journey to the seemingly perfect place
    #1697184 - 07/08/03 08:07 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

So like today, me and a friend go out to cherokeee county looking for mushrooms. We find this cow farm with like 50 acres of field. Its perfect. So, we walk around looking for 2 hours and find NOTHING. I have a few questions:

1) We found a forested area around the field and found around 30 mushrooms of all different types(none active) but the thing is, in the actuall field, we found NONE. Could this be a fungicide problem?

I find it odd that in the actuall field, we dident find ONE mushroom. And there was tons of cow patties and stuff and the conditions were perfect.

All in all it was fun, and we had a good time, no finds though :frown:

Very valid points Mr. M... It kinda sucks that such a nice field dident have anything in it though, cause we had permission to look in it. Its a HUGE place, spread out all over, and theres cow patties everywhere... if a wave of spores rolled through there it would be an explosion of mushrooms.

Maybe the field is on low-ground and it could have gotten flooded by rain recently and destroyed a good deal of the places mycelial network?

Nope, it was hilly, but some places were low to the ground... : )

How often have you looked on the pasture for mushrooms?

I'd agree, go back again. Did you flip over any cow pies? They could have just been beginning to grow... You should have checked to see if there was any mycelium growing through the pies.

I agree, shut the fuck up, QQQ.


The way it sounds, the field might have been too dry. There tends to be more humidity in the trees because the sun can't dry it up. And if you're looking for cubensis up in Cherokee County, you're probably not going to find any... that's too far north.

Same thing that I experianced today. A perfect field, theres been lots of rain, yet I found not one single damn mushroom growing from cow dung, not a one. Either one of two things, conditions weren't right, try back later and maybe have better sucsess, or the cows are being rotated from field to field and your field is inbetween cycles. The dung may be too fresh, or too old.


Fungicide, salt licks, special feed additives are all myths. Except the salt blocks, they are real, I have found them on many occasions, but they are not intended to stop mushrooms from growing. Nor do they seem to have any negative impact on mushroom growth what so ever. They are used to for commercial purposes, like weight gain etc...

Really they're rare north of the ATL Airport, but the freak cube can be found growing up to the Lake Lanier area. Once you go north of the airport your chances of finding them greatly diminish.

if you didn't find any mushrooms of any kind in the pasture i'd say it was because the meteorological conditions where inadequate. i have never seen a field where there wher never any mushrooms of any kind to my knowlege. try returning at another time, i think the chances are not bad.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Lets think this one through in terms of the Georgraphy we learned in 4th grade.

The further north from the equator you go, the colder it gets. Cubensis like warm weather. It may be warm in the summer but in the winter it gets frigid the further north you go.

In short: weather is not right for cubensis the further north you go.

Next week's lesson will be on how to make Santa Claus using just paper, red crayons, glue, and cottonballs.

I'm not so sure of the range of this species. I hear so many reports of it being found further north than its original range is thought to be. I mean, they are quite common in lower oklahoma, and can be found along the coast as far up as southern north carolina. If I were to make a map of the range of cubensis I would use the color red to indicate where they occur, it would be solid red all the way up through florida up to about Macon GA, then it would kinda get splotchy, and splotches would get smaller and more spread out there further you go north. I would say they are potentially found somewhat commonly but isolated north of atl, but not so much directly north and definitely not northwest. Stay east of ATL. You have a chance of finding them north of the airport, and I would keep looking, if for nothing more than to confirm they aren't in your area. I am searching out hwy316 right now, and the area I'm looking in looks very promising, I have strong feelings cubies are quite common in this area. I have found them in my hometown her in gwinnett, and I have found them on every exit heading out I-20 east towards augusta. Keep looking, we need more info on the range of this species, its the most commonly picked and well known hallucinogenic mushroom in America, yet its range is still debated and somewhat unknown.
