Maybe Many Mini Mushrooms
    #2027377 - 10/21/03 01:39 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Howdy peoples.

I've been thinking alot lately about what the literature says on mushroom maturity, and strategy of harvest time. According to the teks and faqs, the mushroom specimens that have the gentlest digestibility, best taste, and most magic are the ones that are very, very young. For dosing, most people seem to even prefer large numbers of small aborts over healthy, larger mushrooms. On top of this, the longer you allow a mushroom to mature, the more precious nutrients are taken from the substrate, lowering the quantity of future mushrooms.

What do you guys think about picking all of a cake's mushrooms off when they're Really, really young? Like, just a slight too big to be called pins kinda young (for taste). If I were to do this, would my final weight in tiny specimens be comparable to the weight I might have ended up with picking fewer, larger ones? Or would I still probably end up only getting like, 3-4 flushes, and have almost nothing?

What do you guys think?

Yeah, I'm thinking about giving it a try, too. It's just that I'm a little nervous about trying out too many "experiments" before I'm in familiar territory. This is my first grow ever and I'd kinda like to see how much of a harvest I can end up with, going strictly by the books, getting the shrooms that are on the verge of sporulating. Unless someone who's tried it before could assure me that it's not going to make that big of a difference in how much weight I end up with, I'll probably wait 'till next time around to see for myself.

Anybody tried it before?

Is it true aborts are more potent than full grown mushrooms?

i read that its not the aborts. i read that the younger they are, the most psilocybin they contain because they slowly lose it as they age (?). seems weird to me. i think it also said that picking them right before the veil breaks helps with potency.

dont go by what i say because im not sure.

I don't think you can "make" an abort. It just happens that way. I don't think picking a "non abort" shroom is a good idea. There is however a proper time to pick the mushrooms no matter what size they are. I believe picking a shroom too young might be similar to picking it when its too old IMO. There is an art to judging a mushrooms age and time to pick.

A friend of mine has always just saved the abhorts for himself and spread the large beautiful ones amongst his friends. In his experience he has tripped harder off of them.
