Just about a week later. I find it kind of funny that they are all growing right next to the drip line. I shouldn't be surprised, I think zaps can fruit under water.

Slight change in the ID of the mush from a very knowledgeable person. Not Ps. Sp sect. Zap but straight Ps. Zapotecorum. Still extremely excited but now need to track down spores from the correct one. :)

A zapotecorum grain that sat dry for 3-4months starting to reanimate on agar.

Sorry for the blurry Pic.

I take back my change in ID after confirming with the original collector of the print, Ps. Sp. Sect. Zapotecorum from Australia. Looks like they are finally starting to drop some spores!

I am so very lucky and honored that Mother Nature would allow the subs I planted in Spring to not only survive but thrive! I am truly in awe of the beauty and resilience of this fungus. These are Psilocybe Sp. Section Zapotecorum from Australia growing in the bottom of a 20 gallon trashcan. They are on store bought compost covered in store bought cacti soil with a thin layer of playground sand and originally RGS. They started pinning after a thorough soak and dip in the temps. They took three weeks to mature enough to drop spores. The stipes were very solid and fibrous, the caps were thinner and more delicate. They dried down to about 11% their original weight, pretty hearty mush. They separated from the sub easily in large clumps. I am shocked by the bounty, they were clustered so tightly. Going to make some great Christmas chocolates!

I did manage to take a little test drive with these. I don't trip much anymore but couldn't resist the opportunity. I ate one fresh 3.7g mushroom around 9 pm. I hadn't eaten much all day and had a light dinner around 6. I broke off chunks of the mush and ate them with almonds and water, worked pretty well. Within about 30 min, I could feel a gentle come up. About that time, one of my 2 legged animals decided they wanted to be a fuss. I got them back to bed and by 10, I could definitely feel it! I made a cup of Mexican hot chocolate, sipped about 1/2 of it and laid down on a mat in the living room. So far, no anxiety, no stomach issues, no body load, though my legs were a little wobbly. No major OEVs or internal dialog either. As I lay on the mat, after the hot chocolate, with my eyes closed, the CEV were incredible! Gentle, flowing, neon streaks, golden glows, free flowing, not geometric. When I'd open my eyes, the visuals would carry over for a few seconds then I'd almost feel sober-ish. I'd close my eyes and be enveloped by the visuals again. The energy level was just right, no yawns, no drowsiness, despite being exhausted, I felt lightly energized.

One odd thing that stood out was audible hallucinations. As I was laying on the mat with my eyes closed, the only sound was the drone of the dehydrator. Suddenly a piercing synthetic sound bolted through me, I took a breath and I sat up to figure out WTF?! It really shocked and agitated me for a min. The feline in the room looked like the only noise was me so I laid back down into my CEV. The noise happened a few more times but not so intensely, each time I'd take a breath after. Then it came to me, I was "forgetting to breath". These were signals from my brain to my body telling it to breathe and somehow I could hear them..... :) I started paying more attention to my breathing and the sounds went away. Eventually got up, took a B-hit, finished the chocolate, chilled some more then made my way to bed around 12. I have an enjoyable, mild afterglow today.

Such a beautiful mushroom!
