    I use to pick them on my friends property, he has cows. They would show up after a good rain and usually picked them in the morn. Some farmers use a special feed that keeps them from growing. This keeps people from tresspassing on thier fields for shrooms

    From what Ive seen, yes, it grows on shit. But usually its just growing out of the ground. Probably where some shit was before the rain. And when I find em, I pick, then I thump the shroom to knock off the spores onto some more shit to grow more shrooms, it doesnt always work though. Not sure about the best time of year for them, its been almost 10 years since I ate a shroom.

    So I know there are hundreds of varities of psilicyben shrooms and thousands of varities of other mushrooms. It is dangerous to pick random mushrooms and eat them.. but if they are growing on cow shit is it always psilicyben?

    Rule of thumb in survival situations: Never eat mushrooms, nearly 80% of all mushrooms are poisonous and mushrooms have little to no nutritional value.

    Sounds smart huh? I learned that watching Bear on Man Vs Wild

    If you don't know the conditions to find them in, and how they grow, I'd do a bit more research before hunting. Mushrooms are very dangerous to mess with unless you're precisely sure what you're picking. Typically, once poisonous mushrooms show symptoms in your body, it's too late.

    That being said, they like humid conditions and take a few days to mature. Pick a week in the 70's where it rains every other day or so, then get your shoes dirty!

    Bear is wrong, about 80 percent of all mushrooms just aren't etable at all - poison or not. There are not that many truely poisonous mushrooms in the world and there are plenty of ones with a great deal of nutrition, protein and all sorts of other very helpful things. That doesn't change the fact that the poisionous ones are out there and your are playing a dangerous game. There are all sorts of cutlures that forage for all sorts of wonderful tasty mushrooms in the world and once one gains true knowlege of a mushroom species he can be assured he will not kill himself, then he moves on to another species.


    BTW the agaricus bisporus campestrious or button mushroom you cut up in your salad or cook up for mushroom gravey is carcinogenic - think on that for a while (yes, even if you cook them)

    florida people, you are late on this but the season starts in spring and ends usually around sep-nov for us, pick the Cubes(cubensis) they have a gold cap and purple ring on the stem like a little skirt dont waste your time on liberty caps, as thy get really mushy and dry up to NOTHING, cut them, dont pluck them, you want to eat cow shit ;) tap the mushrooms cap as well for some spores to eb dropped, so you keep the fields flooded with them, they grow usually where cows rest, like under shrubs and trees its rare to find some on the field bc they usually dry up, also use paper bags, plastic bags are terrible IMO
