    Some pics of another of my favorite species. i have a small counter top grow going right now, but just can't get the right pic with the cell phone.. damn it! these are mostly older pics, but they will have to work until i get the camera in the shop.

    potency notes: ime, and imo lol.. these are much more potent when grown on millet than on straw. i have had several experiences with millet grown fruits that rival or surpass the experience i get from our local azures. the straw grown fruits are extremely potent, but i have yet to be stuck to the floor for two hours after sampling them.

    enjoy!

    thanks! this is just a start.. i have tons of prints from cactu and alan i have yet to even start. i have been mostly consumed by the mexican species as of late, but i did manage to play around with some cubensis. i just took some white Falbino spores for syringes and i am also getting closer to releasing a new cubensis variety derived from a leucistic PESH. one more MS run and some cloning, then a few more runs and i think she'll be ready!

    That is great news! We have been working on new cube varieties here too.

    I have a kind of top secret project in the works and we have access to wild genetics from a couple members as well.

    Cyanara has been working on a variety called "blue magnolia"

    I myself have worked exclusively on PE for almost 5 years straight with the exception of advanced mycology side projects.

    It's great to have a new member like yourself with such interest to study the more rare/exotic species. :thumbup:

    I'm a big fan of this type of work bro!

    It is one of the main reasons this site was started, :hatsoff: A quiet corner for the more serious myco-connoisseur....

    I would do a 3:2 spawn/sub ratio with millet/wheat straw.

    It looks like TCO has some straw mixed in here. It might help the yield a little.

    Would you sterilise the straw Prof, or pasteurise?

    I would pasteurize it unless I had a means of spawning sterile straw, i.e. a flowhood.

    You can soak it for 2 hours in soap water and then rinse it clean. Then pasteurize it for 1-2 hours, then spawn your millet to it. Colonize and case it.

    It would be quicker to case the straight millet but I doubt the results would be the same.

    I could be wrong though,

    I have never grown these, let alone with a straight casing.

    I'm just working with what my instinct tells me.

    yep.

    that egg was simply a PF cake (millet) literally smashed into a little straw and cased. most of these CT projects are made from left overs of larger projects or contaminated jars like the Zapo's.
