mexicana mycelia
    #3292745 - 10/29/04 07:36 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

i inoculated some spawn bags 6 days ago with mycelia water. they all seem to be growing something but its only Grey and wispy not the bright white i would associate with cubensis myc. is this OK for mexicana. all the jars that I've seen done are bright white. sorry i cant include a pic. The bags arnt very photogenic.

your help is much appreciated

some species of psilocybe have thinner mycelium than cubensis i believe. i think you'll be ok, but wait for someone else with more experience to answer...

as always, time will tell.

Yeah, I know you said "bags" but this is a good close up of the myc and it should look the same in either. Someone on here posted a pic of their mexicana a bag not that long ago (within the last 2-3 weeks maybe?) so if you do a search you might get lucky.

so you think its probably mexicana myc, and i should just wait to see the kind of growth in the jars on sporeworks?

I guess. I can't see your jars so I dunno. Just compare your jars to those pics. If it looks close then you're set. If not, wait. It should be slower then cubes so if it colonizes in like 10 days you have a problem, heh.

Mexicana myc is whitish, but it is less vivid than cubensis, sometimes it is grey or tan. It takes a while to start growing. It grows very slowly. Eventually, you will see it is myc. If it is growing quickly, it is likely a contamination.

compaired to the bright white of cubensis myc
mexicana myc is off-white to tan and can have multicolored zones sometimes and wants to incubate at 75-81 F

Yeah, room temp is fine for incubating and fruiting Mexicana.
