jar. People do their dunk and roll different ways. I do mine by leaving the cakes in water overnight, then rolling them in dry verm to absorb the excess water, then throw them in the FC. Some people apply verm that is already wet or mist the cake after they apply the verm. You could even dunk without using verm at all.

The top and bottom verm tek you were talking about was the "double ended casing". This serves the same purpose of hydrating the cake via the vermiculite, which retains water very well.
