Is this an oyster or a poisonous lookalike?
    #2643063 - 05/05/04 10:08 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hi,

This is my first mushroom find! I'm wondering if it's safe to eat.

a. Habitat: Tampa, FL (west side of panhandle, middle of state)
b. Characteristics of the gills: white, in rows (not circular)
c. Measurements of cap and stem: no stem really, see pics
d. Characteristics of the stem: attached to cap
e. Characteristics of the cap: slightly rubbery/skin like
f. Spore print color (very important!): white probably, but i didn't take a print
g. Color that the mushroom bruises: brownish i think
h. Scent of mushroom: very mushroomy, not sure how else to describe

Is there any way I can clone it or grow it according to the teks?

I'm linking these because they're huge (about 1mb each), so dialups beware.
oyster 1
oyster 2

Thanks!

Looks like P. ostreatus to me.

For cloning and growing instructions, a good place to start is

I agree. Those look like oysters.

The only additional thing you could do for verification would be to make a spore print. It should come out white or pale lilac in color.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks everyone, I'm not sure if we'll eat these, but it's cool to know I found something edible  :cool:
