brown gills vs. purple gills?
    #11188137 - 10/05/09 06:30 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

this is my first grow and i picked some off a cake today for drying and noticed that the ones that had broken their veil had purpleish gills,is this because i waited to long after the veil broke and the gills turned that color, because later today i also picked some of that had just popped their veil and the gills were more of a light brown color?

Yep, purple is from dropped spores.

The other should be more in the realm of grey to tan in my experience, not quite brown.

Spores are purple. They make more spores when they get older.

hey thanks guys lota help, so basically you want to pick them when they have just broken their veil and the gills you see are a tanish brown color as you explained, but if you want to make spore prints you have to wait untill the gills turn purple, now when the gills turn purple and you pick them that late are they still as good and as potent as the ones with newly broken veils?

Pick them when they have just broken their veil for eating.

If you want to make spore prints the veil will break. They will start to become flatter. When they are nearly flat i cut off the cap and put them on foil.

The stem of the mushroom is still in prime condition. Their might be a little potency loss in the cap after it has made spores.

Honestly its hard to tell how much magic is lost. But if you only make lets say 5 prints and only 5 caps are kind of affected will you really tell the difference? Its not like they'll be bunk or anything.
