harvest time ???
    #3874075 - 03/05/05 08:34 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

A friend once told me it was better to harvest muchrooms when they were smaller and not matured. He said that they would be more potent . is this a load of crap or is there any truth to it? I've been tought to harvest just before the viel tears regardless of the shrooms size.

If you want to get spores dont harvest until mature for eating harvest right after cap separates from the viel

If you put your head to the grass, you can hear it growing

Well its true, but at the same time the shroom still grows more, so I would wait til you got the cap separated from the stem then harvest...

Depends on if your gonna make spore prints or not...as least for me.

If I'm taking spore prints I wait til the cap completely flattens out...before harvesting them.

If I'm just wanting fruit...I harvest before the veil breaks.
Not as messy(don't get spores all over the place) and the fruits look nicer...IMO

I haven't noticed any potency difference between either.

I havent noticed any potency difference either way... I prefer to let the caps expand, because in my experience, my friends tend to be more amazed with them.... I think that is simply the old "caps are more potent" myth... I dont believe in that either tho.... I guess if u think it, it will be lol  :stoned:
