The little fat ones
    #5965458 - 08/15/06 11:07 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I'm working with my first cake and about 6 of the 9 mushrooms on it are very fat and wide.  they don't seem to be growing any taller which brings me to my question, when do i know my fatties are ready to be harvested?.  I'm a little concerned because i don't want to wait too long and then have them rot.  :confused:

if the caps get black and they havent grown at all after about 2-3 days then take them off the cake gently, they are aborts...

if they are little fatties and the cap is opening then they are not abborts . if they are pins and the cap turns black then they are.
harvest when the veil breaks or not to long after.

what strain ksss?

growing fatter without getting taller could mean a few things:

cakes are waterlogged.  you don't have them sitting directly on perlite do you?

another cause, your humidity might be too low.

finally but least likely, you might not be providing enough light.  chances are you are unless you're growing them in total darkness. :smile:

if the caps aren't turning dark on you they may not have aborted yet, and correcting the problem might result in them picking up growth again.  you'll end up with some mangled looking wierd ass stems... but they can sometimes be saved and coaxed into growing up a little

in that case then there all okay.  My only source of light is a small window in the furnace room, humidity is not a problem.  That was close because i was about to remove them! Thanx!!!  :laugh:

only if the caps are very very dark/black then remove
you can tell they are aborts if they arent changing in size at all for a few days and the cap is black

some of the caps broke but i think they are still growing.  the cake holds nine mushrooms to my knowledge 4 are normal, 5 are fatties all of the normal ones are growing at the base and even under the cake. I keep the humidity at around ninety if i can help it, i even got that little piece of aluminum foil to retain moister.  Oh and the strain I'm growing is mexi-cube, I'm not really into digging up specific info on various strains when they are all grown basically the same way. :tongue:
