Harvesting your mushrooms
To harvest your mushrooms, simply grab the whole cluster, rock it back and forth, twist, and pull. Since the mushrooms form on top of the substrate and not from within, there wont be much of a root that comes out with the base of the mushroom. Some varieties such as pink oysters might need a bit of a tug in order to harvest. If you need to use a knife that is ok as well, just remove the leftover mushroom material before starting your next growth!
