    #2260876 - 01/21/04 09:17 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

This is my first time growing and the shrooms are getting to a decent size but when shoudl i pick them. How do i know how big they will get or just before the veil splits. Some cakes are doing way better then others what shoudl i do pick all at once or just when some are ready

Pick right when the veil breaks. If there are two mushrooms and one of mushroom's veil breaks before the other one, you can either wait till the other breaks or just twist both off, your choice.

I like to let my caps spread right out and start sporulating....sure it makes a mess but they make some really nice dark prints and look so pretty :laugh:

'Tis a matter of preference, really. I believe that they are at their 'optimal' potency just after the veil starts to tear.

If you want to get some prints and give some love back to the community *wink*, then wait until they flatten out a bit and make some prints! Yeah!

They grow real quick when they start getting big, it can be difficult to get perfect time, but right when the cap starts to  break away from teh side(stretchy thin layer between cap and stem breaks).  Its usually a good time to pick. 

Some strains like koh samui and lipa yai will have late break veils and the cap will get pretty flat.

It doesnt really make too much of a differench but good luck :smile:.
