Ready to crop?
    #886945 - 09/17/02 01:00 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

This is my first time growing and I need to know whether these are a suitable size to crop.

They are the first flush from my grow kit. (A similar one can be seen here.)

They stand between 1 and 1/2 inches and 3 inches high, one or two have broken veils but the head are still small compared to the bodies. And its two weeks since the kit went into the terranium (not pictured).

So, should I pull them off now so the following flushes have a chance to grow, or do they need another week?

Thanks,
Jon

Also, is this a lot of mushrooms for a first flush?

harvest time comes when veils are broken
try to take your shroom as soon as the veils breaks so that there are no spores on your casing

I'm unsure of the strain, I got the kit third hand but its been in the fridge is has had no contamination.

I just looked and on closer inspection none of the veils have actually broken. There is one the middle where the edges of the cap have turned up like a dearstalker hat!

Why is it bad if the spores drop onto the casing?

Whats the fruiting temperature at??
Head for mid 70's F, if its colder, the fruit will mature slower.

Good luck
