Tearing the Veil--or Size?
    #2271945 - 01/25/04 04:42 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Hello all, I haven't started growing yet, just getting ALL my ducks in a row. Gotta be fully prepared before I jump in with both feet!

This is actually a harvesting Q. I've seen it stated many places (both here and otherwise) that the best time to harvest (for max potency) is when the cap is just starting to tear away from the veil. And yet, time and time again, I see pics of these gigantic shrooms, with obvious distance between veil placement and cap. Usually people are getting kudos for having such massive shroomies.

So...which truly is better? I suppose bigger is better for those concerned with weight ($$$). But overall? Thanks in advance!

When the veil breaks its at highest potency, when the cap is fully extended its best for taking pictures and showing off on the internet.

Aha, I see. I wondered if it was something like that. I don't plan to show off, or print anytime soon, so it's eyeballing the veil for me! Thanks guys, maybe someday I'll be able to repay the favor.

Are your shrooms really bigger when the cap opens though???

Whats the weight of your fist closed , and then open?
its the same.

If you want to make prints, let it expand, if you want to pick it as the veil breaks or just beofr cause it looks cool , do that.

I don't have any shrooms yet, waiting for those good ol' income taxes for supplies & such (Ralphster, here I come!) But regardless...I was under the impression that they will still grow even after the cap has opened. Not true?

I've heard they grow really quickly, and getting them right before the veil breaks can be hard anyway. I work a ton of hours, and get this sneaking suspicion I wouldn't be here. I guess they'll taste the same at any size (yuck). Thanks guys!

Not true!  Mucky, spore-covered shrooms taste noticeably worse IMO.  But they're all good in their own special way, if ya know what I mean.  :wink:
