Psilocybe Caerulescens a wood lover?
Posted 15 July 2020 - 02:46 PM
Just from those two lines, it is a wood lover (soft wood?), likes lots of light, lots of water, heavy sub and high iron/ mineral content?
Here are two jars, unfortunately the same culture was not used so it is not a true comparison. That being said, it took the jar on the left with no wood added 2 weeks longer than the one on the right w/a Tbl of hard wood fuel block added to the sub. For the record, the jar w/oak added to it (not pictured) is taking a long time and looks unhappy.

See what that stuff does on Naturescapes mulch........I do believe you are correct sir....soft woody.......splains the reaction to oak too.....

Thank you Arathu, I'm going to have to p/up some Naturescapes, see how it does. Should I use it as the entire sub + supplement?
Outside the mulches can basically be used right out of the bag for the most part (carries risk though). Indoors and in bags various mixtures of mulch and sawdust + supplement like bran.
I like to add potting soils or garden compost too at times....regardless anything enriched has to be sterilized but outside can be pasteurized and even straight from the bag.
Although the latter can be risky and I've been burned by mulch that is already carrying another fungus........it definitely pays to be thorough and consistent IME.
