Looking for advice on picking in southern B.C.
    #3741020 - 02/06/05 04:26 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

It's comming on spring here in southern B.C. and I assume that means there will be wild mushrooms fruiting in my area. I was wondering if somebody here could inform me as to what websites to check out, where on the shroomery I could find some info, what kinds of shrooms to expect to find, and when exactly I should be looking for them. If anyone from southern b.c. wants to p.m. me or just post on here some tips that would be great too.

I did look around the shroomery a bit but it seems the hunting info here is more directed to american picking, but i might have missed something too.

yeah, you missed about everything I'd say.

everything you listed is in the FAQ, www.mushroomjohn.com is good for species specific info and pics.

spring is not the best time for hunting psilocybes around here, you'll have much better luck in the fall. lots of good edible mushroom picking to be done up there from spring until then though.

Thank you Gumby, I really should have read that previous to posting on this forum at all. DH I know your right about fall being the superior time to pick but I was informed of varieties fruiting in the spring.
Well I have enough info to read up on now but any other website links from shroomery members would be appreciated. As well if a veteran could post and maybe mention some of his experiances on when the best time to look was and the most abundant fruit he has found in this area, where to look that would be perfect. Otherwise though I think i'll be good with the links provided for now.

Try using the 'Search Posts' function. There are quite a few BC hunters who post here, Mitchnast has posted a lot of info about shrooms from up that way.

Hi Shroomy Dan,

Mitchnast is in Nova Scotia on the far norhteast end of the Continent and B.C. is above Seattle norht of Bellingham.
Anyway have a shroomy day

and good luck to you in B.C.

Blue ringers can be found in the spring in well manicured lawns with sprinkler systems at new condos and parks etc.

i believe the shrooms stop just shy of the border due to customs, you will have to travel to washington to find them

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
