Spore print question.
    #4686452 - 09/20/05 04:55 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I found a small patch of mushrooms growing in my back yard and decided to pick one to make a spore print. The mushroom has white gills, white stalk about 1.5 inches long, bell shaped cap that starts tan and fades almost to white as it goes down to the bottom. I am very new to mushroom hunting and so correct me if im wrong, but white gills usually indicate white spores, which most likely isn't an active mushroom? I'm going to do a spore print and I will post the results.

- If a mushroom has white or green gills (the underside of the mushroom) BEWARE! If they are white it may be deadly and if they are green it will make you very ill!

Sorry for not doing all the proper research.

if you want to find out what your mushroom is you will need to describe it better...i`ll post this before someone else does


Accurate mushroom descriptions

It is critical that you describe mushrooms fully and accurately in order to get a proper identification.

A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable, but not required.
Along with the pictures YOU ARE REQUIRED to provide the following data:

* Habitat (where [woods, pasture, state,province,country, altitude] and what [soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?)] does it grow on)
* Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
* Characteristics of the stem (length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
* Characteristics of the cap (diameter,color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
* Spore print color (very important!)
* Color that the mushroom bruises
* Scent of the mushroom
* Anything else you might find important


cheers

I wasn't looking for an identification, I was just asking if white gills meant inactive mushroom (in most cases).

<<...but white gills usually indicate white spores, which most likely isn't an active mushroom?>>

But yeah I tossed the mushroom anyways because the spore print revealed white spores, but thanks for the help anyways.

amanita muscaria has white-ish spores, its a very active mushroom, but probably not in the way you would want

I've tried amanita's once, it seems like a very tricky mushroom. I consumed 7 grams and I didn't feel anything from it. Thanks for the information though.
