Definitely enjoy it and make it your own! There´s a real and authentic potential for growth and development with these little guys. It has kind of been nice to talk about it a little more in this forum; I live a more or less ´straight-´normal sort of lifestyle, and rarely if ever talk about any of this with anyone. It seems like there is some authentic interest out there, and I strongly believe the mushrooms can provide an honest route to health and well-being. My greatest hope for this is that one day it will be recognized for the genuine ´religious/mystical-´type of experience it truly can be; and that it will be honored, respected and legitimized as a true and civil right.

I used to partake of the fruit when doing my late night tai chi practice and always felt more in touch with the elders or grandmasters. IN fact I felt as though I could feel their presence coursing through me when practicing. Especially out on Scripps pier.

So as someone else asked before and I will ask again. How can we acquire a spore print? Are we worthy?

as time progresses, im sure peeps will have some spores.
as with all strains, there is a "zen of circulation".

no one has published a complete grow tek for this strain yet.
yet, being the key...........

and, ultimately, the canopys of the future,
depend on the little gods, and their whim.

this strain looks amazing.if everything said about it is true, i would love to get my hands on it one day. i'd also like to say that i really enjoyed reading your posts concerning the relationship between the divine mushroom and mazatec, Teonanacatl.I knew they were apart of life for most peoples native to that part of the americas but i did not realize the extent of their significance for the mazatec in general.i would like to have a relationship with the mushroom like that myself. i also really dig your name. nahuatl is a beautiful language

2nd flush, 190grams wet weight; the wet weight:dry weight ratio differs from cubensis in that mexicana appears to favor dry weight ...

Can you elaborate what you mean by it prefers the dry weight?

The ratio is not 1:10 dry:wet weight, so you cannot say that 190 wet grams will equal 19 dry grams. The ratio is greater than 1:10, so that 190 wet weight grams may weigh more like 30-40 DRY grams.

Yea, MS without much sectioning ... like I said, my best results with mexicana have been with MS ... but more experimentation is perhaps in order.

interesting.........

were definitely dong an agar work up on them.
so far, they respond well to fert agar.
unable to get clear pics though yet,
due to agar haze on that particular bottle set.

im wondering, in the wild,
if these things are associated with a season, or particular conditions?

The mushroom season in Huautla de Jimenez really starts around May, and is almost 100% and entirely contingent on rainfall in that period. The mexicana specifically grew amongst grass along a sun exposed path off the northeastern face of a ridge that juts out from the peak just north of the cerro de adoracion. The path itself snakes around the ridge from the southernmost side, which was primarily oak forest. As you emerge along the eastern tip of the ridge, a sheer, grassy and exposed opening would offer up the ocassional pajarito/mexicana in the clay soils. Following the path further around along it´s northern face, the forest became primarily coniferous with large and old pine trees. On this side of the ridge, I found specimens of what the Mazatec call nii´kii´shro, ´the little ones that speak' or Psilocybe zapotecorum.

May is actually a warm month in Huautla with temperatures ranging from a low of 65F at night to a high of 95F in the day, and the pajaritos/p. mexicana seem to be ubiquitous throughout the rainy season though they are particularly prevalent early on in the season. In terms of home cultivation, high humidity and high gas exchange are what they need. So I string a simple airstone on an airpump through a layer of moistened perlite; this seems ideal.

These sclerotia were cased together with the fruiting subtrate in the photos I have posted in this thread:

stones.jpg

The sclerotia on the left was about 3 inches in diameter and an inch thick, quite a hunk.
