I want to find some shrooms in NE Mexico
    #2837912 - 06/29/04 12:31 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Hi everyone, well I live here in Monterrey Mexico, if anyone knows this city its in the North East of Mexico, a very arid climate, (there's a desert stocked with peyote to the east) but to the west there are many mountains, rising to about 2000 meters max. I've been lucky enough to experience these beautiful mountains under the influence of LSD, (and of course the afore mentioned cacti), but have had no luck finding shrooms!!

(well, I have seen some, but I wasn't sure what they were)

ANYWAY...can anyone point me to some pics of what shrooms in this area might look like?? I guess they would be "Psilocybe mexicana", but I'm not sure what they look like exactly, (maybe the variety is different here...)

I'm a very inexperienced mushie hunter (Riverhead, AKL notwithstanding), so would appreciate any tips

Gracias, y suerte con la caza!!

Check out http://www.shroomery.org/images/12184/World_Wide_Distribution_of_Magic_Mushrooms.pdf
Page 37 has a list of mexican mushrooms and on page 19 is a map showing distribution. Then once you find what mushrooms grow in your area just go to http://www.mushroomjohn.com/species.htm for pictures. That should at least start you off in the right direction.

But from my beginner knowledge I do not believe that mushrooms grow in that area... you will have to see what others say. But dry and arid seems far from ideal conditions. I think mushrooms in mexico are mainly found more south where you get a little more tropical. again im a novice so not sure

I checked out those pages (my brain hurts after reading so many Latin names :smile: ) and have a fair idea of what mushrooms in this area might look like...I stuffed up in my original post, to the WEST of the city it is very arid and dry (the start of the great Chihuahua desert) to the SOUTH EAST is the mountainous area (part of the Sierra Madre Oriental, including the landmark Cerro de la Silla).  The mountains have a pretty high level of rainfall, the vegetation is predominantley pine trees, cedars, oaks, ie. not desert-type vegetation, and I've seen mushrooms growing there, so I'm sure that its plausible for magic mushrooms to grow there too...(I hope!)  The map shows a couple of dots in this area too...

Unfortunately, I haven't met anyone who is interested in mushrooms here...(my ex flatmate from Mazatlan took me to the desert to find the peyote, but had no idea about where to find shrooms..)

thanks for your help, fujisawa...happy hunting!!  (Buena suerte con la caza!!)

thanks mjshroomer...

to RITM1999, well, I feel bad taking the peyote from the desert, as its an endangered species, and i don't know anyone who cultivates it, ( i would do it myself but they take a long time to grow...) and last time i felt guilty, i couldn't shake the idea out of my mind during the trip...

lsd, meh...i prefer mushies!!, haven't had any for almost 3 years (last time was a funny trip riding a bike around the streets of amsterdam!!)
