Has anyone tried harvesting VERY early?

Okay, aborts are more potent (more psychoactives/mass of tissue). So, why wouldn't picking pins also produce a mass of fungal tissue higher in psychoactives per mass measure?

Hypothetically, wouldn't this also conserve nutrients in the substrate from being used by the colony, as the "good stuff" is already present in the pins in large amounts and the energy required to "grow up" your pins isn't metabolized?

I mean, growing them up is fun, but I'm wondering if picking early wouldn't actually yield a more potent crop. By early, I mean well (12 hours after pinning, for example) before the veil breaks.

Also, would it be possible for one to create aborts by removing the caps of pins before they are harvested?

No no no. Aborts aren't the same thing as immature fruit. I HIGHLY doubt this will yeild a more potent crop.

i've tried a bunch of small mushrooms and they were pretty damn good. i'm talkin like these



They were dry, and i mixed them iwth 14g Fresh (regular sized) mushrooms and DAMN.

the problem with these is that they dont produce enough pins to replace full grown mushrooms. But if you do have a casing or something that you need to clean, dont throw the little guy's out. I love it when 2-3 of us are going thru and picking what we all want, and everyone leaves me the little baby one's. Even though i tell them they are way crazy, they still insist on having the big, overgrown one's. like i said, they are not good enough to harvest them only, but if you are in the situation where they dont grow (and dont abhort like the one's in the pics) then you should harvest and try for yourself.

Not necessarily.  They are about as potent as any "normal" cube.  The difference is that they are packed with alkaloids in such a smaller area.

If you want rotten mushrooms  :wink:
