I was picking some stuntzii today at an apartment complex and this lady walked by and told my friend to "be careful", something about them fertilizing the lawn or the shrooms...so does anyone know if sometimes they use some weird fertilizer to try and poison shroom pickers or make them sick? I guess what I'm wondering is whether I should wash them or not. Also while we're on the topic, I'm also wondering if there is some kind of spray that they use to kill off the shrooms. A while ago I was looking down at some grass and this guy took notice and said that they sprayed the grass or whatever, but I still found a decent amount of shrooms growing....I did make some tea later though and had stomach discomfort, but sometimes that happens anyway. Someone please enlighten me.

Oh and here's a shitty scan for ya'll.
Edit by Gumby: sarcastic or not, we do NOT tolerate soliciting drugs for goods or vise versa. Very, very, big no no. Don't let it happen again.

Edit by typingwords: okay man, obviously it was a joke, I don't think even a hundred pounds of stuntzii would be worth a digital camera anyway. In case you didn't know, a joke can't hurt this website or anyone on here. The only way anyone could get into trouble is if a trade actually took place. But don't worry , it won't happen again sir!

everything everyone everywhere. forever and ever and ever.

There have been many incidents of poisoning where fertilizers or weed or pest control chemicals have been sprayed on a lawn and the contaminated mushrooms have been eaten. The chemicals are not sprayed to poison people (imagine the lawsuits). Mushrooms naturally concentrate many environmental toxins, which can result in normally edible mushrooms becoming poisonous.

Other places you should consider not collecting mushrooms for this reason are golf courses (they spray a lot to keep those fariways green like that) and areas near landfills or mine tailings. Areas near the sides of highways sometimes have concentrations of lead (from the days of lead in gasoline).

If you suspect they may have sprayed something, contact the manager of the apartments and ask them. If they ask, tell them you hunt edible mushrooms and want to make sure you don't get poisoned if you eat some from out of their lawn.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
