I was wondering how long after the mushrooms start pinning until they are fully mature and ready for picking? They are of the wild variety growing in some cow manure..Thanks in advance!

Normally mushies are mature enough to be harvested when the veil breaks from the cap. Maybe just a little longer but not much longer.

Hope that helps.

Peace,

I was wondering.. I read a post where someone said its best to pick them right before to right after the veil breaks for maximum potency.. Anyone verify this? :P

Oh I see what you were sayin. To go from a pin to a mature fruit it can take anywhere from a day or two to about 4 or 5 days.

I went out and checked them one day later and the biggest ones (maybe 1 inch long, not fully mature) and all the other lil babies were dead and shriveled up....What could be the cause of there sudden death?

Hmmmm....I'd say that they're probably just aborts, but they're actually "shriveled up?" I'm puzzled as to what could have killed your shrooms. I mean, most of the things you could do to them (low temps, no air exchange) would slow the growth process, but actually killing them all takes something pretty bad. Were they exposed to really high (like over 98 degrees F) temps? Direct sunlight? I can't think of any contams or bacteria or anything that would cause them to actually shrivel......any chance you could post a pic for some of the experts here to peruse? Sorry about your loss, that really sucks!

What has the temp been like? If it has been really hot or has gotten really cold (below freezing) that can cause a lot of damage to the fungus. Thats the only thing I can really think of. Bacteria or competeing fungus I don't think would have been the problem, and if it was going to be a problem i think it would have kept the shroomies from growing a while ago (since the environment is outside and uncontrolled by you). Don't wait too much longer though to crop the larger ones. If the death is temp related like I mentioned, you don't want to miss out on something good.
