Strictly for consuption purposes I always pick before they open or when I see the veil stretched out. However, don't worry if they open, take advantage and make a print or two. I often have cubies open while I'm out, and I just pick them when I arrive at home. I once read that all the stored up nutrients or chemicals whatever are going to be used, not necessarily consumed, but deminished by the cubie as it goes into spore production. Makes sense to me. Pick them before they open if your worried about potency.

it doesnt really matter if you pick them right before the veil breaks or right when it does. if you leave it to break its veil on its own tho it could always grow a bit larger. and when you are flushing your cake/casing you pick everything thats what flushing is. so if there attached at the base i would just pick the whole thing
