Need advice on when to harvest the bulk of my first flush
    #24540650 - 08/09/17 05:36 AM (3 years, 8 months ago)

I have some gulf coast and I'm noticing that there are 3 predominant shrooms popping up first, yet i have many other smaller ones. When should i harvest? Should i just harvest them all when these 3 are breaking their veil? Or should i just let them mature and the others grow more before i harvest them all? What potency loss will happen if i let the others catch up to the bigger 3? Negligible? Or would it be wise to not waste potency on the big three and just harvest even the small ones?

Many thanks for anyone who chimes in with the help i need.

I do plan on making spore prints.

I don't want to pull individual shrooms if it wrecks the entire cluster of smaller ones when i don't need to.

Since you want to make spore prints you're gonna wanna get the bigger mushrooms when their veils break, but you can just cut them off with a knife so you don't damage the rest of the cluster. Then let the rest mature for a few more days.

Even though smaller mushrooms are (commonly agreed to be) more potent, I've yet to see any studies actually comparing the potency of pins vs when they are mature. If you find one let me know!

If I were you I would pick the mushrooms individually, when each one is mature (as opposed to picking all at once).

Thanks fella. I'll do that.

i just didn't want to disturb the smaller cluster by yanking out shrooms.
