Drying mushrooms
    #1738435 - 07/22/03 04:05 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have only just started hunting for mushrooms, and don't really know much about them. I am trying to start a sort of catalog of the mushrooms growing around my area (Toronto) so that I can post pictures here for id when I get a digital camera.

I have 3 questions. First, what should I keep track of? Size, color, stem size?

I have taken some spore prints on printer paper. What do you look for when looking at prints, and what should I do to keep the prints from dissapearing?

Finally, if it does not turn blue after being cut, does that mean it is not hallucinogenic? That's really the only reason i'm collecting them.

Thanks

Right if they dont bruise blue there not going to make you trip. The main things you need to look for are bluebruising, and purple to black sporeprint. I take sporeprints on alumnium foil and simply fold another peice of foil on top of the print.

Check up and find out what grows in your area, then find out what terrain the mushrooms grow in (clay soil, woodchip mulch, cowshit pastures, etc). Also, check out as many different pictures of the species you're trying to locate, and then get out there and give it a shot. Once you manage to find active species, you'll be able to recognise them a bit better when you go hunting.
There's a really handy FAQ in the Hunting Forum that tells you what you need to make a positive ID. Perhaps go check that out, and then start making profiles of all the mushrooms you find.
