Can lava rock affect color of mushies?
    #458608 - 11/14/01 10:59 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Today my boyfriend and I went mushroom hunting and found a bunch of little ones under some type of coniferous tree planted in dirt, wood chips and those reddish lava rocks. A lot were growing right out of the wood chips but a few were "connected" right to the lava rock. A couple were dark brown with wavyish caps but the stems were dark, not light. Can the coloring of the rock (it might be dyed rock?) seep into the mushie and change the color? I wish I had a good dig. camera so i could show you guys the shrooms but I only have a lousy one attached to my comp. Anyway thats my general question. Maybe I'll get them on here.

I would have to say that varied growing conditions/substrates can effect the color of mushrooms...I have seen it before. Just be careful and identify it in every other way properly before taking the plunge.


And that is all the news that's fit to print
