Woohoo! :amazed:



Serendipity.



Here's one more photo I took about a month ago of one of the tupperware containers I have cardboard in. I put in a chunk of an Aspen tree to see what would happen. A few days ago I added pasteurized Hickory chips. I'll take photos once things are established. I also have a few of the stem butts on cardboard to get them started. The mycelium is very aggressive.

The entire time the mushrooms were pinning/fruiting, they were inside on the office floor, not outdoors.


What was the relative air humidity at that place?

In my experience, Psilocybe cyanofriscosa is able
to fruit at relatively low relative air humidity.

nightflyer, I'm not sure about the humidity. I'm sure it was fairly low. I live in a low-humidity climate. I did mist the rocks and coconut husk a few times a day with water from the creek near my house. I use the same water on my Shiitake and Reishi mushroom blocks. They seem to like it.

One mushroom tried to come up in the original plant this year. I didn't notice until it was too late. Since nothing came up in that plant last year, I figured it was done. The soil was too dry. The pin stopped growing when it was very small and turned dark blue.

It's funny. I haven't taken any mushrooms, San Pedro, etc. for a long time, though I've been thinking about it. I've been waiting until it feels right again. You know? Since these mushrooms decided to show themselves to me, I guess the time has come. They know they'll be well taken care of.

Friscosa's are good fresh and they are good dry. If you ever get the chance i'd highly recommend approximately 2 to 3 grams fresh for a nice handleable trip. They dry quick so if you miss the chance , no problem.

I find the high to be very colorful and visual. Blessings on your Friscosa find.

Thanks, hyphenation. I've already dried them. I also have a few of this species from two years ago. They've been stored in a glass jar in a dark, cool place. I'm curious about potency loss over those years. I did eat a stem of one of the older mushrooms and got a nice sparkly feeling--definitely active. I can already tell the visuals will be out of this world! :loveeyes:

1 gram dry will be a nice experience. They hold their potency well.

Those are Psilocybe cyanofriscosa. This is the first time I have seen them fruiting from plants. The mycelium is very aggressive, you should be able to expand it out really far if you give it lots of wood and good conditions.

Thank you, Alan and fng.
I'm not sure why this species likes my houseplants. This species really seems to like it where I live. I don't know why it overcomes any competing species, but it does. I put spores in the potting soil and get these mushrooms. I don't use any pesticides or herbicides, but I do use Max-Sea fertilizer on my houseplants as well as fish emulsion. Whatever technique I'm using isn't good for yield, but perhaps I have a vigorous strain from all the neglect!

clone it...
and take spore prints...


share the strain...it deserves it..

sometimes a certain strain or trait is a once in a livetime finding...(like tampanensis!!)
