Liberty Caps.. General questions...
    #3292796 - 10/29/04 06:10 AM (19 years, 6 months ago)

I wonder if someone can help me here... I have a few unanswered questions...


2. Between about 7 and 10 years ago I found a field and we picked about 4000 mushrooms, the year after that there was no mushrooms on that field and there hasn't been since..
Any explanations? apart from someone beating me to it.. and this isn't possible as the field backs on to my friends back garden and we/he look almost every day of the mushroom season.

3. Can I pick, or dig the grass up - where the mushrooms are growing and plant it in my garden so that they will grow in my garden?
or can I grow them in another way?

4. Whats the difference between liberty caps and the cubensis shrooms? (in potency, not physical apperarance)

Thanks peeps

1) Any where were sheep cattle or deer graze. Exact locations are a no no here.

2)Who knows, maybe its not grazed anymore, maybe you just got the timing wrong. Last year was a poor season in the uk, due to it being too dry, but this year is booming.

3) doesnt really work, or hasnt for me, even with added sheep poo
to the grass i couldnt get any to take.

4) weight for weight liberty caps are stronger, maybe twice as stron from experiance. They also have a slightly different chemical make up, making the trip a little different.

As Loki aswered 1, 3 and 4, I second those. But as for question 2, the mycelium only fruits fungi for about 3/4/5 years or so, then dies off. But 4000 you say, it must have been in its prime element then.  :wink:

Thanks for your quick replies.

these mushies grew on a football field.
in fact all the places I get liberty caps are either golf courses, cricket pitches or football fields. Never where sheep or cows graze.

But this year, I have found 12 mushies. I really need a good location.

Another question. I have some shrooms that have been in an airtight jar for over a year, can I still make a tea out of them?

Thing is, they are far more easy to spot on football fields and golf course, but grow far more commonly on grazed grass. Though there harder to spot, as the grass is longer.


The football field might explane why they dissapeared. The grounds keeper might well of used cow slurry to fertilise the pitch back then, and might be using chemical fertilisers now. This is a common reason for a nice field to become a shit field.

yes, as long as they were well dryed, and well stored the should still be active. Have a good look at them and make suree there are no fuzzy moulds on them first.
