About Psilocybe azurescens
This is one of the most potent of the tryptamine-bearing mushrooms, contains 0.5% psilocin , 1.8%psilocybin and 0.4% baeocystin by dry weight, giving an average of about about 1.1% psilocybin and 0.15% psilocin.

Psilocybe azurescens Appearance
The cap of Psilocybe azurescens is 3-10 cm wide. Its shape varies from conical to convex, but as it ages, it flattens out and has obvious papillary bumps called umbo. The surface of the cap is smooth, sticky when wet, and covered by a gel-like substance called Pellicle.
- azurescens is ochre to caramel in color but becomes pitted with dark blue or bluish black ones. Its color also changes based on its moisture. When dry, it fades to a light straw color with strong blue bruises when damaged.
It also has a long or silky white stalk up to 9-20 cm long and 0.3-0.6 thick. The base of the stem thickens downwards and is often curved, characterized by aerial tufts of coarse, white, often blue-tinted mycelium.
The mycelium towards the base of the stipe is densely root-like, tenaciously holding the wood chips together.
Psilocybe azurescens may be the strongest psilocybin mushroom out there but it’s also the least palatable because of its extremely bitter taste.
Psilocybe azurescens Cultivation
Psilocybe azurescens prefer to grow in colder, wetter places. Therefore, they’re not ideal to grow indoors. If you have a small yard where the sun is always shining, growing Psilocybe azurescens is not for you. You should live in a place where the autumn season is cold and wet. As an additional consideration, it’s important to lay the bed where the mushrooms will be safe throughout the year
P.azurescens also come up during autumn and right before the beginning of winter. To whole process from preparing the spawn to the fruiting is a long process so it should be started as early as January.
The growing process has three phases: preparing the spawn, growing the mycelium, and growing the mushroom.
Phase 1 – Preparing the Spawn
The easiest way to get spawn is to start off with a bag of sterile grain which can easily be inoculated with a spore syringe. Once you have a bag of colonized grain, it can be added to a larger amount of sawdust to further spread the mycelium.
Grain spawn is the best option because it gives the fungus plenty of nutrition to feed on. Grain also guarantees a rapid and vigorous growth although improper handling may cause contamination. However, once the grain spawn is transferred to sawdust, the risk of infection drops dramatically because sawdust doesn’t attract as many microorganisms.
Phase 2 – Growing the Mycelium
The actual process of impregnating the sawdust with grain spawn is easy. After obtaining sawdust, sterilize them by boiling them in water for 10 minutes. Drain the sawdust and then start layering it in another bucket with your inoculated grain. Cover with a lid or place the now-layered bucket in a large plastic bag to help maintain humidity.
Allow fresh oxygen to enter by opening the bag once a day. After a month, your sawdust will be completely inoculated and ready to be transferred outdoors.
For this outdoor grow, you will need approximately 1.2 kilograms of sawdust spawn for each square meter of mushroom patch.
Phase 3 – Growing the Mushroom Outdoors
When creating a magic mushroom patch for Psilocybe azurescens, the first thing to consider is lighting. In general, most mushrooms require indirect sunlight. This also applies in the case of magic mushrooms. Therefore, when picking a spot for your magic mushroom patch, try picking one that has a lot of light during the day but that is not exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
If you can’t use your backyard (because of your nosy neighbors), then you should choose a site that is not too far away to walk daily. If it’s too far, you’d run the risk of missing out on a potential harvest because the patch will require daily checking during the harvest period.
Psilocybe azurescens are best
cultivated in areas where grass and shrub meet the forest because they offer easy access and environmental factors which can help them thrive. If you can’t find ideal environment such as this one, then a moist patch of land with dabbled sunlight will do just fine.
Once you have a location, you’ll just need three more things to continue:
- Sterilized wood chips (boiled in water to kill microorganisms and prevent contamination)
- Fully colonized sawdust spawn
Follow these instructions to create your own mushroom patch:
- Clear the site of debris. Strip it away of everything down to the mineral earth.
- Cover the area in cardboard.
- Cover the cardboard with a 5cm layer of sterile wood chips. Spread them out evenly and moisten.
- Place your first layer of sawdust spawn onto the woodchips. Make sure to distribute 400g of spawn them evenly.
- Place another layer of wood chips over the spawn. This layer needs to be 7cm deep. Moisten.
- Cover with another layer of 400g of spawn.
- Add 3cm of wood chips on top and moisten again.
- Cover with a final layer of 400g of sawdust spawn.
- Lock in the moisture with a cardboard.
You should be left with 3 layers of wood chips and 3 layers of spawn. Now that it’s complete, saturate it with water one last time.
And that’s all there is to it. Once everything is in place, all you need is patience. Try your best to leave the patch undisturbed for at least six months. This will give the mycelium enough time to colonize the wood chips.
In case it never rains, you can help by soaking the bed with water. Once the mushrooms start growing, keep an eye on them and make sure there aren’t any invasive species trying to take over your Psilocybe azurescens patch.
