How much longer must i wait Lord!
    #3059750 - 08/27/04 10:11 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Quick question, since this is my first time growing. The mushrooms i have growing aren't that big at all, and the veil is already torn away. i think they largest is maybe an inch or an inch and a half long?

is this normal, or do they keep bulking up?

No, pick the mushroom once the veil is torn. No one can help you unless you explain what method you use, and a bit about your setup.

potency only stighlty decreases with size, but i wouldn't wait. if the veil broke chances are it won't grow too much more.

to a certain degree. u just don't want them staying on the cake/casing too long because if they start to rot it will cause contams.

Once the veil has broken there is no more actives produced (hence the redundancy of letting them grow after the veil breaks). Atleast that was what was thought a few years back when I was growing.

Aesthetics and printing are the only reasons you should let them mature.

Ive waited until after the veil breaks..they stop growing about a day after. I wait that long but shroomy's dont really get to big usually. It depends completly on your strain and conditions. PF tek will give you the smallest shrooms though you can get some bigger ones off. They do look much bigger in pics then when theyre on your cake. Just see what you get for a total yeild if you get about 35 grams fresh then you did ok.
