  1. Hi everyone! I just did my first inoculation a week ago. We have zero growth thus far? Should I suspect the spores I bought were garbage or should I wait longer? If they are garbage, I'm wondering if I need to make all new cakes or should I buy new spores and reinoculate? I'm super bummed. The jars and cakes look exactly the same as they did the day we made them. Thanks for any help!
  2. Hello, I am looking for any tips or wisdom you may have to share. Bot my first grow but first in a long time. We host a huge Mushroom themed party every year. This year I decided to grow and provide my own. I miscalculated the time it will take and now I am wondering if there is any chance of fruiting in time. Party is 3 weeks from today, I just put my mini monotubs of PE together last night using shredded BRF cakes. I didn't realize PE is a slow fruiter. I am wondering what steps I should take to try to have my best chance at meeting this deadline? Any advice? Also, I am in Michigan right now the weather is around 80 degrees. Can I put my tubs in the garage to finish colonizing? I guess I am just looking for any suggestions. What would you do in this case? Is there anything I can do in 3 weeks time? I also have Agar plates, Bags and Boom blocks going but the bags and blocks are taking awhile to colonize and all of these are PE. Thank you for your time and consideration!

    Grow Log #3

    Day 1: Made 24 Quart Jar SHIP lids.
  4. This is my first agar Clone from a nice PE cluster. Transfered this over a month ago . The blue piece is the tissue. Is it supposed to look like that ?
  5. About to inoculate some rye bags with penis envy... what's to be expected? Or is a cube, a cube?
  6. Hey, I want to clone some of my penis envies to LC, and I've been using the method lately with normal shrooms where you stab the stem of the fruit body with a sterile syringe and then shoot the piece of stem into your LC. It's generally a fast and easy method. Penis envy however seems to have a different type of stalk from what im used to. it's more spongy? I did the syringe method and i didnt seem to get any flesh into my LC, and only sediment which im guessing was inside of the stem. Would this syringe method still work if I stab the cap to get a piece of meat instead of the stem? Thanks
  7. Hey, I'm getting ready to harvest my first flush of penis envy. I'm not too experienced with this strain. I can't seem to be able to find the information online, but for penis envy, do you have to re-case or patch the casing layer after dunking? I know PE is more casing dependent than other strains. What is the best way to go about this, scratch off casing after dunking then re-case completely or just patch? or just add another layer on top of the old? My first flush came in quite weird, a lot of huge mutant blobs. I've been reading this can be somewhat normal for penis envy when not using an isolate on the first flush. Hoping to do the second flush correctly so I can get a good clone. Thanks!
  8. Hey, I have been using a 60qt tub (with no holes, just misting and fanning 3-4 times a day like a dub tub) to grow penis envy in. The substrate was cased with 50/50+ (and it is lined with a trash bag) right before being put into fruiting conditions after the sub was fully colonized. some of the lining did seem to separate from the sides of the substrate. It started pinning the other day, but only on the sides where the lining separated.why is this? i keep the casing layer adequately moist, and have been misting and fanning regularly throughout the day (making sure the top and sides of the tub are misted as well). I have since turned the tub into a monotub with 6 holes and pink fish filters in the holes for FAE because the dub tub method doesnt seem to be working properly here. was i missing anything here or is this a normal thing for penis envy?
  9. So on 2/4 I spawned 3 quart rye berry jars to bulk (verm, hpoo, calc, etc), temp @ 80 degrees. The sub is kinda thick and I made it a tad above field capacity (PE like moisture). I uncovered to take some pics and it looks like the Myc is working its way thru the sub (joy).... My question is when should I case it? when the entire surface is covered? or can I case it now?

    Multi strain, mono-tub madness

    Title Kinda states it all, Have multiple strains Knocked up By MS, bad weather destroyed all my cultures so i am restarting. Should all be ready to go in 2 and 3 weeks. Using WBS and Rye grains to look at differences in times and potency, takein the golden teacher to Agar as too the MS syringe is tamed. 66qt tubs, not much more to be said at the moment either than, this will be a large grow and will start posting pictures of progress for educational purposes when my master jars are about to be G2G. i have 16 master jars and plan setting them all to 10 jars (160 Qts of spawn). lets see if we can get pans to run strong in a mono, thats really all i care about, spore prints of the cubes will be available for trade or just for fun , Pans are up in the air as to experimental on my part Ask questions ill answer to the best of my ablity if your curious, until then, you wont here back from me happy trails

