Best time to pick shrooms?
    #1358146 - 03/08/03 12:54 PM (11 years, 1 month ago)

i am getting to that point with my Amazons.. I just wanted to ask you pros 2 questions..

One is When is the best time to pick the shroom. I have one that i think is done but the rest are not. Can i just wait for the majority to get mature or should i pick them as they mature?

Two is: when getting prints i see that the spores are always blackish. Now i have looked under my shrooms are they are white.. Does this mean that when they are black under the cap the shroom is mature?


thanks for you time.......

ROB

There's a lot of specualtion about when the best time to pick a mushroom is. A lot of people tend to agree that picking the shroom right before the veil breaks is the best time to assure maximum potency.

I'd like the opinions of others as well. It seems that picking the larger fruits before the veil breaks gives the little guys more time to grow. However, there gets to be so many pins at times its hard to keep track of them all, and when you get that many its best to harvest when all the caps are open, IMO.

Hate to tell you guys but there is absolutely no evidence that the veil has any relevance to the potency of any psilocybes.
