Shrooms in my Area? (Southern Canada) Plz help!
    #2400874 - 03/04/04 01:36 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I live near the southern end of Ontario(Canada), and was wondering if any Psychoactive mushrooms could possibly grow in my area. Our snowy winters obviously aren't good for growing, but summer is on its way, and in midsummer humidity can be very high, conditions can be rainy, and temperatures range anywhere from 18-40 Celsius (That's about 65-100 Fahrenheit fellow americans), and often for more then a week a humid/rainy/78 degree temperature is maintained. These conditions seem pretty darn good to me, but I'm new to this and haven't started a growing project of my own just yet. It isn't a far walk to a nearby farmer's field with loads of cow and horse manure. Would anyone in the area, or anyone that knows abnout these things be able to tell me wether or not shrooms can spawn where I am? Conditions seem right, but I'm not sure how far up north Cubes and other mushrooms can grow, and I haven't been able to find all the info I need about this with the search tool.
Thanks, CandianCube.
P.S. Some more info about where I live: I live in Canada's Capital, Ottawa. Many forests and fields are in the area. The farmer in question has grassy fields, with cows in the area, which feed off hay.

Should have read it first like I was told to, but I took a glance at the faqs. It seems these shrooms grow in ontario:
Psilocybe silvatica
Panaeolus subbalteatus
Gymnopilus viridans

If any Ontario dwelers have any experience with shroom hunting, give me a shout. Thanks.

You can add Psilocybe semilenceata
Panaeolus subbalteatus, Panaeolus castaneofolius
and Gymnopilus spectabilus to that list. The Liberty caps or "semis" will be very rare most likely eastern ontario near quebec, gyms are probably your best bet, followed by subbs....Good hunting

Cheers

RIP Matt, your friendship and your contributions to the world of fungi will be missed. Unfortunately we never got to hunt together.
