cyans and redwood forests?
    #3635548 - 01/16/05 06:04 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hi all,
Here in Marin (bay area) most of the forests are heavily studded with redwoods. From my past few days of research it sounds like cyanescens will not grow in redwood chips due to soil ph problems. Is this correct? If so, should I be concentrating my searching in areas that contain mainly deciduous trees/undergrowth? Thanks group!

Hi.

I can't speak for anyone but myself, near Humboldt Bay. Up here, I find cyans in dune grass, because for some reason, folks do not use alder-type chips for landscaping. I've walked all through the redwoods, which grow in my backyard, and I don't think there's much of a chance to find cyans in the redwoods, probably because of ph issues.

Anyway, good luck, and any other Cali hunters out there, feel free to give an update. In the last week, I have made a few scattered finds of cyans near Eureka, California -- in the dune grass, but they definately seem to be winding down for the season. I am convinced that the dune grass along the coast is a natural habitat for cyans, growing in scattered, small groups, at least here in Humboldt County.

I was glad to find some, but nothing near the huge hauls people have mentioned farther north.

Peace

You won't find cyans in the woods. they appear in man made environments. They do not like red trees, especially cedar. But not in the3 woods. Extremely rare, yet that is there natural habitat.

In alder they fruit abundantly.

You need to read about the species and then look in man made environments. However, the se3ason is over int he Seattle region and probably in most of Oregon. Maybe a few scattered small fruitings in the san fran region.

good luck,,

mj

same with weilii.. SO rare in the 'wild', yet they pop up all over man made enviromnents.. A shame too, I would MUCH rather spend 3 hours wandering the wild woods, amoung nature, then walk the concrete jungle and get shifty glances from passerbys

Very few fungi will grow on redwood. The trees produce chemicals that make the wood very resisitant to fungi. That's why redwood is so popular for making things like decks.

Happy mushrooming!
