Harvesting Question!
    #901946 - 09/23/02 04:42 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

A friend of mine recently started trying to grow shrooms and has successfully made it to the terrarium stage. The cakes are in a rubbermaid container and pinheads have already started to form, along with real mushrooms. Our only concern is that the top half of the stems have started turning a darker color than the rest of the stems. What does this mean? Also, the caps are starting to tear away from the stems but a veil is not present and we are not sure if these are ready to be picked or not. We have read a lot about when to pick, but nothing has been able to clarify this. They do not look like they are fully ready because the stems are so thick toward the bottom and the caps are so small. BTW, the strain is Ecuador. Please let us know what is going on and the best thing to do.

Don't worry yourself over the veil. When the mushroom starts to open, you can harvest it without any concerns.

Sounds like everything is fine.  Don't fret over a little color change or absence of a veil.  :grin: 

When I was a kid my favorite relative was Uncle Caveman.
After school we'd all go play in his cave, and every once in
a while he would eat one of us. It wasn't until later that I
found out that Uncle Caveman was a bear.
