do shrooms grow better on a specific kind of cows poop? just wondering because a long time ago before i ever hunted somebody told me they only grow on black angus cow shit but the field that i hunted all summer long that had cubes literally by the thousands only had about 30 cows total and only 1 or 2 are black angus...
also if it is not the kind of cow then is what they eat determine on the cube growth (like grain or hay). i also heard that they only grow in grain fed poop but have found some cubes in a field that had a huge pile of hay in the middle for the cows to munch on
We have Texas Longhorns, about 45. They eat native grass daily and they have a few bails of Bermuda grass to chew on. There are also two large mineral feeders out there for vitamins and essential minerals. All I can tell you is that Cubensis will grow on any cow shit as long as the conditions are right. The cubes seem to grow on shit that is at least a month old. I've never seen then on fresh shit.
yeah i only find them on shit that is very very old. a kid who owns a cubefarm told me it takes 3 years for a new feild to be able to produce cubes. never knew if this was true or not. by the way fuck you for owning a cow farm you lucky bastard
Yeah it's cool. I just have to hop on the quad and go cruising for mushrooms. Your friend might be right about a field taking a while to naturally throw of Cubensis. This ranch is about 7 years old now and there are only three places that grow lots of shrooms. We have about 60 acres that produce large quantities of cubes. The other acreage has sporadic flushes maybe 50 yards apart from each other. We have a 2 year old pasture that has had Longhorns on it for that time and there are no cubes to be found.
Of course if you had $100.00 to spend you could buy Guzman's forthcoming updated The Genus Psiliocybe. It covers over 100 or more species of psilocybe and gives descriptions as well as habitats and so. But then that only covers half of the known species.
There are more than 200 mushrooms world wide with psilocine and psilocybine in them.
2 cubensis grow in manure, 13 species of Copelandia grow in manure and 7-10 species of Panaeolus grow in manure.
However, the common ones are only three out of all of the above.
Because, two cubensis (P. cubensis and P. subcubensis), as well as Copelandia cyanescens, and Panaeolus subbalteatus. are very common in tropical and subtropical; climates and are cung inhabiters and the other Copelandia and Panaeolus species are dung inhabiters as well and most of them macroscopically resemble the c. cyanescens and the Pn. subbalteatus.
The rest of all the magic shrooms grow in manured lawns or in deciduous woods and or wood and woodchip products,
LOL....we have similar ways of telling who the tourists are out here. Like the people who wear shorts in the summertime (San Francisco cold and foggy summertime) and sit there shivering with goosbumps while waiting for the cable cars, while everybody else has jackets on.
Yep, the famous Califonia sunshine in the summer...haha
