My first post, first hunt and first find!
    #16339611 - 06/06/12 05:44 AM (9 years, 11 months ago)

Hello everyone, my first post of hopfully many to come!

I'm from Australia, a little town called Bendigo in the state of Victoria.

I've had shrooms twice and both times were very enjoyable, despite being small doses. Im keen for another session and i would enjoy it even more knowing i found them myself.

I've done some research in regards to what species are available in my area and I have read quite a few posts here as well as on some blogs and videos on youtube.

I went on my first hunt today and even though i had no luck initially, it gave me a chance to enjoy the beautiful morning and get some great photos.

After returning back to Bendigo with nothing, i decided to check a local area based on some hints a friend gave me about where he gets some. After spending 6 hours this morning in several different lush locations and not finding anything, i found some within 1 minute of looking in a very public area, and it was only a 10 minute drive from my house!

It was obvious right away that these were different to everything i had seen earlier today, they had characteristics that matched photos and descriptions i had read online.

I am currently doing a spore print, as the first one was not left for long enough and i cant tell what the color is properly.

Here is my description, it would be great if you could offer some advice!

Habitat:
Lots of leaf litter, sticks and grass. About 10 metres from a creek.

Gills:
Very light brown / tan, not attached (im assuming this means not attached to stem?).

Stem:
About 10cm long, 4-5mm diameter, white with slight gold tanning, smooth with a light vertical grain, solid, not spongy compared to everything else i found today, stem already had signs of blue color around the base.

Cap:
1-2cm, tan golden color, smooth with slight vertical lines, conical. Im assuming these are quite young specimens?

Spore print color:
In progress, will return with update!

Bruising:
Blue appearing on stem and on cap.

Other information:
Distinct earthy smell, nothing unusual or suspicious.

I've attached an image with a pen for scale. Its not the best photo, but i can take a better photo in the morning with my good camera. I just dont have a flash for it.

Any advice you can offer would be fantastic.
Thank you!

Well done mate! Gotta love finding that awesome caramel, especially after searching for so long. Just a hint for next time, use scissors instead of ripping them right out; this just helps the shrooms to grow more either later in the season or next season. :smile: Enjoy!

Thanks heaps for the answers and suggestions guys!

I will be taking scissors with me next time, it makes perfect sense.
I'm heading out again today, i'll do a proper search of the area from yesterday and try a few other suspect areas.

Spore print looks good, its a purple color, so everything is honky dory.

I'm going to look into cultivation methods by using the spore print. It would be a shame to waste them and have to wait till next season.

If anyone can point me in the direction of the best guide for home cultivation using spores, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks again!
