still nothing. when i find my slides i'm going to take a gill sample and go in for a closer look. hopefully it's not a sterile isolate. i doubt it, but if so, i have at least 7 more isolates to choose from in storage.

i've seen first flushes do a lot of strange things in my days.. maybe the second will be better.

They're so gorgeous... like a high class lady's hat! I'd pay top $ for a hat like that!

You do great work, my friend. :bow:

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




pranksterhad success with both species and has taken some prints, but i haven't seen him around for some time. he also sent me those two species.
you could ask him if you manage to reach him

i'm trying villarrealiae atm but i have only one jar and it's slow


next week when i have more time again i'll start a new grow with P. vill. and P. caeru.

Yeah, where is Prankster? I worked up his caerulescens sample but its not a perfect match with that species.

Close enough I suppose.

i hope all is well :heart: i miss prankster.

here's a few more pics from tonight.

came home to a bit of a suprise.. SPORES! :dance:

unfortunately, the majority of them seem to be on top of the cap. there's quite a bit of air flow in the FC. even at 91% rh .. and after looking at the spores under the scope they are very small. about 1/3 to 1/2 the size of cubie spores. probably blowing all over the place, which explains the lack of accumulation on the stem. there was a little tonight however :D

i'm trying to print the two largest now. hopefully i'm not too late. if so, at least now i know what to expect.. and i'm toning down that tropicaire :lol: i won't miss them again :mistrust:

much :love:

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.



Great job Chosen one. I am glad you were able to get them growing,

a swab with q-tip on cap could salvage spores for agar ?

probably. i was able to scrape them off easily with a needle. an inoculation loop would probably work as well.
heh, the air pump was cranked all the way up. i'll have to watch that knob.

glad you could stop by MJ :)

thanks again everyone!
