Does anyone know whether or not you are suppose to sterilize the woodchips when growing azurescens?

You do not really need to sterilize for outdoor growth. But depending on the source of the wood, it could be in your best intrest to do something to kill possible competitor fungi...

Oh by the way this is for indoor azurescens. Does that make a difference? So I need to let them soak for a couple of days? Eric's Guide To Cultivating Psilocybe Azurescens/Cyanescens here on the shroomery doesnt mention that. Soaking them sounds right though. Let me know if you guys have anymore suggestions.

Thanks

I just borrowed some woodchips from outside a shiitake farm the other day...

They have a sprikler system keeping the chips moist and they sterilise in a huge autoclaver before growing...

I don't know if this is really relevant to what you plan to do or not, but I will be growing some edibles on a woodchip substrate and certainly intend to sterilise 1st (also partly because I plan to use h2o2 and need to destroy the enzymes which would otherwise break it down...)
