Psilocybin Mushrooms of SE QLD, Australia

Recommended Posts

In a nutshell, yes, they are seasonal as soil temps are a big factor for fruiting. Rain is essential as mushrooms can be around 90% water.

 

Subs can be found in QLD. Have a flick back through this thread for some photos and times of year, etc. :wink:

Finished work early cos of the rain, went for a gander and found one straight away. Then looked for another 15 and found nothing. Then I got busted (but it was OK cos I'd consulted with the landowner earlier, he just didn't recognise me :innocent_n:)

Plenty of biggish cubes around today, with a new flush of pans to boot! Worth a look today and tomorrow for sure :wink:

Is it too wet to try tmw morning? Do they still pop up while it's wet? Gonna try and get out before sunrise either tmw or next few days.

 

Wet>dry for a few days seems to be a good pattern, but do they disintegrate if it's wet again or do they keep pushing up? 

Thanks :shroomer:

Usually the active mushrooms of SE QLD will wait a few days after rain to flush, but it is all dependent on their exposure and how much actually falls around them.

 

Imo the best weather for mushroom foraging is when the humidity is pretty much 100% (i.e. light misting rain with occasional showers). They will continue to pop when it is wet or dry; it just depends on the saturation of the spot. The main thing to consider is that most actives, particularly cubes, will present different when they are very wet, so ID may be a bit tricky at times if you are new to it.

 

Get out there if you can! :lol:

Good grief!! :o :wub:

 

If you have the chance you need to get out there tomorrow. This afternoon was that dream scenario; cubes as far as the eye can see... :shroomer:

 

Sure to be more out on the morrow. Good luck!!  :lol:

Awesome! I spotted a bunch but for whatever reason, I never find them in low lying areas, always on slopes and usually more to the top of them. 

 

It must be the spot I go to, there's been thousands of pans down where it's real soggy but never a single cube in such a large area until I walk up the hill (which is quite small so I don't find a huge amount).

It may be the cows there avoid the low lying land. Maybe a bit soggy/snakey, and there might be better grass elsewhere? Are there trees on the slopes that offer any shade?

 

I am beginning to believe there are certain species of grass that foster better mycelial growth and hence fruiting? Any thoughts? :huh:

Great day for a ride ! I went out after a hot cuppa and ran into 4 other likeminded  nature lovers which was cool . Normally I would ride through the paddocks hunting but because I was in such a good mood thanks to that cuppa  ( and passed a 3 mtr python cross the track ) I decided to ride out to one of the local dams and back . On the way back I was chased by a big thunder head and of course boom ! One then two then 3 so I stuffed my pockets for a sunny day good fun indeed . 
PS please be aware of the snakes out I have had one 3 mtr python and even a goanna out sunning himself and the guys I saw didn’t have long pants or even long socks from what I remember today.

PPS thunderheads add to hunting and think I can see where a lot of the mythology comes from

Hopefully still around Saturday morning? Either way adventures will be had.

Today and yesterday were peak season days; just fucking everywhere. :blink:

 

Good opportunity to try and get some morphological markers for the cubensis and subcubensis, which apparently are identical apart from spores. I reckon they can be picked apart from each other; just gotta get the microscope out I guess?

 

Anyone got any knowledge on cubensis vs subcubensis? :huh:

A couple of different ideas here but all I can find so far

There were quite a few trees down in the lowest soggy regions so, at least for that area, you need to get a little higher. I did that today and went through a fence nearby and was shocked to find them everywhere.

 

They certainly seem to love the shade, and the combination of high shade (trees)  and low shade (grass). 

 

Great point about grass types I might get some pics of common paddock grasses ready for next time so I can identify them and see if there's a pattern. Very interesting!

If people uploaded more wild find pics it would help to check if there are favorable grasses too!

How can I describe this morning...?

 

Epic? Ridiculous? Sublime? :huh:

 

Maybe all 3! Get out there now if you can! :o:drool2:

Mushroom porn everywhere! I was out before the sun and what a beautiful morning. Rain, mist and humidity. Have fun hunting!

If you missed the boat during this first flushing fear not; there will more than likely be at least one more significant flush before the end of the season.

 

A quick flick back through this thread will reveal mushrooms being spotted well into April, so more fun times to come!
