picking shrooms late?
    #1339994 - 02/27/03 10:10 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I got some nice ecuadors growing using the pf-tek. The caps have folded open like an umbrella. I also want to wait a couple more days before i pick so I can eat them on the weekend. My question is ..."will mature shrooms lose potency if I let them sit on the cake.. should i pick them right away after they mature or is it okay to leave them alone and let them sit for a couple more days?"

you can leave them. there are few disadvantages to this tho. 1) the mush continues to consume nutrients that would otherwise be used for new mush. 2) spores drop all over the place, it would be better to print those spores. 3) it is commonly believed that once the veil breaks psilocybin production slows greatly so the amount of psilo in the fruit is roughly the same but your adding bulk by letting it grow so in effect, you eat more mush to get the same amount of psilo. my recomendations: print those caps and store the fruit in a loose paper bag in the fridge, they will keep rather well for a few days like that.

Its sad how the police arrest people for having shrooms then the cops at the end the day get drunk off alcohol celbrating what a great job they done.
