Psilocybe mexicana (?) on agar ?
    #2329551 - 02/13/04 06:15 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I've managed to get my Psilocybe mexicana (?) to germinate
on perennial rye grass seed, and have cloned some onto agar
using a few seeds from a jar.

They have taken a long time to leave the seed, and start to colonise
the agar (about 3 weeks) And today I have noticed small mounds of growth forming on two of the plates. These look like the start
of sclerotia, but I've only seen it form on whole plates before, and then with different species, could this be sclerotia, or a contamination do you think ? I ask as as you can see, there is very little mycelium to support it.

Does anyone have much experience of Psilocybe mexicana (?) on agar ?

The picture above shows the suspected mound at the far right.

This picture above, shwos it on the left of the picture.

And this final pic is a close up.

Sorry the pictures are a bit blurred, I find agar hard to photo grapth without removing the top plate. Any tips?

I don't see well enough to tell you if that's contamn or not, but usually (IME) mexicana starts producing sclerotia on agar only after it colonized whole plate for a long time. It could still be sclerotia because of rye grass seeds that you used for inoculation.
Anyway the white parts look fine and you should transfer them to new plates to avoid unnecessary risks.
