A harvest potency question....
    #1321163 - 02/20/03 06:53 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Ok all.. i've seen many posts in the past about "when to harvest to get the best potency"... i understand people say before the veil breaks.. and some say let the mature.. what i want to know is... even if they hit highest potency before the veil breaks, that doesnt mean they will be LESS potent if you let them mature... right? It just means they will be at peak potency before they mature... furthermore.. seems like you would just let them get as big as they are gonna get because that would be more weight? Any light on this subject? Thanks.

Technically , once a mushie begins to release its spores it begins to break down and decompose . So yes once that degredation begins the potency could be affected . But the time frame in which most harvest is well within the still potent range , so to say .
For best potency it is reccomended that you pick just before veil tears .
For printing purposes , let mushies mature or till caps begin to open up . Even though you wait on those they are still potent .
But yes your thinking is correct , they are at their "peak" prior to veil tearing .

yes
it is also possible to get a print form musies picked just before the vail breaks .
this should be done in a glovebox, remove the vail with scalpel and print as usual .

Thanks.. and while we are on the subject.. after you take a print.. do you have to throw the cap out?  Because, i've read it takes 24 hours to get a print.. and wouldn't a cap sittin for 24 hours without being dried rot?  Thanks in advance. :grin:

if it rots, you got a bad print on your hands!!!

the cap will drop spores within 12 hours or so, and the cap is fine to dry and eat!!! yum yum..
