Cased Pans Cyanscens white puffs.

Question

My first tray of Pans.Cyanscens.

Spawned on rye berries. Cased 50/50 peat/Verm.

Covered in foil 10 days. I misted the casing after 5 days.

Opened last night and discovered this... I don't think it's mycelium...20161004_083200.jpg

I should add... there is a slight musty smell, similar to decomposing straw

From what I have read pans are slow on plain rye .and the mycilium on the one I have done so far looked really Cottony .i would sit it out in the light way away from your gro area I'm betting it turns green .sorry.

so you put a casing on then incubated the casing, after incubating the substrate?

I think there was a missed step. But you should send to fruit and see what happens!

Maybe we have a new tek... Not likely tho

Yes that is what I did. Ipasteurized 50 50 peat and vermiculite,  took the colonized rye berries and placed them into the bottom of a tray. Then I covered the berries with the casing. The first time I did this was with the initial colonized substrate from the Spore syringe. Results with this we're not super impressive although successful. However that was with Treasure Coast. The tray and this picture is pans cyans. Also the initial colonized substrate from Spore syringe but this time not the Treasure Coast. I do have a tray of Treasure Coast which seems to have successfully endured this casing colonization but time will tell. Other forums do not seem to indicate the requirement for this spawning substrate ie Coco coir and poop. Perhaps I read too many teks and got myself confused, but for example the PF Tek which I used initially early this year did not have this spawning step. In fact I did not even case these cakes but let them grow in a fruiting chamber and got two decent flushes. I am prepared to change my procedures because I want to be quite successful.

probably but doesnt look like much value for the money. my experience wih caribsea products is they cost way too fucking much. I have a lot of aquariums.

I'll keep looking. Also, is humus suitable as compost? I can get 50 lbs of Black Kow manure for a fiver at wallyworld..

yes humus works. it is basically compost. Just don't get anything that has added fertilizers or nutrients. And preferably no added peatmoss or anything that will lower the PH beyond normal levels.

OK. I have a pH meter. What is my target?

7.5 - 8.0 ph you will need to adjust it most likely with pickling lime or the sorts.

Niidaho, one of my Ology heroes. Thanks for the space Coast spore prints it was super clean and I hope I'm about to get a monster flush. 

Thanks

      Great read Samwise, thanks for sharing that. I'd like to try a blind study with the intent to explore these concepts a bit further. If one brewed a few different teas using say 2.5g cubensis, 1g mexicana, 1g Psilocybe cyanescens, 1g Panaeolus cyanescens and chose one at random and reported on the effects, this might be a fairly simple way to eliminate bias of any sort. While I have experimented quite a bit with cubensis and Ps. cyans in many different doses and contexts (mexicana less so, four times total) and developed pretty firm beliefs about the effects of each, I still can't be 100% sure that I'm not demonstrating bias. The differences do seem quite stark though I must say. I remember a bit from one of Terence's talks where he explores the idea of the content of psychedelic experiences and how they might be transformed or populated by the sum total of all of the previous trips taken. At the time, ketamine had recently arrived on the scene and he spoke about how the ketamine trip was often reported to be very "empty". This was, in his opinion, because very few people had experienced it, unlike the classic psychedelics which were packed with innumerable previous trips and revelations. I think his angle of approach to the subject was a little bit "woo woo" (to borrow his own lingo), because what he failed to mention was that ketamine had not yet been tamed by language. Since few people had described it, the experience lacked preconceived biases and therefore may have appeared to be empty. There was no roadmap to ketamine. I think this is what Rupert Sheldrake meant by "morphic resonance". Language, much like genes, has the uncanny ability to proliferate its agenda like an organism. I for one am pretty skeptical about the idea of fairies/elves/entities or voices in trips, and have avoided interpreting my experiences as an encounter with an "other", but rather an encounter with self (or One), which I believe people are too often eager to confuse with "other". Just my opinion.

      I would suggest getting yourself a large tub of which can accomadate your smaller tubs. Cut 4 2" holes with one on each side of the tub cover with tyvec seal around edges with tape. Make sure they are about 3" up from the bottom just in case you want to use the big tub for sub some day .Place your smaller tubs inside and mist the sides of the large tub to get that humidity level up. Good luck and don't panic.

      Hello  keep on keeping on eventually it will work! from what I can see in the tubs they look a little on the dry side so I would try and boost the humidity. you would be surprised at what types of conditions mushrooms will grow. Way back in the day when I was going full tilt I did not use casing in my first endeavours and still made some pretty good flushes. The mean green happens sometimes however you should be making sure you are using sterile technique to a T. Make sure your grain spawn is always 100% colonized plus a week before spawning. Also are you pasturizing your bulk sub or sterilizing it? If your temps get too high during pasteurization it kills most of everything living in the substrate. This is not a good thing as you want to keep some of the beneficial microorganisms to fight off the bad aka mean green and other contaminants. For any bulk sub preparation it's recommended to pasteurize not sterilize. If you sterilize then the spawn must be spawned in a sterile environment to keep contaminants out then you gotta pray the spawn takes hold before any tams do. For this reason I only pasteurize. For now I would keep on caring for the tubs as you should with misting and fanning try to bump that moisture up a bit. You want to see some moisture condensing on the sides of the tub not so it's running and flooding the sub just so there are droplets of water on the sides.   I hope this helps in some way like I said keep on keeping on eventually you will be able to produce mushrooms in your sleep.  This tub here was never cased
