when colonizing wood chips more cardboard can be added on top like a thin casing layer, cover that (loosely) with plastic wrap .
when mycelium moves to this cardboard it can be used to start more chips . :laugh:

Did they have a veil?
They had a thin veil that separated almost entirely from the stem and they looked like the shrooms in the pics except for the color. Both the stems and caps were a light tan and the color was mottled rather than evenly distributed. They blued more strongly than cubensis but the potency was about the same and the flavor was much milder. Workman had a logo of a frog sitting on top of a shroom with a light colored, mottled cap. That's what they looked like.
I tried making some prints on freezer paper but the prints were too thick and the spores separated from the paper and started drifting around like fly-ash from burnt paper.
I have a few decent prints and a lot of "fly-ash". PM me if you are interested in a print.

Ok look I've checked everywhere on this site for a thread relating to my question by couldn't find one, my question is: If I was to get 2 ultrasonic humidifiers or maybe 3 well however many I need and am using 3ft. X 2ft X 1.5ft. tupperwares as terriums after the initial innoculation and pinning how many 1/2 pint cakes would I need to produce a 1/2lb or so of dry mushrooms every 2 weeks. Me and a friend of mine have experimented with smaller amounts but have recently found the need to grow in bulk conditions but need to keep a low profile (thus the easily hidden tupperwares.) plus that methods we are using now seems to work GREAT and produce rapidly. Please give me all the information and ideas possible. Thanks. You can e-mail me at Racer6908@aol.com if you need to, actually I would prefer it so I could check it out more often. Thanks again.

woodrow, the spores you sent me germinated, currently the mycelium looks very cube-ish.



I?ll transfer the rhyzomorphic looking growth to grain today.

The growth looks the same as mine and I find it grows nicely on grain. I have four prints left if anyone else would like to try to identify an unknown from the wild.
Nice pic!

(i hope this isnt a stupid question)

can you use a honey tek or karo tek with ps. cyans or azures? (or honestly anything non cubensis? - but still in the realm of psilocybe)

thanks!

So today I can exclude P. azurescens, yet I?m still curious what kind of an alien is waiting for me...

Oh wow, I was just about to give this "woodrow" strain a shot from a print he sent me awhile back...

That picture has increased my interest tenfold, even now that it has been ruled out as an azure. Do all the immature mushrooms / pins have that white, almost completly veiled look to them? Its kinda hard to see it real close in the pic, but it looks really different to me. Please keep us updated Anno. But I know you will :smile: That think looks almost scary compared to all I have seen, and very interesting...

Anno,

What kind of substrate did you use?
Are the growth parameters the same as a Cubensis?
I would also like to know if you have a guess on what it resembles strain wise if it is indeed a cube.

One more question, did you find that the prints were clean? I remember woodrow told me he took them outside sometimes (I could be wrong), so I was wondering about the sterility. I wouldnt want to waste time using a syringe, when agar would be necessary.

Anyway, I will figure it out one way or another.

Rye grain

I use the same.

I have no clue for now... Let?s wait till the cap opens.

>One more question, did you find that the prints were clean?
Mine was very clean. No mold or bacteria whatsoever.

I'm curious, what kind of woodchips would you need for azures? Does it have to be a specific type of tree?
