Psilocybe weilii is found under Loblolly Pine and Sweet Gum or in bermuda grass or fescue, often in red clay soil that is enriched with pine needles.


start there

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Damn, those sound like the natural conditions of my area

Do they do okay in low humidity/mild weather?

na, i dont think pine is a hard wood. im not really that good on that subject, but i know you can spawn them to grain in PF style cakes, then transfer them to wood chips like alder, apple, cherry, oak, mesquite...  They grow in the cold and best when kept outdoors.  Its probably too late this year as they would've had to of been started way earlier.  I would recommend alota research first. if this is one of your first grows, it might be better to give cubensis a try to get a little experience first. Weili is considerably harder to grow

i made the mistake of trying to grow weilii too right after gettn my first pcooker- i was facinated by all the pics from georgia hunters - and just thought id try it--------but it was just a waste of time- i had 20 agar plates all full - was doing alot of work and had rye jars just boomin with myco growth - but the transfer to bulk trays just never worked - i didn't keep at it - gave it 3 attempts - but weilii are found in a very selective environment - i believe it would be very very difficult to replicate indoors - - - - if workman says they are slow n difficult to fruit- Believe him:wink:        Do give it a whirl n please post back what info you can....Good luck

ps - cubes can be sooooo easy - don't get carried away with too much input - get some jars inoculated - n mix with homestead compost in a plastic tub from wally world - set it n forget it - youll be amazed at what you can get!! :wink:

i wish i could do cubes but i live in georgia and cant order spore prints. all i have are the wild weilii print specimens i found this summer/fall.

unfortunatly the only other species i can get my hands on are cube penis envys, and they sound even harder just to get the prints.


but im going to try something new, since all the weilii iv ever found was in sod im going to try a controlled sod square.



dude im growing some cambodians and northern lights(creepers) right now. if you want i will send you some prints. i dont have a problem with this. fuck i sent a quarter of p. ovoids to my boy in cali. if i can pull that of i should be able to pull a few prints off! hahaha pm if your interested bro.

Do you think using spores from weilii that grow directly from hard wood chips or white oak debri would be more beneficial than the red clay ones?

Also, did you experiment with the woodlands or the grass var?
