quick question for those feeling generous
    #3931617 - 03/17/05 07:24 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i'm off on holiday tomorrow, and there's gonna be days i'm out and about in the fields and woods, wandering about temples etc. i've never taken wild prints before, or thought about planning for doing so. i'll have a mini daypack and that's about it.

in case i do find something interesting and want to make a quick wild print, what simple basic pocket utensils should i take? foil? paper? bags?

Hi Shirley, well one thing, it is not rainy season yet so hopefully you might catch a spring rain. For prcan make them overnight in your hotel room. The shrooms are a little hard to preserve on the road , but use a sicker teray or a plastic tray similar to the ones in my Copelandia cyanecens in Cambodia or Thailand or viet-Nam images. that keeps the shroosms fresh while picking themin hot weather. Buy regular paper for yur prints, 8 by 11 or whatever. Put ptints onone side of paper sop you can fold the paper. I collect the prints and then mail them to me o in the states. I take a stack of prints, just like a stack of playiong cards. Hold them straight, then pak a light laer of cardboard abound them completely and tight so the prints wont move. Then I scotch tape them. Put them in an enveloope and write Prints: Do Not bend.

Every year I send two or three boxes of them to myself from Thailand to the USaA.

I would never use aluminum foil for prints. I think thats a personal choice.

Also as I mentioned to you about Xiem, if you go to the jasmine hotel and tell them you are a friend of mine and would like to hire one of the motorcycle guides who helps me shroom. He knows where to go and what to look for. There are a few I use every year.

have a safe journey.

Hi Shirley,

A good way to protect your wild harvested shrooms is by carrying them in an empty Prigles can or similar container. Use small scissors to cut the dirt off the bottom of the stems before placing them in the container. They should keep just fine like that for up to six hours or so, and you can take prints when you get home. For larger mushrooms I use paper lunch sacks. As long as they don't get too smashed up or too hot you should be able to get prints hours later. Of course, be sure to separate your mushrooms by species as you collect them, one species per container.


If you must make prints in the field the following method will work OK.

Cover small squares of cardboard with aluminum foil and bring them with you along with extra aluminum foil. Place a mushroom cap face down on the ridged square and cover with a piece of foil to hold it in place. Leave a small gap on one side for air; you don't want the little guy to suffocate. If you want, you can number each square and photograph the mushroom with the square next to it. That way you will be sure which print goes with which shroom. Try to store it in a place where it will not get crushed.


I hope you have fun on your holiday. :smile:
We would love to see pictures of anything you find.

It depends what you want to do with the spore print.
Knife
Foil
Cup
Time
Is a good start.

Enjoy the world around you ...... Good Luck Hunting and Collecting. The future of shrooms depends on all of us.
