Worth looking in a pretty Urban park in Georgia?
    #2650761 - 05/07/04 06:12 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I'm totally new to this, the only knowledge that i have is reading all of the mushroom hunting links on this site. Anyways, i am courious to see if you think that i could find any active mushrooms in a park that is located in Atlanta. There is a pond and many creeks in the park, but they are kinda nasty (dont know if this matters). There are places that "seem" as if they would be good habitat from all that i know...I think i will just have to look for myself, but do you guys think i could find some in a park located in the middle of Atlanta?
peace

Well, i was hoping to find these, Psilocybe weilii Psilocybe cubensis Psilocybe atlantis Ps. caerulescens and Ps. caerulipes...I dont think i could find the cubes and i have done minimal reading on the other...i just know what habitat they like from one of the mushroom hunting links, but i dont know what they like in the south east and that link gives info on habitat in the north west...what do you think is a probable find, if anything, for my area? oh since you live in ATL i live around the buckhead area if you are familiar with that just to give you a better idea of my surroundings.
thanks
peace

Do a search for the user Lizard King. The Weilii may be up by the next rain, then as it gets warmer they go dormant until fall. Of course nothing is written in stone good luck

Yeah i think im going to wake up at like 9 tomarrow and take a walk and see if i can find anything, if i dont find any then i will wait until the next rain. Wish me luck oh, and if i do find anything i will definatly need help with an ID, hopefully I can find something because i have never really tripped before, just Salvia which is fucking crazy and LSA which is alright but its hell eating those things, so i think it would be cool to find my first mushrooms. Well, wish me the best.
peace

Eh, it's been so damn hot and dry lately I doubt you'll come up with anything. Only mushrooms you'd really find in the park are weilii if you're lucky. P. atlantis and P. caerulescens/caerulipes are very rare.

weilli dont go dormant until fall...thats a crock......they are just hard to find in hot weather.....stick to the shady areas in the heat to find the weilli...they are out in the spring,but they are more abundant in the fall

Agreed... if we get a few good days of stright rain they'd probably pop up at any time in the summer. The heat is just so bad that all the patches in the grass(direct sunlight) get dried up.

Well, that is news to me, but it is good news. I guess it just is more of a fall mushroom then either a spring or summer fruiting one. According to Stamets they fruit between 45 degrees to 80 preferring 60 to 75 seems to me that would rule out most of the summer.

Well damn that sucks, but hey the weilli are pretty potent right? I didnt see anything this morning...so ill take a look when it rains next...hopefully i will find some...oh also in the fall i see alot of mushrooms with red caps and white dots on them, they look like the mushroom that i put by the thread name...are these active or could they just be a look a like of like 100 others? sorry i dont mean to sound so ignorant but i just dont know much at all about these...
thanks for everything
peace

Just to add my two cents... The red ones with the white dots are called amanita muscaria (the Fly Agric) these have psycadelic properties but do not contain psilocybin and psilocin but does contain muscrine(sp?). These mushies have been know to produce a great spritual experience but have ALSO bebn known to cause serious pain and sickness to its' ingestor. There are ways to prepare them so as no to get [as] sick but i have never tried them myself. As to weather or not to eat them ... either read up more about them or ask one of the mod's they are a foutain of knowledge.

Yeah they look like the amanita muscaria, but the caps are a darker red and also they are scaly...i think this is probably hopeless because i doubt i will ever find anything that im 100% sure wont kill me so id rather just buy because then i can be pretty sure im okay...ill give hunting a try anyway i guess
