Reishi? I think so. (Updated with more pictures)
    #1706842 - 07/11/03 08:51 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I'm hoping someone can positively identify this mushroom as a reishi, and give me the okay on making some tea. I love the dryed and bottled reishi, so I am eager to try some wild reishi. These were found in Georgia, habitat as pictured....

In the ground...

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Nice find. It appears it could be
a Ganoderma lucidum. Was
it growing near or beneath
a hardwood tree?

Its a Ganoderma, but probably not a G. lucidum. Regardless of the species, it should still hold the same medical properties as the chinese reishi.

G. Lucidum this time i think.... [Re: Remy]
    #1709128 - 07/12/03 07:13 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I found these a couple of hours ago in my own backyard. The caps have a lot more red to them and they were growing from a dead tree, which leads me to believe these are indeed g. lucidum.

two stalked specimens...



more of a shelf...



older drying up....

Nice pics! Looks like G. Lucidum to me as well.
Thanks for sharing. Are you making tea from
the top two pics?

Peace to Everyone,

Yessir. Tea from the top two pictures. I would like to try my hand at growing these. Any idea how people obtain the mycelium syringes?

As far as I know, normally syringes contain a suspension of spores in water. For advice on cultivating you should probably start a thread in one of the Cultivation Forums.

Happy mushrooming!

One can also create a mycelium suspension in water and use it for inoculations.

You can buy a mycelium syringe at sporeworks.

Do a Google search on reishi.

The Chinese refer to this mushroom as the "Mushroom of Immortality", and ascribe all sorts of medicinal properties to it. It's usually used to make a tea.

Happy mushrooming!
