Cubensis in NC
    #2280625 - 01/28/04 01:39 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

How abundant are wild psilocybe cubensis in North Carolina? Would you say they would be growing around mid-February-March or are they more of a fall mushroom? Lastly, I've heard that identifying these mushrooms was as easy as seeing if they 'bruised blue'. Is this true? I just want to be as safe as possible, thanks.

I am from near that neck of the woods, but not NC itself. I would guess (without researching it at all) that if Cubies do occur in NC it would be in the Southern part around the coast. You definitely are not going to find any this time of year, wait until warmer weather. You would also probably have better luck looking for Gymnopilus species or regular old Amanita Muscaria.
Good luck, don't eat anything without a positive ID.

a simple search would clear this up for you.
Which shrooms grow wild in my area?
when can i find shrooms?
Although some claim that there are cubies growing in NC my experience has been contrary. They would also need weather that is much hotter than you describe...NC in feb or march is still too cold! If there is any hope it would be from Greensboro to the coast, in either may-june or august-october (depending on the fall)
the reason i have hope is that NC is inside all of the climate zones for cubies, although i don't think it spends long enough inside comfortable cubie growth parameters.
Also you should be very carefull if you are even going to think about eating a wild shroom without experience as a guide! there are many posonious lookalikes that can be easily confused for someone who has not done their research! so read up, then go hunting!
where in NC are you?

If temps are falling below 40 at night, there's not a chance in hell. I'm about 20 miles southeast of Atlanta and temps have been in the 20s at night. You're further north and more in the mountains in NC, so the temps are probably a lot lower. I'd say you'd be lucky to find much of anything growing this time of year.

BTW: This post violates the rules so I've got to lock it. The information you requested can easily be found with a little bit of research and use of logic (consider current temperatures and the temperatures cubensis grow at, you'll answer your own question).
