How old is too old to harvest Cyans?????
    #3276973 - 10/25/04 10:26 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Some of the Cyans that I saw this weekend were past their prime...I THINK.

If they still have fairly firm bodies but are pretty dark...will they still have the same sort of reaction as tight little fresh ones or do they lose their potency at some point???

If they do...how far is too far gone???

Thanks for any info!

Thanks Freedom... I've seen responses like "would you eat rotten produce", but never a responsible answer about potency when they dry on the stem or remain wet and darken.

mushy and black, if just the gills look dark(spores) and the cap inside the wavy flower looks fresh I say it good to go.

Rot is obvious.

Cool! Thanks!

Lots of spores on this weekends haul and I really wondered if they were spent because they'd gotten to that point.

If they disintegrate when you reach down to pick them, then they are too old. Otherwise, it's all good. :wink:

Seriously though, even when they are black they will work just fine after youve dried them.

But is it really worth the risk? I sure as hell don't feel like vomiting my guts out going into a trip, that would just be hell.

hrm, I don't think it will come to that. Like I said, if it breaks into pieces when you pick it, then maybe it could make you sick. I don't think that a relatively firm shroom (black or not) would make you puke any more than a fresh pinner.

Does anyone else have an opinion?

Do cyans lose potency throughout the duration of their life cycle?

Even if some have a little rot to them, drying kills any bacteria. But then I do not reccomend picking rotted shrooms. Of course you should check my new post which shows some older specimens I found yesterday but they did not rot.
