Feel free to use this thread to document any and all relevant information pertaining to the cultivation of Psilocybin mushrooms from Mexico (i.g. Ps. caerulescens, mexicana, hoogshagenii/semperviva, zapotecorum etc.)
This is the fruiting chamber I use for most of my grows. It also features a successful grow of the Jalisco strain of Ps. mexicana: https://mycotopia.ne...-grow-tutorial/
Here's a link to a successful grow of Psilocybe hoogshagenii/semperviva using the aforementioned fruiting chamber: https://mycotopia.ne...two +substrates
Right now I'm working on a strain of the landslide or "derrumbe" variety of Ps. caerulescens.
This tray has been in fruiting conditions for one month. The grain spawn was whole oats. The substrate is coconut coir supplemented with coffee grounds and oat bran. I've attached a PDF of the exact substrate recipe below. The temperature is about 72F, humidity 95-99% with constant air exchange via an aquarium air pump and automated exhaust fanning for three minutes every six hours. The mycelium has overlayed the casing, which is a 10 : 1 : 0.5 ratio of peat moss : CaCO3 : sand.

I had an extra jar of Ps. caerulescens grain spawn on whole oats, and a leftover bag of pure hardwood sawdust spawn, so I decided to do an experiment and spawn the jar because another 'topia member believes that Ps. caerulescens may be lignicolous (wood-loving). This bag is about a week old, incubating around 70F:
I'm also attempting to grow Psilocybe zapotecorum. I have a multispore LC incubating presently, so things are moving along steadily.
