need id please
    #4065240 - 04/17/05 12:20 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I just picked up 1/4oz of shrooms from a friend of a friend, but I've never seen this species before. They were pretty cheap for the amount I got, which kind of sketches me out. The bag contains all caps, which are greyish to black in color. None of the caps are bigger than an inch and a half or two inches. Supposedly they are from Texas, not sure if they were handpicked or grown, but from the sound of it they were handpicked. Thanks.

heh, usually I'd say IDing dried mushrooms is futile, but those look VERY much like dried shiitakes :smirk:.  they're definitely not cubensis or any psilocybe, judging by the white gills.



i can say with a fair degree of certainty that your foaf is a punkass scammer and he ripped you off. cheap or not, I'd be pissed.  find someone honest/reliable to buy from or learn to pick or grow your own.

Yep, Shiitakes.

At least he didn't sell you poisonous mushrooms.

ugh, that's horrible. i dont know if i wouldve bought them if i had seen them first, my roommate called me and said he met someone who was selling them for $50 1/4, and i told him to pick them up for me. 50 for 1/4 is cheap around here, but it's still 50 bucks.

I can never find a reliable mushroom source around here. Usually its just pot dealers who occasionally find a few ounces of shrooms at a time. I'm from New England too, so there are very few species up here to pick in the wild.

if anyone else thinks it could be something else, let me know.

Why do rip offs never contain truffles...? That would be a nice rip. Sorry you got shafted man. I reccomend never buying from anyone but growers you know or picking your own- and you do have actives in New England- if I were you I'd not be home right now. I'd be looking... Save your money for pot.

yeah, it sucks. i ate them yesterday hoping that he may have put acid on them instead, but i wasnt that lucky. atleast i'll know what dried shiitakes look like so i won't get ripped off again.

I've looked for shrooms in this area a lot, the only ones that are really around here are laughing gyms, but they're hardly potent, and panaelous subbaltaeus, but they're rare. there are no reliable shroom dealers in this area either. whenever anyone grows them, or a dealer gets a few ounces, they're gone in no time. theres such a huge demand for them around here. I guess I've been able to find them enough though. I tripped for my first time at this time last year and just did it for my 8th time a couple of days ago. I'll probably try growing them in a few months.

yeah, for less than a hundred bucks
you can get everything youll need to
grow them yourself, for a lifetime

try the pf tek, follow it to the t

you might also find some interest in
hunting for edible and medicinal mushrooms,
since magical fungus doesnt really grow
where you live.

Here's what you should do.

Tell the dude you tripped balls.Then tell him when you were coming down you decided to make some killer hash.Then go scrape off some of the caked on grass from the underside of your lawnmower.Either that or tell him you want more because you tripped so hard and then when you see him,chainsaw him to death until he dies and when he's down you should kick him then say "Applesauce bitch"!!!11one.
