Question re: potency after the veil breaks
    #3330752 - 11/07/04 08:06 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

How soon and how rapidly does the potency start to diminish after the veil breaks? If one picked a cake half a day or so after all of the veils broke, is that a tangible problem? Thanks

Lots of debate over this subject... but basically it doesn't make any difference. You can let it ripen as much as you want.

Some say that no more psilocybin is produced after sporation begins... some say it still does. I think it doesn't matter because once the cap opens up, the mushroom doesn't bulk up anyways.

So given this idea, it would be wise to let caps mature until no more growth appears as opposed to picking right when the veil rips away, right? Would rot occur eventually or would the mushrooms simply sieze to grow anymore that's worth continueing with?

The mushrooms will stop growing. I wait until the caps open up flat which happens 1-2 days after the veils breaks usually. If you wait say 5 days or so the cap just keeps turning up and they dont grow anymore.

Basically its all personal preference. I dont think the potency decreases (even per weight) at all during the cycle but some people do. Either way theres no set time limit.

I don't like letting my cakes/casings sit idle. Working on last few mushrooms seems way too idle for me. I harvest when about 80-90% of caps have opened fully.

This casing is just about ready for harvest by my preference. Left it for 12 hours more.
