The temperature of the substrate ranges from 88-98°f, air temperature has been between 75-85°f during the day and dropping to the 55°-60°f at night with humidity in the 18-20% during the day time hours. This has been excellent conditions with the exception of the low humidity for monster cubes on this pile. It has consistently made monsters and I want to know what makes them so big and the potency is out of this world, the best I've ever had comes from here, hose poo compost makes for higher concentration of active indoles in my experience,  I would bet that the psilocin content is very high in comparison to the ones that I find in the pastures.

I’ve found the thicker the grass the healthier the field so more mushrooms but I’ve also found them growing by the dozen in thin carpet grass and soil with sparse nutgrass(garbage). As long as the pasture is or has been grazed by a good amount of cattle and the condition are right.

If I were to guess the pasture with soil exposed would do better in the cooler periods and the thicker pasture in warmer.

tall grass in summer is about the only place to find them in summer when the rain is not plentiful.

Ya I’ve noticed that. The nutgrass I mentioned grows in tall clumps it’s a really shitty grass but when the suns out and hot you will find them worked in the clumps.

They do use light to initiate pinning and trekking the mushrooms what direction to grow. They may not feed off light, but they do utalize light.

I was talking only about grass, but yes you are right.

edit: I should have clarified what I meant.

Date: April 21 2020

Time found:
From 8am- 1pm

Temperature:
65-73

are temperatures at or above 95°f?
(N/a

General location:
Since we are beginning the season I find them in the middle of the field. Never in the woods or wood line. That is summer areas.

# of days since last rain:
It rained a lot yesterday everything was soaked

fog or dew present:
Some dew early on in my hunt


Humidity:
I'm not real sure on the humidity but I will guess about 45-50

Substrate:
Mostly cow manure but you can find cubes anywhere near a pasture. And the spores will carry away from the field and in the yard.

Area found:
Open pasture, Short grass, directly from manure, all were found in the middle of the field. I wasted my time looking in the woods and tree lines

include pictures with data collection sheet.

This season is just starting to kick off. My favorite time is the beginning of the season because they are all in the field and easy to spot. As it gets hotter they tend to grow in the shady areas.

other:
I am always careful and very gently cut my cubies with scissors I take great care and respect my fields.



Date:

Time found:
(morning, afternoon, evening, night.)

Temperature:
(If temperature is at freezing or below, how many days have temperatures been at or below freezing?)

are temperatures at or above 95°f?
(if yes, for how many days or weeks?)

General location:
(do not post exact location, nearest town or city)

# of days since last rain:
(If recently rained, how many successive days did it rain?):

fog or dew present:
( yes or no):

Humidity:
Relative humidity is fine but if possible please use a soil hygrometer with a thermometer to measure water content and substrate temperature.
( Provide as much information as possible)

Substrate:
(Cow manure, Horse manure, compost or soil.)

Area found:
(Tall grass, open pasture, Short grass, under tree(s) , leaf litter, soil, directly from manure, etc.)

include pictures with data collection sheet.

Appreciate all the info here guys. I’m in Texas near Boerne and have access to a field with lots of cow patties but haven’t been finding anything. The daytime highs have been low 90s and I feel like it’s too dry even after it rains. Anyone had luck in this area and if so win. Most of the successes on this thread seem to be in more humid areas. Would I need to go at sunrise before it gets hot? Anyone tried covering patties after it rains to keep patty humid? I need help and greatly appreciate any advice for south central Texas hunting, thanks.

Maybe it’s because those grasses make them harder too find, lol. I’ve gotta look into how to identify grass species, but often times when I push through a few tall patches of grass, I find some pretty solid mushroom patches hiding in there.

Boerne will probably be too dry to find them easily but you can increase you’re chances if you study and work the fields. Look for a healthy pasture next to a wooded creek or pond with a large cattle herd to increase you’re chances.

Please keep post to data or pertinent information about the growth  of the species,  this is not a thread for asking questions about finding mushrooms. Any and all irrelevant posts after this warning will be deleted in order to keep the thread on topic and about the growth of wild Psilocybe cubensis. I have no interest in cultivated Psilocybe cubensis,  my focus is on wild Ps. cubensis that is not being tended in any way by humans,  natural occurrence only.
