BTTR Mushrooms Begin!- 05.19.11
It’s begun! My Mushroom Kit is growing! Last night there was nothing (visible to the naked eye) ~ this morning? Shroom cluster popped out… somewhere between fascinated and having a hard time imagining these as food… had to get up close with it and share the beginnings with you… there’s even a second lower cluster starting too… take a peek at day one of mushroom madness on the next page.
p.s. and if you need a reminder of how this coffee ground brick in a cardboard box began…
Ok here’s the cell phone pic of DAY 1 when i first woke up:
Here are the DAY 1 proper pics i took a few hours later…
Ok that was Mid Morning of DAY 1 -
This is a cell phone pic from that night:
Morning of DAY 5 - HARVEST TIME! And omg spores are messy? The instructions lacked detail on knowing when to harvest… and warning about this powdery mess of spores that will be dispersed EVERYWHERE… so consider yourself warned, newbie shroom growers!
See? this terrible powder everywhere? across the WHOLE counter that i woke up to? Ugh. According to this link - you want the spores in there for nutrition… and they can cause hay fever!
Post harvesting ~ will these keep growing?
