when to pick??
    #3373313 - 11/17/04 11:34 AM (12 years, 25 days ago)

sorry, i know this is a subject of debate and i've read multiple opinions about it, but after reading this post:

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/3369172/an/0/page/0

somebody said to pick that big one and let the others have a go at it. My biggest is actually larger than this one....i was waiting for the cap to fan out and get larger before i picked....should I go ahead and take care of it now? its been going for about 5 days now, its huge....if i let it go longer, will that start to cut down on the potency? thanks. (sorry, no dig camera to post with.)

another thought--this is just an afterthought from the above post, but do all shrooms have caps that fan out, or are different varieties different? mine look exactly like the ones in the above link...if i let them go long enough, will the veils break and fan out? is it important to pick before that?

Alot of it is preference. It has been proven that larger mushrooms lose potency, but this is only in reference to Volume/Content not because the psilocybin degenerates or anything like that. So it has alot to do with when you feel its large enough for consumption. Once the veil tears that is general pick time guideline.
