My ice-cream pales of P. serbica seem to be motoring along nicely.c52a02c839030de6eb1be10645ac66b6.jpg4991a4c8c220f9af190720650cc66c97.jpgd50f200ecd05e43e7e57a8cfb5b671a6.jpg

have to ask if springtail's will cause damage to mycelium or not? I have some tubs which are free of them and a few others which are full of them, they spread very quickly. Are there any easy ways to eliminate them without doing harm to the mycelium? Thanks.

Nice going manos way to start off the season! Keep us updated


We're forecast for a soaking rain here in the PNW that will get things poppin shortly!! 3 months of being bone dry I'm ready for rain;)


Northeastern members should be able to grow several native species in your region like P caerulipes,P ovoids and P quebecensis.


All those in the sub tropical/tropical regions wishing to grow woodlovers should give P zapotecorum and P careulescens a shot outdoors in prepared chip beds. Once established these could be maintained for years. I've found they both do well on naturescapes mulch.


However, I know of P azurescens/cyanescens growing in Sept with temps in the mid 90's and lows in the 60's in the Willamette Valley and also a member here had them fruiting in the high desert northwest with hot and dry conditions. Perhaps it's the shortening of day light which is a trigger?


Keep it up everyone we're right at the beginning of the season, yippeee !!

do you ever find P. Stuntzii in your area? regards mjroom.


Yes I've found P stuntzii along the coast and Willamette Valley. I'll post pix if I come across any this season. I've found them among grass and mulch. I'm attempting cultivation outdoors too. Tried them a few times and they pack a punch. Definitely much stronger than what you will read about them. I hope a new potency study is performed on all active mushrooms.

All this worry about hydrating the beds.  What happens in nature?  They dry out remain dormant and then reappear. That is what I am observing. Too much water and other competitor mold and fungi appear IME.  This was going on long before man was on the scene.

mjroom try diatomaceous earth.

Seeker that's fine if you live in the PNW or another Mushroom Paradise.

I live in the Midwest way out of the natural growth zone for these psychoactive woodlovers.

Our temps often range from summer of 90's - 100F, winter often 0F to -20F The humidity during fruiting season is often to low to allow pins to grow to maturity.

I have to work to keep these alive, we are in a sever drought, water in summer and do all I can to increase the humidity in harvest season.

If I left it to nature I probably would have nothing to pick.

I would rather cultivate my cyans than "Tripp vicariously " through other growers.

Season is winding up here, still a little warm but always a few early fruiters.
This is a fish tote I prepped last year and transferred some of what I hoped was Ps, quebecensis mycelium laden wood.
The wild patch is just starting as well, get some pics in the morning.




Libs are starting to fruit as well..... :thumbs_up2:

Now I just gotta get all this weed harvested and trimmed up so I can devote more time to the shrooms.

Now back to work............. :weedpoke:

I wood love to get my hands on some Quebecensis they would grow here perfectly being that I live across the street from Quebec. I would go get them myself but I'm not allowed in Canada because I got a speeding ticket!

I was out of town at the Gauley River Festival in West Virginia for about 5 days and anxious to return to see my beds. Stopped in my tracks when I saw a couple mushies poking up. But.... looks like a pluetus. Competitors already!

A nice plus is all the rain from Irma got my shiitakes going.

Ok, here are some pictures of the two beds which actually look like one bed but really there is a bed in the front of the tree and a bed behind the tree. And of course some pin porn. I will also upload some other mushrooms I found growing in the yard today.

1 = deconica

2 = mycena

3 = unknown blue/green bruising species
