Selection of "Psilocybe atlantis"
    #4123889 - 05/02/05 05:20 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Small test fruitings of a relatively new undescribed species from Georgia. According to Guzman, this is actually not Psilocybe atlantis but yet another species which was inadvertently collected along with Psilocybe atlantis samples. Unfortunately this has caused some confusion and circulating strains of "Psilocybe atlantis" are entirely this yet unnamed species.

I was sent a a pair of slides containing about a dozen spore prints of this species several years ago. I recently selected 7 prints and streaked them on agar. One grew sluggishly and was rejected and another got overlooked when I inoculated the grass seed and will be tested at a later date. Out of the 5 remaining cultures 3 are fruiting well.


Best performers

The winner so far. It quickly forms sclerotia on grass seed invitro and fruited the earliest out of the 5.


All fruiting mini-trays were inoculated with multispore cultures and several strains may be showing in any one tray. Many are growing long and bendy but some are more robust. The best specimen of mushroom and sclerotia will be cloned and fruited as a true isolation.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

work,
So how do you go about finding the best one. Do you inoculate using agar wedges from the original spored dish?

Under his instruction, I taped drumsticks to his head and turned him into a sort of mummy, or perhaps a caterpiller in a cocoon. He remains this way for about three hours, making bizarre noises, pretending to be a new species that must learn to walk and talk and eat, etc. And he communicates with other life forms by way of the antennae on his head. Eventually we jam a tube from a waterbong into it's mouth and figure he's learned all he needs to know.

I am afraid I won't be releasing anything new until my issues with a parasitic vendor are dealt with.  Sorry :frown:

Specimen number 7. A late developer, good form but only modest spore production. Specimen 3 has better spore production and is now producing stouter mushrooms as well as good sclerotia production. It is too early to tell how it compares to Mexicana A in potency and productivity. Further testing is scheduled.

Any way I can get in on any of this 'further testing'?? Especially in the potency category :wink:

I live in WA.. and am a VERY willing guine pig!

hehe, just wishful thinking I guess.

By the way.. those are TEENY shrooms!! I love em!! They look like they pack a punch though. :BLAMO!:  What's the average weight / wet fruit on those PA's?

Specimen number 3 second flush. Better spore production than most mexicana strains and promising sclerotia production in this particular strain.





Sclerotium forming.

Over mature specimen of sample #1. This mushroom grew suprisingly large, about 1.5 inches in diameter.

Hole in left hand piece is from sample removed for cloning. The texture is somewhat different than what is seen in mexicana/tampanensis sclerotia. It seems more granular and uniform in appearance.

Specimen #1 again. This strain was rejected earlier because it was thought to be a poor spore producer. Actually it is a very good spore producer and the mushrooms were just being harvested too early. This strain continues to grow after the cap goes plane and only after becoming quite large does spore production begin. Clones of this specimen and specimen #3 which shows good sclerotia production will be put into new trials for production. Only after extensive testing are new strains/species released.

Exactly, but probably not those exact names. The mexicana strains were not really named but just given their lab designation codes. This wasn't a well thought out choice but now that it is stuck it can't really be changed without undue confusion.
