In Psilocybe liniformans the lamella edge is gelatinized, and you can pick it off with a needle.
Psilocybe liniformans is also only found on dung, as far as i know. I know it from old horse dung, in the Netherlands, from where it was described. It is not likely to grown in a flower pot in NZ, but you never know.
