question for Workman - these seem as if they will be a light spore depositor..
will i be able to see them on the stem etc. when they begin to drop? any hints?
thanks again everyone!!!
much love!
:heart:


Spore depositing is variable and over a long span of time. You can definately get darker prints than you might expect. You should see spores depositing on the stem before you attempt to print. You should notice the gills slowly darkening as the spores get riper. If you catch it at the right time, you will get a dark print. But the first flush may not print as well as later flushes. Good luck!

This strain is very forgiving if given enough time. Very contaminate resistant and fruits in less than ideal growing conditions. But it is damn slow.

I don't think this species is actually endangered in the wild, just not commonly collected for research.

Great job, TCO! It doesn't look like you've been able to sample them yet, but any word on potency? Comparable to pans at all?

thanks Workman! i figured as much. the prints you sent me were pretty nice. :heart: ....

and contamn resistant they are! the invitro fruits in the cluster are fruiting right on the edge of the mold contamination. lol, flippin' it the bird.
too bad though.. i'd love to clone from that cluster. maybe i'll try anyways. semper seems pretty defiant.. perhaps some hot agar pours etc :eusa_thin

Merm - tonight :D

Bev - not yet. hoping to find out soon though :D i bet they are quite good!

check out the bruising on the large invitro pin that is alone. it's as green irl as it looks in the pic. they don't bruise very heavily once harvested either.. they are very tough and dense.

ok, more to come!

much love!:heart:

Hmmm fruiting right on the edge of the mold contamination seems familiar somehow.

any theories as to what would cause this? gases from the mold? simply running out of good substrate?

i would have never figured semper to be an invitro fruiter. although, i should have guessed when the first jar to produce side pinned and dug downwards. there were also a few pins forming further down, but i didn't consider these invitro because it was a cased jar.

Nice job TCO. That tray could potentially kick out mushrooms for 6 months at approximately 1 flush every 4-6 weeks.


I think you could be ready for some other species in the same Section Cordisporae. They all seem to grow under the same conditions and are slow to mature. You shouldn't have any trouble growing.

Psilocybe villarrealiae
P. caerulescens
P. weilii

thank you Workman :bow: that's quite a compliment! :heart: what about Zap's.. similar? i've talking trade with cactu and i'd love to try them too!

and where does one get these? Psilocybe villarrealiae, P. caerulescens.

lol, you've created a monster! :D

ok the update!!!

no spores yet :( and it looks like the large one is getting near the end. it's still pretty firm, but it has begun to darken today. the smaller pins are getting larger and it turns out there is three clustered! maybe i'll be cloning this instead of the invitro cluster.. which btw is still growing just fine.

as for the size of these, the second largest is equal in height to a bic lighter. i'd get one in the pic, but i don't want to risk anything falling on them :love:

thanks again everyone! :heart: more to come!

a few more pics.

the medium sized fruit actually turned out to be the largest so far.

i harvested the first large one. even though it looks pretty ragged, it's still in good shape. i mean it's not going to melt or anything. it's actually quite heavy.
maybe i'll get a weight on the next large one.. but i think i may let it grow for a while longer.

still no spores :(

:heart:
