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.
It's been a while since my last grow log. This time (for the first time) I wanna try something other than psilocybe cubensis. A couple generous members here helped me obtain some prints of Panaelous Cyanescens Hawaii and Psilocybe Mexicana Jalisco. I made up some malt yeast agar for the Mexicana and scraped the spores into a couple jars. Both look about like this: I also made some malt dung agar jars at the same time for the Pan Cyan. Scraped spores into two jars. All were started on 7/3/17. I saw the first signs of growth about 4-5 days later. I may try to inoculate a few more jars soon just in case I run into any problems with these.
