Psilocybe semilanceata in dung...
    #864412 - 09/04/02 10:11 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Hello everyone!

Just wanted you guys to know about this, I picked a few kilos of horse poo some days back and have had it drying in a spot in my garden. When I came to check it today after a heavy rainfall tonight, there is small Liberty Caps growing in the dung. Not that large, but many. Looked under the dung just to find fluffy white mycelium growing ...

And, where I live in Norway it is hard to find those Liberty Caps atleast in my local area. Took som pics of it, but my digital camera suck big time. So, I was better of telling you guys instead ...

Hmm... I was told in a reply to one of my posts that liberty caps don't grow actually IN the dung but around it in the grass. Can anyone clarify this for me?

Psilocybe semilanceta is a manured soil mushroom. They grow in the tall rank grasses witht heir roots of mycellium attached to such wild grasses, especially sedge grass.

P. strictipes grows in manure and macroscopically resembles a liberty cap but again they do not grwo from horse manurem cows and sheep manure is their habitat.

Pleezer, it is the manured soil fromthe year before which resettles backi into the earth and the liberties attached their mycelium to the roots of those grasses.

Sometimes, but rarely they have been found in the arboretum here in Seattle and on a few lawns in Tukwilla over the last 25 years but more so in pasture and grazing lands of cattle and sheep and rarely in fields with horses ever.

In Oregon onthe coast they are common on golf course lawns but they never get a stem taller than a few inches becasue of the perpetual lawn care byut hte landscappers.

In England they appear along side roads and in parks.
mj plus of course inthe fields.
