Amanitas
    #357938 - 07/20/01 07:13 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

Hi - a few month back when the snow was just finished melting, i noticed 2 white bulbs in close proximity under my pine tree (growing mostly in the dirt i guess). I just now thought that it could have been an Amanita, but i also remember that there was no cap in sight, just a white stump..

Anyone know the growth process of Amanitas, and if these white, capless stumps could have been it? (Gardener came by that day, and i havnt seen them since)

All Amanitas in the young "button" stage are completely encased in a white, cottony "universal veil" which obscures the separation between cap and stem. As they expand they break through this veil, which remains as patches or warts on the cap and a cup or sac-like remnant around the basal bulb of the stem. So yeah, those objects could well have been Amanita buttons--no telling which species until they mature.

wow thats interesting... i bet my gardener just stepped on them too... damn! would have been a beautiful place for big red mushrooms (if thats what they were)... thanks woods

ps.. if they grew there once, quite possible that they'll be back?
