G'day everyone - this is my first post here, great to find like minds helping each other in various shroom quests. Anyone here have much knowledge on New Zealand psilocybes? Reason I ask is I found some sort of psilocybes growing in the garden and around the wood shed. Some were growing from very rotten logs & others were coming from ground that has had various 4 legged animals grazing it. They seem to have done there dash this year. I stumbled onto them late in the season I think, anyone sure of the months down here. Anyway we just had the first frost, I put a plastic dome over one garden where they were & to my suprise there are pins everywhere when I looked under the dome today. So maybe its not too late in the season? Or did the plastic dome provide ideal humidity to bring on another burst?
Its was a real score finding the shrooms. I used to indulge about a decade ago & lifes responsibilities had kept me away from going hunting. Then last year I moved onto a small farm. To my joy I find magic shrooms growing within 20 feet of the back door. Must be more in this area, Waikato North Island, but I'm concerned that its too late in the season.
Also anyone know what temps psilocybe aucklandii like?
auckland namaclature for the most part name two varities
orange waxy white stemed
eg. psilocybe subaeruginsosa
smaller (~2-8cm) considerably more potent than gold tops
very rapid blackening reaction
dries to inky black irridenscent powder
compared to grey/w/black speckles of the (quite potent) "gold tops"
with a shorter growing season
mj claims this species is the Aucklandii
i am not so sure
these are not the psilocybe cubensis
coplopaedia cyanensens of standard global designation
(both naturally dung growers)
with the view
from auckland it still seems to me
likely to be in the first half of the season for you
as in auckland it is a late start due to a long warm summer
