When to Harvest?
    #3327392 - 11/06/04 01:26 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)



This isn't a picture of my stuff. It is a picture I got from the gallery. I am wondering if I haven't been waiting long enough to harvest. I pck my fruit the second I see any flaring whatsover. And I am wondering if I pick too soon. I have only let a few of my shrooms get as big as the ones in the example. Should I let my heads flare that big before picking them?

why would u pick soon as u see them? do u mean when theyre pins? harvest just before or after the veil breaks. but nowadays i hear people saying that theyre just as potent when u let them grow out.

do whatever.

Well, that is interesting. I pick them as soon as I see the veil break. But if that is the case, maybe I should just experiment and let a couple of cakes grow as big as God will let them.

Only prob with that though is that I would need to eat quarters back to back every other day to get an idea of which are better. Given the time commitment of a good journey to the nethersphere...I may just have to wait until Christmas break.

I let my guys grow up and pick the whole cake when most of them break veil. That way I can dunk and start over.

It doesnt matter when you pick them they'll be the same potency..I let mine open up all the way but many pick just as or even before the veil breaks. Theres much talk of shrooms being more potent before the veil breaks but I don't believe it.

Thats not Shoneys cake I believe but the "black" stuff is blue and is the actives bruising which is normal.

This is a really interesting thread of thought. I would be really interested in anybody elses philosophies about when is the best time for harvesting.

I see no point in not going for maximum bulk. Unless the actives stop being produced at some point and are "diluted" by the further growth of the mushroom, but I've heard no such thing.

Okay... let me explain exactly how I do it.

First couple that break veil, I give them another 6 hours and harvest to take prints. Then next set that break veil, I let them open up fully, then I give them upto 2 days, normally about 1 day for other little ones to catch up. Then it's harvest time. Mushrooms grow really fast and that extra 1-2 days make a large difference in yield.

I've heard that one should not let spores drop on the casing layer because this informs the mycelium that reproductive system has successfully been fulfilled its job and mushroom production will stop.
