think i found cyans in marin part2 - please help ID these
    #3689073 - 01/27/05 05:09 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Went out at noon for more hunting and came across this patch under eucalyptus trees in nice decaying wood chips with surrounding low shrubs.

Only my third day hunting but I think I've got the real deal. Bluing on stem, gills and edges.

Are these cyans?

Damn, Nice finds. I don't see the bluing but those are them.
Good to see they're still popping up somewhere.

give a description damnit.
please :smile:

get a spore print

i don't know where marin is but if those blue [realy blue, not just bruide some random dark color] they look like Psilocybes. i see no blueing whatsoever in the last pictures.

at any rate, i can't judge your photos accurately, as i can barely see them.
.
the next time you take some, try to be sure that there isa good light source and that it is facing the mushrooms so they are actualy illuminated.


--------------------



Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

lol - im working on a description but I'm at work! Marin is the county just north of san fran over the golden gate bridge.

Yeah, I'd have liked to take less of the mycelium with me but the area was somewhat exposed and I had to work fast.

I'm taking a spore print now and will try to get some better pics later today.

Nice finds tendency, and all it took was a few days hunting for them. Just have to be at the right place at the right time.

as i've maintained; you do far more damage trampling a bed while picking than you do pulling mycelium up with the mushrooms, as long as you're not ripping up large chunks intentionaly [ie. spawn-making.]

yeah, i had a feeling i remembered M. county for some reason, but couldn't place it.

This whole mushroom adventure has been a very strange experience indeed. I remember about 10 days ago having a sudden urge to see if magic mushrooms could be found in this are as I remember hearing they were on the west coast.

I then promptly found this site and began reading and researching. For the past 10 days practically all I could think about was finding mushrooms. I kept picturing cyans and what they would look like to find (yeah, I tend to obsess).

After these last rains I just knew I'd fine some. A feeling that I couldn't shake. And sure enough, today I did.

Perhaps I manifested them through sheer force of will. ;-)

congrats on the marin find! my dad lives in mill valley, marin is just 45 mins away from Benicia.
im jealous, and id recommend a tester dose, becuase cyans are way more potent than cubes.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Hey Tendency,

Next p time you go picking please be sure to use a pair of scissors to cut the shrom at the base of the stem.

Ripping them out as you have obviously done will cause you to l have less shrooms the foloowing season. ANd again, remember that they will only appear for two to three years or so unless the same mulch is replaced into the garden area where you found them.

Eventually ivy and other plants utilize all the nutrients int he soils so they stop growing after a while.

have a shroomy day,.

mj
