Current situation is this... multiple shrooms are growing out of a common base, one shroom in particular (only about 2in long) has started to tear it's veil.... how can I remove this guy from the rest without causing trouble? And is this little guy enough of a dose to hit first platau effects?

yup, i'd say let them grow more before picking any.

I concur. I usually pluck clusters right before the large shroom begins to sporulate, the smallest shrooms are still closed, and the middle sized shrooms have all torn their veils.

Ok my friend has a few shrooms that popped just about the same time as each other. On one of the the veil has separated from the stem and the other hasnt yet. The thing is, they are only about as tall as my ring finger. The cap of the broken veiled shroom is more pointy at the top more beige than brown and has noticably slowed in growth. IS this one ready??? I'd say its about as tall as a cigarette lighter. Just want to make sure i pick em before they start to rot. By the way these are PES hawaiian race from lilshopofspores.com

ok Ron,

* Some shrooms grow big, some small, irregardless. My friend has Eq's grown in casings that were just two inches tall, while his invitro eq's look like bananas.. 9 or ten inches long, and over 30 grams apiece.

* When the veil breaks they are about as potent as they are going to get. My advice, if they are for you, pick them now. If you are going to make them go away to someone else, let them grow some more.
You will know when they begin to rot, it will be obvious, and thats a ways from where you are now.

IF you pic a shroom before a veil breaks is it ok??? Or just not as potent at that time??? Only two shrooms sprouted from this whole casing....:(....do you think I will feel ANYTHING off of these two shrooms??? About 3 inches tall, cap is about a quarter's diameter??

that's a pretty low dose but you'd prolly feel it a little.
you can pick before the veil tears, they are quite potent.

Well, I ate em last night. I didnt feel much at all....actually couldnt tell...smoked too much 'tobacco' with it, so no noticable differences with this LOW dose, but will try again.c

Was wondering if anyone here has experiance cutting a mature mushroom off of the cake in a maner as to leave an imature mushroom intact . Will the imature mush grow out or die off. Sterile blade and clean area pray for no contams just treid it out so we will see.

i usually just pull clumps off together when the biggest one is as big as i can stand it.... every time i've tried to take them off seperately i ended up killing the rest of the clump
