The possible cultivation of Psilocybe Fimetaria
    #27267578 - 03/24/21 04:34 PM (1 month, 11 days ago)

This is my first post on shroomery so first let me introduce myself.

I have been interested in psychdelic fungi for a solid 10 years now. In this time I have lurked a lot on shroomery and mycotopia for info about them but never posted nor did I take any effort in growing fungi myself. I did learn a lot about ID'ing in the wild and I found liberty caps a couple of times as well as some wavy caps but nothing much apart from 1 good trip.

Now to this year with the covid I searched for a new hobby and there was mushroomgrowing and hunting again. I felt it was my year and I went out to some spots I had a good feeling about. I found a bunch of libertycaps and panaeolus cinctulus but then I found as well, rare in the world but here in Netherlands common, Psilocybe Fimetaria:

Through facebook I contacted Alan who macroscopically confirmed the find. I took around 4 good and another 4 vague prints.

I have now put one of these prints to agar (LME+yeast) in a SAB. I just made one plate just to see if the print I used had any obvious contamination issues. The plate was inoculated at the 21st of March 2021 and now the 24th I see the tinies bit of growth. I am not able to capture it well on camera but surely there is something going on.Now as soon as I am able to get a better picture and a transfer I will post it here.

I have a plan in mind to see if I can get a solid agar culture going and then to put that to a bulk of manure and straw. CaptainFuture has done a similar thing with Psilocybe Liniformans and threw this sub (which was contaminated I believe) outside in the garden and alas that year Liniformans grew in his garden. Since Liniformans and Fimetaria are so close I figure a same kind of idea will be mine. First get a substrate going and then just toss this outside to see what happens. Also I might want to try a tub and maybe some flowering pots.

However, I am a fair noob when it comes to cultivation. Although I have a ton of theory in my head a lot of practical knowledge is missing and this is where maybe some of you guys can give tips on how to approach the cultivation of this species. Right now I have done 1 succesful cubensis grow from spores (agar>rye>coir/verm monotub) and am currently trying to recreate the indoor ovoid experiment by making a 'river bank' in thaw in a tub with spawn (if this pulls off as I hope I will post on this forum) as well as some more cube and tampanensis on rye on the way. I do know how to use a PC and how to agar however thats where it basicly ends. If you have any suggestions on how to approach the cultivation of Psilocybe Fimetaria it would be greatly admired.

Thanks a lot in advance,
Semilancreator

Part two of this journey:

After a good week of nice slow but steady growth I woke up to see a tiny spot turned green. Probably I coudl have noticed it earlier (I thought it was just a normal tiny white myc spot before she turned trichey on me) and I also should not have waited so long with making a transfer.

So back to step one and inoculate a new plate. The plan is to make a transfer at day 5 only two days after germination (be it that the speedrate will be the same this time) and to keep transferring every 5 days or so for 3 plates or more to see if we can get a clean culture going on. If you have any tips on transfering plates made from wild prints let me know pls.

Mush love,

Is there not a portion that can be saved and transferred further rather than starting over?
Chances are you'll get trich again due to the dirty print.

I was thinking about this but first I am a bit clumsy so I think I have a high chance of ruining my SAB if I transfer. Secondly I ve handled the plate and it even fell of its shelf once so prolly the whole inside is sporulated.
So I guess starting a new is my best guess. I still have enough prints and plates and am only 1.5 week into the project so I am not minding. Besides... this is more of an experiment/proof of concept rather than a serious grow.

Nonetheless thanks for the feedback!

Hi people,

I hope you all have survived the fallout and have now safely returned to the mothership.
In Fimetaria land we have had some developments mainly that of unwantend moulds and bacteria :smile:.

This was the plate that got trich. I made one transfer which seemed to do good for a while but suddenly developed a shine.

From this plate I took two little samples which both grew but developed some bacteria of their own.


From the first I took one transfer. From the other which had tumbled over which made the transfer "coat" the agar which resulted in multiple new spots of mycelium I took 3 transfers.
I left the one of the older plates and touched it a couple of times to introduce contamination just to see how the mycelium will fair.

For science I will let this one sit for a month or so and take another picture to see what has happened.
That was it for now. I hope you like what you see and if you have any questions or remarks let me know.

Mush love,
