Best time to harvest?
« on: June 07, 2009, 09:51:09 AM »

I've heard and read conflicting ideas on when the best time to harvest. For instance, I've heard that the shrooms stop producing psilocybin once the veil begins to break and puts its energy into sporilation. I've also seen plenty of pics with tubs full of open cap shrooms. It seems kind of silly to keep watering the shrooms beyond the point of their producing psychedelic material. After all, as soon as I pick them I put them in the dehydrator.
  What would Jesus do? :wub:

Never mind. Went to Mycotopia and found a long post devoted to the subject. Basically a matter of taste. Best to pick em before they drop spores to keep everything nice and tidy.

For me it depends when im home cuz from the time the veil is about to break to the time where it opens up completely can happen over a fairly short time span. Either way is fine, if you want a tiny bit more weight let them open up completely. But it doesnt add MUCH.

I think there is also alot of people who want to brag about the size of what they harvest.

Yes. This is particularly true when growing PE.
