Pray tell kind sir, exactly how were those monsters grown? Were those largest of specimens in jars or bags and for how long? Multi-spore or isolated strain? And to what do you attribute their phenomenal size?

Oh yeah, one more thing, CLONE THAT MOTHERFUCKER!!!

I talk to them a lot :wink:

Seriously, it is a pure-strain inoculation. The bags are inoculated with mycelial suspension through a syringe and the hole is taped. They are shaken and  placed in darkness at 20-23oC. That's really all there's to it :smile:

How does sclerotia compare to the fruits via weight. What do they dry down too, 10% of the weight fresh???

sclerotia are roughly 30% dry matter, so they dry down to a little more than 30& of the fresh weight.

Bringing back the dead. Were these monsters grown with your tampanensis or the mexicana? I am thinking of tring the mexicana, but from reading your site it seems like you have the best luck from the tampanensis. Also can you get decent yeilds with multispore?

Beautiful dreamer.

I think the title of the post "HUGE mexicana sclerotia" has your answer.

OK now I feel like an idiot. I must have read the thread 4 times looking for which strain and wasn't even thinking about what made me click the link in the first place.

I have eaten these [Re: mycofile]
    #636943 - 05/19/02 09:46 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Actually, I was on a visit to Amsterdam and came across a vendor offering these under the name of 'Philosopher Stones'. The shop, I believe, was called "Conscious Dreams" or something. I ate two of these and each were about the size of a US quarter coin. Very nice experience. They really had no taste and were similar to texture as very soft nuts like Macadamias.

I was curious. Do you get this rock-looking growth by simply growing invitrio? Can you give us some details, Una?

appreciatively,

di11rod
