"I gave my strength.
For years like an ox I pushed,
and for years like a ship I sank
to the bottom of that unknown sea.

 

I'm still learning to be free and not so somber.
Every night I stay up a little longer
searching on that field of stars.

 

Do you know who you are?
Can you dig up my tree?
Can you find what's inside of me?
Find the origin of my defeat.

 

In the beginning
I was all dreams
Times have changed—
I'm no longer the same.

 

I don't want you to leave.
It's so bittersweet
that this is the time you met me;
I'm going through a long phase.

 

I don't try to relate,
I don't really try to find
someone to sedate me.
Hard out for remedy,
it's so bittersweet (you and me).

 

In the beginning
I was all dreams
Times have changed—
I'm no longer the same.

 

Every day's a lesson in giving away.
Stripes on my floor,
dark shots at my door.
Have you ever walked in on a queen before?

 

I just went through the valley,
I know it's changed me,
fire from eternity,
the origin of my dreams.

 

In the beginning
I was all dreams.
Time caught up with me
and I can finally see."

"I tried so hard my dear to show that you're my every dream.
Yet you're afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
 
Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now for things I didn't do
In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start
Why can't I free your doubtful mind, and melt your cold cold heart
 
You'll never know how much it hurts to see you sit and cry
You know you need and want my love yet you're afraid to try
Why do you run and hide from life, to try it just ain't smart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
 
There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me
But now I know your heart is shackled to a memory
The more I learn to care for you, the more we drift apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart"

Thank you for this.  And the spores.  I swabbed 8 other species/varieties the same day, the tampanesis were clearly wildly viable on day 3.  I am experimenting with additives in the agar and I put a pinch of used coffee grounds in.  I wonder if that had any bearing on how fast the plates germinated?  Anyways, at the moment I know for a fact that I at least have these bucketlist mushrooms successfully on agar.  I imagine I'll fruit them in a Shadowbox type FC I made for semperviva.  Reading this, do these seem to like it a little wetter?

I seem to recall that PF said tampanensis produces very well if the grainspawn is prepped using weak coffee water. Like humans, fungi seems to love the coffee.

 

I would actually say that tampanensis prefers a very similar environment to cubensis. They don't tolerate direct misting as well as Ps. mexicana. I keep the humidity around 95% and mist once or twice daily max, and set the fan to 4-5 times daily for 2-3 minutes each cycle.

 

I hope you'll have success... I love these mushrooms and have been eating a lot of this particular species recently.

I'm thinking about adding some coffee grounds to my ATL#7 sub when I break open the quart jar and take out the stones (and potentially a future Semperviva grow)-- but I've always been gun-shy about using it because of contam fears.

What I have decided to try is sterilizing some (fully dried) grounds and sprinkling a very thin, even layer across the middle of the (pasteurized) sub as I'm laying it-- so that it's completely buried but available across the sub. I'm hoping this way it will be covered top and bottom by safe sub, and not be exposed to the air or bottoms or edges, keeping it away from potential nasties better.

 

What do you think?

I used to use coffee water for all my grains. I’ve gotten lazy but now I have started collecting all my grounds so I have to use them. I’ve been adding them with straw to my compost tumbler as a substitute for manure and saving manure just for pans. Figured if I was going to try your coir/coffee sub I’d see what happens with them in the agar as my first experiment in training mycelium.

I’m not convinced it actually increases colonization times or not, but it’s a solid ingredient and I like not needing to mess with manure and it stopped my wife putting the grounds down my garbage disposal...

I followed the substrate recipe and wound up with 4 quarts not 2. I just grabbed handfuls and loaded the jars to PC. I’m wondering if that seems reasonable if I didn’t pack it. I’ve never grown with supplemented coir and by volume it is very little nutrition.

I tend to have coffee in my brewer everyday. So I just run a cup through my spent beans. I've noticed better colonization times with coffee, but never kept hard data.

My phenotype looks like cotton balls. Or snow balls really. Is this a bad sign? Also for casing I am going with 6 parts peat, 1 part sand, 1 part verm with roughly 6 tbs pickling lime, pasteurized.

Any hints from here regarding fruiting, whether to let the casing sit for a few days, lots of evaporation, heavy misting? Anything is appreciated

I usually incubate my casings with mexicana and tampanensis, 24 to 48 hours. They like similar conditions to cubes. High humidity (95%-ish RH and decent airflow (fan 3-4x daily). Casings should be moist/spongey but not soaking wet. I can't recall ever seeing the mycelium look like that. It's usually pretty much identical to mexicana mycelium... maybe a little bit more aggressive.

That’s disconcerting. Same subs, My Tampanesis is extremely fluffy, my Chichon Nindo is very faint and grey. They colonized roughly the same amount of time with a slight edge to the Tampanesis, both ahead of my Semperviva. Two shoeboxes of each, all came from a different wedge. Time will tell.

On a scale of Pans to Semperviva what are fruiting times like?

Was the original MS inoculation on agar fluffy as well? I wouldn’t worry too much... start a new plate and choose a different sector if it concerns you. Fruiting times vary but on average the same as Ps. mexicana, same as cubensis.

Both my Tamp Galindoi and Atl#7 cultures have been a rich white-- FWIW.

JR, my Galindoi was pinning about 10 days from spawning to the coir sub if I recall--

Yes it’s all been fluffy. A little more so than Coastal’s second photo maybe. It’s certainly been aggressive. No attempts at isolation were ever made and it was the most abundant germinater. I just took the healthiest looking and fastest sections and since they all seemed clean from the start I took fairly large transfers to capture as many genetics as possible.

So I just received a tampensis swab, is 20% manure, 20% worm castings, 25% vermiculite, 5% sand, 5% perlite, and 25% coir sound like an okay substrate for tampensis and mexicana? Last time I worked with Mexicana I just cased grain, this time I would like to go a little more naturual with it. Also, do they prefer a deep substrate like cubensis, or a thin substrate like pan cyans?

Is sand essential to Tampanesis substrate?
If it forms stones will/can it still fruit?
Tampanesis like it a little drier than Mexicana you say?

Sand is not necessary for tampanensis, and I don't think they're picky about substrate - I've had luck with pf cakes, straw & coir, and cased grain, and am sure they'd do fine as well on manure based substrates. Same conditions as mexicana will work.

 

Edit: forgot to add that it'll fruit fine with sclerotia.
