    Hi RIU' ers

    I have a part in my Garden that I suspect to be a perfect place for wood eating shrooms.

    Since a few years I am looking for that Psylocibe Azurescens kit but its always sold out.
    Now they are in Stock.
    But I am curious about when to Start.
    We have still frosty nights and sometimes also days. Tonight it was -3.5 Celsius.
    I think its to early/cold to start but not I am not sure.
    May would be secure frostwise here. The description says the kit is ready to go into garden.

    If I wait too long with my order they will be sold out again.

    I need Help

    My Question is..

    - How long can I store such a kit prior planting outside?

    - Do I have to wait till frosts are over (May in my Case)?

    - how could I store or handle the kit until the right planting time comes, if I order early?

    Thank you Guys!

    Peace

    Can you grow azurescens or cyenscens in a monotub? I’d imagine just adjust the sub and temps, only ever done cubes

    I'm not real sure how it's done.. I recall seeing people growing them in compost and wood chips in buckets and flower pots.. I just don't remember the site I seen them on.. Maybe YouTube has some vids..
    I know the panaeolus copelandia prefers dung/manure unlike the panaeolus cyaescens or azurescens .. I'm going to give either of these two a try outdoors this year myself.. On the shroomery there are journals of people growing them in mulch and wood chips in raised beds and having good success every year.. They just add New material every year and weed out other wood lovers before they over run the bed..

    You think they’d grow on the east coast? PA is super humid and our springs and falls would probably be the best time to grow these, 40-50 degrees for fruiting if this websites correct. Guess I got some reading to do, thanks homie for peaking my interest

    Maybe, I had read they take 8-16 months before they're established enough to fruit.. This is the only thing hanging me up on growing them.. I'm not sure if they'll survive the winters.. Maybe if they are heavily mulch they'll make it..

    Hi Bro thanks for the great link!!
    I need input bongsmilie

    You mentioned raised beds.... thats a great idea!

    And Bro let them take two Years to fruit but if they take over the composting of the wood on the place they grow from then on and fruit yearly its worth waiting.

    In the part of the garden mentioned above is uncultivated fruit shrubs and trees we left wilderness for the birds and insects. A lot of dead wood is falling down each year and will feed the shrooms. That was the idea.
    So the plan is to establish a bed there as "Headquater" for the mycelum.
    The spores I hope to spread the population around the garden and start new growing spots independently from the headquater on their own.
    Dunno if that works but its worth a try I hope.

    Since the kit I am behind is substrate it should be storeable for longer time I got told from people with food mushrooms.
    Any thoughts on that?

    Shroomery is cool but I got lil answer there.

    Cool that youre on the same path.:bigjoint:

    @570Grow
    I am not sure but I think as long as winter in your corner in the woods gets significantly under zero celsius you should expect fruiting in fall.
    Only made cubes myself in the past. But all that sterile shit ...

    I want to work unsteril:bigjoint:

    Peace out:peace:

    We have several types of psilocybes here in northern mi. But I have yet to find any cyaescens or azure's .. I would think they could possibly survive if they were introduced into my yard/woods .. But because are growing seasons are so short and are winters are long and February is normally below zero for a couple weeks I'm not sure they will make it on their own.. My thinking is if I do a raised bed and heavily munched it and covered it with burlap the mycilim could survive.. I'm just apprehensive on spending fourty bucks for them not survive.. I may have to try it though.. I'll probably never know other wise.. I'm going to put some koh-samui cultures out in certain spots in my gardens and see what comes of them.. I've got some spawn going now for one more shoe box (sterlite plastic shoebox) I only grow them for me and occasionally share with close friends for a little get togther and bon fire. Mainly for me though..lol..
