Wood dwelling cubensis part 2 (habitat pics)
    #611107 - 04/17/02 07:38 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Sorry, I'm kinda in a hurry so I have to be brief (been working 12 hour days, never have time anymore)

The following pics are of the cubensis I've been finding in woodshavings and horse dung. One of the pics shows black, dead, dried up cubies, ones I missed this year, you can only imagine what they looked like in their prime, clustered up like that, there were dead clusters of 20+ cubensis! I also have a pic of the grounds I'm picking on so you can get an idea what this place looks like. I also have pics of Panaeolus that grow everywhere out there, just trying to prove that dung lovers(not only cubensis) can and will grow from wood, and have a tendency to cluster because of it. The last two pictures are not the wood loving cubensis, they are regualr cow shit cubes, but still picture worthy!

Here they are...











And here is a shot of the general habitat where I pick these.



LK,

Here are the giant dead clusters, look close and you'll see new pins coming up around the old clusters.


Here are the inactive Panaeolus that grow EVERYWHERE in the wood shaving piles.





These last two pictures are of cow dung cubensis, nothing out of the ordinary, but still very nice :smile: The group shot on the pavement does include the wood lover cubes on the top row, all others are cow dung cubes.

Holy shit man... I've got a spot up near me that is *identical* to the pictures of the habitat that you have pictured. The only thing I've found there of interest are Pan microsporia, and Pan pampinilous(sp?). The other mushrooms I find there are those brown dunce caps and those Pan sub look-a-likes, they cover the entire place, but no cubes.
Too bad those Pans you found aren't active :\

Peace out,
-Gumby

Great pics, L King. Do you know if the wood chips are hardwood?
Do cubes fruit on pine or fir, conifers?

Check out the habitat picture I added gumby, its a shot of all the piles of woodchips, if you have a place like this I'd keep an eye on it.


About what kind of chips they are, I have no idea, but I bet its some type of hardwood.

Well damn, you have like a whole field of that stuff. Thats crazy, we've got a few hills of it, probaly the size of the mounds that you have, but it doesn't the size of a field like yours does. I'll keep looking :smile:

Peace out,

what species of panaeolus is that LK?
are you certain they are inactive?
they dont look like antilarium or sphinctrinus.
not much anyway. youre probably right of course, i really cant tell from that pic tho, they are so dark. there isnt much danger in eating a few dispite the possibility of stomach upset anyway :smile:
as for those cubes, theyre as cute as a chinese baby with a pail of kittens!
tough looking too, i bet they are low in water content.
what you have is a strain that likes horse dung and woodshavings.
such a habitat is common around stables. such a strain however, is uncommon, a shovelfull of that substrate can probably be transplated around from dunheap to dungheap.
try one of those big-ass heaps behind a cow barn, the ones that are near the dung-exit and all choked up with bedding and
straw.  you never find them in those because they are always being moved and stacked upon untill they farmer decides to spread the dung for fertilizer. some years however you have an excess of shit.  this is when you get places like what youve found there.  they take 2-3 years to decompose from a heap into a flat rich bed of panaeolus.
find some excess heaps and seed them.  it will be worth it im sure.  make sure to add something with air exchange like straw into the spots you seed, and do this at the beginning of the wettest season.
in my personal experience, planting some fast growing weeds
in the area provides good shade for mushroom growing, some good choices are ragweed and marijuana. (marijuana grows very well in this habitat and is also marijuana)
i wish i lived out there, im stuck in the city. guess it will be a few more years till i get out and can really mess around with wild farm shrooms again. :frown:
basically try this trick next time you go hunting as a side quest then let the shrooms do all the dirty work while you do the 12-hour shift work then as fate would have it, youre day off will fall on a wet miserable day.
and badda boom badda bing. youve incresed the wild yeald.
make sure you fill the holes from any samples you take for transplant so you dont inadvertadly dry out the mother bed by opening a vent into it.
the decaying wood and dung creates heat. this might be why they are growing so well. you want to keep a strong top layer on it to maintain that golden homeostasis.
try it :smile:

The clusters of Panaeolus mushrooms are Panaeolus campanulatus. They are not psychoactive.

Also remember that the mushrooms are growing fromthe manure. They just happen to have woodchips mixed with the manurte.

I have seen cubies before that were grown in woodchips but the end results and yield were not worth the cultivation.

I also see these Panaeolus growing in Hawaii in these mixtures of woodchips and manure and also in Oregon in hay mixed with manure and many Panaeolus subbalteatus

See image posted below.











All of the above images came from a site with hay and manure and stable shavings plus sea shells and nut shells.

mjshroomer, those are excellent photos of pan subbs

i spotted a cluster of Gymnopilus lutefolius a minute ago in the library flowerbed (sarasota florida), they are beautiful. Does that mushroom grow up in washington by you also?

I am going to grab those shroomies on my way out and make spore deposits of them :smile:

keep shroomin,
gg
