Growing Mushrooms

So I started growing shiitake and oyster mushrooms this spring on logs which is coming along nicely. But I also started messing around with growing oysters on pasteurized organic straw in bags. So this morning while checking the bags that are hanging in my garage I noticed that one of the strains/bags is starting to pin! just thought I would share a quick couple of pics as I know a couple others here are growing mushrooms.

I knew what they were- big fan of the "cloud Mushroom"  just not big on posting illegal activity online  :cheers:
I currently have 10 different strains of shiitake and oyster mushrooms going. Should be a good fall. note the oyster bags I just hang in my garage.

Please excuse my ignorance but I was under the impression it was illegal to cultivate mushrooms that contain psilocybin? if it's not then I may need to rethink this whole job thing of mine....  :P
Who said they cultivate psilocybin? I know I never I said I cultivated psilocybin , like you said its illegal...
 
Absolutely man mycology is probably my favorite hobby of mine next to gardening...
