I grew them out about 7 years ago, but I was much less experienced and did a far worse job.  I still managed to get one small flush from a smallish tub, and I tripped on them a couple times.  The first was about 1 dry gram, and I recall it being similar to mescaline.  The second time I ate 1.5 dry grams, and I am glad I was sitting at home, lol.  It was pretty intense, as I recall.  This was all many brain cells ago, so there is some fogginess to the memories.

 

I am going to dose about 1.5 dry grams this weekend, and I will try offer up some kind of trip report here.

 

I do know Whitethumb has some recent experiences with ingesting the Viva, so hopefully he will chime in.

 

I found them to be an overall simply wonderful experience, very strong, profound, and smooth.  It is certainly one of my favorite species at this point.  But there are so many, lol.

Hey, I think those are boobs, A.  I will post a pic a little later.

 

She's a D-cup, I think, lol.

 

I have some cool fruiting going on from the remainder of the first flush.  These guys fruit crazy slow.  

 

Pics coming soon.

Here are some shots of the last part of the first flush from my two invitro bags.

 

Bag 1 from the front:

Bag 2 was the one that grew eyes/boobs, lol:

I also took a small dose of fruits last night, between 1 and 1.5 dry grams, extracted into a tea.  It was pretty awesome, smooth, mellow, euphoric, with a few bouts of uncontrollable laughter, plenty of OEVs and CEVs.  There was never any sense of paranoia or panic.  There's a really profound quality to these babies.  I recommend them to everyone for sure.

Those are some beautiful fruits!

I'm glad to hear the experience went well. Thanks for sharing your report with them. Those shaman pouches sure do produce a nice bounty.

That was just the last part of the first flush.  I figure the second flush should be decent, but we shall see.

 

Thanks for the good words.

All right.  As promised, I have pics of the second flushes from these two bags.  I have to say I am amazed at how easy these are to grow.  I lazily only misted the casings maybe a couple times during the flush.  So the species seems to really love invitro conditions, even more than I thought it would.

 

Anyway, here we go.

 

Bag 1 from the front:

Bag 1 from the top (I got a bunch of prints from this one--nice spore-droppers):

Bag 2 from the front:

 

20170408_041010.jpg

 

Bag 2 from the top (you can see spores on some of the caps):

 

20170408_041159.jpg

 

I currently have both bags dunking for a few hours.  I am going to patch the casings and go for a third flush.  Both bags look and smell healthy.

 

Thanks for checking out the Viva.  Don't hesitate to grow this species; you will not be disappointed.   :biggrin:

Me too, Jammer.

Whitethumb,
I hope you don't mind me joining this thread as well. I finally got a chance to streak those spores last week and as such, my journey begins. All 4 plates have now germinated so we are off and running!

The first plate to germinate:

If it's ok, I will update in this thread?

Only a small update. Just made my 3rd transfer on agar yesterday. So as soon as these bad boys grow out a bit, one will go to either grain or some cake material in a pp5 while I let the others pin. I saw you had some luck with them pinning on agar, so I decided to give um a go and try and get a pin or two to clone and test.

I am in the middle of a third flush.  The fruiting is more sparse, but things look healthy.  I will throw up some pics when I am ready to harvest.  This grow has been a great success for me.  I have harvested well over a dry ounce from these two little bags so far, got enough spore prints to last the rest of my life, and have greatly enjoyed tripping on this species a couple times now.  I still need to do a heroic dose, but all good things in all good time.

 

You are the man, WT!

 

Good luck, PF.

Here are a couple pics of the one of the Viva invitro bags on a third flush.  The fruiting was a bit sparser, but the sub looked healthy.  I did decide to retire these two bags to make room for other stuff, but I am sure I could have gotten another flush or two out of them.

 

It's a great species and very easy to grow.  If you can grow cubes, you can certainly grow these.

 

Thanks, WT, for allowing me to contribute.
