What are Ovoid Mushrooms ?

Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata


Psilocybe Ovoid mushrooms or Ps Ovoideocystidiata ?



A Wonderful species of psychedelic mushroom that is native to North America. This mushroom is known for its distinctive shape and its ability to produce powerful psychedelic effects. It is believed to be one of the most potent species of psychedelic mushroom, with a higher concentration of the psychoactive compound psilocybin than many other mushrooms.

Ps. Ovoid on fruiting on woodchips.

This fungi named for its roundish ovoid like cap; has a long history of use among Native American tribes, who have traditionally used it for shamanic purposes. Another feature is its dark purple spores that are oval or ovoid in shape under the microscope. In recent years, they have become increasingly popular among recreational drug users, who use it for its psychedelic effects. The mushroom was first described in 1978 by mycologist Ronald M. Lanza, and has been the subject of study ever since.

This species of psychedelic mushroom is native to the Ohio river valley, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia in the United States. However they have spread as far as BC Canada and can been seen fruiting on wood chips along the west coast. They can also be spawned to outdoor woodchip beds. Where they will fruit in the spring. When fruiting temperatures are just right.


At Mushroom Prints we offer Psilocybe Ovoid spores for research purposes. As well as similar strains such as Ps. Cyanescens and Psilocybe Caerulipes
Both are available in spore syringe and spore print, when supplies are available. This is a rare strain but we hope to keep it stocked as often as possible.


Growing wood-loving Psilocybes outdoors

Wood-loving mushrooms are a unique type of fungi that have a preference for wood-rich environments. These mushrooms are perfect for outdoor mushroom beds, as they thrive when surrounded by natural wood materials. In this guide, we will explore how to add grain spawn into wood chips to grow mushrooms in an outdoor patch.

To start the process, it is important to first select a suitable location for your outdoor mushroom bed. Choose an area that receives adequate shade and has good drainage to ensure optimal growing conditions for your mushrooms. Once you have identified the perfect spot, you can begin preparing the woodchips that will serve as the substrate for your mushrooms. You will want to use hard woods , such as oak or alder, and avoid aciditic woods like Pine or Cedar.

The next step involves spawning grain, which is essentially adding the spawn to the woodchips. You will have made the spawn before hand using our Ovoid mushroom, Cyanescens, or Azurescens culture or spore syringes. Once you have your grain spawn, It’s time to add to your wood chips.

This process allows the mycelium (the root system of the mushrooms) to grow through out the woodchips and begin the process of fruiting. Make sure the grain spawn is spread evenly in the woodchips for healthy mushroom growth.

Once the woodchips have been inoculated with the mushroom spawn, it is crucial to provide the right environmental conditions for the mushrooms to thrive. This includes maintaining proper moisture levels, ensuring adequate airflow, and monitoring the temperature of the outdoor mushroom bed. With care and following these steps, you can grow wood-loving Psilocybe mushrooms in your own outdoor patch.
