Cubensis on Horse Manure?
    #2841130 - 06/29/04 09:22 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Well, while making my rounds today I noticed something interesting under a stand of oak trees; what looked like a lone cubensis.
After checking it out, I am quite sure it's a cube; it blues, the print checks out.

What puzzled me about this is that, after digging through those leaves some I found that it was growing directly from horse manure; which makes sense being that the only animal in this area is a horse.
I was under the impression that it is  extremely rare to find cubensis directly on horse manure in the wild.
The only thing I can figure that led to it is an outdoor patch of mine that is about 30 yards away. It fruited recently, EQ strain.
So is this mushroom just an odd occurrence caused by my near-by outdoor growing?
It certainly looks a lot more like an eq then our local strain.
(After checking the spot again I noticed many small pins around where the base of this mushroom was. :smile: )

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

Wow awesome man.And yeah I think it might be your patch because as far as I understand it is the reason cubes don't grow in horse manure is because horses' stomachs are to acidic so it kills the spores, but if spores from your patch did make their way to the cow manure I suppose that would do it.

The eagle may soar, but the weasel never gets sucked up into a jet intake.

One of the two best producing fields I've ever seen was a horse pasture in SC.

my first cube find was in horse manure... it's more rare, because a spore has to land in the poo, where as a cow can eat the spore that landed on the grass and shit out natures best cake.

That's a cube for sure.

There's been quite a few horse manure finds this year.
