Grow Log - And So It Begins!

We are blessed to have pretty plenteous Psilocybes in the field here for the picking. I have a friend who has some pasture acreage that doesn't seem to have any. Is there any possible way to introduce the common local Psilocybe onto a piece of ground it hasn't already colonised?

Well, provided the new habitat is roughly the same you might be able to transfer a patch of turf from one to the other.

Otherwise, you could culture them and make some spawn to spread around the uncolonised land.

What species do you get there? Most can be grown out on straw or other fairly simple substrates.

yep
the intolerance of the old order is emerging from the rosy mist in which it has hitherto been obscured.

The ubiquitous Northern temperate Psilocybe semilanceata. So finding a mycillium mass (presumably directly below a bunch of fruiting mushrooms) and digging up the whole thing to transplant is the most likely and direct means? The fact that it is wild, common and widespread suggests to me it might not need a whole lot of help or encouragement.

It's certainly the easiest. :bong4:
I think the best strategy would probably be to germinate some spores on agar, use that to spawn some pasteurised straw, then use the straw to spawn the area where you want the mushrooms to grow.

To be honest, I've not seen any succesful transfers of semilanceata between areas and only a couple of experimental indoor grows (which didn't fruit very well).

Are those petri dish lids? Maybe try those old prints on agar? That plastic gets pretty hot though. Maybe that and time killed them. No dunk and roll? Nice fruits though B. Didnt know you grew these.

Half are dishes, half are lids. :mrgreen:

Maybe, but agar work requires more cleanliness than I can usually be bothered with. :p

I'm suspecting there may also be stuff released from the plastic over time that isn't good for them.
The first couple of prints I used were fine, but they'd only been in plastic for a couple of weeks.

No, sometimes I'll case the top of the cake, but my needs are modest so I usually go for the "just dump them out & wait" method. :mrgreen:

If there are any animals in pasture you just contaminate their food with spores. Everything comes out ready to grow that way...

What I found interesting, other than your nice pictures, was that they go from the far right to full grown and add no new cells. They are just water penises.

hehehe
