I found this on Erowid:

"The KvW report states that no correlation was found between the potency of a mushroom and the flushing pattern. This differs from the old Beug & Bigwood findings. This finding doesn't suprise me, however, because many others have found that the potency of a mushroom seems to be more dependent on the size (small mushrooms are generally more potent), moment of picking (the younger the better), substrate (grains produce more potent mushrooms than compost) and temperature (mushrooms are more potent at lower temperatures)."

I think the whole size vs potency thing is fiction. I have nothing to back up this hypothesis other than my own non-scientific observations. What I have noticed is that the fruit from later flushes seems more potent than fruit from younger flushes. I have also noticed that fruit that has dropped spores seems to be weaker than fruit picked before it drops spores. I have never noticed a difference in strength versus size. Again, these are personal observations without any kind of double blind controls to validate them.

I just posted a Dutch mushroom potency research, including different flushes. http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...;o=&fpart=1
