Eric, it is partially the angles, and partially the coloration that you are seeing.Looks like the tips of the hammer are bigger than the mushrooms little piece.
Thanks EricEric, it is partially the angles, and partially the coloration that you are seeing.
The slivers I am cutting are not huge, as this was an experiment I have heard about.
The 3 shrooms(1 pink stripper lips, and 2 sunkist bounce) are about the size of eraser heads at this point.
But with anything, can grow overtime.
In essence, this is just like the mother mushroom, leaving a piece of her foot via pedal laceration propagation.
My goal was NOT to have two equal halves, but rather a expedited baby from the mother.
I have had several high end mushrooms get larger and larger with no babies. If I were to have tried this a couple years ago, maybe I have 10-15 babies by now, which would have all grown.
You may ask, why not just chop in half. I have, and with the jawbreakers. Lost both sides. It is hit or miss and with several hundred dollars at risk, not a gamble I want to take.
