When i was younger i used to collect spores in spray bottles.
I would then mix with sterile water.
I then would go the every spot with cows and horses and spray the holy water everyywhere i knew they would be grazzing.
Made for some amazing months ahead.

I even went to the trouble of spore printing carrots and making friends with some of the horses and feeding them directly to them.
I have to say horse poo makes some strong caps.

What i wonder is how many people benefitted from my work?

I was buying prints just to set them free again lol

I would love to build a "street team" of sporers.
Start releasing exotics again lol

I TRIED that back in 80's zero luck .i knew they woulldn't survive the winter but thought there might  be some field mushroom's in late summer or fall but nothing , got a  lot good exercise .\

 

long ago  Paul Stamets and the merry pranksters would takke road trip along coast  once a year from Seatle to SANFRAN and back with super soakers full of spore water . for  cyans and azures and stop every few miiles annd spray all the mulch along road side parks ect

he seems way  to perinoid for that sorta fun now .

It takes months once spores are eatten to start growing, ive watched a patty take almost 6 months befor anythi g grew..
Being homeless at a young age.. i lived on a cow feilds for an easy income lmaoo.. was able to get my own place fast lol
Needed more and more and didnt want to pick the spot dry of spores. So i figured take the biggest strongest caps and shake them up in a spray bottle prettymuch made purple water.

After 3-6 months somtimes almost a year, damnn did that feild blow up.

Then again i would spray everything, including putting caps in their water barrels and so on. Veryy throughly covered the feilds as i was picking

I mean if its just water most cops cant street test for whats it in.

As for your luck, i found rain water or somthing similar is best for it, also have to find what will work for your area.

Even if they could, spores are legal in 47 states anyway.

I used to do that with bag seed from weed back in high school, but it was also only 20 bucks an ounce back then!
