My FOAF has been getting regular flushes from the same batch that she started 6 months ago and they just keep coming and coming. Regular PF tek +hippie invitro. We're talking 10 flushes? Can that be right? 10? anyway, it's a lot.


proly not counting actual flushes,
cakes do not 'flush' like casings
but rather pop out shrooms more or less constantly
once fruiting begins

my trays grow a constant flow of mushrooms. whats the deal? from everything ive read ther supposed to come in flushes, theses usal 40-50 little pins on ever tray, and they all grow in different stages of developement. i have to pick them every day, its a chore, but very well worth it! oh, my trays are cased rye grain in trays, three 2/3 full quart jars cased with verm(ive had bad results w/ peat based casings). what do you guys do with all your mushrooms, i couldnt eat this in a life time!!

Kingstrrophariad, I would bet most peeps dry them for a rainy day. Some of us get to a tipping point on having too many and end up using them for experimentation on extracting the goodies in to ethanol or other solvents. You can take a couple ounces and after a little work and time have a little bottle of trippy alchohol that is super stealthy and will last for years. I also like to dry mine, put into a vacuum bag, and give as gifts to a few special friends. Since properly dried mushrooms will last for years, the paranoid among us may use a bountiful harvest as an opportunity to have a nice stash without having a grow going for quite some time. It limits the chance of getting caught with something that the state would frown on.

I have to shake my head at the ocasional newb who comes here and doesn't want to read the archives but wants to know the fastest and highest yield methods and best strains so they can have pounds of mushrooms within weeks. The fastest way to get into trouble with this, or herb, is to start producing large amounts for sale. Just my tuppence.

plenty of micro-growers around
doing just enough for personal
one can get a false impression
from looking at pictures

It depends, on cakes I have got as many as 5 flushes, but I only get 3 with straw projects if all goes well.

I voted four on average. I always get at least 3 sometimes as many as 5 but lately I have been shooting for 3 to 4 and after that they get stuck outside unless it is cold.

I also did an average like you asked. I get 5 on average between different substrates etc. Some give me more than others. But 5 is my average. imo, its all on how you take care of it.
