I live in an area where cubes dont grow but I've been throwing all my spent substrate, for the last few months, in the same little spot in my backyard ... not expecting anything but what could it hurt ?
To my surprise when I looked out my back window today I saw about 15 had popped up out of the ground around where I threw the sub
I picked the biggest one and pinched the stem to see the bruising then I threw it back out with the rest
I'm not gonna eat them just in case ... but I thought it was really cool that they started growing like that .... I'm just gonna let them go and shoot their spores and see what happens

I would clone one, it might have naturalized to your area, I would then do PF cakes, or a gourmet block (coir + bran), and then bury it outside when colonized.

 

Cubensis is much more adaptive than people think.

Yea it's hard to believe as much trouble people have growing them that i can throw a spent out in the dirt and they pop up everywhere... part of me wants to let them go and spread their spores
Another part of me wants to pick them and use them but what if their not cubes? I'd go through all the effort to clone a toadstool lol

Look very cubensis to me. No different than collecting from a cow pasture.

As far as them growing, with the substrate you tossed out there, the living organism was already established.

Mycelium is pretty resilient if it gets moisture it may produce till cold weather hits. Not likely to come back from heavy freezing temps.

Graveyards are pretty common.

Weve had ideal weather here , just got lucky fr, its rained almost everyday for 2 months , but the sun comes out just long enouph to keep the ground from getting too wet ... and the temp has stayed between 75 and 85

Yea it surprises me sometimes the resilience of them ... it seems my best grows always happen when I dont expect much... I'm always forgetting things , being clumsy , and thinking to myself "this is never gonna work" but they always pop up... I must live in a low mold and bacteria environment or something because im surprised everytime when they start popping lol

Bless!

 

Me aswell, I had some really contaminated substraight and some jars that were not so contaminated and thrown all in same hole outside. Woke up yesterday to pins! It is like 95 F and super dry here so I have had to mist them but crossing fingers they get as big as yours.

 

Happy for you to receive this special surprise!

I think I'm just gonna let them stay and drop their spores .... like jkdeth said they probably wont survive winter ... but it be cool if they did ... yea I'd keep nursing , I dont know anything about outdoor growing but it seems once they pop up your good as long as they dont dry... the weird thing is it seems like i had nothing yesterday... now they're full grown open wide

The fresh air out doors makes contamination much less likely... those are cubes if that’s ur graveyard there based on the look... I don’t think they have naturalized to the area tho considering it sounds like u put the spent subs out there recently

I've been throwing my subs there for about 6 months ... I might be wrong but it seems like its been at least 2 weeks since I threw the last out ... I just threw a new one out today though it wasn't entirely spent but it wasn't really producing anything but blobs ... I threw it in a koolaid container a couple months ago it was damn near five inches thick and the lid was solid white
I babied it for a couple months but just got blobs so I threw it on out today on top of where the other ones are popping

I've seriously kept those meaty mofo's for myself!

Id chow down, no doubt on a blue ringer lol
Nature's finest would possibly be strong resistance strain spores too

If you are haunted by the thought of it then it may be best for you to let someone else enjoy the fruit that does not have any concern.
Perfectly good response with what could ruin it for you!

Haha I can understand that.

 

I treat spiders, snakes, wild mushrooms, and cops all the same.

 

I know some are good, and some are dangerous, but I'm not smart enough to know which ones are which, so I just let them be.

I meant more naturalized to the local environment more than the media. That being said Cubensis do grow on 'enriched' soils.

You need lots of oxygen to trigger anti-oxidant production, in addition even gourmet fruits are richer outdoors.

 

It's unlikely you will beat the richness of outdoor fruits, indoors, unless you have an extreme setup.

People grow active wood-lovers, by burying colonized cakes-blocks (enriched).

Indoor (medium oxygen, limited light) vs outdoor, Golden oyster.

Also note, coco coir is not much different in composition to wood, cellulose-lignin (cellulose, hemicellulose, phenols-other).

 

"Coco’s woody, structural tissues consist of roughly two-thirds carbohydrates and one-third lignin.

The carbohydrates are the complex polysaccharides cellulose and hemicellulose."

Psilocybe Cubensis Burma

 

Here I produced a selective isolate, which was germinated on WL-Tek, plus a sugar peg (cut down toothpick).

Once the peg was colonized, it was transferred to T-Gel + sucrose + MG, then to T-Gel plain.

 

T-Gel plain, contains no sugar, starch or cellulose (mostly all phenols-other).

The end result was adapted Burma, with white-rot ability.

 

https://mycotopia.ne...-3#entry1404587

 

----

 

Since phenols-other (and other materials), decay to oxygen, the mycelium must facilitate higher amounts of oxygen for enzymes and reactants.

Active materials are a primitive antioxidant, which defends the mycelium from oxidative damage, and allows for more oxygen.

 

Fruit bodies will normally be growing into air, and usually mycelium prefer to stay just under the surface.

I have noticed when mixing spawn, that the surface growth bruises the most.
