Interesting formations Psi. semperviva (pics)

Hi,

Psi. semperviva is known for not building sclerotia, and this was a criteria it being not a Psi. mexicana (Heim & Cailleux). I found although that it produces interesting condensation of mycellium on the sides of the petri dishes or growing containers. It look like rizomorphe growth, that was compactated inmenselly. Take a look for your self:





I would also like to post a picture which shows the difference between Psi. semperviva growing directly on rye and ones growing on straw. Besides you can see how humid they like it to have. The ones in the jar are on rye, the ones in the tupperware are on straw:



Have fun,

Elektrolurch

I've had great results growing on past. straw. I found also that Psi. cubensis grows bigger on straw, than when grown directly on rye.

The most important thing about straw is to pasteurize it correctly (40 min to 1 h at 70 C). If you pasteurize at a too high temperature the straw contaminates easily. This means you have to get a good thermometer that has a range of 0 C to 110 C or so. The rest is done by nature. Many different species fruit on straw, starting with Pan cyan, going through Psi. semperviva and Psi. mexicana and ending at Pleurotus ostratos or Stropharia rugoroso-anulata.
Give it a try, the worst thing is not to try...

The casing is only pasteurized. I use normal soil for plants humdified and pasteurized in the microwave at the highest power for 8 min. I let it cool down and balance the humidity to ca. 90 % of saturation. That way it can be stored for months, if not even longer...
