    New Found Wild Cubes! Lots of New pics 7/25

    so i had to go get a big batch of horse poo from my usual place. they have a new horse and therefore are making more poo for me to get. i had my bags and shovel ready and was walking around to the stable where i get it from and i saw on the paddock beside the stable a bunch of mushrooms growing outside the stable where the horses shit the most. i was thinking in the back of my head wouldn't it be cool if they were cubes? then i got up to em and was like shit those ARE cubes! a bunch of em, i got a pile out of there and then some were still pins/teens so i just let those sit and finish growing. the rest of the poo is heavily colonized and won't be any good for mush growing so i'm planning to maybe dig a hole and put all the colonized and uncolonized poo i can in there and hopefully it will recover and start growing more shrooms. some of the pins look like dicks reminiscent of pe, you can see them in the pics. this makes three fields i have found close by that have shrooms, although this horse pasture is about a forty min drive one way. enjoy!

    :bowR:WOW! :bowL:

    I guess indirectly you are right rogue, we do spread them.

    With our live stock.

    In nature animals do much better of a job than us.
    Our cows ingest the spores which once released form the fruits land on their food while they graze.

    They literally eat the spores and shit them out at which point they will germinate once the sun pasteurizes the poo naturally & leeches it.

    The funny thing is that after all that we come along and fuck up growing them indoors, :laugh:

    A cow can take a dump on them and they'll grow but let a human touch them and it can be mold central!
    Its really funny if you think about it.

    The cubes where the major lives come from Florida. The farmers trade cows and this is how they move around.

    So if you were to take one of those prints you could consider it "Gulf Coast Var. Major Myc/1gen/Wild"

    yeah it's amazing, this area they were growing in was maybe a hundred square feet five inches of poo pulverized and leeched and all and it was basically totally colonized by cubes, imagine a ten foot by ten foot mono tub four to six inches deep and thats what you got out there, they were coming up from everywhere all around it, but not a solid canopy of course. the poo is well broken down i don't know if thats the first flush but it was something to see for sure. the caps had all cracked just about and i wish i could have found them in their prime.

    by no human intervention i meant no one inoculated any grain and spawned it to it i should have been more clear.

    all that mycelium and NO visible mold, i'm sure there was some here and there but if it was it was isolated and sparse, just goes to show how well balanced nature is when it just happens.

    hurricanes are also a reason the spores are up here from the gulf coast and florida. we live 800 miles inland and when katrina got here it was still classified as a tropical depression, no telling how many spores came up with that one, everytime a hurricane hits the coast we get rains for days. swapping cattle and horses is probably the top route they take though i would imagine.

    thanks man, i couldn't just leave em there to rot! there should be more out there when it rains again, i'll probably need poo for the garden by then, lol won't be as many this time probably, i wish i could have taken pics of them out there but didn't want to draw any attention to them. the pins i set aside are maturing now, some very nice looking "strains" in this gene pool, but also pretty tight to one standard as a lot of them look pretty similar.
