Some general info on p.semilanceata [Re: DrunkenAttempt]
    #4415828 - 07/17/05 07:01 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

P.semilanceata(Liberty Cap)


These are my favorite shrooms that grow here, they are the most commen and also the most potent.They fruit mainly in the fall but every now and then they will pop up in the summer if there is rapid days of rain.I`ve been picking these for two years now and find the best places to look for them are in sports fields, grave yards, nice lawns, golf courses, parks ect...i suggest flicking the caps before you pull the mushroom out of the ground, this will knock some spores onto the ground and will help them grow better in the future.

There are a couple look-alikes so be sure to know what you're looking for and use a spore print.

Some general info on the Amanita muscaria var formosa (Yellow-Orange Fly Agaric) [Re: DrunkenAttempt]
    #4415957 - 07/17/05 07:35 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)



Ah the amanita...i recommend you do not try this one unless you are sure you have a strong enough mind to do it, for it is quite powerful.

People either love them or hate them..i LOVE them.

The active ingredients are ibotenic acid and muscimol, not psilocybin like most magic mushrooms.

In Nova Scotia these grow plenty...the best time to pick them is late July until September.They grow in the woods with birch,fir, and pine
trees.They never stray too far from their host-tree.

Squirls feed on them so if you can find places with a lot of squirls you are bound too find some amanitas.

BE 100% IN THE IDENTIFICATION...there are two very poisoness amanitas here aswell(Destroying Angel, Death Cap)


More on these later.

Beware. Do not look just for the spots and color. The red variety can look orange/yellow due to rain and that will also cause its spots (which are a part of the veil) to disappear. Aminita Muscaria are generally easy to identify IF you are experienced. I find them every single year. I have found a 16" cap before. They are very large and easy to spot. The destroying angel is generally much smaller (largest cap I have seen is 5" in diameter) and usually ALL white, or has a small amount of color in the center of the cap. Be careful... I dont want to hear about people dieing from misinformation they got on the internet.

Also besides just the cap, veil, looks, etc.. another important thing is to examine the base of the stem very closely. Dig it up out of the ground if needed when picking. The concentric rings at the base of the stem is an important feature to use in combination with the others in the identification.

Haha, I found this in my recent threads. It's funny to see one of my 6 year old replies pop up randomly.
