What is the natural enviroment for Cubensis.....?
    #1356168 - 03/07/03 05:25 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I'd like to know more about the natural habitat of the Cubensis mushroom. This would really help me understand the growing conditions and the enviromental changes that you have to replicate at home. Any sources.....?

Within us all resides a world not grey but evergreen.

well, I believe some cubensis grow in forests around trees and all that. but cow shit seems pretty natural if you ask me. They just like growing dat shit.

Psilocybe Cubensis are habitat specific. Meaning, they cannot grow in the wild, unless their habitat provides a suitable environment, along with sufficient natural nutrients. Over the millennia, they have evolved inherent genetic traits best suited for their continuous survival in specific geographic area's they successfully inhabit.

All fungi feed by absorption of nutrients. Because of the huge range of potential nutrient sources, fungi evolved enzymes suitable for the specific environments in which they are generally found. The range of enzymes, though wide in may species, is not sufficient for survival in all environments.

Psilocybe Cubensis excrete a complex array of genetically predetermined enzymes for digestion. The enzymes are present in multiple forms, based on a single inherent genetic sequence, and include a range of isoenzymes, which arise from different inherent genetic sequences.

Simply stated, Psilocybe Cubensis excrete enzymes into the organic material in which their underground mycelia (root) system naturally grow. Those enzymes degrade nutrients there, into simple soluble forms of sugars and amino acids, which are then easily absorbed into the mycelia network. Resulting in them acquiring all essential elements with which to grow fruit bodies, and spores (seed) by which they propagate their species.

It is common knowledge that most strains of Psilocybe Cubensis flourish in select warm moist habitats worldwide, associated where horses, cattle and water buffalo naturally spread bovine type manure. Consequently, Psilocybe Cubensis developed inherent genetic traits, enabling then to excrete specific enzymes best suited to enable them to specifically dissolve, digest and take up nutrients available from bovine type manure, and/or soil enriched with it.

Therefore, Psilocybe Cubensis own inherent genetic traits attest that bovine type manure alone, or soils highly enriched with it, is best suited to their nutrient needs, in the wild.

Taking that fact, one step further. Aged leached dry bovine type manure, when aerobically composted together with a percentage of other select fruits, vegetables, grains and straw provides an even more enriched super nutrient source for cultivation of Psilocybe Cubensis . Moreover, a compost of this type provides an ideal moist subsurface habitat (substrate) that, Psilocybe Cubensis mycelia will colonize faster than any other.

the life cycle basically starts when some shrooms drop their spores.  the slightest breeze spreads these spores all over the meadow, pasture or whatever type field the animal may be in.

a common field grazer is the cow..as they graze the field, chewing their cud, they most definately eat sporulated grass, hay or whatever food is spread about.  inside their warm, moist stomach is where the mycelium develops and gets churned about.  making it's way through the cow, the cow takes a shit.  the outside of the shit patty gets baked by the sun or dries out a little while further colonizing.  then, after a rain or the morning dew...the cakes get a little moist and pins develop.

that's the best time to go hunting.  after a rain.  the early bird gets the worm  :wink:
