I'm told its not easy, and it doesn't seem to be something people attempt. I've seen only a couple of success stories, and they're not by your average guy. I think I've read that it forms in some special way with the grass its growing on. It also grows in pastures with cattle poo and all, but not directly off it.

Anyone have any specific information, or sources?

Also almost no psilocin. Mjshroomer once posted that some were dried for a very long time and had very minimal potency lost.

I did not really find succesfull teks in my search... I like them also cause they are native here, not only because they are stronger.
Since they are rather tiny and small I think one will get more potency per square inch with cubes...

Even if you could cultivate it successfully, you wouldn't get a flush like a cube flush. So, by weight itd be more potent, probably not by grow.

I agree , i wouldnt minds having small yeilds of those i would glady put up with crappy yeilds just to have a few of those around all the time, plus there not native here so i gotta wait for the right season and then i have to go on a road trip to visit a friend who hunts them every year. oh well makes for a interesting trip every year.

Quote:



Mycelium obtained from the spores of one mushroom (GARTZ & MULLER, 1989) was kept as a stock culture on 6% malt agar. Cotton-plugged 500 ml Erlenmeyer flasks were filled with horse manure compost (STAMETS & CHILTON, 1983), sterilized by autoclaving, cooled, inoculated from stock cultures and incubated at 21 ?C.
Fruiting of the mycelia occured without casing 12 till 16 weeks after inoculation.

That doesen't sound too difficult... horse poo should be readily available. You should be able to use cow poo too.

You can get spores from thesporeworks. Nobody grows them? :confused:

Yeah, the yields will be nothing compared to cubensis, but you could say the same thing about Panaeolus.* ...

Sporeworks carries them but they're sold out.

Hey discman im not so interested in high yields, more in cultivating LibCaps in itself.
Maybe spreading their mycelium around in some good habitats here too..

I will do some research on it, but as stated I have so much to explore I want too much too quick sometimes....

Thanks!

Yes yes, I completely agree. That's why I was surprised it seems nobody does.

I would love to grow some, myself.
