  1. Very nice, here in the Netherlands they grow on dung from wild horses. Posted 6 months ago
    1. Thank you Paul. You know that first when I read your come t about wild horses I thought you were being funny but then I remembered the Konik ponies. Obviously the fungi would also not say no to growing on any other horse dung they find in Holland? Posted 6 months ago
