first off i have taken shrooms numerous times, mostly when i was younger and enjoyed every experience. i recently moved from Philly/NJ area to South-eastern Louisiana. I was always told that shrooms are more abundant and/or grow all over the place in the south (im assuming because of the hotter, more humid weather).
back to my questions. 9 1. is it 100% true that shrooms (psilocybin grow in cow shit? 2. is it 100% true that the shrooms only come out at night? (i figure this is a myth, but i had to ask) 3. is there anything specific or anywhere specific (ex. in the woods, on a farm, etc) one should look for when hunting for shrooms? 4. after you locate shrooms and pick them, what do you wash them with?
i have never went looking for shrooms since i was never aware of anywhere that they grew. now i live around a bunch of farms and wooded areas, so i figured i would go out and at least look around. i know that no one can give any exact locations, and im not asking for that. im just simply asking for some suggestions.
1. Yes, some species grow in dung; you're probably thinking of psilocybe cubensis. 2. No. 3. Yes, it depends on the species you're hunting for. You can look around this forum to find out what species grow in Louisiana, and then search to find out the habitats of such species. 4. Some people use a wet toothbrush to clean them off, but you can clean them any way you want; just don't use much water.
1. Psilocybe cubensis & Panaeolus cyanescens (the mushrooms you're probably looking for) are coprophiliac (dung-inhabiting) species, yes. You can't just pic a mushroom from a pasture and eat it though. Research these species. http://www.shroomery.org/8461/Which-psilocybin-mushrooms-grow-wild-in-my-area 2. Myth 3. Cow fields. 4. Typically, you don't wash mushrooms because they absorb water. I understand the want to wash them if they grow from dung, and I'm not sure how people go about this. Wait around for that answer.

If your gonna eat the shrooms fresh then dont hesitate to wash with water, but if you want to dry them then you dont wanna do that. And I doubt your cooking with them, which is a primary reason not to use water when washing. I would think, if you wanted to make a tea with them, just wash um off real good and make a tea .
