been away for a long time. Good to be back.
I live in Kenya. A good friend of mine found what he thought were P cubensis in the Masai Mara, which is a national reserve in the southern part of the country famous for its insane wildlife. It's an interesting find because, sfaik, there are not many naturally occurring Psilocybe species / strains in this part of the world. If it is native then it goes a long way to supporting McKenna's stoned ape theory. After all, the Great Rift Valley is where humankind kicked off.
Anyways, were calling them Blu Gnus.
So I got a print and did a basic PF Tek grow. Poor yields but very, very powerful.
I decided to up the ante and did a bulk grow. I used a popcorn spawn into OZZZ's horse-poo tek (great tek BTW, I recommend it). It all went swimmingly.
It hasn't fully colonised the tub, but I'd call it 99% there and the pins are already coming out crazy long (I guess about up to 1 inch) without colouring on the tips.
Question: is it safe to case with hydrated coir with such long pins, or am I better getting them to fruit and then case the second flush?
Best wishes from The Rift....xxx
