a friend is trying to grow some philosiphers stones :smile:, and most teks need "perenial rye grass seed". his question is were do you get it in the UK, or can he use millet to grow Psilocybe mexicana (A) or Psilocybe tampanensis? Can one use regular grass seed (a touch expensive ?5.00/kg ! )?  :frown:

i went to fresh and wild today - they have 500g bags of 'organic rye grain' for about ?2. you can get organic millet, quinoa, brown rice etc etc there too!

for rye grass seed try a garden centre.

You can get rye grass seeds in big garden centers
and most big pet shops.Also try health food stores.
but garden centers are your best bet(ask because there full of x-mas shit so they may not be on show)As a gardener i can get it about ?15 per 25kg
Good luck m8 Grow U.K :smile:  :smile:  :smile:      :smile:              :smile:

You can use just rye berries if you want. I believe that the grass seed works better though.

I believe that if you use millet to grow, you won't form much sclortia. You want the rye grass seed. Millet would work as a spawn if you were to fruit, but the A strain doesn't fruit well. Apparently stones will form in a casing layer if fruited, though much less than if using rye grass seed.

This place sells fresh Mexicana stones! Since it isn't technically a mushroom they can be sold fresh in the U.K.!!!

Fresh mushrooms are not deemed as being illegal in the UK.

The potency of dry sclerotia is around 2/3 that of dry Cubensis fruitbodies.

I know that but I don't think you can SELL fresh magic mushrooms.
