why in most pics I see in the growing section do people let thir shrooms table top?
    #4530612 - 08/13/05 05:41 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

why in all the pics I see of shrooms do most all the growers let the shrooms table top out? or close to table topping. I heard that the shrooms were at the most potent just as the vail is breaking away from the stem, and as the shroom starts toward table topping its useing more psyclibin to to start to prepare to drop its spores? Can someone please tell me if this is true or not? The only thing I can think as an answer to this is, thay are sacrificing potency for weight.

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

There hasn't been any conclusion to the debate of whether or not they stop producing psilo once the veil breaks, so a lot of people just let them live/grow. Aesthetics is a big reason I believe. :smile:

I let mine go all the way, makes for a larger and more nice fruit to look at generally, in my opinion :smile:

There isn't any scientific data on this matter.

just he says she says...bullshit.


I like to harvest before the veil breaks...if I'm just harvesting fruits...because they look nicer...IMHO

I like to let the caps flatten out completely...if I'm going to be making spore prints.

I think alot of people wait because they arent selling the mushrooms. If the mushroom is harvested before the veil breaks the mushrooms will stay intact better when dried/packaged for sale. People who use them for personal use will like to see them fully mature to better appreciate the efforts they put into the grow.

For BIG PRINTS


For FUN & pictures

At least - IMHO - there is NO DIFFERENCE in POTENCY

Just before - or as the veil breaks - makes for NICE LOOKING.



In full mature bloom, I believe you pick up about 5 to 10% more weight.

Ive had a number of trips of only aborts, only closed caps, and only flattened and spore covered caps. Never noticed a difference. Taste might be better as closed caps..but their still pretty rancid to me.

i think most growers here are aiming to get more weight from thier yeilds than potency. yea can't sell a "supposed potentcy", but by weight , weight is weight. see what i'm saying?

I have them sitting all over the house,lol.
