Psilocybe Caerulescens Mycobag
Posted 31 May 2009 - 02:26 PM
- Multispore Culture, Spores from Prankster239
- Rye grain spawn (10days)
- Sterilized (2,5hrs.) Substrate mix: Straw 70%, Horse manure 15%, Grass Seed (div. called 'Spiel & Sportrasen') 15% (8 days)
- Thin Casing layer: Pot Flower Soil, pasteurized
- Temperatures: Spawn 27-28 Degr. Celsius, Fruiting 23-24 Degr. Celsius
- Pins after 35days
The Caerulescens grows in my experience very similar to the Semperviva. Fast and dense grow but slow to pin. Only the growth of fruitbodies is 3times faster and takes around 8-9 days. They seem to like it wet, I lost lots of pins before I started to keep it more moist. The mycelium was running very fast through the casing soil and broke through the surface, I had to scratch it, to keep it open for watering.
There are lots of pins but only very few are growing, so I think overall moisture of the culture is to low. A second culture is pinning, but there is not a single fruit growing bigger. All in all I am not satisfied but in these days of trouble where I see a lot of cultures not doing well, I have at least to be thankful for what I got here.
The fruits do sporulate well, I took few clean prints.
