I've read all the faq's on the site, and have learned that cubensis grows in 70+ temps and 80% humidity, and p.S. grows at 75+ at the same humidity, and other all important facts. I have found thousands of alluring cow fields, and have scoured them under the cover of night when the conditions were right. Yet im still empty handed. Does it matter what species cow it is? Does it matter if they are grain fed or not? Basically, im asking for tips on locating a cow field that will produce. In other words, If a cubensis had its choice on where to grow, where would it grow? Sorry im so damn inquisitive, but i've been really frustrated over the matter. Plus, when i start finding the "right" places, i wont bother ya'll any more.. Anyways i appreciate the help.
Tonight we had a bad ass thunderstorm in my area. As of now (sat morning), the current weather condition in my area are: 70+ for several days and in the low to high 70's for the next two, 95% humidity, 1.30" of rain (33.02 mm)today alone, 68.9 soil temp, .38 soil moiture (g of H20/g of soil). Info courtesy of my college's bio dept...nice to have huh? As a beginer in mycology i would consider these to be prime conditions for the species i am looking for, since this is the first time my area has had a substantial rainfall along with the right temperature. Opinions??
My best finds have been 36 hours after a big storm like that. As to where they grow its kinda just random chance. Just keep looking and eventually you'll find a producing field that you can call your own. I have one specific field thats mine and i don bother with any others. I even built up the courage to ask the farmer for permission and he said yes.
Yea, i was planning on going out tonight after the rain and prolly sun night too. Did you bullshit the farmer(no pun)? or was it like ...Hey, i wanna pick some mushrooms so i can trip, can i? I'd prefer asking the farmer, that way we wont get shot or charged with trespassing. I've HEARD of people getting charged with prowling, due to the dark clothes/camoflauge they wear. So findinding the right field isnt so much as the ecosystem, but rather chance? Are there any "signs" that make a field more desireable? If i hit up all the cow pastures in my region it would take days to cover them.
