spore print for just picked shrooms
    #2694684 - 05/18/04 03:37 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hey everyone...

Just went shrooming for the first time... we came back with quite a few different types.  One question: I keep reading everywhere to make a spore print to help identify the type; I've even gotten so far as to press the caps down on a white piece of paper, cover them with a jar (wait 20 minutes)... but how do you "read" a spore print?  Everywhere I've looked has said either how to make a print, or about jet black print, but what should I look for after the print is made?  If I missed a key thread somewhere, could someone redirect me or tell me what my paper will look like if they do have psycilobin?  By the way, HEY EVERYONE I'M NEW!  23/F/ALABAMA first time grower, harvester  :grin:  Thanks for any help anyone can give!

XOXO,
Alison

remove the cap from the stem. Place the cap head up on a white sheet of paper or smooth aluminum foil. Place a glass over it so the spores don't blow away. Wait at least an hour, preferably overnite.

In your area, you may find psilocybe cubensis-purple to purple-black sporeprint. That's where I'm from. I shroomed up there for over 10 years and that's the only kind I found up there...of course that's the only kind I knew about at the time though. :shrug:

good luck!

Cubensis prints are more of a purple-brown color, not black.

or lavender

if you take one overnite, it may come out jet-black. I seem to remember taking a sporeprint once.

j/k! :grin:
