Psilocybe azurescens mycelium
    #2692308 - 05/17/04 06:57 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Hi all, I've searched and searched (found two of Anno's outdoor experiences, which were very informative) but still have no answer to my personal question.

If I thoroughly mixed a 1 pint jar of fully colonised azurescens woodchips into a 10 pint plastic container (10 pint tupperware kinda thing with a semi-tight lid) full of soaked fresh hardwood chips and let it sit indoors at room temperature (lid on or off?) untill the whole ten pints of woodchips have colonised, would this be ok to transfer to an outdoor bed in June and to fruit this autumn?  I personally think so as 10 pints is quite a bit of mycelium for a wood lover and contaminants are minimilised with woodchips but I'm interested in your personal opinions.

:smile:

Yes, but i would use some sort of air exchange like
polly filter of tyvek, as good clean air exchange speeds things up.

Also dont over wet the chips, drain them well. The should be damp, not moist.

You still can get contams, bacteria mainly, but its not
always a problem. Oftern the azure myc will still colonise the contaminted chips.


You are a little late though, its now you want to have
the 10 pints to spawn to outdoor beds. Youll have to use the spawn in mid summer, which might mean no shrooms untill the autum after next :/

Thanks Loki, I appreciate your input.  I'm going to stick with my cubensis for the rest of this year and turn the azurescens mycelium/spawn into a 10 gallon drum full for next april.  After all, I still have my Psilocybe cyanescens patch in me garden which has fruited year after year.

Thanks again. :smile:
