Is this cap opening?
    #11361866 - 11/01/09 12:38 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I think this mushie is growing all twisted because my setup doesn't have access to enough light.  I can't tell if this is really opening or not.  it's still not very big and when I look at the underside of the cap, I can't really see any gills and it looks flat and solid.  should I pick it now?

Yeah looks like the veil is still attached to it.  It will start to open then the veil will break and you will see the gills.  Most consider the best time to pick being when the veil is about to break or just broke.  Give it more time.

dont pick it yet. wait until the cap opens up at least a little bit. the whole 'pick before the veil breaks' thing is bullshit to me. you wont notice a difference in potency so you might as well let the damn cap open before you pick.
