Australian Shroomers
    #580849 - 03/16/02 10:09 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

If you live in Australia and wish to make yourself known please post up some details about the following.

(1) I go Hunting for Shrooms.
(2) I Grow Shrooms.
(3) I am just interested in Shrooms
(4) I would rather not give any details.
(5) I think we need a web site for Australian Shroomers.


PS. I am very interested in shrooms and go hunting regularly, I have never grown shrooms and would like to receive and send details via private messages. I think that a down under shroom web would be a great idea and would help in any way possible to get it up and running.

Enjoy the world around you ...... Good Luck Hunting and Collecting. The future of shrooms depends on all of us.

Mystical Mycology Australia when it was up was a great site for info on aussie natives and domesticated cubensis - orientated towards cultivation.
I do believe we need a site with quality hunting info and info on australian native psilocybes as they are particularly understudied. Mjshroomer's writting provides a good idea, but we need a site that can be created covering all known findings of these mushroosm, relative potency and fruiting characteristics - and above all pictures.
I am a shroom hunter above all else, but i also enjoy cultivating psilocybe cubensis (ive grown B+, Lipa Yai, Tasmanian, Treasure Coast, ecuador, mazatapec, Golden Teacher, PF Classic, Ko Samui, Puerto Rican and PES Amazonian) as well as one variety of Pan/Copelandia Cyanescens and im trying to cultivate Ps.Australiana.
Ive found hunting about four varieties of Psilocybe Subaeruginosa, Ps. Australiana (IDed by a Botantist), Ps.Cyanescens and an unknown psilocybe of lesser potency.
Im organising a massive weekend hunt this autumn in melb. for those who are interested please pm me.
I also have a friend who found a possible Ps.Seminanceata (liberty caps)

I hunt/grow and I'm working on a website at the moment (although it has taken a backseat this last fortnight due to work obligations :frown: )  I think that a website is really needed for Aussies and as you say blumeanie, we need pics.  There is a lot about Australian fungi that is still unknown and I think this adds to the excitement (as well as the danger.)  Mjshroomer's Aus mushroom info is good but I'm sure that we can come up with something more up to date and localised.  There seems to be a growing interest in the idea of an Aussie website and if we all stick to our guns, something has to happen.

I think an aussie site would be an excellent idea - especially for those who find it hard to track down the wild stuff for want of like-minded friends and/or knowledge......

I have grown in the past with although not with a massive amount of success, and have only seen wild shrooms that others have found -weren't picked locally anyway......An aust site would be great for sharing info pertaining to this country :smile:

Hi all,
An oz site would be great.
There is a new oz site online but not much info there yet as it doesn't have many members yet. http://www.ethnobotany-australia.net/
Check it out.

I am a huge supporter!!! Go AU!! I would trade the Chicago climate, shit the whole enviornment here in general for Australia. Especially Sydney, I hope to get out there within 4 or 5 years to do some mountain biking for 2 or 3 weeks. I want to spend at least a week or so in the middle of nowhere where the Aboriginis live; the kind of untouched shit that looks so damn brutal in pictures and on t.v. Do they have helicopers that take you out there??? Just kidding, I hope to be able to afford one of those swank mountain bike tours by then. The have some no bullshit rad fucking tours with 4 star chefs that cook authentic yet current campside meals and shit for every meal; plus then you've got the first aid and people to cart your luggage (drugs mostly, 2 ounces ganja, 1 ounce fine mushrooms) around. You can go hog wild and wreck yourself and feel confident you'll live, what more can you ask for? Anways, being a bit after 4:20 an all I'm ranting a bit, I better get on track quick. I want to ask a question of the growers/shroom hunters in Australia. Hard to start but here goes. Even though I've never seen Zhukov I practically know him already and consider him a friend. I've wanted to hook him up with a couple of cases of jars and some sets of replacement rings and bands; but I don't want him to go through the trouble of getting a money order and shit..... I really don't want money, I was hoping to get something shroomy and authentically AU in return to tell you the truth!! And not something that you can buy from a supplier, I want something new and authentic!So this is a plea for both Zhukov and I; we need someone near Sydney that is proficient in both printing and finding wild mushrooms. Either that or we maybe get lucky and someone here already has a p. cubensis strain around that they're working on? Hell there is Aussie and Tazmanian that the spore suppliers here sell, any of you have a local cubensis strain that you'd like to see worked on? I will be starting my agar work in a big way this week, I would love to have a totally wild strain to work on while I'm doing the others. Can any of you help a fellow Australian (Zhukov) to barter for a new supply of a 1 or even 2 dozen jars and 2 sets of spare parts? And help an American to a new long term domesticated Australian cubensis? I am very willing to have a good extremely difficult and long term project to work on in culture form. I would work on something for 4 or 5 years even if I saw it had potential. Can anyone help in AU? Thanks for your time, love your country and hope to see a lot of it in the near future!!

