|Does anyone know of a vendor that sells mexicana syringes? The type that creates scerlota. Which type is it? A or b? Thanks.|

| The Psilocybe mexiciana 'A' strain is the one that produces the largets amount of sclerotia of the three strains that are currently available.
It is available at www.sporeworks.com, www.micronmagick.com, www.sporebank.com, and www.shamanshop.com

What does sclerotia taste like? Should it be dried?

|Tastes like shrooms... The texture is like eating raw nut meat. It can be eaten fresh or dried.|

So you eat the sclerotia with the rye grass seed and all? Do people typically grow these strains to eat sclerotia, or is it rather used to inoculate spawn?

|No, you brush the substrate off... The stones grow kinda like strange potatos... You dump out the substrate on a tray, and sift through it picking the stones out, brushing off any loose substrate from them. Then you wash em and give em a gentle scrub with a vegitable brush... It's simply solid growths of mycelia.|

|Would you be able to fruit the mushrooms from a cloned stone Or will that only produce stones?|

| Stone producing strains can be a little hard to fruit, but not impossible.
Cloning a stone will produce a viable culture, you can inoculate more jars, the mycelia will grow out, and you will get more stones after the culture matures
