Liberty caps in July, August and Sept! outdoor patch. * 1
    #4384321 - 07/08/05 04:54 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Psilocybe semilanceata fruiting in July (7/7/05)



This is the same clone as featured in Psilocybe semilanceata - indoor cultivation.



Outdoor temperatures have been in the high 60's to low 70's F. Normally this species appears around October-November when temperatures start to dip below 45F with heavy rains. This odd specimen apparently can tolerate a wider range of temperatures. The outdoor patch was composed of a 5 pound bag of sterilized horse manure inoculated with a quart jar of grass seed spawn. Most of the fully colonized mass was buried shallowly in a shady area on 3/25/05. A small amount of the colonized manure was placed in a microbox with peat/lime casing for the indoor fruiting attempt at 58F.

The mushrooms are growing in dense grass that grew over the patch during the spring. They were difficult to see and photograph so the grass was carefully pressed down to expose the mushrooms. They would have never been seen if the patch area wasn't known.

Artificial beds fruiting outside of the normal season has been observed with other species . The unnaturally large masses of mycelium tend to spontaneously produce mushrooms at the slightest change in the weather. Unfortunately the weather rarely stays ideal and the mushrooms tend to dry out or stop growing when the weather returns to normal.

I've determined that the bluish green coloration of the caps is only present in mushrooms not exposed to direct light. This is a color variant of Psilocybe semilanceata that I have only seen once before in some British specimens. Other wild specimens collected in the same area are of the normal brown color.

So,

1)The strain you have there is a keeper! More experimentation is needed
2)I am amazed on how different the phenotype is from "normal picked Semilanceatas"!
3)Well....Yup,its a keeper!

Great work. The colour changing is intersting, I thought the ones in your other thread looked far different from the ones I pick. They seem to have quite slimey caps too.

This patch is still going. It stopped for a couple of weeks in August when the ground dried out completely. But it started fruiting again when I added a bit of water. Apparently this is a warm tolerant strain that can easily fruit through a mild summer with supplimental watering as well as artificially indoors. Room temperature (~72F) fruiting tests are pending.



Older mushrooms are staining blue on the caps as they dry out in the low humidity air.

Workman, is there any consideration being made on your behalf to assembling an "Active" photography book? Your pictures are consistently wonderful and with all the different types of photography books out there, you would have a best seller on your hands as far as this subject matter is concerned.

Maybe someday. But I really need a higher resolution camera for publishing. I also need a better camera with manual macro focus and a fill flash. I don't really know much about photography. I just compose things in a way that looks good to me and take a ton of pictures and hope some turn out. I should take a photography class. Anyway, thanks for the compliment.
