Is this ready to harvest?
    #1411718 - 03/26/03 03:33 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Is this ready to be harvested? I read a good time is when the viel breaks, but it seems like the mushroom can grow more. What should I do? Thanks. Sorry for the silly question.

hmmmm.....

in my opinion, you should allow the cap to open a bit more, clip the cap off, make a spore print, and mail it to me :grin:

looks good man, what strain?

(oh yea, harvest away if you're hungry for trippin')

I'm not sure. It's either Golden Teacher, or one of the Thai strains. Thanks

It has been written in various FAQ's that the potency of the main psycoactive chemicals reach a peak soon after the veil breaks and then degrades and by the time the spores are dropping, it's almost gone. The extra size will probably not make them more potent, but less, therefore if the chemicals contained inside are what is desired, pick them young if you want the most bang.

So when the spores drop the potency is almost gone?

According to the FAQ, IT DOES NOT MATTER!!! Why does everyone tell tall tales about potency degrading?

potency changes with volume of mushroom and alot of people get confused about that and the actual potency of the whole mushroom.

The size seems to grow faster than the potency.. so max potency/volume would be a pin, while max potency that the mushroom will achieve will be somewere around sporulation. Once it sporulates, the mushroom's job is done and no longer needs to worry about growing or warding off animals with potency. It will just whither away.
