First: There is NO Weillii Strain !!!
But the fruits look a bit like Weillii...

This 4yr old culture (stored on a petri dish in the fridge) does grow and forms really big sclerotia, but fail to fruit 'normally'. If fruits mature they look like the above. The culture is now 3months old, still clean and still fruiting. Substrate is grass seed. ('Spiel & Sport Rasen' ;))

I try to get spores but they only drop few each time and the spores won't germinate.

You mean the culture?
I've got these abnormal fruiting on 4 different trays. (2 of them w/ straw & grass seeds)

In my opinion they are suffering from the long storing, some kind of degeneration. My Nameko, Azures, Cyans, Shiitake and Pleurotus didn't fruit at all after this long period- but all of them were growing vegetatively well.
The only two cultures which survived the storage are the Reishi and the Psilocybe Samuiensis. (Workman still has to confirm their identity)

I love the way those mushrooms look, even if there is a problem. I wonder if cloning one would save the defect. I've seen mutants cloned before that did. I don't know if it was a genetic defect however. Great pics!

No, cloning won't do anything. This is a pure strain. I gre it on a few different substrates and everytime got the same result.
These fruit showed up after 14/15 weeks. The first fruits weren't so thick, just small malformed ones.
They have a really strange look, very psychedelic.

And look at how potent they are:

And some more Sklerotia from within the substrate (the others came from the casing layer):








Substrate was 400ml grass seed.

well they are pretty cool looking man

the cap margins do have that bottle cap type look to them like we have seen in the cultivation of Weil's Psilocybe.

i have searched endlessly for P. tampanensis near the same regions it was discovered. it pretty much elludes me and maybe every other shroomer that might keep an eye for them. the sandy bank habitat that is described just does not sound complete to me, there must have been more then just a sandy bank... so i do not spend all too much time persuing it anymore and can only hope that myself or someone else can find it again in the wild.

i am putting forth a honest effort this year, my last summer of really looking for them here, i have a feeling i have this one in me by now... talking about Psilocybe mammillata.
