That's what I meant with waiting 1 day extra. One does never know in advance how a grow is going..
The most important element in all this is one's own intuition. You decided for yourself. And that's good.
Intuitively we all know how to do it. We sometimes think we don't have access to that information.
But it's there, all the time. I learned that in gardening and ,later on, from the mushrooms.
The mushrooms will show you the way, so to speak.
I have sometimes a pin growing towards the bottom, I just harvest it as it is.
When you wanna rescue it just harvest it half way through.
Oh I see, I thought you said to wait for a day and then consider it finished. Didn't understand that you reccomended to wait that day to see if it is indeed the end of the flush.
I like your way of seeing it and it sounds true on some level. However, since I'm very new to this, I can't help but think that there are some decisions that are better than others to promote the healthy growth of our friends.
For instance, I can think of different options concerning the bottom pin:
1) Let it grow and submerge in the water (doesn't sound like a good idea)
2) Flip the cake so it can grow freely (would probably end up with the same problem again and may damage the cake in the process)
3) Put something under the rack so it can grow a bit more without touching the water
4) Harvesting it even if it hasn't fully grown
All these solutions have their pro's and con's and as a newbie I feel like I have more odds to mess things up lol
I think I will harvest it pretty soon because that seems like the easiest option.
Thanks a lot!
