mexicana loves straw
    #956646 - 10/13/02 09:28 AM (21 years, 7 months ago)

my fire ants are working with mexicanas and have noticed they love straw. The fire ants are conducting an experiment with bags of grass seed and oyster shell, grass seed oyster shell and straw, and grass seed oyster shell straw and horse manure(small quantities). So far the best looking and quickest colonization goes to grass &straw the next is the same with the addition of horse manure and the slowest is the straight grass and oyster. These were all done with a agar isolate. weight differences(harvests) will be posted in the future, the fire ants are about to start working with tamps with the same mixtures. Next my fireants are going to be using straight straw since they liked it so much.

hi!
Tomorrow I'm also going to inoculate 12 jars of following substrate:
wheat straw granulate, tap water,(+ some gypsum) . ratio 1:1 by volume.
I'm doing Psilocybe mexicana. I ordered at mushmush, paid 20€,
should be Strain B.
But on the label that came with the print it says "Psilocybe mexicana A"
So I dunno if it's strain A or B. (I ordered before they sold two islolates, A and B)
I hope its strain A, sclerotia producing.

hi!
I get in in nearly every supermarket n Germany.
It looks like this: http://www.zooplus.de/app/WebObjects/ZooShop.woa?PID=5506&PG=1588&C=rame.aspFFP=5506&AF=15558
sorry it's German...
or take a look at http://www.mycomania.com/cgi-bin/store/agora.cgi?cart_id=580594.347*fe0Sd0&xm=on&product=subcas
(PELLETIZED WHEAT STRAW)
I didn't test it yet, but I do test it at the moment...
As P. mexicana is a grass- loving species, why shouldn't it work?

I have also grown P. cubensis on that PELLETIZED WHEAT STRAW ..
it's very mold- resistant.

Also take a look at http://www.zooplus.de/app/WebObjects/ZooShop.woa?PID=5506&PG=1588&C=rame.aspFFP=5506&AF=15558
It's hemp straw, maybe you could also use it as substrate for P mex.

well, at least it's more resistant than grain.
It's also colonized quicker than normal straw, as it's denser
plus you can shake it.
I NEVER had mold on it BUT one time there was green mold...after colonisation of substrate.
I also use it for direct cloning...
I don't want to mess up with petri dishes.

In reply to:

Go to Petco or PetsMart and look for either Critter Country or Cat Country, both are made from winter wheat grass.

This is the post, but there wasn't a final update as to the progress.
