I grew mycobags with many different woodlovers early this year, but after few months none of them fruited. So instead of just tossing them out, I put some of them in big flower pots (12ltr) with pure shredded conifer bark (called Rindenmulch in germany).
I layered the crumbled mycobags with the bark in the pots, one species per pot. One Bohemica, one Subaeroginascens (or Frsicosa), one Meravica, one Weraroa and a huge pot with two bags of Azurescens.
After 2 months all pots were colonized, so I added some more bark on top and left that again.

One of them fruited, as you might have seen, it was the Weraroa.


Fruiting Temps are 10-12 Degrees Celsius, they are indoor in my vaulted cellar.


So another ones fruits now. Well, I'm not sure what it is, but I'm not sure what exactley I buried :)


But it looks like Cyanofriscosa I'd say.

Here we go, pix from 10.28.2014:

They are covered with huge plastic boxes, which I remove for the pix.

I appreciate the reply. I've got a couple shoe boxes that are getting ready to retire to a cold part of the house. Any holes for fae? Filtered or not? Those look to be oozing with goodness!

First fruits are opening the caps. They look amazing, but def. not like Azures. My guess with Cyanofriscosa seems to be valid, what do the experts think?

Here are some Friscosas I had last year in the garden:

Looks like friscosa to me! Certainly not azures. Beautiful.

Definitely not azurecences ... Does look allenii (friscosa) a fair bit, however there are things that look different from what i know of allenii. For starters , at least in outdoor-grown beds there are fine lines on the fully mature caps. Also there is usually bluing at the edges of the cap.

 

post-10514-138187640564_thumb.jpg colour of cap is white because of pinning in a cold weather

 

 

post-10514-138187640087_thumb.jpg cap is orange from pinning in warmer weather (same bed)

 

Here's Waylitjim's allensi grown in a greenhouse:  post-4254-138185156648_thumb.jpg

 

One thing to check for is a brownish spore print (first pic).

 

It could be that indoor fruits don't get the radiant lines that outdoor grown specimens do. Not sure, but those almost look more like Psilocybe subaeruginosa.

Yes, I guess you're right, it really seems more like Subaeruginosa. Will change the thread I guess

I will edit the title to reflect the species, if you'd like to change it to subaeruginosa.

Maybe keep it as is until we get a confirmation , allenii is the most likely fit at the moment it seems. Or just add a question mark after name in title?

 

Could you possibly check a spore print for colour check?

Not yet, will do prints soon.
I check many pix , on google and it looks more like Subaeruginosa. The bluing on the stem seems something more common with Azures and Ginosa, too, since they are so potent. The white margin on the cap also is typical for Ginosa. Actually even the outdoor Friscosa I had look different :-)
The overall look of the cap seems to fit Ginosa morw likely. I am almost sure the cap will look even more different than Friscosa when fully matured.

I changed the thread title on shroomery, so I'd say you can do that here, too.

I wrote in my first post Subaeruginascens, but meant Subaeruginosa, and overall I'm not shure if I had a Friscosa bag at all when I spawned. So sorry for the confusion.

They do look different than Allenii. I guess a potency test might help.

More pix from today,

 

Prints were very light but more purple than brown.

Still not sure which species they are. I could bite my ass for that. 

But anyway, lovely fruits.

Will do more woodlover grows with that method.
