Most cultivators recommend harvest just before the veil breaks for peak potency, but there is no harm in letting your mushrooms mature. Once the cap opens they will grow larger, but if you wait too long the spores will drop and that may be a mess you don't want to deal with.

if u let them grow out, u will get more mushrooms weight, but less psicolin. try harvesting early, then u will hav more nutrients for more flushes, and more psilocybin.

They don't decrease in potency they just don't get any stronger. Drying as the veil breaks or just before makes for less damage when handling and packaging. I'll stand behind that too.
