Copez in Central Tex
    #3477454 - 12/10/04 06:31 PM (12 years, 1 day ago)

went out for a lil looksee at what i might find today with the warm warm weather after these small showers we've been blessed with.. Found a handful of copes, 1 cube- which makes me wonder cause they were everyywhere when I went out a month ago after the floods. And now... the field is getting bare.

Some nice fruits tho with outrageous bluing on the caps and stemz--







sorry, no habitat pics- Didnt think I was really going to find anything.


Now my question..... I havent tripped in 1wk or so.. and Have never really tripped on fresh copes- mostly dried ones and fresh cubes... So- Is that tiny fresh amount going to be enough for me or no? thanks for any help/comments

Although sometimes, Copes and cubes will fruit overnight in fresh manure, it is becasue of spores and mycelia growing int he cows stomach.

It normally takes four to six weeks for the manure to decompose.

i have posted images of cow-pies with mycelia growing under them from spore deposits ont he grass below where the cow shits. That is just one of the many ways for the copes to fruit.

mj

Cows usually eat copes and cubes when grazing so spores also get into the cattles stomachs. Others the spores blow around the pastures, and still the cows eat the shrooms and spore deposits ont he grass.
have a shroomy day

7 minutes with me.buti'm speaking of the initial buzz. i had no mirror to speak of. 30 or so honey soaked copes did it. with tortilla chips...perhaps it was the chips...one never can tell . could it be a metabolism thing? might have been 50 copes. varying sizes...i dont weigh...i just eat and wait for instruction, that hard to catch ego loss and of course...the rivers in the grained wood. but yeah...7 minutes. i was suprised too. makes you the type of person to love suprises, doesnt it? lol

Hey cube.  I found a good dozen or so copes today also.  Bunch of cubes.  I didn't take a camera, and the copes didn't make it home.  :grin:  :mushroom2:  I was suppose to wait until New Years, but I guess I'm not going to make it that long.  Oh my oh my I feel magic in the brain.  Have a good night fellas, mine is gettin goin.
