    No one is posting dates but people are messaging me and asking when the next meet is. How about the 2nd or 9th of February? I hope this new rotation around the Sun finds you all well.

    Mandrake cultivation discussion

    Hi sagiXsagi. I procured the seeds form somebody in Queensland, Australia. Whether or not that is their origin I'm unsure. Yes, these are autumnalis. I've yet to find out if that cutting took, it looks fine except it's grown no leaves yet. I'll know more once the weather cools. No seeds as of yet. Something keeps eating the flower. I'll keep you in mind if I ever get seeds. Thanks for your interest. I really enjoy growing these plants.

    Encouraging pine lovers!

    There is some procedures online on how to inoculate Pinus species with mycorrhizal Lactarius deliciosus slurry. Here's one link>>>https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/Production-of-Pinus-halepensis-seedlings-inoculated-Díaz-Carrillo/2c6252310cefe5bfef6330c1d72f027f041e8516 Look into Blewits, or Lepista nuda. It grows among leaf litter, similar to the ingredients you have on hand and is a superior edible to the ones you're asking about. Also Stropharia rugosannulata.

    What's the consensus on these?

    It's definitely a cubensis mushroom. I have no doubts about this. It's possibly Leucistic.

    Panaelous id

    Hi archigen. I'm quite sure that these ones are Panaeolus foenisecii. They will have Brown coloured spores. You can check this by doing a spore print. You do this by cutting the cap off the stem and then placing the cap onto some tinfoil or white paper for at least 6 hours. After this time you remove the mushroom cap and there should be a spore deposit left on the paper. Panaeolus cinctulus will have Black spores.

    Meet up: Melbourne

    Not sure if anybody turned up over the weekend? I got a few texts about it. I was away and didn't think there was a meet due to nobody confirming the date that was proposed. Sorry if anyone was put out. We need to organise another, confirm the date and then spend a lovely day together. You know you want it. Someone make a date and let's do the do-si-do.

    Panaelous id

    Panaeolus cinctulus is highly likely. @SayN If you care, these are now known as P. cinctulus.

    What's the consensus on these?

    I see Blue brusing, an annulus with purple spore deposits and the gills fit P. cubensis. The pins are consistent with P. cubensis. The gills are mature but not overly so where the spores have built up. I stand by my id.

    This section needs a "show wild finds" thread

    @Gimli Those are Protostropharia semiglobata @Average Joe Your mushroom is an Agaricus sp.

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    Grafted this TBMC, gifted by an awesome individual, onto a pedro stock.

    Best Substrate for growing Cubensis

    If you're a beginner then you can use Brown Rice Flour. Research PF Tek and you'll learn how to do that. There's other ways that require a pressure cooker, and various grains, like rye, oats. All I can suggest is research at this stage. Hard to give the best ways without knowing how much you know of basic cultivation. Good luck.

    21st is fine. Seeing as obtuse hasn't been able to make the last few, and that date seems to work for him, let's lock it in. ??

    Meet up: Melbourne

    I'm not worried about dates so lock one in. I'll move mountains to come along.
  18. karode13

    What's the consensus on these?

    Psilocybe cubensis.
  19. karode13

    Keeping my eye on this!

    If you're curious then it will pay to return. They don't look much like cubensis pins though.
  20. karode13

    anyone care to enlighten me ?

    It's a Resupinate fungi. Ceriporia purpurea. https://bie.ala.org.au/species/c7c6b698-15c6-424b-ac69-d710dd99ff7c

    Mushroom ID on Beach in Thailand

    With the woody material in the pictures and Pink Gills I would say this is a Pluteus sp.

    Meet up: Melbourne

    It was worth it to catch up with those who came. With that said, Spring is just around the corner. I propose another meet in 4-6 weeks. What say the collective?

    Seeding a paddock with cow pats

    Low tek version of this would be to add a load of spores into some water and broadcast spray this over a paddock used for grazing. Spores enter the beast via ingestion of grass. Nature should take over the rest if favourable conditions are present.
