Mushroom I.D. Please

A few months ago I bought a mushroom kit with burma cube spores and when the mycelium was just about ready to grow i went and planted the mushroom cake in my backyard. I walk out today to find a crap load of mushrooms growing all around the area where i had planted it...

So my question to yall is this the burma cubenesis I planted a while ago? or what kind is it?
The spore print is definetely blueish purpleish...

Hiya, I've just done a quick google for an i.d. on 'burma cubensis' and although its hard to see from the two photos, I don't think those are your burma cubensis. The stem looks too thin, the wrong colour, and i think there should be a ring on it too. I'd give them a miss, if I were you.

I'd look at Psathyrella, Paneolus or maybe Stropharia for those.

They could either be realy delicious edibles or a deadly poisonous species

It's hard to tell

Op, if you never post again we can assume the latter
