suggestions on starting an outside patch
    #1966623 - 09/30/03 05:52 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hows it going everyone. Since the weather in LA seems to be getting a little cooler I've decided to begin an outside patch. I was wondering what mushies fruit best in zones 5,6,7. That seems to be my area of growth temp. Since i have plenty of compost i would prefer to use that, but manure etc. shouldn't be a problem to get. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Millipedes like mycelium=you don't like them. Animals will generally only fuck w/ your patch in the beginning. It will still do it's thing though. Bugs will eat all of your shit up though.

Not necessarily. True, the bugs like the mushies, but they can be controlled.

I found some tips on controlling millipedes

maybe these along with a spray around the peremeter would do the trick

Umm, a little something the zones you mentioned- those are hardiness zones- ie, how cold it gets.  Cubies grow fine in tropical locations too, which would be almost off the USDA chart.  I put some links to find out more about your zone at the end of this post.

I'm no mushroom expert, but it seems that both temperature and humidity are important to where they will grow in the wild.

My semi-educated guess would be that it's going to get a little chilly for cubensis this winter and possibly too mild for cyanescen or azurescens.  I'd also guess that you can get some  These comments are sure to draw out someone who knows more than I do. :wink:

I'd think as long as you keep them shaded and wet, you could grow cubensis during the summer, too.

Of course, here is l? Faq.  It has better answers than me anyways.  Go figure.

If you're near LA, you should be anywhere from zone 8-10- pretty warm winters.
Here's a link for that:

Here's a link to a heat zone map and an explaination of how to use it.

I would say try a strand that is good in cool weather if you have nights that are too cool in your area (maybe the tazmanian strain)
otherwise if you maybe found a way to cover that patch at night to insulate it I could see that working. With some coir and a sprayer on your hose you should have no problem maintaining humidity... maybe even try a psilocybe thats native to the southern cali area (any help anyone ? )

I would guess that Ps Cyan would fruit down there in the winter. Getting thy mycelium to grow should be very easy and getting a bed of wood chips/sawdust spawned and colonized should also not be too hard with a bit of help from occasional watering. The trick would be watching it - LA has cold snaps in the dead of winter and if the water level is also good from natural rain or sprinkler help, and you have perhaps some grass growing on the bed to keep the humidity up I would expect cyans would fruit. Maybe not every winter as it doesn't always get cold enough, but I'd bet the odds are better than 50/50!
Note - from my experience in the NW if you start a bed now you won't get fruit until next winter
