First hunt and first find....yey!
    #4329113 - 06/23/05 05:34 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Well I must say that I am one excited individual today! By the way I am very new to the Shroomery but have been a big fan and on-looker for a very long time, so I want to say hello and share my findings with you all today.

These mushrooms were found in the ideal area for the growth of Psilocybe Cubensis. In a cow pasture, but a part of the pasture under a forested area. They were found growing directly on cow dung and very visible to the eye. I found three mushrooms, two of which are still quite wet and the third had been drying already. The tops of the mushrooms were golden with the darker brown nipple on top. One of the mushrooms had a veil still entirely attached and stained purple due to the spores. The stems were bruised the classic blue-green color and the scent of the mushrooms was that of a fresh mushroom. I have not measured the caps but I do have photographs of the mushrooms and the two wet mushroom caps have been removed from their stem in order to get a spore print. My main focus of mushroom for starting has been the Psilocybe Cubensis because I have exhaustedly read on it and seen thousands of pictures. I am very familiar with what they should look like and and 99% certain that all three of these are of this particular species. The remaining 1% is for someone to back up my conclusion. If I have missed any description's to validate this post then I am terribly sorry. I would just like to say hello to all and share my very exciting first!! finds with you wonderful people. Here are the pictures.



These below are the two wet caps I found. Currently in the pic they are sitting on white paper to collect a print :smile:





Let me know what you all think....Hope to hear from some of you soon.

yeah, and those gills are too white...
Double check the one you got the gill shot of in the first pic to make sure its a cube. If it is, then it must be sterile.

The one with the whiter gills have lots of bluing on the stem and the bottom section of the cap where the "bit" portion is in fact bluing radically. I apologize for the blurry pics. I will in face take another picture of the whiter gilles cube though. It isn't entirely white either, it is browning or tanning if you will as it is drying. Im certain it is a cube but any speculation will be taken into consideration. This mushroom will remain out of my stomach until I can upload a better pic of the bluing taking place on it for confirmation. Thanks on all of your replies. Pic will come shortly.

I suspect the whiter gills were do to the lighting and flash that I did not want to occur from the camera. Plus I must add that this mushroom looked exactly like this when I picked it earlier today. It was not at wet as the others and seemed a bit more mature if you ask me. To be even extra sure and careful though I will take a spore-print along with the upcoming pics. Damn cameras!!!!! Trust me, once I can get a good enough picture you will see the bluing. The bottom and middle of stem are bluing nicely and there is bluing inside the gills and around the portion that is missing.

I can see no reason to suspect that the one with white gills is Psilocybe cubensis.

I would not eat that one if I were you.

you give me an idea PSiFr33k.
Print the shroom in question. If theres no spore print, then you have a sterile cube. Otherwise, toss it!

The suspected white gilled cap is no longer white....it is bluing like mad all over the gills....I conclude cubensis, I will have the pick tomorrow ....it smells just like a cube and the stem it was attached to is identical to the others and bluing probably more than the others
