The obvious answer (the one you don't want) is that they come from the mushrooms. The purpose of the mushrooms is to produce spores so they can reproduce.

Those spores float around in the air and land everywhere. Fungal spores are an important component of dust. If some of those spores land in a place that is suitable for them to grow in, they germinate.

Every breath you take has fungus spores, typically on the order of about 100.

Happy mushrooming!

To begin with only about 25 of the more than 190 species of psilocybian mushrooms grow on manure. Most grow in manured soils or in woodchip mulches over topsoils.

The spores are attached to the gillplates and disperse when the caps of the mushrooms open up. Usually falling on blades of surrounding grasses or woodchips and then spreading through mycelia throughout the area where the mushrooms appear.

Then new shrooms grow later on. Cows shit on grasses with shroom spores deposited on them or are transfeerred to nearby areas from wind-traveling and also from cattle eating mushrooms which are common in the grazing fields where they roam. That is a just but a few of the many methods for spore dispersal.

Would it be posible that birds and other animals can carry spores on there feathers and fur and if the bird or animal happens to go across a cow field or land in one the spores can easily brush off in the grass?

Yes, birds and other four-legged ruminants carry spores acros areas form one place to another, however, the majority of shrooms which appear in pasturelands comes form the spores falling on blades of grass and then the cow shits on the area where the spores are already deposited.

However, translplanted patches of PNW shrooms (P. azurescens) are plantred in many other states and in many countries in europe, but they never appear other than where the transplants were planted.

Gartz maintains a few in Germany since the early 1990s, buit his collections never have spread to other areas of Leipzig where he resides.

Same wioth friends in Italy, France, Germany and Bulgaria who also transplanted Azures. And the same in Michigan, New York and New Mexico as well as someone in Arizona.

have a shroomy day
