HOLY SMOKES!! Need some verification on these PICS
    #4192305 - 05/18/05 08:02 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Ok so I'm outside trimming the tree in our front yard with my girlfriend. I go sit on the porch to chill a sec, and something in the mulch in between these 2 bushes in front of me catches my eye. So I go to inspect closer, HOLY SHIT! Its a cluster of mushrooms!
A little background before I ask for confirmation of the pictures. I've never once seen any type of mushroom in our yard through the year I've rented in this townhouse. Also, they are in the spot where I dumped a bunch of excess mess I made after I spawned my bulk trays. I had made a little test casing with some WBS spawn from a jar that didn't colonize fully. So I had some leftover clumps of colonized WBS with some partially uncolonized bits. I dumped these out in the mulch in front of our porch, and also washed/dumped the jars there. I did not bury them or anything, just dumped a bunch of water as I washed stuff out on it. Now about 2 weeks later theres clumps of mushrooms growing there.

Here are some pics, the strain was GT. The only thing odd about it is that they are clumped SO close together that the caps are like smushed together and can't open it appears. I guess maybe it could be like that since the mycellium network beneath is probably pretty small.

Anyway, without anymore delay...here they are -









If you look closely in the 3rd and 4th picture around the clusters you can see a sunflower seed, and a couple other peices of seed that are laying on top of the mulch still.

So, what do you all think? If they mature a bit you think they'd be good to consume? Or are they even P. Cubensis? I don't see how they couldn't be.

Thanks folks,
LE

It's not P cubensis.
It looks like Coprinus micaceus to me.
Sorry.

problem being mulches will carry alot of different mushroom strains around with them. every year i see different ones from the various mulches we use throughout our gardens. make sure before you eat.
peace

Could you elaborate on what leads you to this decision please @cro?

They look like they're hardly matured yet so maybe its tough to say this soon?

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck....

They just look like Coprinus to me, specifically micaceus.
If you still think it is Psilocybe go pick one. It doesn't matter how young they are, they will still bruise blue if they are.
But I'm betting they won't.

Other actives bruise blue and some inactives.
But Coprinus won't.
Here check them out yourself, read the description, I think you'll see what I mean.

I'd have to agree with that description, especially about fruiting in clusters, however I didn't notice these "glistening particles" on the caps. Well I guess time may bring those out. I'll pick and look for any bluing, at least if it doesn't blue I know 100% they aren't cubensis. Thanks for your input @cro I appreciate it.

Buy a microscope to see if a small patch of mushrooms in my mulch are P. Cubensis? Hardly economical.

They aren't anyways so its moot now.
