Growing on elephant shit.
    #2827607 - 06/25/04 12:41 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Well some friends and I usually go through this hiking path. THe path goes right along the borders of the zoo. A couple weeks ago we stumbled upon a GIANT feild with elephant shit everywhere. We found A LOT (1,000+) Corpirus (?) mushrooms growing on some of the poop. Two weeks ago I brought 6 colonized pf tek jars and made a hole in some of the piles and used moe's outdoor tek. I layered straw from the feeding straw and elephant manure and the spawn. I did about 4 of these and cased with peat/verm. Where I live the temps are usually 21-32 for 3-4 months from now. Will I be ok? I will get pictures as soon as I see progress. Also if anyone has a spare orissa indian print I would be glad to trade it for some free elephant shit :laugh: (shipping not included)

Did u cut the straw into thin lengths and soak for 24hrs? If not, that might cause some problems if theres not enough water but I don't think the mycelliums gonna have any trouble spawning to elephant shit.
Good luck!
Btw, have u checked for progress yet?

yeah... keep us up to date on how this works... not like any of the rest of us have access to elephant poo, but it'd be interesting to see.

It'd be funny as hell if it turns out that you grow a new breed of supershroom on it... lol

The best part is the mycelium will never stop spawning :smile: One more question, can mycelium survive a harsh winter? Our winters can get as cold as -30C.

Wow, finally someone else that has access to zoopoo. I walk down the path next to the local zoo and they fence in the elephant shit. I know exactly what day they bring the new shit each week also. However, they add more hay to the piles and turn the new shit over with the older shit once in a great while. There are no huge trees around to shade the area, so I'm thinking the hot days, probably stunt the growth of anything developing, but I have seen non-psilocibin mushrooms thriving during cooler humid weeks. I'm thinking i might case some pf cakes outdoor with some not too old shit, away from the main fenced in area of course. IS this a good idea?? Or would p. cube be better cased with something else?

I plan to go check my patches in a couple of days and see how theyre doing.


EDIT>
Alright I checked the spots and I can see colonization but not very much. I got 2 jars full of aged shit which i hydrated then injected with Penis Envy spores and I can see colonization after a week. I'll keep updated and pictures soon.
