Mushrooms Lifespan?
    #585539 - 03/21/02 07:34 PM (16 years, 3 months ago)

My friend lives on a cattle ranch and we are both new to hunting shrooms. He gets home from school at 5 and goes out into his field and finds tons of shrooms...but they are all dead and shriveled up and unidentifiable . Is it the sunlight? Would he heave more luck at daybreak or night?? please respond


Want a sig? e-mail me I will be happy to make one for you. :-)

If I understood right they grew and died in 24 hours. That's typical for coprinus species (not active). Psilocybe and paneolus live a little longer.
Keep looking and send some pictures next time...

I answered this post a day ago and it disappeared.

Mushrooms grow in both day and night.

It desn't matter. If you go at seven am to pick then noone but you will find them. However at five in the evening a lawn could have some more growing.

Some times shrooms will stay up for two to three weeks in the grund if the weather conditions are right.
At my site under cultivation at:

http://mjshromer.yage.net/species.html you can click ont he cultivation and see a owpie which produce Copelandia tropicalis mushrooms for 21 gdays. I photographed the fresh manure every three days until the 21st day when only a few Copes were still in the manure.


If they are shriveled up from drying in the sun then the spawn has run it course and you have to wait until the next crop comes up in 6 weeks or more later in new decomposed manure heaps.

Do not pick shriveled mushrooms. Only healthy ones.
