Re: Harvesting all at one time? [Re: doc34]

I agree. There was a lot of people speculating that production of psilocybin stops when sporation begins, thus harvest right before sporation begins. But there's no research to prove all that.

Another speculation is that there is more psilocybin in infant mushrooms. I find this to be untrue IME. Aborts are something else all together. It's just my guess, but maybe increase comes from trying to fight back whatever is causing it to abort.

Once the sporation begins, you see the gills taking on dark color. Not the cap, the gills. Even if the speculation is right and psilocybin slows or stops at this point, potency wouldn't go down because mushroom doesn't add bulk after sporation begins.

So, this is all about speculations on speculations. No hard data or consistant reports.

FME, little ones are same as large ones. Because of benefits of harvesting the whole flush at once outweighs benefits of satisfying itchy fingers(proven benefits), I'll stick with allowing little ones to catch up a bit before harvesting the entire flush as one. Unless of course, your itchy fingers need some serious scratching.
