Psilocybe Azurescens 2009 -- They're Finally Here !
Posted 25 October 2009 - 08:05 PM
The second bed wasn't far away so I went to check it to. This bed is made from an Azure spores I got of Waylitjim eons ago. Thanks a million again by the way for that ! :bow:
As I scanned the bed I noticed the first pin ! There is was , and then another. I was giddy with excitement as I shifted the leaves around looking for more signs of life.
Unfortunately I have no camera until tomorrow but rest assured i'll be taking lots of pictures. It feels like such an amazing honor to have this species coming up at the same time as the P. Cyans and the Friscosa's. They make a formidable team !
I'll post some nice pics tomorrow.
Blessings on the Azures & thanks again to Waylitjim.

have been finding lots of cyans around the property though. it seems my old beds have naturalized. been finding them a long ways away from the original beds.

Under the Cyans plastic it looks great. Lots of half pins have turned to mature fruits. I had to give the plastic over it a re-adjustment because it was sagging.
I covered the Azure beds just in case they freeze solid or get a couple inches of snow on them.

I just gotta fess up. Thats a joke pic. Its a stinkhorn not an Azure. I don't have my camera atm. Couldn't resist playing a trick.
Temps are 1 C and going down to -4 tonight.

I learned everything I know from right here at Mycotopia.

Everything is battened down and where possible pooling of rain is avoided. Things look quite good under the plastic in all the beds. The Azures may not need a greenhouse but for all I know there may be three inches of snow tonight.
Without further ado here's some pics of the first Azures to come up. Again i'd like to give a heart-felt high five and thank you to Waylitjim for guidance and jedi tools.
This is the first time i've ever seen this species in person.

Cute lil Azure pins
Woodlovers like to catch rain
This is what I found when I moved back some leaves.
Fresh and alive