  12. Hi, I've inoculated Penis envy (PE) in november. First time grower. Cakes were ordered from a popular website (I will do mine next time, but for the sake of giving you the most accurate information) Spores were ordered from a liable source. Light : I gave them light, didn't go for the total darkness for weeks. Something around 12/12, or maybe 10 light, 14 darkness. Temperature : 20 Celsius only for the main part. (68-70 F) Didn't want to put a heating mat under it for different reasons. Took them about 8 weeks to fully colonize and then I got some weird looking mycelium. I know that PE can do blobs, but I can't find any solid information about it, especially on cakes. Smell : When i opened the jar, no smell. After adding some water to get it out more easily, the characteristic mushroom smell came to my nose. Hooray! Am I ok with my thinking "If it quacks like a duck, walk like a duck but smell Psilocibe mushroom, then it is a mushroom" ? Dunking : 20-24h each cake Chamber : made a shotgun chamber with perlite Blobs : I kept a few, dried it and stored it, waiting for any knowledgeable input The others are still on the cakes. A few of them overnight became oddly blue... :/ As we speak, the weirdest jars and/or incomplete colonization are still waiting patiently. Didn't want to put them in the same SG chamber. I have a few things that remain unclear to me : 1) what can I possibly do with a stalled jar ? (I know that I should use with mouth mason jars btw, bought some for the next experimentation) 2) What am I looking at ? Is it PE, could it be something else? What do I do with the blobs? 3) Do you consider blobs as mycelium or as mushrooms? I've read that a shocked mycellium can become blue temporarily, but what about a blob getting dark blue overnight? More pictures to follow soon (featuring dark blue color that came out.... out of the blue) badummm tssss Thanks for your help

  14. First inoculated about 60 days ago. Sat at temps around 82-84 degrees. Never shook them. Looks like the bottoms are slow to cover. I’ve heard PE are slow to colonize. Wasn’t expecting to get this far. So....should I wait for the bottoms to cover or are they ready? The middle looks thick and covered. Sorry my camera sucks! I have 3 jars like this. Since PE is a moisture lover should I dunk them after I birth them?

    First ever grow, penis envy's

    hey guys i got some penis envy's i inoculated on christmas day. just wanted to show some progress and have someone take a look at this little deformed guy i got.
  16. Here are 2 different tubs of PE where I'm using a smaller tubs I've noticed that around the edges it is shrinking considerably even though I have moisture around the tub, here is a picture to see what you guys think and any advice. Any tips would be great thank you.

    Penis Envy contam

    Growing a Mono tub of Penis envy and unsure if this is contaminated, as most of these yellow clusters which are few but still evident are troubling me. Also have a very small spot of fuzz which is possibly from humidity.
  19. Here is my personal list of highly attractive and potent cubensis strains. IME., in my experience ... Here is my list of top ten strains of Psilocybes cubensis #1 -Koh Sumoi supers #2-Penis Envy #2.5,or albino penis envy aka APE #3-Ban Phang Ka #4-GOLDEN TEACHERS #5-PF Strain #6-Escondido #7-Jedi Mind Fuck #8-Ban Hua Thannon #9-Treasure Coast #10-Mexi-Cube Bonus strain ........ #11 - Palanque
  20. So imn flying kinda blind here or i was and i was wondering if any of the old pros out there in TV land had any advice or personal tips on the growing if the fabled Penis Envy everyone is always on about. I have never tried to do this and now have a tub of mushrooms that i keep second guessing at every instance.

    Upside Down Dick 2

    From the album: Mycopathic Albumz

    Penis Envy that grew upside down!
  22. So I started the fruiting process a few days ago. This first flush has been coming in rather haphazard with some large ones starting early and little pins everywhere a few days in. I understand that is sometimes normal and it's the second flush that's most often a "canopy" type situation but I'm just not sure when to start harvesting these suckers. Another problem is that I've found no clear guide as to when to harvest PE. I've heard to harvest just the as veils break a little, when you see the white line around the veil, when the shaft gets wrinkly near the gills, and when the gills become dark (hard to see that in a tub)... which of these should I go with? All of them? Should I pick them individually as they mature or wait and pick them all at once? Any help you guys could provide would be supper appreciated! Thanks! Day 63: Fruiting Day 2 - 9/15 @9am Day 65: Fruiting Day 4 - 9/17 @ 7am (today)

    Possible mold?

    Hi so I started fruiting my penis envy A+albinos a week ago and I noticed some of the caps look strange and there is a white fuzziness at the base of the mushrooms. Is that mold? are they still healthy? This is my first grow, can someone clarify what is going on with these guys?
  25. ok this is my first grow log, wish me luck... this grow actually started a month ago and i dont have pics of every step ive taken but i will try to fill in all the gaps as i go. i started with a ms pe syringe i used to noc 10 jars of wbs, once they colonized i used one of the jars for g2g transfers to 8 more jars and the rest were spawned to a mix of coir, verm, gypsum and a bit of lime. these are pics of the first flush...it started with a bunch of blobs and i thought i had verticillium but they cleared up and finished quite nice.
