I am working hard on that species.
I created a big patch in March 2009.

The substrate is fully colonized and the mycelium
looks very healthy. I hope it will fruit this spring,
maybe during May or early June.

It would be great to have such a potent woodlover
Psilocybe, fruiting out of the normal season. :)

Did anyone tried to fruit them indoors, too?
I've had 3 fine mycobags colonized from Workmans spores last year but placed them down in the cellar, because I forgot that they are warm fruiters. (I'Ve had so many species growing, I totally forgot about them being 'tropical Azures')
I've tossed the bags out after half a year and now fruits...
So I'll start them again next week and see if they'll fruit indoors in my 'tropical' growing room...

I didn't grew your sample out, Nightflyer, because I have cultures & spores left. Mine are from Workman as mentioned, so 100% Subaeruginascens.

CU,
Cap

I don't know if you can really call them warm fruiters or even
"tropical Azures". They fruit between 60 F and 75 F.

The patch I created in March 2009 was already colonized
by the end of July 2009 but did not fruit during fall 2009.

Maybe they need the winter coldness and a slow rise
of temperatures in spring to fruit; like Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata.

My Psilocybe subaeruginascens cultures originate from a
Sporeworks print. Unfortunately out of stock at the moment.

Ok, waylitjim wrote 'subtropical azurescens' :)

I'll try them anyway, maybe I'll have success.
Those Ovos are 'warm fruiters' as well, didn'tr know that, too. I placed two Ovo bags in the cellar, too. Shit, I really need to read more about those woodlovers. (as I told you, got a lot to learn about them. Currently working on spore generated Bohemicas, which are really rare to get)

Good luck Captain.

Looking forward to seeing those dark caps.

I had this species going on popcorn , but at a time when I had a lot of other stuff going on. I swear it I wrote "RA" on the jars and then promptly forgot what it stood for ...

It never made it to woodchips unfortunately due to some kind of neglect. Looking back I would have given it the golden treatment had I realized RA was Ringed Azure.

Ever have enough on the go that you forget what the initials mean that you've given a jar ?

No, cause I'd always write the first few letters of the latin or common name.
With Subaeroginascens I wrote Ginas, cause I've got Subaeroginosa (Ginosa) growing, too :)

But I must be careful in labeling my Semilanceata Clones. I've got now 3 of them, incl. the one from the fruited Multispore bag :)

:lol: I did manage to get them going, just hadn't realized until checking my old "contamed" plates.:lol:

Tub culture is in the bin in favour of the nice rhizo growth I now have.:)
