  1. Hey folks - I collected a few wild specimens of what people around here call the 'rosy' or 'winecap' agaricus which we have deduced is actually Agaricus austrovinaceus. I cloned several and one took quite well and was transferred to a medium-sized bag of compost. When this colonised it was buried in a garden bed and in June 2014. to my surprise after so long the bag fruited after heavy rain last week. Schweet!

    Gymnopilus junonius

    Notice something interesting on some Gymnopilus junonius at a local park. I stuck a pin the cap a couple of places and in one or two locations the next day there was clear blue staining...

    Medicinal Cultivation Laws

    If they arent on the aqis list you cant import them but i dont think non list species are illegal to sell or posess. As an example 'white chestnut mushrooms' and maitake are not on the list but people grow and sell them at markets

    syd barrett's mental condition

    I know its oft debated and probably debated to death and there are so maby ignored victims of the various sinister heads of mental illness but... im a massive fan of Barrett Floyd and barrett solo work but i must admit i never quite got the solo holo void that he quickly became until i saw his lack of 'emotional affect' in this video. it really does shake me to the core and ive known numerous drug induced psychosis experiencers. But not with those blank eyes.. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w4aAgFnZgQ0#

    syd barrett's mental condition

    The thing about it for me was how social and interactive he was before his decline. I wonder - can someone get very late onset As(d)?

    syd barrett's mental condition

    This clip seems to suggest what Micheal Stipe always suggested -these three really just exploited Barrett for their own careers

    Wish people would stop spouting pseudo bullshit

    The truth is - there is no truth bar what you find applies you AND even then it should always be applied with a heavy dose of doubt

    Wish people would stop spouting pseudo bullshit

    This op is bullshit. The problem with quoting any medical research of any kind is that it only ever applies to the cohort examined within the parameters and variables of the study. people generally run in opinion bias and then look for studies that back that up. but in truth no position or contention is a sacred cow; all can be deconstructed with new and better research.

    P.Euacalypta print

    It is possible you may have stumbled upon another undescribed species. Ps aucklandii has been reported in NSW although never verified. For years people have been incorrectly reporting Psilocybe alutecea as Psilocybe tasmaniana (the "species" that Roy Watling didnt even submit one type specimen before publishing. http://mushroomobserver.org/observer/show_observation/68266 there are other undescribed blue stainers. A coldcweather Panaeolus was found just last year. post photos of your finds.

    kinf stropharia fruited indoors

    A good friend of mine fruited this tasty SRA indoors off coir and straw chaff cased with sterilised coir mixed with garden soil for the bacteria/microbes. This is an isolate from a wild print that pins on agar:

    P.Euacalypta print

    But that is just it btw - the 'racial' differences in subaeruginosa are strikingly non existent. the only subs that look unique are from SA
