Amanita Muscaria - Virginia
    #4487118 - 08/02/05 11:23 PM (12 years, 19 days ago)

I've used Amanita Muscaria before whilst on vacation, and enjoyed the experience. Do they grow in Virginia? Just today I was hiking in Shenandoah National Park and saw something that looked like a smaller version of them, but upon closer inspection they were just red mushrooms with bites on the caps, which exposed the white stuff inside.

Sounds like Russula species, possibly poisonous.
Amanita muscaria should grow in Virginia, but i dont think the bright red version does. I dont know for sure, though.

You will find A. Muscaria var. Formosa in Va. This variety is yellow to orange with all the same characteristics. The most telling characteristic, I think, is the presence of rings at the base.

Is the formorsa variety as potent?

In small doses, the formosa warmed my body up. When I drifted off it would suddenly rush in and clear my mind- a pretty neat feeling. I did one higher dose (probably 4-6 gramsish) and my thoughts got funny, I fell asleep and woke up cold as hell, sweating like crazy, drooling like a pavlov dog, with very blurry vision. A little scary. I think that these symptoms are from leftover muscarine, which shouldn't have been present in much quantity since I dried them at 180 degrees, powdered them, and steeped the powder in hot water. Oh well. I'll try it again sometime.

These guys were found in the VA 'burbs in my friends lawn. See quite a few of them starting around the end of September. I find them growing around evergreens.

From what ntcomyco said, these seem as strong as others. I think I can go to one of those christmas tree farms to look. They should grow well under the fir/spruce/pine trees.
