Habitat Shots/Photos. Australia. * 1
    #16164170 - 05/01/12 07:46 AM (8 years, 30 days ago)

I have asked a Mod if this post was against the rules. He cannot see why it would be, so here it is.

Basically i am asking for Australians to post shots of habitats where they find Psilocybe subaeruginosa.

Try to get a good idea of areas u should be looking for eg grasses, certain type eucalypt, water content, leaf litter density, soil types and the extent of the aussie Psilocybe subaeruginosa's range.

Not asking for locations maybe state if you would, just photos of the area and a brief description of the area like soil type, leaf cover (pine/euca), if close to creek, native forrest or plantation,woodchipbed(type of wood?), deep/outskirts or recent rain.

Hoping this can help others be more successful in their ventures as well. Have searched extensively and there doesn't seem to be anywhere near the amount of info n other country's hunting areas.
Cheers for the help.
Nox

**EDIT**
THEY DONT HAVE TO BE RECENT PHOTOS,as long as they are sub habitats all is good.

nice idea :thumbup: im sure this will help others in the search for Psilocybes.

this is at high altitude in the Adelaide Hills on a grassy hill side with lots of leaf litter and debris under Eucalyptus amongst bracken ferns. i have some others lying around that ill throw up later :smile:

Gumtrees, lots of twigs and bark and short grass. Don't go deep into the forest.

Is this for fear of getting lost, or do psychoactive fungi not grow in the deeper parts of the forest?

How dense can eucalypt forests get?

Are there any hazards we should look out for? eg. leeches, other wildlife, dropbears :grin:

This thread is looking great so far, I'm sure it will be of great help!

Thanks for this thread, I've been researching subs for a while and this thread will provide me with some great information.

Great post Invisiblelord of the gnomes.

Below are various habitats where I found subs in Hobart, Tasmania.

This was my first ever find - growing in my own garden.
http://

Growing from rich woody soil beneath a garden plant. Very moist soil, not much direct sun light.




These are from two different locations. Both growing from woody soil. Lots of grass around. Lots of gum leaves around also.




These ones come from my best patch. They grow amongst the grass in a playground. There is pine bark scattered throughout the grass. Also there is a garden bed with a lot of dead pine needles and grass which I also have a lot of luck with.


This is the place where I always start my seasons. Ferns and gum trees everywhere. Lots of grass also. This is a southerly facing hill with very moist conditions.


The majority of my finds are within 500 meters or less from sea water and are all within 10 minutes of my home.

Basically any location that has garden beds with pine bark, or lots of ferns is a good place to look. Start of at your local park and go from there.

Also, looking for indicator mushrooms is a good idea.

If I see Leratiomyces ceres I know I'm looking in the right locations.
(this is not an active mushroom)


This mushrooms grows in the same condition as subs and usually starts fruiting a few weeks earlier. If you come across one of these chances are that there are subs close by.

:laugh2:  If you copy/paste someones online status and it is set to "invisible" it copies that too, I have accidently done this before myself.


I seem to be unable to find any habitat shots on my PC to contribute. I often do dumps of old photos onto dvd, I'll have a look through those to see if there is anything there.  If not I'll snap some next hunt out for ya.

Some of my pics from previous seasons:

Most of my finds in are leaf mulch or grass - in naturally damp areas that are close to creeks and other water.

Enjoy:

Wow guys, beautiful pics.
I know there are more aussie hunters with pics to share. I have gone threw a few successful hunters galleries but i know there are more that other hunters dont publicly share.

Dont be shy, come and share with us your habitat pics.

In that order... :lol:

Na, it's just subs don't really grow in dark gloomy forests :smile:

They like a bit of sunshine from my experience but also some shade under gum trees mostly and certain grasses. You won't find them deep under ferns.

In my personal experience I have always had more luck finding them in woodchip garden beds rather than in the forest.

Don't get me wrong, I have found them in forests but they seem to be more sparse,
(one or two here and there) rather than the clumps that they seem to grow in woodchip.

And when you find a patch in woodchip there is usually more to be found close by, so keep looking!

I used to drive 40 or so minutes up to a mountain range to go hunting, and half the time returned with only a handful and more often than not, nothing. So I started looking closer at my local park where I Walk my dog.

I started searching the woodchip beds that the councils lay. And walla, what do you know, hundreds! And they had been under my nose the whole time. and this is all of 5 minutes from my house.

So I guess sometimes its better not to go too deep. Sometimes they're right under your nose, and once you find one, it's all on!

Just my 2 cents!

Happy hunting.

No local woodchip beds around here. If there is, its the bleached than dyed/stained woodchips and i hear they are no good.

I have a state forest/preserve that starts at the end of a few roads around town.
