some say that picking right after the veil breaks is the best time since after that they will get a lil bigger but not produce any more psilocybin...I'm not really sure if theres any truth to that but I always pick mine right when the veil starts tearing....unless I'm using it for a spore print....then I let it mature more

ive never read any scientific evidence that proved this = and i came to the conclusion it was typically incorrect. Im not sure how a veil can affect alkaloid production in anyway. :smile:

It all depends on two things ...
1 Are you jonseing to eat them :blush:
2 Do you want prints for future use , or trading  :cool:
If 1 is your answer ... PIck them now  :smirk:
If 2 is your answer ... wait a few more hours until the caps start to open up , then select the best ones and make prints . :smile: :cool:
Good Luck

why pick them now? Since different cubensis strains lose their veil at different times, can you please explain to me how logically the breaking of a small membrane has any relevance to alkaliod production? I say pick them when they are mature - i agree with stamets on that.

I said nothing about potency .
But why pick now if not interested in print making ?
1 huge reason and Stametes says this himself ...
Spores that land on the substrate can and will inhibit future growth of next flushes .
IMO alkaloid production stops when the mush is prepairing to dump spores , they begin to use their energy sources to produce and release spores instead of producing chemicals used to protect fruits from being eaten by predators , just a theory , but a valid one IMO .

mmm...maybe - and your spore point was something i overlooked. Each to there own - i just like the way they look at full maturity. Thats when you notice the differences between strains, so maybe my opinion is biased.

I agree with you there ... a fully mature , fully opend cap is a beautiful sight to see , but one must weigh the consequences of each choice for their own needs .

Found it ..........
Page 155 , under topic titled "HARVESTING" in the last couple of lines of the second paragraph .....
"One particular problem is the massive release of spores from the mature mushrooms. These spores often times cover the casing layer and can inhibit further pinhead development ." High spore loads can also cause allergic reactions to growers . For these reasons , one should pick mushrooms at the stage when the veil starts to tear open , or soon after .
So like I said ,,, "Unless wanting prints , you should pick sooner than later .
