Fourth flush of magic mushrooms harvest

STEP 17. Day 54-64. Fourth flush of magic mushroom fruiting period and harvesting results

Fourth flush of fruiting in photos

After 2-3 flushes mushroom cake usually produces less mushrooms, but fruit bodies itself can be bigger.

The 4th flush of P. Cubensis Brazil was harvested in 7-8 days after rehydration (54-55 days after grain inoculation).

The 4th flush of P.Cubensis Thai and Golden Teacher were harvested in 12-13 days after rehydration (63-64 days after grain inoculation).

Here you can see mushrooms with long stems, small caps and fuzzy feet due to lack of fresh air exchange. This flush is an example of poor fruiting conditions. Growbox was left for a week without additional FAE and any attention!

How to initiate 5th flush of mushroom fruiting

Repeat rehydration process for mushroom cakes after harvesting. The rehydration process the same as we made before (soaking in water for 8-24 hours).

After 2-3 rehydrations, soaking for 4-8 hours is enough. Sometimes you can skip rehydration if mushroom cake/block is wet enough
