Forced fruiting experiment for P. Ovoids...
Posted 04 October 2008 - 12:24 PM
Tray has been sitting under a tree for about 10 days and now showing signs of life
around the edges -pin dance..:dance:
They're a bit tiny right now but will get a pic in a day or two..
Temps have been 50-70F which is close to their normal springtime fruiting temp..

So what would be the procedure with azure/cyan..? I guess u would bring them inside after fruiting ,so they can continue to Colo at room temp, then set them out in early spring to fruit b4 temps warm too much...
Now would be a good time to start a cyan tray which could be ready to go outside by March...Hmmm -mebbe i try dat...

Squirrels have been messing with 'em..:nunchuck:
Gonna need a lot more pinnage to call this a success but it's interesting non the less...

Aren't the squirrels affected from the Psilocybin ?

Turns out ,there is a lot of side pinning as some light is penetrating the tub walls..
So i flipped it out to harvest and will let it remain as a cake for any further fruiting..There were some really dense masses ,although not too pretty..
At this point , i think the test was worthwhile,especially since new pins are still forming..We def fooled 'em into flushing out of season...
So the plan now ,is to wait for another flush ,then let the myc recover for a month at room temp..
After that ,i'll set the tray out for their natural winter chill , so they can fruit again in April..

Great job BTW.

it out as a cake to begin fruiting next time and have the tray cover it loosely, to hold moisture..Mebbe elevate a half inch for air flow around the cake...

Thanks Golly. This gives me great optimism for my efforts. ;)

I was concerned that there wouldn't be any fruit but they are just running a bit late..
The tub had been left open outdoors and wouldn't fruit till i stuffed a crumpled garbage bag inside , to hold humidity at the surface..
Within 4 days , it showed signs of pinning and none from the sides this time..
It's tough to say whether the forced fruiting last fall , caused a reduction in spring fruit..
