I managed to get a jar of Bethany Ovid to survive. In the process I lost several jars to contams. This last jar is popcorn mixed with birch shavings. Now its 100 % colonized and I want to get it going in a bed outside.

I'm glad I re-read this thread as I was not aware that ovid was a spring fruiter or that it liked it a bit warmer than P. cyans.

Do you make a bed mix for your ovids the same as p. cyans ? Would a mixture of mostly hardwood chips plus straw and potting soil work okay ?

Thanks a bunch

Damn, I have some spawn of this leftover from an indoor failure. Backup. I wonder if I should spawn some hardwood dust in hopes it fruits outside in the next few weeks?

Nice thread Golly! Good to see your patch is still alive and kicking. I hope you get similar results to last year! Laz, do you think it would actually fruit this year? A long shot, prolly, but it never hurts to try!

Yeah Hyph , i think bed preparation is the same as for Cyan/Azure culture ..Just a more continental climate is prefered [warm summer cold winter]...
Proly is a bit late now Laz but it's
never too late to start a patch even if you do miss this seasons flush...One advantage to growing Ovoids is their ability to survive Summer heat that'll kill off Cyans..

So far it's been a very cool spring in the Mid Atlantic, so i think the 3rd week of April should show some
pinning sighns hopefully ...thanx BC...

Hey bobcat! Thought you got hit by a car or something. :lol:

I don't know, I guess I could try it. Maybe i'll attempt another indoor grow with it. All I have is one jar of spawn. So i'd have to g2g for some more in order to have sufficient spawn for a speedy colonization outside. Maybe i'll do both. Who knows.

First sighns of life...:headbang: in the original patch...
Both plots were lightly cased with potting soil/coir mix 10 days ago..
Had a good rainstorm yesterday..Temps have been 50s-60s

I accidentally ripped a couple of caps off when i lifted the mesh cover..:eusa_booh..

Nothing yet in the patch created from last seasons stembutts -it's early yet though..
First flush grows much more slowly than the second, due to cooler temps..

Any hoo, this made my day :rasta:

That is looking promising Golly! Can't wait to watch them go for a second season!

I love how much these physically change through the fruiting cycle, very neat-o shroomies!

Thanx guys..Last years crop was dried,powdered and sealed in honey...Potency has remained very good since..
These Ovoids are about twice as potent as cubes by weight ,close to Pan Cyan but a bit different in visual effect - Smooth ride though..

Last summer , more chips were layered on after the final flush..Then a potting soil layer was added...
Over time the p. soil works it's way down thru the chips, so more had to be added early this spring...
It's partly to fill the gaps and partly for retaining moisture...

After a few days, mine's colonizing. Especially after those few days of nice weather I had. I'm hoping mine fruits this spring, but your's doing so now doesn't look good for me.
