Tricky derrumbe. I get always new pins but older ones abort really quick. I think they need much more fresh air.

Very interesting, maybe try growing them on a landslide where they occur naturally.

Just a thought, Still a cool attempt to fruit. Wonder why they don't go beyond that size.

I had the exact same problem with the closely related Psilocybe villarrealiae and similar issues with P. weilii which is also a close relative. Later pins did finally mature but the yields were poor. It seems like something is missing but I am not sure what.

I fan now much more and now some pins are much bigger and all looks fine.

I try the next time a other substrate and try to modify the casing layer.

Alan´s and cactus idea´s about the sandy casing is good. For me it looks at all habitat pics that the caerulescens fight trough a very compact soil with an "maybe" very high co2 content. After the pins break out they get very much fresh air.

Also when a landslide occurs the mycel get "shocked" from the fresh air and then the shrooms begin to call for shroom eaters :loveeyes:.

But maybe only the substrate from me is bad.

I speak every day with the caeru´s maybe they are nice to me and show me full fruits.

But they are for sure more difficult then the zapo´s.

The vill. still didn't fruit here i think i have to begin again.

About 25 days for the first pins but it need now again 10 days for good pins. The grow now very good i post tomorrow new pics. The more fresh air seems to be very good for them.

Those shrooms are really beautiful and now they grow really quick. I let the caps now mature a little longer to see the full caps.

I harvested the first shrooms and made prints. Everything seems fine. The shrooms blue good and they also have a nice smell.

I have now pins in all 3 trays i made seems they like every substrate i mixed.

I try to get so much prints as possible and send them out to some good growers when i have new money. I hope that many guys and girls have many joy with this beautiful shrooms.

Thank cactu for this :headbang:

Nice Prankster! Glad to see that they finally opened up for ya.
So, do you think it was the lack of fresh air that was causing the aborts? Did you change anything else?

Yes i think not enough fresh air was the reason for the aborting pins. it seems that they only need in the early stage many fresh air. After this stage they look very robust.
