Yeah, no sclerotia. A better bet is to scrap the old culture and find a new wild one. They still grow commonly in Mexico. Someone in the area just needs to pick some and take prints.

So,the strain doesn't form sclerotia? The strain also hasn't been fruited by anybody?
Sounds like a bad deal!
Somebody needs to take a trip to Mexico.
Workman,
I was under the impression that they do grow in Mexico, but not as common as Cubensis. I also believe(my opion or theory) that they probably are more widespread than Mexico.
There is a slight chance they might be found in other tropical and sub-tropical climates, like Texas, Lousiana. Miss., Alabama etc...... or further south like Honduras,Gautemala, Nicaragua etc.......
Also, they may not form sclerotia indoors, but they might outdoors? Sclerotia is a survival mechanism. When cultivating it indoors, most cultivators try to grow at optium growth parameters. There is no danger stimuli(heat,cold,drought), for it to kick into survival mode.
With out a new or different strain, there isn't much hope, and cultivating the same strain indoors hasn't worked yet.
Somebody living in a tropical or sub-tropical climate might get lucky by preparing a couple outdoor beds. It might form scleortia or pinheads from outdoor stimuli? There is a very slight chance, this may work. But there is so little to loose and so much to gain.

Couple o quickies:
these babies need casings right? That's what TMC says, I assume it's right.

Just got an email that roundtrip tickets to mex city and monterrey mex as low as $180 for travel on the 10th. email me if you want to go, I'll send a link. BTW if you've never been south o the border, cheap stays galore esp in rural areas, that's all they have is cheap.

One of us here at the shroomery is already in mex. I don't remember his name, but it is some aztec god or something, I remember because he digs Initial State and I didn't think anyone in mex would have heard of them.

Ryche, if you're so buddy buddy with your esse down south, why not just get him to mail some prints, I just don't think we should wait for summer. I need instant gratification.
Yes they are more widespread than mex. They can be found commonly further south in Belize and in Guatemala. Unfourtunately, last summer while I was in belize and guate., we arrived on the first day of the rainy season. No caps! It didn't even rain but once the whole time we were down there. Rainy season starts end of July, not sure when it ends but I'll bet it's soon if not now. We need to get prints soon if we get them at all before next fall!
end thoughts.

It seems as if I have assumed something and made an ass of I and I. Sorry, it sounded like he lived down there and ya'll were tight. Did you ever get my PM, Ryche? where did PM go anyway, I can't find it to check mine or send more? If you didn't, I'll drop you an e-mail.
I just remembered, I met an extemely cool and talented guide in western Belize (also works in Guatemala). He knew a little about mushrooms, and also knew they were out of season and that I wouldn't find any (he was right). I bet with a little monetary motivation, I might could get him to find a print. Trying to contact him in the next 7 seconds, updates coming.

Heya Mycophile,
nope... no private message.
I'll be gone for a day, but will check my emails tommarrow.

yeah.. that would be great if you can get a hold of your friend from Belize.

I think the problem is most of the ppl in these 3rd world countries really dont care about spores or growing the mushrooms. Nor do they know much about the different species. What they do know is they can pick them and sell them to us tourist :smile:
