"The veil"?
    #3132684 - 09/14/04 01:53 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I want to clarify something really quick.

Is this correct: The veil is the little extra ring (sorta like a donut or washer) an inch or so below the cap that goes around the stem of the mushroom. You don't see it for a while when the shroom is just starting to grow. The "veil breaking" is when a small knotch cracks in this donut-washer shape, alsmost like some body took a small slice out of it. After you notice this knotch, it is the best time to harvest the mushroom.

I looked up veil in the glossary, but its not very specific. You might think about adding the phrase "veil breaking" or something of that nature.

Yes, because production of the active chemicals that you use to trip (psilocybin, psilocin) has finished at that time.

However, if you want to sporeprint the mushroom let it mature (cap opens out and spore are dropped some time later).

Ok, glad I understood. "when the veil breaks" is used so often on this board that it would be nice to see explained in layman's terms somewhere accessible.

Thanks guys.

You are partially correct. You are describing the remains of the veil. The veil originally stretches from the "donut-washer" you describe out to the bottom edge of the cap, covering the gills. As soon as you can see the gills the veil has broken.

Oh.... so as soon as the donut shape exists (encirlces the stalk), the veil has broken and it's time to pick the shroom?

utopian, what I'm saying is I didn't really know what "when the veil breaks" means and couldn't find it specifically explained. I obviously had an idea, but it's nice to know exactly.

I see, it doesn't exactly explain what the veil is does it.

Yah... I read that before. Now that we've had this discussion it makes perfect sense (and seems like it should have the first time I read it). Thanks Anno.
