I was just wondering, do you have to use Alder wood chips or can I use other types of wood chips for Cyanascens colonization? Thanks for info.

They like any hardwood chip. Mix in a bit of sawdust too.

didn't seem to like willow, though.
cyans may be different.

Around here, Asurescens and Cyanescens often grow side by side. We should start seeing them in six weeks or so....can't wait!

Can I use any sawdust or does that have to be hardwood as well?

I found a bag of various hardwood pellets for smoking meats, it's a combo of Hickory, Mesquite, Alder, and Oak. When you soak them they seperate into sawdust. Hopefully that will work.

sharky , i have azure myc growing on alder and oak and i just found out today that the cyans myc is doing a great job on horse chestnutleaves as well ,these are leaves stocked for 1 or 2 yrs so some composting has happened ,this was started from dowels that were grown in mycobags and have been stalling for a while and they really revived after being introduced to those loosely spread leaves.Acorns (from oak) can be used as well. The twigs that come out of the compostheap are good to use also when there is no other fungus colonizing on them yet.
i'd advice you to put some fresh cut woodtwigs inside as well with the woodchips as they seem to prefer it,but with the alder mixed in already you should be fine too i guess

Nice pictures first off.

Are you talking about Pan. cyans. or Psilocybe Cyans?

Or is there any real difference to cultivating them?

(got a Psil. Cyan. print, gotta do something with it :P)

huge difference
if i'm not mistaken panaeolis cyanescens is a warm loving fungus ,while psilocybe cyanescens is a cold loving one ,living in temperate zones and growing on woodsubstrates ,a celluloselover
cyanescens just means blueing ,cfr. the color cyan like in cmyk
