at what size do pinheads contain most of the potency?
    #4294695 - 06/14/05 12:42 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I'm trying to figure when my ecuadorians pins have 90% of their potency, because I'm about to pick my first batch and I'm going to eat the pins fresh, but I don't feel like tripping too hard today..

when the viel begins to tear away from the cap is when they are most potent I usually wait a while after this happens, I pick as soon as the cap begins to flatten but before the spores drop.

I understand this, but I am picking a bunch of giant shrooms, and a bunch of tiny babies that are 1/2-1" that I'm going to eat, but I need help figuring out how strong the babies are.

Wet is the hardest way to judge potency, if you dry them an 1/8th of those tiny shrooms will equal a strong trip.

because I'm going to dunk and case, there are only 5 pins, but 25 mature shrooms and we don't wanna wait another 4 days to get only 5 more, we'd rather start the next flush

>when the viel begins to tear away from the cap is when they are most potent

Do you have any proof for this claim?

No I have no proof but this is what most pro level growers have told me, If you read the rest of my post it says I wait until they mature a little more because I did an experiment where I ate equal weights 2 weeks apart from each other same strain one was picked right when the veil tore the others where a little more mature I triped way harder off the mature shrooms there is no exact time when the mushroom stops producing but as a general rule of thumb they are pretty potent when cap tears from veil sorry for the miss wording.
