It's a pleasure to look at your cubes overgrow. You always seem to photograph them at their prime. Keep 'em coming.

Hi Paid,

Liberty caps also grow in short grass and in some sheep fields they are very visable.

I have a photo somewhere form a large field in Oregon where i stand up and you can see the caps all over. I will look fopr it. The fields ran for miles near WEst lake by Florence Oregon.

Well I could not dfind the liberty cap in oregon field photo right now but here is a picture of some of the liberty caps found on a lawn in the arboretum in 1976. I would have posted it in the other thread but Gundby Dude went power tripping on me and locked the liberty cap thread.



enjoy.

MJ, you found those in an arboretum, which I assume is outdoors, so I guess that means that they use fertilizer at that arboretum?

They were only on that lawn in the Seattle arboretum for three years and then never came back again. And in America, they are extremely rare in lawns.. HEre their main habitat is pasturelands. In oregon the same, yet they do grow on lawns at golf courses along the Oregon coast. Of course no one want sot oget hit in the head with a goldf ball. I myself was rather lucky. I got whacked int he leg one year. Took almost four months for the limp to go away.

OIn England and Europe they appear on lawns in many public parks. I have only found small amounts of liberty caps on Lawns in the PNW about five times in thirty years and that was a one to two years small fruitings at SOuth **** in the early 1980s and the nice find in the arboretum.

I only got between 400 to 600 shrooms every four to five days from the arboretum lawn.

But some pastures they can be very prolific.

IT was becasue they had just fertilized the lawn. I was there with Jerry from the indoor Sun Shoppe to play some frisbee and when I missed the frisbee I bent down to retrieve it and saw the liberty caps inthe grass.

Thyat was in 1976. the fall of 1978 was the end of the shrooms on that lawn. They never came back.

The first lawn here I found mushrooms on was July 2, 1974. I was sitting onthe lawn in Volunteer Park at the *** with my wife and kid. We were smoking a doobie and I was playing my guitar and my wife asked me who we were going to get to drive us to a pasture in the fall to pick liberty caps. That is when i looked down ont he ground and noticed the mini-cubes (blue-ringers). At least I thought that they looked like little minature cubensis and all, especially with their little bluish ring on the stem.

Those only lasted a few years.

I later took some to the UW for Dr. Daniel Stuntz to identify for me. He told me they were Psilocybe cyanescens, an honest mistake because they macroscopically resembled Psilocybe cyanescens in their wavy cap stage.

Later we learned that they were a newly named species. At the time they also were only know to exist in the Seattle area around the pugot Sound.

Two years later in 1980, Jonathan Ott reported them from Milwaukee Oregon and Lake Oswego, Oregon.

In 1991, Jochen Gartz and I discovered an 80 pound patch in the **** Parking lot of the **** Shopping Center in Eugene Oregona. of course they were all gone when we came to Oregon the next year for another lecture at The **** Retreat and Conference Center in Lake Detroit, Oregon.

And that brings up another important note, for those who tapp mushroom caps for th spores to fall in places where no shrooms grow. It doesn't work that waty. They need a total environment the same as where they came form and if the right nutrients, phosphates, Nitrogens and fertilizers are not in the sod they will not grow.

Evr wonder why you have that special patch and then two years larter they do not come up anymore. Well that is becasue they have run their course.

mj
And have a shroomy day.
