best method to harvest??
    #506863 - 01/01/02 07:39 PM (16 years, 11 months ago)

What is the best way to know when to pick a shroom? As soon as u can see the veil completely dettached from the cap? And also, do u just gently twist and pull it out w. tweezers? Once this is done do u patch the hole w. sterlized potting soil or what is the best thing to do? Thanks!!!

You can just grab them with your fingers, give a twist and a pull. Anytime you can see the viel is almost ready to tear is fine. If it does tear, if you missed that 'magic moment' by a couple hours, it won't make any difference.

Of course, if you are hoping to take a print, then thats another story.

If you're going for a second flush, recase the whole cake.

Slap some more damp verm around it, raise the temp a bit so the mycellium colonizes the new casing, then drop temp and give lots of fresh air to induce pinning. If your cake did not become contaminated after the first flush, you should get a second although they are not usually as big with most strains.
