when to harvest
    #1498293 - 04/27/03 06:12 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Ive heard some people say harvest before the veil breaks, others say wait till after. Does it matter if you pick the mushrooms all at once, or one at a time as they mature?

>pick the mushrooms all at once

Its a good idea to pick all mushrooms during a 24 hour period to promote the next flush.

yeah pick em all at once, but in my opinion you should let most of the veils break and spore print, spore print, spore print!!! the potency doesn't change that much, and you get way bigger shrooms. as a newbie, my foaf used to pick when a couple of them had broken veils. now he picks em when almost all veils are broken. IMO you are just missin out on dry grams if you pick em when 1 veil just barely starts to break, then they are all small and shrivel up to nothingness when dried.

he dunks his casings after a flush in a diluted h2o2 solution to keep out contams while still rehydrating. not really a dunk, just lets em float in it for about 6 hours(6 units water to 1 unit h2o2(3%)) then mists the top with plain spring water. takes a couple days to recover and then look out. a fully hydrated contam free casing flushin out some big guys. works great.
