Growing Parameters for Various Mushroom Species/203

robust and potently psilocybian. Much sought after for its high psilocybin and psilocin content, it is a
favored mushroom by those seeking entheogenic experiences.
Psilocybe cyanescens' adaptability to natural outdoor culture makes this species attractive to
beginning and connoisseur cultivators alike. Virgin spawn can be collected from the wild and implanted in prepared beds (see Chapter VI) or spawn can be grown out on bran/sawdust or grain
and inoculated directly onto unsterilized soaked corrugated cardboard. Grain spawn inoculated onto
untreated wood chips is associated with a higher contamination rate than the same spawn implanted
onto soaked cardboard, owing to the partial selectivity of the latter material.

Although fruitbodies can form on fresh sawdust, they do so reluctantly and belatedly. The fact
that sawdust so readily loses its moisture may explain, in part, why Psi/ocybe cyanescens has difficulty fruiting on if.
Psilocybe cyanescens has a mycelium that is typically whitish and strandy (rhizomorphic). Tissue and spore cultures are easy to obtain. Outdoor colonies can be maintained for years with minimal effort and produce two to three flushes within a season.
