Panaeolus Cyanescens “Goliath”, psychedelic mushrooms of enormous size and power
Thes glass vials guarantee total hygiene as they are sealed with a rubber “septum“.Panaeolus Cyanescens Mushroom Spores
This membrane ensures the extraction of the spores in a aseptic and safe way, preventing the rest of the vial content from being contaminated. Panaeolus Cyanescens Mushroom Spores
In addition, we can use the vial spores to inoculate a flask of Mycomate thus creating a reserve of mycelium in constant development, which prevents us from having to buy and germinate spores each time we want to cultivate mushrooms from same diversity, accelerating and facilitating the process.

Panaeolus Cyanescens Goliath spores vial
Each bottle contains 0.34 US fl oz. (10 ml.) of spores in a solution that keeps them in perfect condition until the time of inoculation. Vials contain a special valve that facilitates safe extraction without contamination risk. Panaeolus Cyanescens Mushroom Spores
The concentration of spores is higher in these vials than in ready-made syringes, almost twice the amount per cubic millilitre. Life span is extended thanks to the glass with which the vial is made, which can be up to 24 months.
The trays were kept in the lower 80 to 86F in near fog-like conditions with plenty of in-chamber air circulation via a small fan and frequent ultra sonic mistings (you can’t easily overdo it if you use a thin casing since basically overlaid mycelium keeps any mold from forming on the casing). Heat was added by ways of a large bed of water with aquarium heaters in it. A fan blew over the plastic-covered, heated water and a Ranco temperature controller switched on and off the aquarium heaters to keep the chamber at the set temperature.

The casing fully colonized (overlaid which is fine for this species) after 2 days. I saw the first pin on day 7. I stopped all ultrasonic misting at this time, except as the RH controller needed to keep the RH above 95% (this was switched on and off with a Dwyer humidity controller… awesome gadget to own for growing). The fruits seemed to develop well at 95% RH and about 78F to 82F. Several more pins formed in days 8 and 9, but the overall pin set was not very impressive compared to other strains I’ve grown. All mushrooms were harvested on day 11 and 12 (as measured post casing). A couple of the fruits were freakishly large, as is characteristic of this strain. I would place the largest caps at about 2″ or even more in diameter. The majority were much smaller and completely typical looking.
Aside from the larger caps here and there and the fairly sparse pin set, I didn’t notice any difference from the other strains of Pan Cyans I’ve grown. I wouldn’t grow this one again because I didn’t see anything too impressive with it (unless they are super strong or something).
As an aside, all the aluminum trays were heavily pitted by the mycelium at the surface level of the casing. I have not noticed this before but maybe I just hadn’t noticed. I am not sure what’s eating the aluminum up like that. Panaeolus Cyanescens Mushroom Spores
How to use Panaeolus Cyanescens Goliath Spores
- Wear a mask and gloves or disinfect your hands properly
- Shake the vial well to mix all the contents
- Sterilize the syringe we are going to use
- Sterilize the septa on the top of the vial
- Remove about 0.1 US fl oz. (3 ml.) of spores with the syringe (0.1 US fl oz. (3 ml.) is enough for 1 US qt (1 litre) of substrate)
- Inoculate the contents of the syringe into the substrate, leaving drops carefully in different areas Panaeolus Cyanescens Mushroom Spores
