I was pokin' around and saw this.

Have any luck getting them to fruit?

This is the method I am using for my Psilocybe cyanescens. It makes sense to me after all the reading. I have jelly jars with sugar maple sawdust and wheat bran with a vermiculite layer on top. I innoculated them 11days ago or so, and so far I can't see a thing growing, good or bad. I see very fine flakes of mycellium in the honey water but they sure grow slowly. I also tried one jar on shredded cardboard but can't see anything there either. The mycellium is so fine at this point it could be there and I just can't see it. I believe it takes about six weeks or more before the jars are colonized, but I can't remember for sure. I know it's a long time.

I am going to make my central air chiller that I posted about a while back. I am going to take a soft hose and attach it to the drain coming out of the plenum for the furnace where the air conditioner condensation drains. I alrady save this water for my orchids as it is pure distilled water. I am going to wrap the hose round and round a plastic tote and then continue to the drain hole in the floor. The water coming out of the hose is ice cold and it will chill the tote. I am also thinking about getting a small bar fridge just for the mushrooms. I will wait for this until I can see them growing well. I originally bought them to grow outside in my garden here in Toronto but I have decided to accomodate them here in the house as well. If I had to put them in the fridge every night and take them out every morning, I would do it. Whatever it takes.

I have had good luck growing azures partly indoors. I started the spores on dog food agar and inoculated bird seed with mycelium from the agar. The bird seed colonized in two to three weeks. Then I spawned presoaked wood chips with the colonized grain and put the mixture in a styrofoam box. The box had several layers of moist cardboard on the bottom and the wood chips were about three inches deep. The bed was covered with another layer of cardboard and the box had a tight fitting styrofoam lid. The box was incubated 'indoors' but in an outdoor shed where temperatures were often extreme. The temperatures inside the box were between 80 and 90 degrees F. (probably too hot) but the growth looked good and was thick and extermely rhizomorphic. The box was well colonized in about a month, even the cardboard cover was colonized, so I put the box outside in a shady area and opened the lid only at night to expose it to the cool night air. The first fruiting was in August even though the lowest temperature was 68 degrees. In my experience, a 50 degree cold shock is not necessary. After the first harvest, a dog tore the box to shreds.

That's great news Silo. I'm innoculating Tapalpa today into bird seed. I'll make one jar into Psilocybe cyanescens on seeds. I am willing to try anything to get this going. My basement floor is 62f even on the hottest summer day because of the air conditioner and much colder in the winter I may not have to do anything much to get them to fruit. Perhaps only carry them from the second floor to the basement.
