I tried to get a better camera for the final pics,
but ended up using my camera phone.

Is it just me, or do these look like midgets?
I thought they would go a lil' longer, but they started dropping
spores all over, so I picked them.
I wanted to get a clone too, but being Christmas I didn't get a
chance to make a LC jar to clone into.
So I just tried to print the bigger caps in hopes of trying
again in the future.
If your wondering about the second tray it's still in the GH
Never put out fruits, it is slowly continuing to colonize the casing
layer, so I'll give it a few more days.
** A thought** Maybe fruiting at 75* wasn't high enough?
Causing the smallish fruits?
I think when I fruit the Goliath I have colonizing, I will make a
small GH out of a storage tote, might be easier to get the higher
temp. until I can set up a thermometer.

Those look pretty good to me. Many strains are just naturally small so I wouldn't hold that against it. Its a pretty dense stand of mushrooms which is something I tend to favor over sparse fruitings even if the mushrooms are larger.

It is very difficult to determine species with pans and I am still trying to puzzle out exactly what seperates the species. Macroscopically, Panaeolus cambodginiensis has very dark brown colored pins but the mature mushrooms can can be paler. Microscopically they have small, nontransparent spores and supposedly thin-walled pleurocystidia. I say supposedly because wall thickness in the pleurocystidia can increase with maturity and I haven't looked at enough samples to be sure this is a significant feature.

I have also reclassifed the Goliath as Panaeolus tropicalis (which might be wrong) but it is more like P. tropicalis than any other sample I have examined and the Goliath was always considered unusual. It is a bit easier to visually identify species that I consider to be P. tropicalis. The pins are very dark with the Goliath having a olive tinge and the Sandoze a more chocolate color. The mushrooms are decidely grey, especially in the stem. Microscopically, the spores are transparent and small. Reading Stamets' "Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World" I got the impression that transparent, internally granulated spores was a bogus feature and probably not significant. But after examining several collections it appears to be a very significant feature that readily seperates the tropicalis from the other species. I still need to examine many more samples but eventually I hope to put together a detailed identification writeup for the Copelandia.

Again, good work and good luck with the Goliath.

That's intersting Workman. Goliath does seem unusual compared to other Pan cyans. I always considered it special, but tropicalis would make sense. Nice grow abbr...Congrats! :D

Bad news, the tray that fruited fell to contams.
The tray that didn't fruit, well didn't fruit!
So I ditched both and I am moving to Goliath for now.
Im hoping the LC I made catches on for future work.
And no trip report yet, haven't had any time to
relax and trip out :thumbdown:
