So I got a free SOUTH AFRICAN TRANSKEI
    #1650800 - 06/21/03 01:14 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Can anyone tell me about this strain?  How is it to grow?  I will be using the PF-tek method.  Also, does anyone know what the trip is like? 

thanks :smile:

South Africa. Psilocybe mushrooms are thought to be almost non existent in South Africa. The last known species being the p.s. Natalensis has not been collected in many years. This past year some friends of ours discovered some psilocybes growing on the coast about 200 miles south of Durban, South Africa. They were growing under shady trees in cow pastures soaking up the ocean breeze. At first they did not think they were cubensis because they could not believe their eyes. Sure enough the mushrooms stained blue and later were grown out and showed to be cubensis. Of course our friends in South Africa wanted to share them with the world and a lof of effort has gone in to bringing these spores to the forefront. This is the only known psilocybe mushroom in circulation from South Africa!!

Its pretty early in the game for these so we dont have a lot to report yet. They are fast colonizers and very agressive mycelium. They do tend to develop a little overlay but eventually pin and fruit anyway. They do not produce large fruits but are very abundant fruiters giving off nice yields for a small amount of grain substrate. No telling how these will change over time as they become more domesticated. Our friend says the potency is very nice for a cubensis and is quite pleased with these South Africa gems. They tend to resist contamination well, especially green mold (trichoderma). Making these a real nice choice for beginning researchers or people having problems with contamination. A lot more to develop on these so stay tuned. Currently the spores we have are from 2nd generation mushrooms, so they are rather untamed. We usually dont release strains before they are domesticated, so we only have a limited amount of these 2nd generation spores of this strain. We look forward to your feedback of the South Africa cubies and we do hope you enjoy as much as our friends in South Africa wanted to bring them to you :smile:
Update: We have been getting a lot of reports back from people outside the U.S growing this one and saying they are extremely fast colonizers and resist contamination very well.

Ok...so hypothetically of course....if I had a choice between growing B+ or these africans, what would be better for an inexperienced grower?

I've just finished a flush of Transkei, things of note include very aggressive colonization. Mycelium overtook the casing heavily. Caps have a pale/white circumference.

I haven't tripped off them, but someone once said they now know why the Africans run around with bones in their noses!

:laugh:
