i'm growing cubensis, what happens if you don't pick the mushrooms for a while? how long can they stay growing on the cake before they go bad?

i think you misspelled "portobellos", and i would definitely try to get them before they drop the spores

well as you probably already know its advised that you pick your shrooms right as the veil is breaking. 2 reasons on why you do.
#1 it is said that psilocybin stops being produced once the mushie starts to drop its spores, so it would make a mushie less potent in thoery cause its getting bigger with no more magic being added to it.

#2 once the veil opens it drops spores just making a big purple mess.

so now that we have covered that. i will say i have never let a shroom grow past this point so i really dont know a true answer but ill take a guess. i imagine one of two things will make the mushie grow no more. it gets so big it just falls off. it runs out of nute/water and just starts drying up and falls off. thats the best i can do.

If its left in a humid environment (ie, terrarium) then the caps will start rotting about a week or so after full maturity.

Also, the thing about picking when the veil breaks for more potency is just a theory. No proof yet. Personally I pick mine just as they're dropping spores.

spores are a mess
but If the mushroom are growing psilocybin is being produced no reason to suspect other wise

reason people pick edibles at veil break is because of the better taste
