similar to Golandoi or a pan.
professor, you said "soak the straw for a couple hours in soap water" is the soap just a wetting agent, or,....whats with the soap?
Yes, "wetting agent", you don't need to much.
thanks PP, needed to reassure since ive been getting weak wispy myc with some bacteria i can seem to shake off
who ever made this print provably wasnt very carefull, ill keep trying different sectors of the print to find some luck.
If you have further problems let me know and I will have to see about getting you some spores for scope,
Starting to be low action here at the advanced forum so i add a Semperviva growpic or 2.
Made this grow about.. maybee half a year ago maybee.
However i could never get them to full maturety because some bacteria in my FC, but they almost got spores....
Im soo sad they didnt..
But, thet were strong as ... idont know but very strong.
they look good mateo
They are beautiful! Thanks Mateo
@the Chosen One
Could you please give some information about your substrat, temperature and so on? That would be super nice! I have a print of the P. semperviva and want to give it a try next time...Thanks!
Anyway, very nice specimens! Thumbs up :-D
haha! i would probably ask Mateo. damn fine work right there!
my methods are pretty simple. these are probably (not reviewing thread lol) just PF jars using millet instead of brown rice.. but they do well on both. they can be crumbled and cased or spawned to shredded straw. i do like to add a lot of verm to my straw and now am finding the addition of sand very useful.. but everything in this thread is likely just shredded straw. oh. calcium. i always forget that.
temps for everything would be room temps. mostly around 70 degrees F.
if you take these to straw or a bulk sub, be sure and use a casing that is fairly contamination proof. bulk subs of this species can hang around and produce numerous flushes for over a year.
it's a pretty forgiving species, just a very slow fruiter. you should do fine
Yes indeed.....strong grow Mateo!
Very strong looking fruits with such healthy stipes.
Thanks for sharing,
At the time i did the semperviva grow i didn't have the slightest idea what i use for substrate so i used a very mixed substrate.
I was confused about the "secondary decomposer" thing, and i almost made a woodchips substrate.
I ended up mixing a lot of stuff.
Let me see now if i remember, straw,hay,cocochoir, fine alder woodchips and grass seed.
Cased with 50/50 pot flower soil and cocochoir.
I was kind of suprised i got so many mushrooms.
Thats awesome Mateo!
Grown on plain ryegrass seed several years ago. I find them equipotent with cubensis...
Wow....I only dipped my toe into the Semperviva torrent, but
that was enough to convince me that they are a good bit stronger
than typical cubes.
Nice grow in any case. :0)
It might also be the substrate. Ryegrass seed is not all that rich in nutrients, say, compared to millet. I'll have to try it again on Azure's 3:2:1 ryegrass seed:brown rice:steel cut oats + bran mix...
Millet and var convexa are quite a bit more potent than convexa without millet from my experience....
There is no suck thing as var semperviva, var semperviva is actually now var convexa.
This is funny, considering all the times that people try to feed
things like tryptamine and other substances to fungi to increase
Shhh! <hushed tone>add millet</hushed tone>
