Higher potency theory.
    #1137487 - 12/13/02 06:17 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

When your fruits are about midway through the fruiting stage.
Is it possible to drop the temp and slow the maturing proccess but, still get wicked philocybin production to the fruits.

Ummm you know what I mean.

it seems possible, if you could slow growth during the poeiod fo highest psilo production without stressing them, then you might get more potent fruits, but it seems like you would get less friuts if they are using up nutrients more. no idea if it would work in practice though.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

i think if you lower the temp your fruits are going to just grow alot slower, try it and find out for yourself tho. i see that when trays only make a few fruit they are usually larger and more potent than if it makes many.

Yeah, I cannot see a good reason why cool temps would increase potency, cool temps would slow down all the metabolic processes. However here is another theory. Plants are known to increase the production of anti-predation compounds when they are nibbled on or molested. I have read that some researchers (and laymen) think that psylocybin and the like originally served anti-herbivory purposes so maybe, just maybe, simulating predation on your mushrooms will cause an increase in potnecy. Its a stretch, I know.

What you have to find out is what makes the mushroom produce psilocybin. Perhaps its so they would not get eaten for instance. You could then stress them and they would produce it. Then you would harvest more potent shrooms.It would be hard. Why not grow a more potent species?

AHAHAHhahahaHAHahahahahahahaha, that's a funny pic

But for the orig post, get a food for the mycelium that's high in TRYPOPHAN, b/c tryptophan is a chemical associated with the growth of seratonin in your brain, if this were a food to the mycel then maybe they might be more potent. I'm trying this out with finch seed, b/c finch seed has the highest tryptophan levels. If you know a chemist, you could try getting em to synthesis verm with super high levels of trypotphan. Or you could just eat a shitload of shrooms.

Still Crackin,

Slower growing mushroom tend to contain less water and more dry matter. So spekaing for fresh mushrooms they would be more potent by weight. When they are dried it doesn't matter.

Lowering the temperature drastically during the fruiting phase may cause mushrooms to abort so be careful with it. Better to get a good flush at a constant temperature then a poor flush that might be a little more potent.
