Psilocybe quebecensis is a hallucinogenic mushroom native to the province of Quebec in Canada. It is rumored to grow wild in the valley of the river Jacques Cartier, and to fruit at a temperature of 6°C to 15°C (42°F to 59°F) from summer to late October.

I am not certain what It actually is, the spores are brownish, the flesh blues, the cap has a pellicle and the shape is similar to P. semilanceata. I don't think I saved any dried specimens to do microscopy (dammit) but I did take prints to work with later. The initial print was nearly invisible on a paper towel.

got spore$ ? i'd like some.
I have a few prints for my own work but not enough to distribute. I like to know what things are before distribution anyway. Maybe I'll have some this fall.

I live in the province of Québec and I've found this mushroom a year ago. This mushroom grows in more areas than Cartier river. Very few people knows about mushrooms in this country, lot of people are scare of them. This specie is not very potent, on a scale of 10 I would give him a 4 or a 5 (10 would be an azurescens). Its a very small mushroom, mycelium is tough, long time incubation, maybe one of the most rustic specie, easy to cultivate but with very low yield. I'm very surprise that this mushroom create an interest here, and more that someone has spores. This mushroom is unknown, I'd like to know how Workman got the spores? Are you sure you got quebecensis's spores?

This specie grows well on white or yellow birch woodchips. Less sawdust as possible in the substrates but just anough to help mycelium running and covering well the subs.. I didn't kept anything from this specie, I didn't see any interest in. This specie is rare, very rare to find in the bush, they don't grow in clusters, isolate. If I ever find one next year I'll make a clone and offer it here. The mycelium is very tough and resistant. Its now to late for this year, snow starting to fall.
