Amanita in NB
    #2944158 - 07/30/04 12:18 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I found an Amanita in New Brunswick while on my road trip, growing on wood chips under a conifer. It is pale yellow-orange to white on the top with solid white flakes, white spore print and is about 4 inches tall. Cap is as wide as it is tall, veil still attached. There has been little rain lately but high humidity and temperatures.

What are the main characteristics of an Amanita Muscaria as opposed to the other (deadly) amanitas? With a description I should be able to tell the difference.

Also, with a spore print, can one cultivate Amanita if they so choose?

The identifying characteristics of A. Muscaria are easy to find with a little research. Details are important so look carefully. A photo of cap, stem, and gills would be helpful.

As far as cultivating them, it may be possible, but would be extremely difficult. Amanitas form symbiotic relationships with certain species of trees, and need these trees to fruit. The one you found may have poked its head up through wood chips but the mycelium from which it sprouted forms thick sleeves around the tree roots, helping the roots absorb water and nutrients, while receiving sugars from the tree.

As far as I know, cultivating A. muscaria would entail cultivating a host tree.

A couple keys to the Amanitas around here, might be useful.
