Libert Cap Cultivation
    #6089200 - 09/22/06 03:34 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I was wondering if there was anywhere on the net that I could go about obtaining Liberty Cap spores for cultivation. How hard are these to grow? If they are really difficult, what would be a good species of actives for a beginner to cultivate? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Get you some spores from a sponsored vendor,
a solid easy strain,

start off with the PF tek, do some RESEARCH!
its gonna cost a little to get started, but
after the time and money the end result is nice.

indoor cultivation of libs is pretty damn hard. Id stick to cubes or pans for indoor cultivation.

Liberty caps are pretty difficult to grow. If you are just starting out, any strain of Psilocybe cubensis is a better choice. Sporeworks.com sells liberty cap spores, but unless you are planning an outdoor bed and live in the right climate I would discourage your attempt. Indoor cultivation is possible but tricky.

A somewhat easier species that is similar to the liberty cap is Psilocybe hispanica. It grows directly on dung or compost and fruits at a somewhat warmer temperature than liberty caps.

An even better choice would be Psilocybe mexicana which is sometimes called the mexican liberty cap due to its similar shape and habit. It has a bonus feature in that it produces sclerotia under less than perfect growing conditions. So even if you fail to get mushrooms you are likely to get some sclerotia. That should be enough information to get started with your research. Make sure you find out all you can on any species before investing in spores. Good luck!

Stick with one of the Cubensis strains for your first grow...

then move on to Copelandia cyanescens after you have a few grows under your belt.


Psilocybe semilanceata (liberty caps) are extremely difficult to cultivate...even for an experienced grower or mycologist.

Kewl. Talking about outdoor growing... Is it possible to grow Liberty Caps outdoor? And how?

If you are in a climate that supports liberty caps, grow cyans or even azures (the most potent psilocybes) instead. They are fairly easy compared to liberty caps. Libs are strictly for skilled and experienced cultivators, which I believe you are not. And even they won't get great yields, it's more or less strictly done for proof of concept.

My climate is ~perfect for LC. So whats the preparation for outdoor growing? Or just inject spores in to grassy earth?

You are not prepared to grow Libs. It's not like growing gardenias. You don't just stick a spore into the ground.
You will be in for a very disappointing growing experience. Which part of "YOU WILL FAIL" did you not understand? Even long time mycologists trying it don't get more than a hand full of libs.
The process is a whole lot more difficult than you are aware of and if you have no experience with growing mushrooms that can be cultivated fairly easy in an indoor setup then YOU. WILL. FAIL.

it is almost impossible. if you want to try to grow mushrooms, grow cubes.

In the sixties of the last century the famous french mycologist
Roger Heim cultivated Psilocybe semilanceata successfully
on pasteurized corn straw. Maybe it's worth a try.
