Growing Azures Indoors
    #1121011 - 12/08/02 02:04 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

When I read that growing Psilocybe azurescens is very hard indoors, is it just because of the low temperature requirements?

And are they supposed to be hard to fruit... because the mycelium seems to be growing very rhizomorphically.

It`s primarily a temperature thing.
I`m busy with Azures and Libs at the moment, I infact allready managed to get the libs to form primordia on agar.

It's thought that azure has some reliance on soil bacteria for pinning, so it's hard to fruit in trays even outside, you really need the bed directly in the ground.

I`m trying a mixture of woodchips, organic compost, Dung, straw spawned with a higher ratio of millet.
It`s all worth a try.
Regardless of what comes, experimentation is the birth of all genius.

Do it in a large aquarium. It can be done that way.

Well right now the mycelium and cardboard are in a plastic tub for colonization. Next it will be covered in woodchips, best to try Eric's tek first, then experiment later.

I hear that theu would fruit at lower room temperature, just slower than normal.

I just start them inside, and when I got enough mycelium, I move it outside.

Outside right now, it is about 20 degrees. If the grow room is kept at around 55 to 60, problems are not expected, but we'll see.

Yeah... 20?F is a little too cold. Its best to start em in the spring so they can be ready for harvest in the fall.

Well this climate wouldn't allow for azure growth even when it is the correct temperature. It's too damn dry, so indoors is the only way to go.

I've been taking temperatures throughout the house, but it has been a while since I measured the basement. To be honest, I completely forgot about it. But I think the bedroom will be fine for now, sleeping in a 60 degree room isn't too bad :P

I don't have any personal experience with culturing Psilocybe Azurescens, but I have a friend that has been playing with it for several years. He has been quite successful this year and I have been following his progress.

The preparations he has made started years ago. He began by collecting live mycellium from the Astoria area. He took a large stick of wood and drilled holes throughout it, then packed the holes with mycellium. Once the stick was fully colonized he placed it in a large cardboard box and surrounded it in wood chips. When the spawn and spread thick into the wood chips he removed them and filled the box up again with mixed chips around the mother log. This process was repeated several times. He has since used the spawn chips to start patches anywhere that seemed appropriate.

This last spring he buried the mother log near an old tree stump in his front yard. He spread spawn chips in a 6x6 area and covered it with layers of dirt. He topped the area off with a layer of hay. Last I saw, there were giant Azurescens popping up all over the place.

If this continues, he will be harvesting a decent crop with minimum effort with about a 9 month turnaround over all. This is significantly better than the two to three years it can take to establish an outdoor Cyanescens patch, not to mention the potency and nature of the Azurescens high is in my opinion far superior (I find the cyanescens experience to be markedly different than the Azures or Cubes).

In Paul Stamet's "Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World" it is stated that outdoor Azurescens beds have been established "with ease" in California, Oregon, and several other states.

Psilocybe Azurescens are very newly discovered species, they are the most potent of any known psilocybes, and they appear to adapt quickly and easily to environments drastically different from their point of origin. I think we have a winner!

Anyone who has been amidst this King of the Psilocybes in the wild probably knows the strange intensity that their presence brings. They have an element of fantasy to them that is remeniscent of the Fly Agarics. They are fairly large and a wonder to behold.

I just measured the temperature in the basement and it's hovering around 55 degrees. Maybe the mycelium will have to be moved there upon full colonization.

Genius! All you'd have to do is add a foot or two of soil to your basement. If the floor is concrete, it would be cold enough even if it was in the middle of summer. I'd try that, but I don't have a basement.

Hahaha, no I'm not going to make the basement into a mushroom garden, just put the mycelium down there in a container for a more stable temperature.
