Re: Outdoor growing in Washington?
    #273728 - 03/18/01 12:14 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

Do you really think that Washintong state, in the sound area is too dry? Seattle too dry?

Well all I have is four syrnges of p. cub. and that is what I plan on growing, because I don't now where to get ahold of the other strain you mentioned at.

When growing outdoors is it nessacary to start indoors and then move outside, or can you start outside right away? Also it still gets to about 40 degrees at night but never below freezing, I don't understand why, in the Pacific northwest where a huge amount of shrooms grow naturally, why I couldn't innocualte a few places here and there, and maybe put allite cowshit under the grass for food?

Any more help would be nice.

It is only too dry in the summer, there is plenty of moisture in the rest of the year. You need warmth to successfully grow cubensis outdoors. You would have the best success cultivating indoors and transfering outdoors in the summer. If it was as easy as injecting some cowshit outdoors you would have heard about it.

Psilocybe cubensis doesn't normally grow in your area for good reason. It is too cold in the Spring and Fall when you are likely seeing native mushrooms in your area and it is too dry in the summer when it is warm enough to support cubensis fruiting.

Well I have seen people dump their aquariums and/or terrariums into the outdoors and have a small fruiting of some P. cubensis but they never return the next year. AS Workman said they do not grow heree.

And of course you can transplant cyanescens form one patch into a similar habitat somewhere else. Generally P. cyanescens may or may not grow inthese trans;planted patches. In the last thirty years or so I have only been able to get about three out of every ten I transplanted to grow.

On the Other hand, the Astoria shroom known now as Psilocybe azurescens, named after Paul Stamets' son, will grow in every trans-planted habitat and has been found in Austria, Switzerland, Ohio, Arizona, New York and a few other places, but as in the PNW, they will only fruit for a few years and then they dissappear.

Good luck with whatever you may plant.


Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.
