Psilocybe cubensis


Movement: P. cubensis is sessile, but moves via help from other organisms such as cattle, cattle egret, and the Crested Caracara.

The spores of it move by wind or a carrier. The spores may be blown to other part of the field and can germinate at that desired location. Other transportation such as movement by other species happens when a bird or other organism moves the feces that P. cubensis grows on. Another way, they can move is if an organism or if people walk through a field that is germinated with the spores and people can carry them to fields that do not even have P. cubensis.
