Will the mushroom grow bigger after the veil breaks?

Really what I mean is, Is the mushroom going to grow anymore after the veil breaks?
thanks

From what i understand and someone please correct me if i'm wrong but the mushroom is maturing and getting ready to drop its spores and that it will not get any more potent, and possibly lose potency(not sure on this)? Again don't take my word for any of this. Just what i've sort of gather by reading other posts.

right before the veil breaks it is slighty, probably unnoticeably more potent. If you are aiming for a larger yield as opposed to the benefit of a slightly more potent shroom, let em grow until the cap is totally flat.

both. I mean nothing is written in stone, any shroom can stop growing whenever, but in general shrooms will definitly grow after the veil breaks, definitly.

The thing is, the more you let them grow, the more that one shroom will take up the cakes water. Basically, when the cap gets flattish, pick it. And if your using half-pint cakes, shrooms dont ever grow real big anyway.

sorry you are all quite wrong. There is no evidence that mushrooms stop producing alkaloids at the time when the veil breaks. Think about it in real terms - are you saying that a strain of cubensis that holds its veil for longer is some how more potent? If you try this out you will find that indeed this is not true.
If we look at the reasons why the alkaloids are in the mushroom - to protect if from predation or to attract humans, the point would be lost unless the alkaloids remained to their optimum levels right up until the point of sporalation.
The veil is just a membrane - it has nothing to do with the synthesis of tryptophan into psilocybe/psilocin etc.
