Dung Varieties
    #4192689 - 05/18/05 09:38 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Does anyone know if elephant dung works well. I have access to the dung coming from the local zoo. It's most likely mixed with other animals dung too.

I mostly use it for my vegetable garden.

Thx,

hardwaters

I've never seen it used on gardens but it's probably great for it, I know that it's cude for cubies though...

Elephant dung is along the same line of cow poo for consistency. I.E. it's very thick stuff and will need to be fluffed with straw or lots of verm for a cubensis application.

So after I pasturize it, I should mix it with vermiculite?

It's funny that your most convenient choice of doo is from an elephant.  :smile: 
If you're near an elephant, you're probably near a horse too... go near it and pick up some of those turds.  You'll be better off.

Oddly enough no. The elephant dung is only about a mile away while horse / cow dung is 20 or so miles away. Unless of course I go to home depot to buy some.

I live next to a horse stable and there is alot of horse shit around.
1. There shit in a field which is heavily used and devoid completely of any grass and full of piss and likely actually HARMS the environment... at least that combined with lots of other fields.

2. There is horse shit in a cool (cool temp) relatively clean, healthy forest on paths. They are walked on often so there isn't much of a chance for mushroom growth except at the sides and not in the summer due to children.

3. Converted horse field, now just regular grass and random weeds (lots of them... including mine)with potential rotting grass and hay ontop of old horse shit I think.

4. There is horse shit in direct sunlight in a less polluted looking section of land. Often gets very hot.

5. I could potentially put horse shit anywhere I want... under any conditions so let me know if you can think of some outdoors which will naturally attract the Psilocybe coprophila and Panaeolus subbalteatus species which I've heard are very common around where I live.

I was wondering whether somebody here could let me know which conditions (out of the above) are the best suited for Psilocybe coprophila and Panaeolus subbalteatus... because these are the conditions that I will try to recreate and search for.

This isn't really the kind of information that's in the guides, they don't mention really specific things like full sunlight or whatever.

I'm gonna post this elsewhere, I've been getting really interested in mushrooms and that kind of stuff (not just psychedelic) how they grow and stuff in like a single day. It seems like every time a generation dies in my backyard another immediately moves in and the mushrooms change for the next generation.

currently these are the pictures I have uploaded and there are about 4 more varieties that I would like to post. Thanks for actually reading this... and I know that you are... otherwise we wouldn't be talking would we?

Elephant dung is excellent!~

that is what Zoo Doo is made from!~

Zoo Doo is $12.95 for a 3 gallon bucket...here locally.

Orissa India grows best off Elephant dung or horse poo.

I had some monster O/I's grow off horse poo.
20" to 22" long...cap's were 6" to 8" wide...and the weight on them were 160 to 180 grams.
