A few photos of Psilocybe galindoi var. Georgia fruiting. Several different trays are depicted in the following photos.

Sample from _OttO_. Grown out on agar, agar wedges transferred either directly to grains (either WBS or rye), or to LC which was subsequently used to inoculate grain.

Some photos of sclerotia forming invitro.

The first 2 trays I made up were straight cased rye grain. No sclerotia had formed at this point. The third tray I spawned to my regular composted horse manure and coir mix.

The first and second trays ended up being a sterile. All fruits produced did not sporulate. At first I thought this was due to environemental factors, but when the other trays started fruiting and dropping spores in the same conditions I decided otherwise.

The third tray. Note the sclerotia forming in the casing layer.

The final tray was straight cased WBS grain, but this already had sclerotia forming in it. It has just started fruiting.

The first tray had finished fruiting, so I tossed it out yesterday. Before doing so though, I went through the substrate for sclerotia. All of these formed during fruiting as there were none when I took them out of the jar. Not a bad unintentional harvest, albeit one consisting of tiny sclerotia.

Enjoy!

I regret having two different names between two sites, a single username would be far easier.

I didn't grow them outside, I grew them indoors. I just prefer the background of outdoor photos, so took the trays outdoors for photographing.;)

Here's an update:

The fourth tray had most of its fruits mature the other day. Again, they were mostly sterile. Not sure what's going on with that. Only one dropped spores. Next time I fruit these, I'll be using an isolate taken from one of the better mushrooms from these trays.

Interestingly, the sterile mushrooms grow larger overall, with greater height and thicker stems than mushrooms which produce spores. The mushroom on the right in the first pic was the only one that printed.

Once again, notice the sporeless gills.

Photos from the second tray. Fortunately, none of them are sterile.

This species is amazingly hardy. Performance isn't effected by direct misting or strong vibrations (although the fruits do fall over easily) and it seems very contaminant resistant too.

Here's another couple of pics from tonight:

The lovers kiss, while others look on.:lol:
The one on the left reminds me of those mutants cactu finds, crossed with a P. semilanceata.

Final update.

Couple of pics of the last flush:



Sclerotia harvest from the two trays. All of these formed during fruiting:


The largest one weighed 33g wet.

...and here ends this log, thanks for looking!

Simply beautiful. I'd love to hear about how you rate the potency of both the fruits and the sclerotia. I'm yet to see solid figures/personal experience comparisons to cubensis spp.

Holy shit storm Psylence!!! How did I miss this thread before??? I gues I must have been hanging in the wild mushrooming section too long.

Those are incredible mushrooms. And the Sclerotia is huge! So I need to go do some research on this bad boy. Is it new??? On my way over to sporeworks..

Peace

The wild mushrooming section ain't a bad place to be.;)

No, it's not new, it's been available for some time now.

Boarders, I've not eaten the mushrooms, nor the sclerotia yet. Once I do though, I'll try to keep it in mind to compare the two and report back. I've heard from other people that they are similar in potency.
