  1. I Know there is alot of controversy over this topic in particular. I wanted to start this thread for people to post their experiances with the shelf life of spore prints. How long have your prints stayed viable. Only spores that actually germinated after a certain amount of time please.Feel free to post your results.Take care Ryeguy

  3. The chemicals present in "shrooms" that produce the euphoric high are known as psilocybin and psilocin (and some trace similar compounds). When you eat shrooms, psilocybin is oxidized into a chemical called psilocin. Psilocin is then absorbed into the blood stream where it is taken to the brain.Psilocin has a chemical structure very similar to the naturally occurring neurotransmitter serotonin. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that cells in the brain (neurons) use to communicate with each other. Varying levels of serotonin will affect sleep, appetite, sensory perception, temperature regulation,
  4. Do not put more than 1-3 inches of water in your pc to do anything myco related. All alot of water does is add time to the event taking it to heat up. I usually only add water to just above the jar rack unless I'm doing half gallons or bags for two hours, then I place three jar rings under the rack to raise it a bit and still just add water to barely submerge the rack.It's all in adjusting your heat. Stove top elements will differ so it will take some experimenting on one's part to find the sweet spot. Start on high, place the weight when it steams off a bit and reduce to just above medium af

    how will lime affect your grow cause i forgot to add some whn i spawned some bags yesterday......i know fuckn idiot haha
  6. A mushroom is best harvested by being pulled off the cased tray or cake with a gentle twisting motion.Don't use a knive or scissors, this will leave a part of the mushroom behind, which can in turn contaminate and thus prevent subsequent flushes.
  7. Harvest can occur right after the veil breaks, up until full maturity when the cap becomes almost convex and begins drop its spores. You should wait this long if you want to make spore prints.Harvest cased trays all together over a course of 1 day for best results. If you have achieved an even pin set, your fruits should all become mature at the same time - meaning you can harvest them at the same time. Generally, if they are becoming mature at different times, this means you didn't have an efficiently colonized substrate or an even pin set.
  8. Yes, the caps of mushrooms do usually to contain more psychoactive chemicals than the stipes (stems) do This excerpt taken from Morphological and chemical analysis of magic mushrooms in Japan : ..... The psilocin/psilocybin contents in P. cubensis were in the range of 0.17–0.78%/0.44–1.35% in the cap and 0.09–0.30%/0.05–1.27% in the stem. Hallucinogenic alkaloids (psilocin and psilocybin) have a tendency to be contained in the cap more than the stem. Our results are in agreement with the findings of Wurst et al. [8] who found lower concentrations of psilocybin in the stem than in the cap
  9. The mushrooms that contain psilocybin and psilocin will not cause liver damage. There are other mushrooms that will cause liver damage if eaten. They contain toxins called amatoxins. The mushrooms which contain these toxins are mostly from the genera Amanita, Galerina, Lepiota, and Conocybe. Amatoxin poisoning is responsible for over 95% mushroom poisoning fatalities. Death is usually in 7 to 10 days due to liver failure. The cases related to psilocybin containing mushrooms causing liver damage are cases where somebody misidentified one of the deadly mushrooms mentioned above for one of
  10. The most potent species of mushrooms are likely the wood inhabiting species like Psilocybe azurescens, Psilocybe cyanescens and Psilocybe subaeruginosa. Similar in the alkaloid content are the dung inhabiting species Panaeolus cyanescens and Panaeolus tropicalis. Also very potent is the pasture growing species P. semilanceata but the cultivation of the later is extremely difficult. To a lesser degree, the sclerotia producing species, such as Psilocybe Mexicana (A-strain, and Jalisco), and Psilocybe Tampanesis are of good potency, and relatively easy to grow. Psilocybe cubensis is
  11. All active Psilocybe mushrooms contain the same main substances which are psilocybin, psilocin and to a lesser degree baeocystin and norbaeocystin. The amounts and proportions of those 4 key components varies among different species and strains. Alongside with those 4 main components there are many other substances, which by them self don't have a described psychoactive effect, but might very well have a slight modifying effect on the psychoactive properties of the key components.Another likely cause for the different effect of different mushrooms is the influence of the effect of stomach cont
