Dude, these are awesome pics!! :bow:
I love the sclerotia species, and there isn't alot of info on them, so thanks!:bow:
I'd be really interested to hear your report on noticable differences, such as amount of stones per jar avg. per species. Also do you find colonozation times or fruiting requirements to be any different?
They're my passion.
First of all, let me state that I've found the absolute best substrate
for stone production to be coffe soaked rye berries.
Colonization and fruiting temperature requirements are about the
same - they'll do great in room temperature.
As far as species related info, I' will gather all my info and post it
in a few days.
Just to sum it up...
Best stone producer - P. mexicana
Unfortunately this is very difficult to fruit.
Easy to fruit and 2nd best stone producer - P. galindoi
Fairly easy to fruit and average stone producer - P. tampanensis
Fairly easy to fruit and poor stone production - P. mexicana
Here's a guide I wrote about substrates/inoculation/fruiting/printing
on sclerotia forming species:
