harvest times varry according to the personal preferences of the indevidual cultivator, but you should be picking them just as the viel starts to tear, as this is the point when they have about as much mass as they are going to get, and seems to be the point where alkaloid production has past it's peak.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I always thought that for maximum potency in the shroom, its good to pick it right before the veil breaks... i've heard that once the shroom starts sporulating, it keeps gettin bigger, but no more psilocybin is produced...

this is true to some degree, but they seem to decrease in alkaloid production more gradualy than that. they do not really cease production, but it is hampered by the resources going to the production of spores. this is realy just a theory, and i've seen no studies to support it, but there is evidence.

i recomended picking just after the viel begins to tear [amound other reasons] because it is a lot easier to a person not used to cultivating cubensis to tell that the viel is actualky beginning to tear than to tell if it is about to [there is physical evidence, rather than relying on observation of previous fruitbodies].
