That cake is the standard BRF recipe, inoc'd with the same LC as with the rye grain jars

Mexicana A seems to do it too... those BRF cakes arent ready for birthing, but they already have mini sclerotias forming on the glass...

Cake development followup... no sign of pinning yet, probably too soon, but the stones seem to be growing!

And in this cake, something seems to want to pop out, alien style

Are those stones or mushrooms? They look as if they have caps. Nice!

those are stones... but they seem to be expanding outward, while feeding superficially from the cake

one of the stones on a cake looks like it's being "expelled", slowing detaching from the cake

weird stuff

so what happened? did you manage to get fruits of your cakes?

so far, all I'm getting on the cakes is stones sprouting and expanding

as for my jars, the Mex A jars seem to have caught up with the Atlantis ones... they show more stones on the glass.

Also looks like my wild rice jars will have a better yield than my rye grain. Also, all my wild rice jars look healthy, but quite a few rye grain jars have greenish tones, with only little stones... probably contams, but i'll wait til the end to see

Cthulhu R'lyeh!

Have you tried putting the cakes into bigger jars before they start making stones? 1/2 pint into a pint jar, for example, or maybe even in wide mouth quarts, ala Chronic's tek?

No fruits. I cased the left over RGS but it has shown no growth and will be tossed soon. I do not think they will fruit unless cased.

the cakes start making stones before they are fully colonized...

The atl#7 was taken into lc from an isolate froma sclerotia. Yes they do take and do well from lc.

my atlantis did poorly on wheat grain which is similar to rye, they did much better on RGS but did not form sclerotia throughout the substrate (as workman had found on his cased grows.)
On my next grow I will be innoculating with a large amount of LC made from a stone. I will put interfaces in the jar for the sclerotia to grow up against, like bits of glass or metal discs.

I got prints from the original collector of this strain about 2 years ago and grew them out on ryegrass seed. The sclerotia form well on this substrate and I would say are somewhat less potent than tampanensis, but definitely active. The taste is similar to tampanensis. It certainly falls in the tampanensis/mexicana stirp in its macroscopic features. I haven't looked at the microscopic features. Rodger, you have a chance to try this strain yet?

I can personally attest to the work that Workman put into the #7. I got a hold of a couple other #'s, and this 7 is really amazing in comparison. You might be surprised if you check this one out, they're seemingly the quickest forming and very strong, in my opinion. I have a friend that ate a wet 1/4 and he says it was the most unique psychedelic experience of his life.

Triptout wrote- "I got a hold of a couple other #'s", and I would like to clarify that the person from whom the multispore syringe of Atl#7 was obtained had a friend who did all of the work with the strain with obtaining the different isolates. That guy said that he had the best yeild with the #7 isolate that was taken. Trip has only had the #7, that is unless you consider subisolates from stones from multispore syringe. I took 3 subisolates from the ms Atl#7 and have them labeled 1-3.
