For the record, I now know of someone that has claimed that from their direct experience that Tampanensis mycelium was active--- the people in this thread earlier in the year that were going to experiment with theirs after aging it a couple months never posted about their results, but I thought I would mention it here to add to the "anecdotal/unverified claims" section of the discussion. FWIW this guy is a trusted contributor at the place I heard the info, but it's still just one claim.

I wonder about the variables that could contribute to differing results, such as strain, incubation time etc, and also how different ratios of active compounds might be expressed in different species’ mycelium...

It would be a pretty big deal if it's repeatable. There are a good number of people (like me) that grow Tamps or Mexicana's as their first step away from cubes-- lots of people use them, so if it were true I would have thought someone would have tried it before.
FWIW I asked him if there could have been small stones in the grain that he mis-took for grain, but he insisted it was only WBS in there... but I guess we'll see. The effects were mild but definitely there, so it's an incentive to learn more.
I have two rye quarts of Tamps (1 var. Galindoi and 1 Atl#7) that have been colonized since July. I have been ignoring them while doing other things, letting the stones in each get old. When it comes time to break them open to spawn them, I might dry some of the grain and give it a shot in tea-- but that won't be for awhile. I was going to wait until spring next year and really age these things out.
Maybe I'll put some of my culture to some brown rice or barley in some half quarts myself-- though I personally wouldn't expect much potency early on in the colonization/consolidation. Who knows...

I wholly agree-- I am trying to get better about getting prints of my Semps so I can get them out there-- the harvest with the largest mature caps on my little cased grain tray was the one during my move when they all over-ripened and started to blacken-- I only got 2 prints from 20 or so caps because they were all too far gone by the time I got them packed, moved, unpacked, and was minimally set up to harvest
It’d be great to be able to mail spore-prints inside of little myceliated grain tek instruction booklets.
Well, unfortunately that would dive head-long into the illegal everywhere since they would be demonstrably sent for growing a psychoactives as opposed to microscopy/study of the spores. Stupid laws...
BUT-- I'm all for sharing a link online to your delightful PDF with all those I send prints to in a secure way

Aw come on! Ya gotta be all sane n sensible n rational about it eh? Maybe we could just print it in invisible ink
Yeah they are a trick to print. Def no criticism here, I just hope to one day feel like I'm not the only person on the planet who has prints of this mushroom lol

I have a strong feeling they will grow in popularity-- and availability too. Folks like you are doing a real service to the community by organizing the collective's information exchanges into easy to follow destinations-- hi five bro

Thanks brah, it's great that folks appreciate it and that the message has actually come through and allowed a few peeps to generate their own grain that really works. Thanks for helping out, every little bit counts

Just wondering what’s the longest you guys have run semperviva for (I know 2-3 months seems to be the standard) and how do you find the strength compares at different time points if you’ve tried them? I guess the mycelium must run out of steam sometime!
