Temperatures are roughly 69F-85F for the last week or so. Flooding rains a few times a week for several weeks. These are growing on top of an old sheet of OSB covered in oak detritus. The only thing I can think they could be from me dumping things are Semperviva, but I don’t believe they are. The caramel nature of the stems and caps make any potential bruising very difficult to see. I’m pretty sure this is just a native wood lover I’ve never noticed before.

Did you get a good workup on these JR? Prints? Gill shots?

That's pretty cool whether they're active or not!


But I wouldn't eat them if they are psilocybes since I'd be too concerned about the bio-accumulation of potentially toxic substances from the OSB as it contains a lot of adhesive resin (same goes for plywood and particle board). There are a few different types of resins used in making those products and I wouldn't want any of them or their byproducts from decomposition in my mushrooms!
