I coped this from FAQ

Take a clean material you want to print on (fresh typing paper, index cards, wax paper, tin foil, glass slides....), cut a mature cap off the stem as near to the gills as possible with a clean scalpel or knife and place the cap on the printing material gills down. Cover the cap with a jar. Let sit for about 12 hours. Pick up the cap, fold the print an tape the edges or leave it as is and put into a plastic baggie. Label and store in a dark, cold and dry place.

No, spore prints will never be blue. Spore prints are just used to help you identify mushrooms better.
As a gerneral rule, if you get a white or orange/brown rusty sporeprint from a mushroom you found, stay the fuck away from it, it could be deadly.
You are looking for mushrooms with purple-brown colored spore prints(Psilocybes). Also mushrooms with jet black spore prints(Panaeolus).

Here is a picture of some spore prints that I took of some Pan. subbalteatus:

ok so as of right now i know there are 3 types:

poinsonous, edible but doesnt do anything, and edible and you trip.


is this correct? brown - orange or clear- stay away- they are poisonous

brown purple or black, eat them they are trips

and the ones that dont do anything?

thank you for bearing with me very much

the color of the spore print doesnt make a certain mushroom ok to eat...

spore prints only help identify the mushroom, doesnt identify it for you...

Yeah, what OJ said. Spore print doesn't identify it for you. It helps in identification. Sounds like you may want to do a little more reading before even considering eating mushrooms... Check out the grow/find section here at the shroomery. You may want to check out some books on mushrooms idenfication from the library, the Autobahn books have good tips for IDing mushrooms.

Peace out,
