A Few Simple Questions
    #3082203 - 09/02/04 12:32 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hello, my name is Ed and I just signed up on this board. I have a few questions...

If I do my research online, is it possible for me to learn to identify edible magic mushrooms by myself or do I definitely need to have someone help me out and make sure I am picking the right mushrooms at first?

I was looking at the guide for which mushrooms grow in my area (FL) at http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23483 and I was wondering if those are definitely the only type of mushrooms I will find here, or if it is possible to find other types as well. Also, are the mushrooms on that list all edible or are there any that are poisonous?

Finally -- and I know this is a stupid question -- but how do you pronounce psilocybe? I've been under the impression that the "i" and "y" are pronounced as you would pronounce the letter "i" by itself, but I actually have no idea if that is right.

yes you can learn to id by yourself, but always be 100% sure of your id before consuming.

Those are what you need to look for.

They are all active, none poisonous
