    Maybe somebody who gets a sheet of spores can tear off a print for me?

    For microscopy purposes only. Void where prohibited. Actual spore content may vary.

    Oh, it's all good. I didn't realize reservations were required.

    Instead of farming cacti you should sells seeds and spores for a living...

    No reservatiions needed mate it was just in the thread the other day people were asking me about spore prints from the wild libs and i set about it over the next week, i thought anyone who was interest had spoken uip then. With them being wild i wanted to make sure everyone had enough spores to play around with for cleaning up and shit so on each hunt i selected the best specimens and made a sheet per person.
    I was just checking the weather predict over the next week and it looks like i got 2 more chances to hunt before the snow/frost so iof you do want a sheet there is a good chance i could sort it out (dependiing on my own motivation to get out in the morning chill again).

    Once i get my adult Trichocereus to flower seeds will be an added option but at the minute it is just for the love and obsession of it, it is just at current expansion rates within 2 years i won't have time for any other job so i will have to start making a living from it or turn all Tyler Durton on myself and have a reg job by day and cacti farming fiend when i should be sleeping.

    Wild prints of all species tend to be popular. Having extra prints on hand could be useful.

    Best i can do, this is a satelite shot of the exact area (names removed for protection of site rules), these are the 6 mycellium beasts, the blank central area has had a lot of renovation over the last 10 years where a lot of outside substrate was brought in, i check regular but very few fungi of any kind have moved in yet

    You should go plant some cakes out in that central section.

    I shallow burried a cake of PESA Cubes (after its 2nd flush) back when they were legal in the top left corner of the pic but i have never found any fruits, all the outer part around the golf course has cattle grazing on it so it is an ideal habitat. This whole place is on a south facing slope i think this is the thing that makes it so perfect

    I don't thing cubensis will grow there, though I could be wrong.
    I meant liberty cakes. Plant a row of one beast's genetics pointed into the center, then do the same with the opposite beast.
    Or three of the six maybe, let them all interchange genetics.

    The grass on the outer part is rough sedge grasses and is around 30cm in length and is got loads of cow shit on it. If i was more skilled in the cleaning up of cultures i would give it a go but all my cult skills are very rusty nowadays, i keep meaning to make a mollases broth with a few hundred lib cap heads and liberally spray the same area but everytime i get back with fresh fruits i am knackered and convince myself i'll do it next time

    I'd use sterile water, not molasses for a spore spray. Just sayin'.

    Like i say mate my cultivar skills are very rusty, would not surprised if most the stuff i learnt is considered old hat, The broth i was thinking about is from Stamets with the sterile water and either dextrose or a basic sugar as an additive
