no. pick just before the veil breaks. or just after (depends on if your going to make a print or no) if the veil breaks you will just get spores all over your FC. deff. pick the big one in the pic. i always pick just as the veil breaks

I've always read that you should avoid getting spores all over the FC.  What I don't understand is the reason why...  Can it cause some sort of contam problem?

can cause contams, spores taste like shit if they get on other mushies, if you have any nutrients anywhere some can actually start to grow myc. and it just makes a mess of everything. honestly it doesn't cause a HUGE problem, but in this hobby you want everything to be protocol. so its a good habit to get into picking right before the veil breaks. also some people (including myself) feel that the potency of the mushie stops the second the veil breaks, so if you pick after the tear then the mushies still may be gaining water weight (and water is valuable in your cakes) without gaining any extra psilocybin.

Too late unless you are making prints, in which case it's just right:

So Im confused... I know when its too late from all the pics... but still not when to pick exactly ... before or after the veil breaks...? Can I pick some and then leave some to take prints from?  Can someone give me a link of how to refill a syringe. Thanks... sorry to hijack this thread.

and hasnt everyone pretty much come to the conclusion that mushrooms taste like shit? hell even edibles taste bad IMO... why does it matter if spores get on them? or are they actually THAT bad? I feel like it would be worth the extra growth... or is this partially because they lose active chemicals as they get older?

But Im on my first grow, and you are all on your 10000th.

Pick some leave some, pick when you want, pick when you can, just so long as you pick.
