just looking for some advice on my outdoor growing ideas
    #4110801 - 04/29/05 01:32 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Greetings and hallucinations! I'm new here at the shroomery, and also new to growing but eager to get started.

I am planning to grow psilocybe cyanescens outdoors on woodchips.
I have two locations that I am considering, one is amongst some ferns in a pine grove with lots of shade and humidity, the other is in a small cave on a northeast slope where it is very humid all the time. My plan, Based on the info ive gathered, is to make a spore "slurry", with water and mollasses (or corn syrup, as ive read that either one will work) and then inoculate the beds of woodchips with the slurry. I am going to make the beds by digging a trench in the ground, spreading a few inches of leaf mulch, spreading the woodchips on top of that, then, once the woodchips have been inoculated, spreading a couple more inches of mulch, and an inch or two of soil on top. I live in zone 5 on the plant hardiness chart.

Will these methods work?
Is this a good time of year to start? too early, too late?
What would be the best way to inoculate the woodchips with the slurry? should I just pour it into the woodchips?
Will the cave be too dark? I remember reading that some psilocybe mushies wont pin without sunlight, but I dont remember if that included cyanescens.
Will store bought woodchips work? what type is best?
Do I need to sterilize the woodchips? if so, what is a good way of doing that?
Would it work to grow them using this method but in planters?
If this works, what time of year can I expect to harvest?

Uhh, yea, that should do it.
Any advice, suggestions or corrections that anyone can give me will be much appreciated. Thanks for your time. Peace.

you should be finishing up your spawn for psilocybe cyanescens right now.

this is the month to spawn your Cyan beds.


I start my Cyans on agar.
(I sit around all winter with a paper punch...cutting up toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls)
I soak the little carboard circles in water...let them drain...then pressure cook them in jars.
Transfer the colonized agar to little peices of cardboard in jars.
Then transfer the colonized cardboard to bags of (soaked in water) alder chips.
Then when my bags of alder chips are fully colonized I transfer the colonized bags of chips to my alder beds outside.

Roadkill, What type and size bags do you use for the chips and how long do they take to be fully colonized? thanks

I use large filter patch bags.

takes about a month and a half to fully colonize the bag of chips.
