Shrooms in Iowa?
    #8371382 - 05/07/08 01:08 AM (6 years, 7 months ago)

Hello, I am an Iowa native from a rural town. shrooms dont often come around my area very much and I am in dire need of them. So instead of wasting my time trying to find someone who has them, I have decided to go out to the cow pastures and look for them myself. Where can find them, and what are the species that grow in Iowa? I HAVE TO TRIP!

Iowa is a difficult place for mushrooms.


Your best bet is to look for Panaeolus subbalteatus

what would be the easiest way to find them? I'm around a lot of pastures and every summer my family bales hay. I was thinkin' about stealin' a hay bale from my pops and laying it out in a lawn and see what happens

Try straw instead of hay.

Every single day until you find them.

You sound like your vary inexperienced, me too. Just don't eat anything you cant identify. Shroom dealers in Iowa suck! at least the ones I dealt with. Just grow your own!:thumbup:

Is there a way to speed up the process? Or just let nature take it's course?

The PF method is vary simple. Even for us n00bs, especially if you just wanna trip for a few times.

I'm near iowa city, read up on subbs or resign yourself to searching for a source (or a trip to this wonderful college town lol)

I mite take ur advice on the PF method, I just read the growing guide and it sounds fairly simple, it just mite be kinda hard to hide but definitely worth a shot!

There is a good spot in this web site...... Its called the FAQ section. All of your questions that you have asked can be answered there. You wont find anything without being pro-active, so start searching.

it shouldn't be too hard to hide as long as you don't set everything up beforehand but just using it when you need it and stashing the obvious things (spores, syringes, mycelium) in good places
