Nothing so far, I guess? I'm thinking I'll do this, then, and use this thread as an in-progress workspace.
I've thought of three experiments:
1. agar -> grain -> substrate -> fruits -> clone to agar, repeat
keeping track of yields and colonization time for each cycle;
2. agar -> agar, repeat
fruiting every third (or fourth, or whatever) transfer, keeping track of yields and colonization times;
3. grain -> grain, repeat
fruiting each transfer (or every other or whatever) and recording data.
My thought is to do use three clones each of three cubensis varieties simultaneously (9 cultures in total). Due to space considerations, I think I'll fruit in vitro in bags. I prefer to grow on manure and straw generally, but to make things more consistent I might just use coir for substrate, not sure about this still.
The main thing I can't control is temperature: in the winter I grow in a heated space, so I can control that, but it gets hot in the summer and I don't have cooling available.
I have space to do one of these experiments at a time, currently. I'm curious about the results, but I also want to get a start at doing statistically rigorous experiments with psychedelic agronomy as there might be somewhat of a shortage of this in the OMC. I'd really appreciate feedback, suggestions, or critique...
