Do P. Cyanescens or any others grow in MI
    #1285559 - 02/06/03 03:34 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I'm under the impression that there aren't any kinds of hallucinogenic mushrooms in Michigan. I live in northern Michigan and it sure seems like some kind of wood loving shroom would grow out here. I've searched but had no luck, so I had to go the PF route. Do they grow naturally, or should I do an outdoor patch?

Sorry, I guess I should have read the description of the forum a little better. This is the "Shroomery" though. The morels really are a nice treat in the spring, I always find the most in old, abandoned apple orchards. Why is that? Is the PH, or nutrients in the soil there really good for them or what?

Oh man, I'm getting anxious for the morels to start popping up around here too!  A nice dinner of fried morels sounds soooooooo damn good now :smile: ....  Here's some pics from last year, sorry for jacking your thread peruvian_spark  :crazy: .

Some Morchella esculenta


More Morchella esculenta found in a plum orchard I had dumped the water used to wash my finds with in the previous seasons, about 50 feet from the house I grew up in :laugh:.  The whole orchard was rammed with them a couple seasons ago....


Morchella semilibera and a couple Morchella esculenta

Man, that would be sweeet plato :smile:

Nice pix DH... lovely to see.

Since im in the sorta same neck of the woods as you are, what do you usually look for to find them around here?

Orchards? Burned areas? Ive heard both...Ive never found them, so I really dont know :frown:

I find them in many different habitats up here. The thing in the plum orchard was just a fluke as far as I can tell, that's the only time I've ever found them in an orchard and there are orchards all over the place where I'm from. I've also found esculenta, semilibera and elata on river banks/floodplains in the area. Huge amounts of esculenta seem to come up in the years following a flood, then slow down in the next couple years until another flood, but semilibera come up every spring in the same general areas. They like areas with cottonwoods. I dunno if that's because of some kinda mycorhizzal relationship or just because cottonwoods like riparian areas. As the season progresses, they move up in elevation, up in the pine forests of the cascades you can usually get a nice score of elata with a couple hours of hunting a few weeks after the snow melts off. I've found lots of elata in burned areas too, but not esculenta or semilibera. Latest I've found them was in mid august in a campground up in the mountains, about 4000ft in elevation, they usually start fruiting in late march-may in the lowlands here, depending on the conditions. Seems they pop up after a few days of highs in the low-mid 70s. I remember reading something somewhere about soil temps having to get to like 65 or something before they would fruit. Verpa bohemica (on riverbanks around cottonwoods), Gyromitra esculenta and Gyromitra gigas (up in the pines) all pop up shortly before the true morels and in the same kinds of areas, so keep an eye out for them. Also the semilibera pop up a bit before the esculentas, they're tough to see, but if you find some, there's almost always many more around. Esculentas are by far the tastiest though....

I find pan subbs in MI all the time in the summer. Also when the temps are right it is possible to find liberty caps. And I have also had alot of success with outdoor patchs of cubes from may to early september.

if logical reasoning cant fix your problems then for sure captn morgans will know how to solve them.

There's another pic I just found of the area around where the esculentas and semilibera above were picked. Can't see the river but it's about 100 feet past those trees. It tends to get flooded every year, I've been finding morels there (esculenta and semilibera, occaisonally elata) every season for about 5 years. Prime morel habitat.....
