I was wondering what others here thought of the differences in potency between rice substrates, other grains, and straw, manure, etc.

Also I have never really noticed any potency difference in mushies with open caps/broken viels and closed capped mushies. But I have heard closed is better. Does anyone think there is a potency difference.

there is possibly a potency difference between the different substrates and different stages of maturity, but as far as I can judge the natural variation in potency is way to big to really "see" the small differences.

By eating the mushooms there is no chance to really judge if a substrate is "better". Exact extractions of the fruitbodies would have to be done, but also a great amount of measurement are needed to be able to find a concrete difference of the substrates.

I find this kind of discussion about this substrate producing stronger mushrooms than the other one not really constructive. By means of changing the substrate one will never get suddenly mushrooms that are twice as potent. If someone is really interested in stronger mushrooms, then a different species should be cultivated.
