Yes, I have come to the conclusion that Psi. Baeocystis does not like oak sawdust. Psi. Cyanescens does like it. It cannot hold moisture very well. Freshly chipped alder when left quickly becomes unusable if left for a month or so outside, because the saps seep out and other molds become rampant after you bring it indoors for colonization. You all should give psi. cyanescens and psi azurescens a try, after you germinate the spores it is really super easy, no sterility required really after you have cultures going. They can grow on almost any lignicolous materials and wastes; ie cardboard, newspaper, etc. At any rate look into it if you live in an area where you think you may have luck fruiting them outoors. If you want to grow them indoors, well give bio's method a try. Everyone says these species are difficult to grow; this does not cover the whole truth: They are by far the easiest (in my opinion) fungus to grow out on a substrate (woods, cardboard) as they are the only fungus present. They grow about 1/2 as fast as cubensis at an ideal temperature of 75 degrees (room temp) no warmer. So no heating/incubating devices are needed, seriously look into it.
I grew azures on cardboard substrate... part of the stuff got contaminated which I surgically excorcised... but I have got about 3 shrooms, not bad considerting that temps here are already in the 95 to 110 degree F range !! I love refrigerators !! Peace... I will see if ican dig up sdome pics. like i said some fuckups caused me to loose all the stuff ! but if i find a single pic, It'll be up here ! Used sterile cardboard, 12 hours in the refrigerator, and the other 12 ouitside !!! Peace

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

I finished up the cultures I had going with the acetone boosted casing a while ago. It seemed to help colonization speed and contamination resistance somewhat and definately didn't hurt anything. I would recommend it is worth a try for anyone growing Pans or having troubles with casing contamination.
I've been put on restriction from growing "bluing varieties" for a while by Mrs. Dung. I'm not growing anything that needs a casing for the time being, so I can't continue that experiment.
Other projects have been going well. I had some so-so luck with my shiitake mini-logs, I havested about 6 lbs wet from 24 1lb. logs.
I just got my first flush of elm oysters harvested. I think elm oysters might be my new favorite.
Anyway, I'm eating well , and Mrs Dung doesn't know about the little jar of "stones" hidden over in my brother's garage, so I'm getting by pretty well . Probably have to wait till at least this fall though before I can do some real experimenting again. Thank god I can still talk about it here.
