    When you find them like this...and many (this time 4 or 5) different kinds... How do you know that they are non-toxic?

    you just have to know which ones are cubes, they look pretty much just like they do indoors.

    But.. aren't there so many similar shrooms? And indoor most of them look very different from strain to strain to me...
    Do you use some other tests? I know about 'blueing' if you touch them but then again there are some other shrooms who do the same and are not cubes...

    it's generally accepted that they look different indoors but ime the ones outdoors look just like indoor ones. the reason they look different indoors is usually due to the environmental conditions, you won't find many with a ripply sausage neck or furry myc feet outside but by and large they look the same. there are some "strains" that look different than regular cubes but in nature no one has isolated for a different look. take a look at the pics here, most all of them look just like indoor cubes. as for poisonous ones that look like cubes i haven't found any, down here at least. there are only a few deadly poisonous ones but i've never found them on poo, only in the woods. the short of it is that once you know what a cube looks like you can hunt them with a pretty good degree of confidence and once you've found some you know what you are looking for. you can go by spore color, smell, veil on the stipe, bluing, etc. i don't know how to put it except that once you find them the first time you know from then on

    im actually working on a wild strain i found a few years back out in the field.. Ive got a pint jar just about fully colonized, but i might take a piece of grain to agar and clean it up, because it looks like theres some bact. contams popn up in spme spots... I successfully grew this wild strain im talking about on PF cakes. There weren't alot of fruits, but the ones that did mature were beauties.. i took some prints, and thats what im working with now.. I hope i can eventually tame this wild horsie, and name it.. lol

    Yea, it is pretty much impossible to bring anything in from the wild without having some bacteria tag along.

    Sometimes it very difficult to clean up and others very easy.

    Keep us posted, I love wild strains! :)
