Update today... is WBS a better Mexicana substrate than Rye Grass Seed (RGS)?

Today's link... a little Mexicana history from the Vaults of Erowid.
http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/references/other/1971_hofmann_bulletin-narcotics.shtml

Looking good Loki... I love those little guys. Your post reminded me... there are many sclerotia producing fungi. The commercialy available strains are Psilocibe Mexicana A, B and Jalisco strains. Or Psilocibe Tampenensis. All are grown and fruited in similar ways but Tampenensis takes longer to mature and is supposedly slightly more potent than Mexicana.

Love the way theres so much info in this one thread, a five shroom thread if ever there was :cool:

Musesicksic, my thread in the cult forum turned into a semi
grow log, but once this grow is complete, I'll post a full
log on it here :smile:
It should be about 5 more days.
Thanks for the compliments :thumbup:

Will someone who knows please confirm? Does Don have knots? If so, pins are coming soon. Should this casing be dusted again?

The top pic in today's update is the best one for knot viewing look for the bright white spots.

They taste better than cubes... more like nuts... yeah... they look weird... but the trip is smoother than a cube trip. They look like nuts, turds, brains, stones. They do not look anything like shrooms.

I like to think of them as fungus potatoes.

Easy as hell to grow.

Mexicana Mycelia is as beautiful as the stones are ugly.

Gollum LOVES 'em!  :thumbup:

My friend, Don Quixote, is also working with Penis Envy.

He's been muttering... "Dicks and brains... Dicks and brains..."

I honestly don't know what is wrong with him.

But let me give you a little trip tip... both sclerotia and penis envy are thick, dense, heavy fungus... once it is dried and put in the coffee grinder... it looks like powder... just like any other fungus powder... put that in chocolate and it looks... and tastes like chocolate... put it in tea... and it looks and tastes like tea... you can put it on a boat... you can put it on  a float... you can grow it in a jar... you can grow it in your car... I do not like green eggs and ham... I do not like them Sam I Am.

Don's pan cyans contaminated... but it was bad WBS... everything he tried with it went south... not just the pans. Hopefully, he will do better next time.

:wexican:OK... no pics this week but I think it is a good time to discuss the potency of Mexicana Sclerotia.

This question gets asked a lot and it is good to know the answer.

How potent is sclerotia when compared with cubensis?

It depends.

Fresh sclerotia is 2x as potent as fresh cubensis... gram for gram.

Dry sclerotia is 2/3 as potent as dry cubensis gram for gram.

"WTF?", you ask.

No, mexicana doesn't lose a HUGE amount of potency when it is dried.

When fresh, Mexicana sclerotia is 30% dry matter and only 70% water. Compare this to a fresh cube which is 90% water and only 10% dry matter. When you eat fresh sclerotia... for every bite you take, you are eating 3X as much fungus per bite than you do when you chew on a fresh cube.

Once dried, the potency comparison changes completely. Without the water, a dry gram of sclerotia is 100% dry matter and a gram of cubensis is 100% dry matter too. Duh! So a dry gram of sclerotia contains the same amount of dry matter as a dry gram of cubensis. Simple.

Dry sclerotia is only 2/3 as potent as dry cubensis.

That is how it is.

What follows is some simple math. Perhaps this will make more sense to some people.

If cubensis potency = 1

Then, sclerotia potency = 2/3 = .66666666666

If fresh sclerotia contains 3X as much dry matter per gram as fresh cubensis,

Then, fresh sclerotia = .66666666666 X 3 = 2

Fresh sclerotis is 2X as potent as cubensis.

Phwew, the math part's done.

Any questions, comments, better ways of explaining this potency issue?

It is important you understand before you eat any.

:wexican:As for mexicana shrooms, I hear they are very potent... almost as potent as pan cyans! I haven't eaten mexicana shrooms. I am just relaying what I have heard.

:wexican:I figure this is also, a good time to talk about the effects of eating sclerotia. They work. They are very similar to cubensis but also completely different. They are obviously from the same family of shrooms. The Philosopher stones are not the most visual thing I have tried but they are potent and they last a long time (I suspect this is because it takes a while longer to digest sclerotia than it takes to digest cubensis matter). The visuals are similar to cubes but you see things painted with broader strokes. I have seen big wipes of color and skin begins to look like clay. When I see patterns, they are less detailed than cubensis patterns tend to be. Outdoors, sclerotia visuals come to life. Nature is great with any shroom but sclerotia seems very nice. That, and it is easier to hold a coherant conversation with sclerotia. Perhaps this is why they are nicknamed philosopher's stones.

I really like a sclerotia trip... but I still hold a place in my heart for cubensis.

Sclerotia is great for hiking or park day... and it is very discrete. It looks nothing like a mushroom.

Dry sclerotia can be ground in a coffee grinder but it should not be injested whole. You simply will not digest it. Either rehydrate the stones by dunking them in water for 24 hours or grind them up in the coffee grinder.

Ground sclerotia goes great in chocolate I hear.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...3453.</a>

I know it makes wonderful tea. Try mint tea with sclerotia.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...&PHPSESSID=

:wexican:Oh yeah... and there is an update in the Grow Log up above.

(Edit: Fixed the chocolate link.)

Is it common for Mexicana A to take over 10 days to go from knot to pin?

I figure these babies will pin eventually.

New pics added to the grow log.
