Where on earth did you get ahold of the mexicana? are you sure that it isn't psi mexican. They are two different strains. If it is indeed the mexicana, do not let it pin in vitro. Case it and keep the temps around 75. If it is a viable strain, then you should see pins about 7-14 days after casing. When you crumble it for casing you may notice some stones in the mycelium. Leave them in the substrate because they will grow some more. Take one flush off of the cake and get prints. Raise the temps back up around 80-85 and you will max out your stone production. The stones are where the real magic is with this species. If you are sure that it is mexicana email me. I am very interested and have some expertise with this strain.
Umm... i doubt it is mexicana. I currently am working with a true Ps. Mexicana culture that is resisting fruiting and pinning in general. I am also yet to see hope with sclerotia formation. Only time will tell.
Los: Follow the instructions in the PF-Tek, and choose if you want to, choose a casing technique from here on the shroomery (optional) or just go straight PF-Tek by pinning right off the cake.
Perhaps you can tell us where you got the culture/spores from? That would clear up if it was indeed a P. Mexicana or a P. Cubensis (var mexican).

Hey camel, To get the stones you need to wait they take about 3 months to grow the best results I have had with these is with strait brown rice pre-cooked to half dry and inoculated in pint jars. let em go a whole 3 months and you will get about 60 to 70% stones. It's nasty to harvest and you need to eat ab
