Cultivation / Re: Edible to cultivate as azurescens?

I would go with wood chips or grain.

If this is your first grow I wouldn't be too concerned with potency just yet.

I agree, the first concern should be to get them to grow at all.

No, leave them alone, it is now too late to enlarge them if you want them to fruit this autumn.  You can enlarge them next March. The bed might look completely colonized on the outside, but the mycelium has to penetrate through the wood chips, and this takes time.

Hard to tell without seeing it.

Mycelium death for P. cubensis has been established at 106F, but you shouldn't keep it it a higher temperature than 80F for best results.

A feed store could have rye. Or you can use wheat, it is similar to rye.

Rye Berries are the same as rye grass seed and/or rye grain.

Rye grass seed is NOT the same as rye grain and can not be used for the same purpose.

Ryegrass seed is seed of grass plants meant to start lawns (Lolium perenne). It is used for producing sclerotia of for instance P. mexicana.

Rye grain is the seed of the rye plant(Secale cereale). It is used for spawn or substrate.

Ryegrass seed on the left, rye grain on the right:

The blue dust could be an added pesticide, possibly a fungicide, this you definitely don't want.

Lower the temperature towards 70, apply a very thin casing on top of what you have, and spray and strands of mycelium coming trough  the casing with short bursts of water spray.

If you already have grain spawn and you use 2 strains to inoculate one bag it is unlikely one will prevail. What is more likely to happen is that each strain is going to colonize isolated portions of the substrate and won't grow together to one big block. The result will be that when it fruits, you will have many smaller mushrooms fruiting from the various portions of the substrate, perhaps even at different times,  instead of a normal flush.

Cultivation / Re: Using fluorescent to grow shrooms?
« on: May 25, 2008, 04:34:12 AM »
You can use either  fluorescent or natural light for the fruiting phase. You don't need light for the colonization phase.

If you are unable to find or buy a pressure cooker, you can also sterilize the jars using a big pot with a lid.
In this case steam the jars for 1.5 hours in a pot lid on. Use only approximately 1 inch of water at the bottom.
You might have to add some water to the pot during steaming due to evaporation.

No, as long the sun is not so strong to dry the bed out.

According to wikipedia "Pure xenon short-arc lamps have a "near daylight" spectrum. The light output of the lamp is relatively flat over the entire colour spectrum."

So it should be ok.

« on: May 16, 2008, 12:24:51 AM »
So I know that you need to put 1-1.5 ml of the spores into each jar. But since there are four holes, how do I balance that out? How many ml. should I put in each hole?

Thanks to the achievements of algebra we can figure this pretty easy nowadays.

1 ml / 4 holes = 1/4 ml/hole = 0.25 ml/hole

Cultivation / Re: Casing Question...
« on: May 15, 2008, 04:35:28 AM »
I never mist the walls of the container, I always mist the casing directly. Just don't overdo it, the casing should be moist at all times, but it shouldn't be soaking wet for more than half a minute after you misted it. If it does, then you misted too much.

Are you sure it's green and not blue? If you wipe it gently off with a white napkin, does the green stick to the napkin? Then it's mold, otherwise it's bruising.

Psathyrella or Coprinus genus, non active, most  likely not edible.

From what I know there have been many problems with in the past.
