Hi everybody, I was put on to this forum by Researcher (also a newish member) and am really digging how well organised the info is here -- thank you all!  Looking forward to digging in and hopefully contributing something useful once I'm a bit less wet behind the ears.

Thanks everyone, and lol DirtBagDan!

Quick question from a newbie, but I'm keen to add some thoughts to Researcher's thread here but can't figure out how -- there's no text box at the bottom of the page.  Feeling very thick; can anyone enlighten me?  :)

I think you just need a couple more posts, in this welcome forum?  I think it is 5 posts then the training wheels are off. :thumbs_up: maybe a mod can correct me.

Aha, thanks.  Thought it would be something like that but couldn't find the rule anywhere.

Sooo.... this was interesting.

Lightning Makes Mushrooms Multiply

Lightning strikes can more than double some mushroom crops, according to ongoing experiments that are jolting fungi with electricity.

Possible commercial applications for growers, also wondered if it would help some of those harder to impossible to fruit indoor varieties??????

Ha you have a knack for finding these cool things.  Apt username!  Do you know if they've published anywhere?  If it's the E field alone that's doing it, that just might be practical to manipulate for a hobbyist.  If it's the current though, that'd be more of a pain.

      I am confused on this comment. When the mushrooms grow they won’t all grow at the same time. I am confused. I don’t pick them pick right before the vail breaks and before they release spores. Can u explain the answer a little more for this newbie?  Thank ya!!

      Hooray, I can finally chip in!  Let me start right out by saying: this is a very cool idea. I have been musing for a while on how to create a cubensis growth system that places psilocin production under positive selective pressure, without having to actually assay every individual, and what you've come up with is by far the best route I've considered. I definitely think it's worth a try. I'm not as sure as you that psilocin / psilocybin are actually involved in the HSR; I think it's just as likely that it's the increased trp flux that improves heat tolerance through downstream components, and the increased psiloc* levels are just a simple consequence of more trp. Regardless... the question is how to actually translate this idea into a selective program. This is where I have to do more reading, as my experience is that this is quite organism-specific. I think the most ground would be covered by multiple cycles of mutagenesis-growth-selection, but the specifics of mutagen and selective pressure are very hand-wavy right now. But in summary -- nice find!

      Ouch, glad you're ok. I've worked in both microbiology and cell biology labs. In micro they flame and don't use gloves. In cell biology they use gloves (and a shitload of 70% EtOH) and don't flame.  Never the two shall meet -- I've been reliably told that a Class II cabinet + fire => a very bad time.
