Philospher's Stones?
    #2058300 - 10/30/03 08:34 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

My friends popcorn casing of Mazapatec's has developed a small growth that resembles "philospher's stones" he's seen on the shroomery and other sites. Is this what it could be? It looks very odd and is not a mushroom, it started off as a small ball of white mycelium and slowly turned dotted and brown, and then now looks like a philospher's stone, so...any suggestions as to what the fuck this is?

Cubensis do not form them. Its moste likely a big ball of mycelium.

I know what your talking about though, I've seen them before on casings.

HHhmm, I thought they were from MexiCub A strain. Maybe I'm wrong, but doesn't Cub, stand for Cubensis?

That's what I thought initially, but Angryshroom advised otherwise, so I'm just gonna take his advice.

p. cubensis do not form sclerotia. sclerotia forms in species that have to weather a dry winter. examples are: p. mexicana and species from the morchella family (morels).
