    #2829737 - 06/26/04 04:34 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

OK..i know this sounds wierd..but i found some blue ringers last week.
I know theyre not supposed to be growing right now, so it kinda confused me at first..like i didnt even believe they were blue ringers..so i kept walking..then i was likewait a minute...picked one of them and behold! but i still didnt trust it until i got a spopre print, so i took one, and the prints were purple, so i ate them..even though there was only 9 in this persons yard.It didnt do much (of course) but now i found a new patch and when it starts raining a bunch..YUM. (sorry im just excited cuz this is the fist patch ive found here, i just moved here)..so yea go check your stunzii spots you guys!

I was picking them in March and April of this year and again in May. Pictures are posted here in this forum. Use the search engines. It takes a third of a fresh ounce to a half and 2 dried grams or so. mj

kmkshroomer7, this is definitely the time of year for them.
This is usually about the time they start popping up, although, like MJ said, we found some a few months ago.

Falkon, no, they aren't very potent at all.

Psilocybe stuntzii's are a [pasture shroom] and are very rare in pastures. As are Psilocybe baeocystis. Included in pastures and common in manure are P. fimetaria and P. sierrae, both macroscopically similar to P. stuntzii and P. stuntzii var. tenuis. P. strictipes, which macroscopically resembles P. semilanceata is also a pasture mushroom which grows in manure and sometimes appears in Lawns int he Pacidifc Northwest. All of those above noted species grow abundandtly in man made environoments in cities in gardens along sidewalks around apartment and condo complexes and in public places and according to Joseph Amiratti at the university of Washingtn's mycology Department are never found on mountains. Especially the Olympics or Cascades.

Hopefully you took some photographs for us all to view
because that would be a real cool discovery if they were found on the mountain.

Diane is a mushroom seller at the weekend produce market in the University District of Seattle and has been vending edible wild shrooms there for more than ten years. She collects shrooms in the Mt. Zion region and has never heard of anyone ever finding Stuntzii's anywhere in that region. ANd never found any int he city where she resides which has many lawns and several small public parks

So please, go back and take a few pictures for us.

mj and have a shroomy day

This has been re-edited for Black Zombie and others to understand that certain shrooms in their natural habitats are extremely rare but common in man mand environments.

Since I had a typo on P. stuntzii I suggest you go back and reread my edited comments about the pasture shrooms.

The spores for P. stuntzii and P. fiemtaria come in the liquid and fertilizers used in the topsoils used in producing sod for new lawns. Thus each patch of sod laid onto new topsoil can produce wall to wall shrooms. However, much pasturelands south of Tukwilla between Tukwila and Kent/Auburn (from Sawdust Supply in Seattle on Spokane street)and pasturelands out by Carnation in Woodinville (seliing fertile soil frm Bassett and Western)
are disappearing for new one-story non-poluting buildings.

I have shown such areas to many6 members of the shroomery. That is where blue ringers originally spread from throughout the puget sound. As far south as Eugene Oregon for blue ringers, once thought to only be in the seattle area. If yuo want to read about how many shrooms grew int he 1970s-1980s on public lawns then go tot he Grapevine section of my newspaper and read about the dozens of helicopters every wekend telling hundreds of pickers to leave fields. Read of the campus' shrooms of the UW, Evergreen State college at the Seattle police Departments Lawns, etc, allf rom those two above noted companies.

As the pastures disappear, the massive shrooms still appear but not on 79% of al new lawns like they did 15 years ago.


Pictures of mie are in the galleries here show thoe massive growths in public places so if you really need to see what I am speaking of then go look in my folders of the galleries for the Blue ringer lawn photos or the P. femetaria photos.

In the later fall months, P. stuntzii and P. fimetaria also appear in woodchips. this occurs from fertilizers in the topsoils and under the woodchips and then they feed on them. This also is the case for P. baeocystis. IT appears in lawns in the early part of the summer to fall months and when temperatures change they appear in woodchiped areas in symbiosis wioth certant plants and bushes and shrubs

I have also posted images of P. cyanescens growing in Lawns and even one with a large fairy ring around a tree where there was no mulch at all.

In the woods, only about three people have ever found P. cyanescens growing naturally and those three collections were less than 25 mushrooms.

I posted those images here in 1999.

Look for them if you feel the need to see them.
