veil breaking= done growing?
    #3062092 - 08/28/04 03:29 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

when the veil breaks will mushrooms grow much after that? also does pink buffalo strain produce small fruits? my friend has some and the veils are starting to break at like 2 inches high, stem about the size of a pink finger. should she pick soon or will they get any bigger?

They'll get a little bigger alright, not a big increase in weight but size will increase a bit.

It's been reported that the best time to pick is right before the veil breaks.

Same here..I let them grow 24 hours after veil is complely gone. Caps open nice and pretty and no difference was noted between 1 gram after the veil opened and 1 gram before the veil opened with 1 week between tests.

No offense scat, but I doubt the ability of self dosing to find potency to truly tell one anything. It's not only incredibly subjective, there are too many factors within our own bodies and our enviroments that influence it. If you extracted and assayed the psilo content then that would be an accomplishment. I do however agree with you that there is very little difference if at all. Just don't let the spores drop.

None taken, your absolutly right. But I'm not saying there isnt a difference, I'm just saying its not noticable. I wasnt trying to test if there was a difference just if I (as a fairly experienced tripper and shroomer, while still a novice to cultivation) could tell the difference. I know what a gram does to me and what most of the variances are (because it is different every time depending on mood, setting, surroundings, thoughts ect) so I use that as a tester. Is it rock solid proof of anything? No, it just means that whoever's taking these isnt going to notice a difference if the veil was broken or if it was left to grow a little longer.

Also I do let the spores drop and hasnt shown itself to be a problem yet. I hear of people saying it hurts future flushes but so far I have found flushes after the first to be greater not less. I'm still experimenting with this with different strains though and tracking what I pull off each flush off each casing and see if I can draw any conclusions from that but so far these are it.

As far as potency is concerned there ain't A person alive that can tell the difference between open or closed, IMHO it's a cosmetic thing only keeping the casings cleaner and maybe a little less breakage in transporting. Anyone that says they can tell a difference needs to get a life bc there full of shit (fact!) It's just a moot point nothing more IMHO. :wink:
