Last year I started to grow this out and it grew fairly easy. I had it colonizing on birdseed, cased with 50/50+ tek, I also added some rye grass seed to actually grow grass along the edges of the casing. It was fruiting nicely, then my casing got hit by cobweb mold, and I used to much alcohol on it and destroyed the mycelium. I have a new culture on the way and will play with it again. If I remember correctly it was only about 7 weeks before it started fruiting... seemed about the same speed as some cubensis.
I too have grown tamps. It grows about 30% slower than most cubies I've grown. Spores took 5 days to indicate germination on MYPG agar at 80 degrees. Mycelium on agar took 14 days to cover a plate at 80 degrees. Quart jars (2/3 full) of rye grain took about 14 days to fully colonize at 82 degrees. Upon casing I kept the temp at 82 degrees for about eight days (till mycelium was halfway up the vallies) and then dropped the temp to 60 degrees for two days (to cold shock) and then brought the temp to 72 degrees and humidity to 92% till the appearance of pinn set (about 16 days). Then I keep the temp at 72 degrees and change the humidity to 87% till harvest (about 8 days).
If you cut out the agar step and go spores to grain...it comes out right at 7 weeks...hmm, Ryche have you been looking over my shoulder or something? LOL
Although the strain I was growing would fruit, it would not sporulate often. Still good fruit. It was such a good fruiter that I had numerous fruits on the agar dish itself...looked kewl.

So basically it's not much differnt than cultivating say, Psilo. Cubensis or Pan. Cyan./Trop.???? Seems to like a lower humiidty for fruiting? It also seems a slower grower. Does it not sporulate very good? Was it hard to take prints? Ryche, it fruits on bird seed? Might try that. Thanks for the help Ryche and Shroom Mage!
