Mushroom hunting in alabama
    #4426679 - 07/20/05 03:47 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I've recently found a place to find mushrooms but the only probably is i don't know when the best time to pick? I went out yesterday night after a blazing hot day and i went around 4 in the morning but nothing. I've found some before and i was shocked because caps were as big as 2 to 3 inches in diameter with small stems. I can't figure out when is the best time, after a rain storm, or when its really humid? Also what time of the day is best?

Try after a pretty decent rainfall and the following few days.

I've had some luck when it's been very humid and foggy for several days in a row, but 12-36 hours after heavy rainfall is your best bet.  Most of my finds are in the early morning but that's just because it's when I find it the safest to be trespassing. :wink:

Oh so after rain storms is the best time. Well a buddy of mine said after a hot sunny day theres more humidity in the air so more likely to sprout, true or false? But have you seen any to where they grow huge caps and such small stems? Are they pretty simple to spot?
