Every year I ask this question!!!!!! And Every year i get no reply!!!!!! Is there any "special" mushrooms that grow wild in SOUTHERN MANITOBA?????????? I don't think that there are any cubensis here, but mabey some liberty caps. If u have heard any thing about this or have any links or have a joke or something please reply
Just because they are not listed in your area does not mean that they don't grow there. Someone found Psilocybe cyanescens in Ottawa and that is definitely out of sequence. Check the listings for Alberta and Ontario. There has to be some overlap. There seem to be Gymnopilus all around you. Although you have a very harsh climate once you get the snow cover, the ground is not as cold. With all the grassland in Sask, and Buffalo for thousands of years before the cattle, there have to be Pan subs there, they grow everywhere.
Why not be johnny mushroomspore and introduce something to your area. Mr G says please, please be careful not to let his B+ get loose in the wild. It will take over and kill out all the native mushrooms. If you don't have any native mushrooms, then introduce his B+ on wood chips into your decidious forests and let it go. There are people with outdoor beds of B+ as far north as Alaska. Get some Pan sub spores and try introducing them to grass. They should be able to survive. In a few years your gardens could spread huge. I am going to try to introduce Psilocybe cyanescens into my garden in Toronto. If I get it growing, I will spread it around the ravines of Toronto in the fallen logs. Soon we will be known as The City of Blue Angels instead of The Big Lemon. I'm also going to work with Pan subs. I will have years of pickings before anyone finds my guerilla gardens. Hopefully they will establish themselves and spread leaving my living legacy.

Well orchidman man, I see once again that you are spreading false information.
Psilocybe cubensis is a dung-inhabiting species found in subtropical climates, not in the temperate North.
It does not grow in Alsaka outdoors contrary to what you say. Again relying on false information from your Mr. G.
P. cubensis cannot grow outdoors out of the subtropics.
Yes, you can dump your terrarium or cakes outdoors but in the woods or in a garden and then that is the only place it would grow, if the weather conditions are warm enough. But then then that is all they grow. They do not spread and continue and you tend to get one or two flushses period and thats it. But that is not growing them outdoors. You are just removing the spawn from an indoor enviroment to a second environment and if the weather changes as it sometimes does you may get nothing from the outdoors you threw your terrerium growth into.
That is the only way and for that matter it would best be in your interests to keep them where you started them. In the terrarium/
And no mushroom takes over an environment and wipes out all other mushrooms as Mr. G. Claims in your above note. Also Psilocybe cubensis (B+) does not grow on wood. It is a coprophilous species found in the manure of four-legged ruminants. "Not on wood chips into your decidious forests", also which you mentioned in your above post.
I canot believe that anyone would be so mindless as to believe those kind of stories. Maybe you should go to community college wherever you live and take a few courses in mycology and learn something so that when you post it will be honest information and not the spread of misinformation provided by someone else who does not know what he is talking about. Thats heresay and has no meaning.
