While exploring/mushroom hunting the other day, I came across a pile of old hay beginning to rot. It had just rained so I was confident I would find Panaeolus subbalteatus, but there were none growing. I explored more and found a little tunnel of trees leading to a clearing with two piles of compost and hay. I was sure I would find some subbs here, but again no dice. Is it worth checking these spots frequently throughout the rest of summer and fall? Could the mushrooms be fruiting later or might there just not be mycelium in the piles? Should I take my paper with subbalteatus spore prints on it and bury it in the hay hoping that mycelium will grow and mushrooms will fruit? Thanks
