AlisonWonderland: can you share a little about your beautiful grow? Type of substrate and how thick the substrate was? There must be some other secrets to such a fine grow, these look like they grew under perfect conditions. You must be very pleased. Regards mjroom.

Thank you everyone.  Thank you Psilocybe hoogshagenii for gracing us with your presence this time around.  :smile:

Hello mjroom sure of course. Happy to answer any questions.  Substrate was straw pellets and compost at about an inch thick.  The straw pellets are from a local pet store. Compost is homemade and manure based.  Grown outdoors in a garden using TVCasualty's WTT fruiting chamber placed in the shade.  There are no secrets at all.  A harmonious balance of high humidity, fresh air, natural light, and these beautiful beings take care of themselves.  :happy:

so what does your compost mix look like? Is it basically like a cactus mix with a small percent of dung included? I ask as I was under the impression most of the magic Mexican varieties are not primarily dung lovers. I take it that the thin substrate layer is easier to keep moist and that it all breaths better than thicker substrates can? Have you done similar grows on the other magics like Mexicana, Zapotecorum, Caerulescens, Azetcorum, Tampanensis? All a little different from the Semperviva and require adjustments but similar to grow I expect? Would appreciate any comments and especially photos of any other grows along with and pointers. Very inspirational work especially like some of your more subtle graphics very nice.thank you for posting and sharing your hard work. Regards mjroom.

 

PS: looking at your pictures is like looking at a box full of perfection. What amazing colours.

Just a few more questions about your substrate; what is the breakdown of manure (can either horse or steer be used?) to organic compost  to hay/straw and is there any sand used? Lastly what do you case with and what thickness of casing works best for you, 1/4" - 1/2"?  I think that's everything I wanted to ask you. I will petition the mushroom spirits for guidance and direction. Please post photos of any other grows you might have done of other mushrooms especially p. caerulescens (if possible). Many thanks,mjroom

In my experience, Viva colonizes quickly (2-3 weeks for grain jars), and then another couple weeks to colonize a sub.  Then it gets slow, as it can take 3-4 weeks to produce a flush.

 

So figure a couple months until you see your first flush.

 

But this is a very user-friendly species.  It's as easy as growing cubes.

Nice! Does it require a casing layer or would it work directly spawned to compost? And where could I aquire spores ? Seems like the sites I normally use are out. Thank you~

This is amazing grow, and fruiting chamber is ingenious. I have one more thou. What are the temps at your location? Day/night changes I mean. I would like to try this setup with Martinique soon buy we have a shitty summer this year and night temps are down to 10C sometimes.

Congratulation once again on your lovely babies.
