Different Questions about Semi's!
    #3250967 - 10/19/04 11:29 AM (12 years, 8 days ago)


After my former post was destroyed by an overworking admin  :wink: I post my questions again. And a sporeprint I would like you to look at and comment.

1. Why no scissors in Libcap picking? Pulling a family out of the soil isnt so good for the mycelium?

2. Please check this sporeprint I made and give comments. I 4got to take a picture of the shrooms who were very libcap alike...

3. How many years can a mycelium live? Is it like an apple tree? Taking all the fruits will not prevent the tree from generously fruiting next year. Does it work that way with LibCaps too?

4. Why are there more libcaps in cattle pastures then in areas without  grazing creatures?

5. Do cattle spread them maybe? If so, also by their poop?

6. Is it possible that the Little Friends dont like clay to grow in? Even though the pasture is with cows and wild grass etc..

7. LibCaps fruit in Autum, which influence do the other seasons have on them? Do hot summers with high temperatures affect them in a bad way for example?

I believe these were the questions I had! Ah and many more will come in the future... :P Afte rwhich I can answer them too! :smile:

Many thanks in advance to all the experts with wise answers! :laugh:

Have fun,


PS: Webmaster "Y" you must feel bad, ah everyone makes mistakes now & then!

There are no scissors in lib cap picking, something to do with it being a grass growing mushroom, and the fact that it oxidizes the chemicals in it somewhat alot. Mushroom John explains it in a recent post.

Your spore print is purple-brown, which the psilocybe's have.

Mycelium fruits for around 3 year.

The next three questions, well this is just due to the habitat these mushrooms like.

They have been found earlier than the normal time, but they like a cool climate and lots of rain.
