strain?
substrate?
casing?
cold shock?
how potent compared to cubensis?
any other strategy different to growing cubes?
experience on agar? (if yes please take a look at:

Holy crap. I thought your other picture was good just in that there were fruits at all. This is fantastic, without even cold shocking.

How much did you case in each tray?

I think i have to order an print from Sporeworks  :grin:.

Did you get good prints? When the caps are very small you can gently put an waterdrop with an syringe on the cap, or yo put an wet cotton ball into the printing area.

Where did you get your print Prankster? Not sure of many places that carry them other than sporeworks and that non-sponser place azarius (just heard about it the other minute in the other mexi a thread).

I have been trying to print some of them and not having much luck. They seem to dry out before I get a good print (8 to 10 hours they are dry to the touch). I have tried putting a drop or two of water on the cap but it has not helped. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get them to make good prints? I have some prints but they are light.

Maby it will work when you really put some wet cottonballs on an petri dish into the box you print. Then you can put the box at an wam place that the humitiy stay higher.

Prints tend to get darker in later flushes. Good luck.

You know what? I didn't get a good answer on this from anyone, but I left the upside down jar(foil and cap on the bottom) on top of my air pump for 10 minutes to get a really nice print. Try that.

Hate to cross post, but my previous one in the grow log section is far less likely to get a response. So.. this seems more appropriate:

I'm getting ready to do this, but the only place I can find rye grass seed is the hardware store. They have small bags for like 7 bucks, and gigantic ones for 40. Whatever. Anyway my question was, as the only brand is "Scott's", does anyone know if it has fungicide or any other harmful material? It doesn't say so on the bag, but it definately doesn't say it doesn't, or all natural or anything. Any help?

I'm pretty sure it has to say if there is. Sounds a bit pricey though... well, it is the off season. Not many planting lawns right now.

I used Scotts Turf Builder Perennial Rye Grass Seed from Home Depot. It was about 7$ for the 3lb bag and I used less that 1/3 of the bag making 6 jars. So it should work fine.

I have just started picking them. around 15 so far (For printing) and they amount to about .4g for the 15 (Dry weight) They are vary small!

To give you an idea of there size, This is a 12cc syringe on the casing
