Questions about psy cyanesans
    #2027277 - 10/21/03 01:03 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I live in Seattle and it is just starting to be harvest time here in the NW. The rains have been coming on strong so far. I have never cultivated ooms before so I am green to this. I am not so green to cys though. I am wondering if I can take some psy.cys spores make cake and spread the cake out around the city. Is it possible to do it this fall? I read how to do the pressure cooker thing and inject spores. How long before the mycellium grows. and if it grows will it be easily contaminated once in the woodpile? I have a few spots that I found already this fall and in some places the mycellium is all over the ground. Sometime the shrooms from underneath push the shrooms on the top out in clumps. Could I just take the clumps or shroomy dirt and replant them in places I want them, to grow? Putting newspapre or cardboard down near a bed , will that help the mycellium grow and spread out from the bed under the newspaper? Is there anyway to accellerate growth of shrooms? Is there a natural gas that initiates the growth of shrooms; like ethylene and fruit ripening?
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

> I am wondering if I can take some psy.cys spores make cake and spread >the cake out around the city.
In theory you could inoculate a PF cake, and spread the colonized cakes into wood substrates outdoors.
In practice you would have to obtain a very clean sporeprint from an outdoor soecimen, which can be hard to do, otherwise your cakes will contaminate.

> Is it possible to do it this fall?
Hardly, since it takes some time to colonize the cakes and also I?m not sure if it?s wise to start this before winter.
Early spring is the best time to spawn outdoor beds.

>before the mycellium grows.
Up to 10 days.


>and if it grows will it be easily contaminated once in the woodpile?
Once it?s in a woodpile, it should be ok.
The problems that are awaiting you come before, at trying to get clean colonized cakes.

>Could I just take the clumps or shroomy dirt and replant them in places I want them, to grow?
Yes, if you are sure it?s the species you want, you can replant them in fresh, uncolonized wood material.
Around 10-20 parts fresh material to old, colonized one.

I don?t know, try it.

> Is there anyway to accellerate growth of shrooms?
Outdoors in nature?
Except of keeping the beds moist, you can?t really do anything.
