potency during growth
    #1497296 - 04/27/03 04:23 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

hey everybody. my friend had a question he wanted me to Ask. he knows that the optimal time to harvest mushrooms would be right Around the time the veil breaks. However, say one did not harvest the mushrooms right away? does potency decrease significantly? These mushrooms were growing along the bottom of the casing and he was given advice to flip the tray upside down and harvest the mushrooms on the bottom, but they had already been allowed to grow for Awhile after reaching maturity. thank you for any replies

They're fine. They potency/veil thing is just another myth that needs to go away.

many things can be said about potency and mushrooms but only a few of them are true. It is all up to speculation and your own personal expirence. While some shrooms on the 1st flush of a cake arent that good. . . the second flush may be much better. Also some say that mushrooms picked right before the veil breaks are more potent then those after. Also it is theorized that the mushroom meets its peak Psilocybin and Psilocin content right before the veil breaks and starts to break down the chemical shortly after.

Now is the time for one of the mods to jump in here and prove me wrong and teach me something new.  :smile: :laugh: :grin:

If you can distinguish any difference, you should plan a career as a professional bioassayist and rent out your services to people doing studies, or professional growers. There should be no noticeable difference due solely to the timing you described.

alright thanks a lot guys. i was never really sure how much the potency may differ by. it was only like 3 or 4 days later than it should have been so i guess now i know they'll be fine
