Psilocybe tampanensis
    #1557610 - 05/18/03 12:34 PM (15 years, 7 days ago)

Hi everyone! I recently inoculated 8 jars with P. Tampanesis (PF Tek). Just to keep things as scientific as possible, I simultaneously inoculated a control group of 8 jars with P. Cubensis (I have always had excellent results with this strain).

The P. Cubensis has performed flawlessly, but the P. Tampanesis - under the same conditions - has proven to be a royal pain in the arse to cultivate. Any suggestions/recommendations on methods or techniques which work well with this strain?

Are you casing? You need to case this species with a material that will have at least some microflora; I would use peat or a peat-based casing, IMO. Coir may work but I definatly would not use straight vermiculite. Temperatures have to be about 5 deg F lower, too, when running the jars and fruiting.

I don't know how it would do on a PF substrate; anyone else?

Psilocybe Tampanensis:

Substrate:cased rye grass seed, leached cow manure
Temperature: colonisation/fruiting: 75-81f / 72-75f

(P. Cubensis is a species, not a strain, by the way.)

I think PF substrate would work, but the cakes will need to be broken up and cased. Tamps fruit very well on birdseed IDE. I would allow the substrate to fully colonize then wait another 2 weeks before breaking up the cakes and casing.

Also, IDE a somewhat thicker casing than recommended does well for this species (maybe a quarter inch). The casing can also be more moist than recommended, just be sure it is not too wet.

AIR EXCHANGE is key for getting these guys to fruit nicely. Constant fresh humidified air is best. Other than that, cubie parameters work well.

Study the past...
See the future...
