  1. Hi everybody! I recently started growing cubes and I believe my first flush (start to finish all alone) will be here any day now. So far everything looks and smells very healthy so, while not finished yet, I'm confident I will be able to replicate these results time and time again. Cubes seem very easy and as such was a great starting place. My question here is, what else can I grow? I'm interested, for the sake of this post, in other psilocybe species only. My brother and I are interested in branching out as most, if not all, of our experiences have been with the study of cubes only. I'm interested in obtaining something unique and learning about the different species and their characteristics/preferences along the way. I've read around a bit and Panaleous Tropicalis seems like a logical next step and not too different from Cubes, but I want your opinions and in a thread where I can respond and ask questions is ideal. So, if you HAD to give me an order of several other species to attempt and grow how would you order them and what growing method would you use or do you recommend? What do these other species need that cubes don't, or what preferences do they have i.e. inc temp, fruit temp, fae/humidity preference, etc... On a scale of most like growing cubes to vastly different then growing cubes what order would you put them in? Difficulty level? I am not opposed to attempting something vastly different from cubes but I feel a slow reach out would be easier than a giant leap.
  2. Hey everyone I'm starting over, on my posting methods among other things, now that I have a flush or two down from a few diff cakes I still obv consider myself a scrub at cultivation but not so blindly stupid to the terms and teks and how it all comes together. Any input on this topic should be constructive or feedback of experience, as I am in an ongoing learning process, like many of you(no dinosaurs pls I don't want to hear about what ur 20 year old Tek did for you on one rainy weekend years ago. If ya gotta be negative, at least make it something to work with! Now that I have completed the rant part; into experiments, recent, ongoing, or soon tbd. Hope many can learn thru my mistakes and vice versa maybe a tip or two along the way will save a strong flush or revamp a thought to be dead sub. Started with Pf Tek (brf cakes) Used PC 90min lowtemp Reliably sourced syringes Initially started noccing jars late Sept/October randomly thru January. Used space above fridge and top of the dark side of my closet when they started overfilling. Think we nocced close to 80 jars(pints) had issues with air inside, had mold removed, got a purifier hepa type for the house. I imagine I will not lose as many to Tams or failed nocc next time but I probably threw away 30+ jars of the 80 being unexperienced. realizing later, 10 or so of the tossed ones we're probably fine, just being too cautious at the time. Had to mix diff strains in sgfc's based off what was 100%noc first..so confusion was caused there somewhat but good for experimentation nonetheless. Today, there are 15p.e ready to birth, 4 Ecuador to break and dunk, a couple tams on the ones that saw decent fruits already dunked those last night in distilled with a splash of h202, I use iso and perox alot trying to find it's capabilities with myc, gonna set a planter up on the patio for contammed cakes, also getting 3 fresh 44qt FCs in the Martha. Last weekend I got everything I think I need to get subs and casing for bulk started, good brand wbs, no corn, no sunflower, fresh pack of coir lime etc who wants to help me smash out these PEs or advice on anything else so far, will post lots of pics and be more detailed in my future posts, without dragging on, guess this can be the start of my amateur grow log, pics are the first fruits from cake 3 in Martha posted below. B+ Setup basics: Sgfcs or the like in a Martha. 44qt tubs, 3-4" perlite strained lots of holes of course, was playing with polyfill and then leaving some open, for the totes I'm putting in today, will be trying plastic micropore tape(2 layers on bottom holes ,1 layer on lid holes, playing with 1-2layerson side holes, have small random spots of perlite fuzz recently, one light greenish a couple purplish, a grayish cobwebbyspot, going to bleach spray Martha and put everything clean back in later. Regarding perlite tho, have read where you can just strain it thru tap water..done that, the FC I prepped last night had the perlite strained then soaked in peroxide and water for a few hours then I restrained at sink and dumped in, also saw German guy talking about pressure cooking it hAha just too much shit. What to do next..

    Identification?

    I found these in a horse field. Wanna see if anyone could please help to identify?
  5. Normally I do a lot of little experiments with side by side test and never post anything about it cause it's not perfect science. I will also say I feel bad about never putting my data out there for the masses who do research before starting grows if I could have saved someone form a bad choice I'm sorry. Now what I did is knock up a lc with an isolate culture. Then after it grow it in many jars corn and oats. I took one colonized jars of each and spawned to a shoebox of straight coir and cased the top with 1/2 inch of pure coir. All done 7/6/17 Theory: Most growers feel corn has less myc cells around it and less food for myc to eat and fruit resulting in longer second stage spawn run and lower BE. Counter theory: Corn will perform at least 80% as oats and with 1/4 total cost of oats a suitable grain for growing. Measurements : Time is days colonized sub Time to pinning First flush yield. Total yeild : BE Contamination time and kind(blue molds love corn)
