POTENCY OF MATURE VS RIPE
    #4031885 - 04/08/05 07:31 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Is there any real evidence that mushroom are more potent when they are bullets over fully mature, If there isnt then why harvest right when veil tears, Is this a myth if so please bust it

I believe potency is far more dependant on strain, type substrate, N content of that substrate, than when fruits are harvested.

I have had fruits WAY mature (because I was gone on a 3 day fishing trip)that were as POTENT as any.... ever picked before the vails broke.

A forum search for this topic reveals a number of threads, and a lot of people say a lot of things. From what I understand, the fruitbody stops producing psylocibin around the time the veil breaks, so letting it grow bigger only adds to the weight. Another benefit is that you dont have spores dropping all over your other caps.

Im sure someone will have a different opinion, but i have yet to see any substantial evidence for either side

I agree with Scat, i always let the mature.

like they're all sayin' there's a negligible difference in potency between a ripe and mature fruit
