    #3285659 - 10/27/04 07:21 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

really theres no bruising so im kinda doubtful but these might be gyms i guess. found in red wood chips, gills are orange and attach straight to the cap, spores are rusty orange, top of the caps are smooth to the touch, very strong odor... let me know what else you need?

They don't look like gyms to me phishhead. It may just be the photos but those don't look orange at all. They are also missing a veil remnant.

Yes, gyms will bruise a blue-green(mostly green) color after several hours.

I talked to phishhead on AIM and it seems like he's got some species of Gym... Not sure which one. We'll figure it out when he gets home from work. Spore print is going to determine the ID on these. The smell (smells like chemicals of some sort) is right on with the species that I found. Mine had a very potent chemical smell to them.

Phish: I forgot to ask you, if you taste a little piece and spit it out, is it bitter as hell?

SO can anyone tell me what the experience is like with a GYM compared to a Psilocybe?

well I've been lucky to have a wonderful gym season this year collecting  pounds of active specimens. All staining blue even large caps with blue rain drops all over it, which I thought was very weird.(Many guides mentioned they didn't stain.) When I first started experimenting with them I couldn't get away from the trip it was so wonderful. Compared to cubies ( the only other shroom I have tried ) They are to me extremely different. Colorful happy not trippy at all.I get strong feelings of nostalgia and urges too play with toys watching cartoons just feeling so silly like if i was a kid! I really don't understand the potency with gyms. there's been times where i ate about 40 grams wet and had a insane time. while other times I ate over 200 grams wet and tripped for 8 hours  but with the same intensity of the 40 grams.  But with out thinking about it I pretty much over did it this month with tripping. I get sick just thinking of the idea of trying to trip again. I tried trippin on 6 hits of acid the over day.... was tripping like crazy but i just didnt see fun in it any more  :frown: I've actually been thinking of trying something along the lines of DMT But till now I think im going to take a brake
