Return Growth??Cys
    #1133649 - 12/11/02 09:33 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Last year I found cys in several areas. I have returned this year and two major places I went to last year were covered up with new mulch. So it is obvious why they are not growing thare this year. But five other places where they were growing prolifically last year are dry this year. I have been fortunate enough to stumble on more in new places, but what is happening under the dirt in the place I found some at last year. The mulch they are in isn't completely decomposed so there are still nutrients around for them. Are they just dormant? Does the plant go through any shock when its fruit gets picked? I know the rains here are late compared to last year and less of it, but the ground is moist enough. Did the early cold spells cause them to hold back from fruiting? Since this is only my second year I havent been able to observe areas for long term growth. Can anyone explain on what may be happening to these places of last year?

IMHO cyan spots usually last for 2, maybe 3 years. Only one of the ones I had last year have sprung back to life but it has also been a poor season, respectively. Only the heartiest spots had been coming up or the spots with advantages ie. sprinkler systems, around streams, places that lock in humidity like ground cover and grass.  But it is raining now and things will change.  I have found the mulch the parks have been using lately is not ideal and will take time to leach out all the bad stuff which is probably why your other spots aren't going but there are still plenty of other spots. I'd suggest getting out there, with the rain brings the pickers. :grin:

Thanks for the reply. I havnt been to the parks this year. I heard there were lots of pickers everywhere. and few shrooms. So many pickers I hear it is pissing off the park people and they want to start using cedar everywhere. I was planning to go to the coast this weekend and take a look can anyone give me an update on the azure season?

A guy at the mall, yesterday, told me that he has some friends in Astoria, OR who have been picking P. Azurescens alot lately. Im guessing they were picking them in Astoria, I dont know. Also, areas around Mcleary, WA might be fruiting with P. Cyanescens. Thats about all I know of though, sorry.

Cyans are fruiting most everywhere in Western Washington if you look hard enough in the right spots.  Picked a bunch today in North Seattle.  :grin:

adding fresh (hardwood) mulch should be good for cyans . depending on how recent and how deep the spot was covered over there may still be a chance,keep an eye on it , and definetly check again next season .

im pretty positive that its either the middle or the tail end of the fruiting season for azures... in certain locations of course, astoria has long been known as a very fertile area... the pacnorwest is an ideal area for their growth tho... and bushs clearcutting of old-growth forests helps...

Thanks for the update on the coast. This rain is perfect. I found about 50 big cys today and left a bunch of pins near Northgate today.
