NZ ID and question about size
    #21671395 - 05/12/15 08:51 PM (5 years, 9 months ago)

Habitat:
Southern side of council garden. Wood chips etc

Gills:
Light brown

Stem:
White with blue staining

Cap:
Small, caramel

Spore print color:
None. Quite small

Bruising:
Looks like blue

As you can see it's a bit of a clump, with 3 or 4 small ones and a couple of pins.
My question is would picking the larger ones make it harder for the pins to survive? It's quite an exposed area and I almost stepped on them.
Also are they ok to pick as soon as the cap opens or should we ideally be waiting a bit longer after that?

Im betting subs, mayyybeee cyans.

They are most potent as the veil or righr before the veil breaks. Those would be fine to pick. If youre really worried about the tiny pins cut the mushrooms that you want right above the base that way the mycellium network will go undisturbed.

P. subaeruginosa


Picking the larger ones might stall them if it's dry and windy, but otherwise shouldn't if they're getting some moisture. Be gentle if removing the larger ones. Best practice is to pick mushrooms once they open and have released some spores.

:whathesaid: Also you're best to use scissors to collect small, delicate clusters of mushrooms like these, it prevents mycelium damage from pulling the mushrooms out of the ground.
