I just ordered several syringes, including one of the ps mexicana Jalisco strain. I plan to inoc a LC with it right away, and also may just do a couple of pf cakes at the same time. Has anyone grown these out recently and have any tips to share?

P.mex jalisco needs lots of water and fresh air. They also need a thin cassing layer. If you make Pf cakes i would crumble and spawn to a thin cassed sub.

Does a US company have jalisco?

Thank you both for your tips. As I read further last night, I've also found that the prevailing favorite sub is millet for these, so that's what I will spawn to. I'm leaning towards straw as a sub, also based on reading more last night, but have time to adapt that.

It has been a few years since a grew them but i remember rye grass seed out preforming any other grains i tried for spawn. It was more expensive  but i remember continuing to buy it for that specie as well as other stone formers.

I could always try rye and millet for a side by side comparison. I did read a lot of people like rye for these also, so it would be worth it to see which works better for me. One thing I saw from a few sources is that these seemed to come up sterile, in other words, no spores produced. Do you recall if that was the case for you?

Some were light or had no spores but the majority were decent. The pic in my avatar was my most successful grow. I have to dig up the SD card that has all the pics...

Years back rye grass seed was the thing everybody used. Can be difficult to find these days. Lots of it out there for lawns, but most has fertilizers and/or weed killers and fungicides. Wal-Mart carries it in the spring, but only a small amount that often sells out quick. Any grain should work.
