Has anyone done it yet?

Because, I just heard from a foaf that he opened a tub of subaeruginosa that have been incubating at 22deg c for about 6 months.. and in a mix of cactus soil and coir, he has 2 little shrooms reaching to the sky.

How can this happen? Barely any light.. so warm.. im quite surprised. Surely, this would be a good sample to clone?

I'l buy him some new batteries for his camera, and get some evidence.

Currently working on an indoor project but the myc is only a couple of months old.
After seeing some proof, I would be interested to know your FOAF's substrate prep.

I had some azures spawn last year that was forgot about in the back of a closet. It was found around thanksgiving and had a fruit the size of a number 2 pencil, with the cap the size of the eraser on the pencil.

So it's not impossible to fruit in doors it's just unlikely.

I've never seen true invitro wood lovers, (in a glass jar or bag)
But this suprise Friscosa popped up in an enclosed tub.
It can definitely happen. :D

Now you see it. It works. Ps. azurescens fruiting in a plastic bottle.

The point is: IT WORKS! I hear again and again "...you can't grow woodlovers indoors" "...you can't grow woodlovers in jars, bags" and so on. It is just not true!

Excellent.

What surpirses me even more than 'invitro' fruiting, is that it was still incubating at over 20deg c.
No refridgeration, or placing outdoors.

I doubt the fruits will get very large though.

Ah yes, I have seen those photos. They're probably 10 years old now.
To me, it makes mores sense to let mother nature do the work.

I'l buy him some new batteries for his camera, and get some evidence.


Yeah some pics would be great!

Beautiful. Here is a report from Jochen Gartz. They have grown Psilocybe cyanescens in the lab on a rice cake!

Thanks for posting the links. Woodlovers are really fascinating. I predict a great future for the yet quite unknown Psilocybe subaeruginascens. I am working with it since a few months. It's the most aggressive woodlover I know. The following pics were shot within 3 days.

I hope they will fruit during fall. Some people say Psilocybe subaeruginascens doesn't need a temperature drop for fruiting. We will see.
