Too much Water?
    #1658923 - 06/24/03 06:01 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

After the recent HEAVY rain here in Fl, I took a trip to the local field. Unfortunately the field was slightly underwater, but some spots of high ground were perfect. Once into the field I immediately noticed some very nice P. Cubes growing and began to pick. Some of the mushrooms I picked had semi-transparent spots, i suspect from being in an area of flooding  (or possibly bluing?). The shrooms were mostly average size, three were especially large, they had no foul odor, and no visible signs of any mold. Also, I did take a spore print of these shrooms and they are definately P. Cubensis.
Being a somewhat inexperienced shroomer, I want to get some others opinions as to what this is and what causes it just to be safe. First, has anyone else seen this? Is it normal? Also, if it is excess water, does it affect potency?
Just for those wondering I came out with about 110 grams of fresh mushrooms, well worth the soggy socks.  :smile:

Hey your situation sounds very similar to mine. After heavy rain for the last two weeks in so-florida, shrooms are everywhere. After a hearty picking of copelandias, me and a bunch of friends took between 40-50 grams wet. Guess what? No one tripped. Basically there's so much rain that the shrooms are getting waterlogged. I had around 105 grams wet and it dried to 5.5grams so go figure. I would highly recommend to Florida shroomers to dry them out first simply because of innacurate dosing, with the abundance of water in shrooms.

Well I know have around 14g dried of mostly copes' but some cubies as well. Happy Season.
