it's taken some time to get to this point. the pins develope from knots that come through the casing. they also are slow to develop.

Very beautiful fruits. I have grown those before, pretty slow to colonize and fruit. But they are extremely powerful in mojo, comparable to woodlovers.

Awesome as always, buddy. Let us know how those work out for you potency wise. Jammer has told me they were better than pans. So enjoy!!!

Hey Whitethumb :thumbs_up2: 

 

What is your tek for working with these?

 

I have an ancient print in my collection,  and have recently considered attempting it once I've moved.

I recall it being rather slow to fruit.  Not too sure about colonization times (it's been several years and brain cells ago). 

 

As far as potency, I would rate Semperviva right up there with the strongest.  I never did more than 1.5 grams dry, and I would recommend about 1 gram dry.  I found the high to be more like a really clean mescaline or acid trip, very profound and ruminative.

 

I had a very old print that I got from the_chosen_one (TCO) many years ago.  I tried to revive it on agar and grain, and it was a dud.  I probably should have used activated charcoal, as the print was 8-9 years old, I believe.  Ah, well.

 

If you want to see some really nice crops of Viva, check out Captain Future's and TCO's grows of it.

 

Teo, I can tell you what TCO told me to do.  It's not a dung lover, so if you do want to use dung in your mix, do so sparingly.  You could go with straw or potting soil, or coir/vermiculite with maybe 15% dung.  I believe I used a coir/vermiculite substrate with a coir casing.  It definitely needs a casing layer, but fruiting parameters are about like cubensis.  It will colonize any grain or even brf cakes.  I recall it being a little slow to fruit, but it was pretty easy to work with.

 

I am honestly surprised that I do not see more grow logs of this species.  It's very cool.

I wouldn't say better, just different and stronger.  Every strain or species has its own character, I think.

Hey Whitethumb 2:

I have an ancient print in my collection, and have recently considered attempting it once I've moved.


i am using 50% coir and 50% humus manure mix as sub. i believe the bag said it was about 20% manure. i spawned my colonized rye berries to pasteurized substrate. then cased. i am fruiting in a mono type bucket that i have built myself.

that's awesome to know!!! the prints i have originally came from the chosen one via captain future.

i have 2 tubs fruiting now, one isn't anything impressive. it's mainly fruiting from side pins.

It's a small world, huh?  I didn't have the best pinsets either, as I remember, but I bet yours come out pretty nice.

 

Your substrate mix sounds perfect from what I know about the species.  Could you post a pic of the bucket?  I love the bucket grows.

Dude, that's absolutely badass. And as far as doing the species justice, you've already done that.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Im really glad to see peeps working with the exotics. 

 

They seemed a lot more prevalent years ago.

 

Do you plan on making any prints?
