you'll probably want more than just pics if you're planning on eating your finds though. be sure to get a good field guide.

Since when does Psilocybe cubensis grow in New Jersy? It's listed in the FAQ... New news to me. Last I heard they didn't grow north of TN.

I don't think I added it. I can certainly take it out. I'd be pretty surprised if somebody found them there.

This may seem like a REALLY dumb question but why do cubes grow down south rather than up north in the US? If it's because of the weather than theres certainly a chance of finding cubes up here because I remember a few summers ago the weather was in the 90's and it wus very wet out for a while.

That's not really a dumb question.

They probably don't survive in the more northern areas for the same reason many plants don't - it's too cold in winter. Since Psilocybe cubensis seems to grow only in areas where it almost never gets really cold, it would appear that none of their forms (spores, mycelium, whatever) are capable of surviving being frozen.

You could probably work out a reasonable map of the US where they might be found by looking at a USDA hardiness zone map.

Comparing the list of states in which Psilocybe cubensis has been found with the USDA hardiness zones leads me to guess that they like zones 8 and up (roughly). Based on the USDA information, that implies that they can't handle it if the temperature goes below about 10 or 15 degrees F.

So, if you live in zone 5, as I do, you shouldn't waste much time trying to find Psilocybe cubensis in your area.

And if you live in zone 8 or 9, if you want to find some, you need to find habitat that's correct. That helps eliminate desert areas which might match the temperature range.

Hopefully, that helps answer your question.

Happy mushrooming!