Hey thanks for trying to help out in this way, kindnug....

I'm not exactly proficient in anything at the moment, but I seem to be able to fuck up substrates like I've been born to it lately!
.....If anyone more experienced would like to send some aussie strains to a enthusiastic and dedicated grower and spread them further that would be great.....;)

(oh yeah, i'd send $ of course)

And with that extrememly healthy exchange rate (just think of your money doubling!) I reckon you'd be able to get into some shit-hot outback tours......you probably even get to choose to be bitten by 'a snake of your choice.....'! lol

Hey Guys.  I'm in Sydney, I've just become interested in shrooms over the last year or so and am starting a small grow project at the moment.  Never been hunting as I wouldn't know where to start, but I would certainly be interested in having a look around Sydney, Blue Mountains etc. if anyone knows some good spots :smile:
I think an Aus Shroom community site would be great - would be happy to help in any way that I can...

I'm Australian, and I love to hunt, grow, consume and research this wonderful gift of nature.. :-)
I've just recently moved to W.A. and am planning my first hunt for Gymnopilus purpuratus. Any info about it's potency or it's pros/cons would be greatly appreciated..
Thanx everyone.
Mr.Jingles..

Purpuratus: According to Stamets it is weakly to moderately potent - .23% psilocybin, .21%psilocin and .03%baeocystin. However it is commonly believed that they Gyms contain a variety of unidentified alkaloids with unknown effects. One bioassay of Gymnopilus spectabilis reportedly had the effects of causing priapism (prolonged erection) for three full days!!
Gyms are easy to cultivate, so if you find any, make sure you pass around some clones

I'm in Sydney. I became interested in mushrooms after I found a couple of copelandia cyanescens growing in my backyard a couple of months ago, unfortunately I've found none since then. I live in a semi-rural area, with lots of farm properties and stuff, but we have a comparatively small property. It's all private land.
I've wanted to go mushroom hunting, but I have no information about where or when. We do definitely need an Australian mushroom hunter/grower site.
If anyone has any information about mushroom hunting in Sydney, with fair specifics about where and when, I would be very grateful.

Hello
Melbourne resident here. I'm interested in mushrooms, but have never grown or been hunting for them, due to lack of knowledge about what to look for (I wouldn't want to risk eating the wrong kind of mushroom). I would definately be interested in a Aussie mushroom site to learn about the different species that are in Australia.

Hi im from melbourne:
Been known to do a bit of shroom hunting, novice grower (thanx to bluemeanie for the spores).

Oz shroom site would be good especially stuff on Oz specific species.

Thank you everyone for your support. There are many people available to help with hunting and growing shrooms on this page so keep posting and see what happens.
I will compile a list and send it round. Let me know if your listing is OK to post.
I am working on a small project to design a set of Postcard size data shroom cards.
Each card will have a picture of a Mushroom with all relevant information. Designed for Australian shroomers
Please let me know if you want to help with images and data and to design your own style. The cards will become available soon so please let me know if I should put you down for a set.

I have never seen MMA running just heard about them from you. I think the more we get going in Australia the better. It seems like more people are getting interested and need a local supplier. If you're going into supplies I'm sure you will get heaps of support.
