After a long time wait...

Psilocybe Stuntzii Unicorn T3 Mycobag culture.
- Multispore Culture, Spores from Blimey Grimey (Grimocin)
- Rye grain - Rye grass seed spawn mix (28days)
- Sterilized (2,5hrs.) Substrate mix: Conifer wood shavings (pet store) 60%, Straw 20%, Bark mulch 20% (62 days)
- Thin Casing layer: Pot Flower Soil, pasteurized
- Temperatures: Spawn 27-28 Degr. Celsius, Fruiting 15-16 Degr. Celsius
- Pins after 33days, Knots take 1 week to grow into primordia, Fruits take 2 weeks to mature.

Comments:
Very weak mycelium, but thicker than Semilanceata or Baeocystis. Isolate cultures are growing a bit more dense. Doing better on the final wood substrate, showing islands of white dots whithin the spawn.
Seems to build more hyp. knots than even Panaeoli. Primordia build up slowly from these knots. (within a week)
This culture isn't perfect, I am not totally satisfied. I think the fruits grow that small due to overly wet spawn. But they sporualte and leave very dark prints.

:bow: I'm now finding myself going from one of your threads to the next in search of the next great grow and pics. Excellent work CaptainFuture.
That is a massive flush. :eusa_clap:

I'm sure you have already answered this is another thread, but how are you regulating temps?
And again lol, have you had a chance to test any of this variety?

Yes, I do not trip on self grown mushrooms. I print them and then they are send to the mushrooms heaven via my compost pile.

I do not regulate temps. My vaulted cellar does it itself. Very cool to own a house which was built before WWII around 1920...

This is my lil' heaven:

Cool man, I too rarely consume my fruits. More fun to grow and print and learn now. The last several grows made nice kindlin' for the woodstove. :) ( lol Had pans put the fear into me and no longer have any urge to partake.) Still love the process and growing though.
I also have a older home with a very cool basement, I'm hoping to put that to use for some of the cooler fruiting varieties.

Again, nice work, and keep posting those beautiful results. :eusa_clap

After 3 mycobags got lost during summer due to a spreaded mold contamination of a lot of bags colonized by species with weaker mycelium, I have now a new mycobag fruiting continously with maturing fruitbodies every few days.
They do look like grassland stuntziis with annulus and the typical pellicule which is known to be one of Semilanceata's features.
They are really beautiful and since they are so close to Semilancestas I love them even more. The fruits are all sporulating well and give nice dark sporeprints. And the size of the fruitbodies is increased with the later flushes, too. The biggest one had a 5mm thick, 7cm long stem with a 3-4cm cap.
I was to busy taking pix but since there are two other bags just started pinning I will take more pix in the future.

I do have more nice prints for trade, just PM me, but don't expect free giveaways.

Stuntziis are bluing fast and strong but as usual I don't/didn't test them.

They are very, very beautiful little mushrooms and since they are fruiting easily I recommend them for growing though the mycelium isn't as fast and thick like f.e. Sempervivas of Caerulescens/Weilliis. Therefore it would be better if the grower is experienced with exotic species.
But their beauty is absolutely worth the work & wait!

Beautiful work, Captain Future!

I can't wait to get my Stuntzii growing. I didn't get further than agar culture yet. But this is great encouragement! :)

JUST DO IT!!!
They are not really difficult to grow. You have to keep things clean and wait till they're absolutely fully colonized. (substrate gets more white with time) And then you'll get fruits 2-3weeks after casing and around 10-18degr. celsius. LOTS of fruits. Even if there will be aborts, some of them will mature and they look so beautiful and are really sticky due to that pellicule on the wet caps.

Good luck again :)

I'm still deeply in love with those Stuntziis. And even more after the last flushes:

And the Semilanceata known pellicle which Stuntzii does have,too. I love that sticky thing and the olive green color of the caps.

Here are some more fruits! These cultures are fruiting since September now. And I was to lazy to take pictures of every (little) flush.
But yesterday I felt like doing some. Got two bags left, one is wood based (like the first culture in this thread):

2010.01.16 Stuntziis Holzsubstrat (2).JPG


And the other is the straw based bag which the later shown fruits came of- with the typical Grassland-Stuntzii look:

2010.01.16 Stuntziis (5).JPG

Here's a comparison of those:

2010.01.16 Stuntziis Vergleich Stroh+Holz (1).JPG

And Hispanicas and both Stuntziis compared:

Beautiful pictures, Captain!! :cacti:

Can I ask which substrate you prefer/recommend for them? I like the grassland look a bit better for some reason, but the Stuntziis seem to like the woodshavings most, or maybe that's just a random thing?
