Fucken oath its raining and its hailing down like a motherfucker aswel, that should give the under growth some moisture because the hail stone's will get past any tree foliage and get to the ground and give all those spores out there some well needed moisture hoo ray

hehe glorious rain! and thunder too! the prediction for this weekend is for alot of rain so that should be good. i've actually got some amanitas growing on a neighbours lawn and they looked all dried up, so probably alot of mushrooms will need some good rain.

when is the best time to hunt? the day after a good rain, or does it take a few days for the rain to work its magic?

one more question, for the wood-lovers (subaeruginosa and variations), do they usually grow out in the forest off dead wood and so forth, or in areas that have been designed by humans?. or both?
thanks guys.. good luck with your hunting

Everyone is finding Subaeruginosa and allies - has anyone found Semilanceata in Melbourne? I know its here from a number of reports in mycology books - maybe because it grows in cow pastures and does not stain blue??

Hey Bluemeanie, was up mate.
Just now reading your post you say that all the shrooms that have been found in and around Melbourne are mainly Ps. Sabaeruginosa, But then you ask if anyone has found any Semilanceata.
Could you please point me in the right direction as to were i can see a picture of a Semilanceata and get a discription and details and all that sort of thing, Presuming you might know were i can .
The reason i ask this question is because iv never seen one, and there is heaps of fucking shroom hunting ground were i live and heaps of cow pasture's and iv only ever gone hunting for blue meanies (you) or gold tops, and thats all i have ever focased on up untill lately, Now that im older these new species iv seen are makeing me very curious about psyco active shrooms because their poping up all over the place and because when i pick shrooms if they dont go blue i dont touch em, i would hate to be throwing away shrooms that were ok to consume, iv probly already thrown heaps away not knowing it
So if you or any one else can help i would realy appresheate it

Hey guys, another Melbournian here!

Just found this page from a drug discussion board called bluelight. Here's the link if u wanna check it out:

http://www.bluelight.nu/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=forum&f=35

Anyways, I munched a few shrooms for the first time when I was in the states over summer, and since i've got back I've been on a couple of mushie missions, and so far I haven't had much luck. We did find a shitload of mushies one day that had characteristics of magic mushies, but the buzz only lasted for about 20 mins, and that was after eating 8 of th little buggers.

Are there many varieties of magic mushies in Melbourne? If so, where can I go to on the net to find pictures of them? And also, are mushies found all over Melbourne (well, within a 30km radius anyway) or do they grow only in particular areas, say outer eastern, inner eastern, etc??

Any info would be greatly apprectiated!

Depends which group you believe - according to Chang and Mills as well as Buchanan we have Psilocybe Subaeruginosa in three different variations
According to Stamets, Gartz, Guzman and co, we have Ps.Subaeruginosa, Ps.Australiana and Eucalypta/Ps.Tasmaniana
as well as Ps.Semilanceata, a few active gymnopilus species and a few unknowns.

Well it's saturday and it's been pissing down with rain for the last 3 days and its still raining a little bit still fuck it and so hear is the weekend and it's shroom hunting time ,And i think ill take the dogs with me, im sure there will bee plenty of rabbits for them after this rain he he he he , I must admit and by saying this it might help a few people were to look, there is one catch tho. When looking for wiled magic mushrooms, check the suroundings, Thing's like wet moist ground, lots of native trees all around and shrubs and under growth.
You just have to know what is native to the area, Thats the catch, once you know this the you will learn what sort of enviroment is sutible for shrooms to gro.
Happy huntimg this weekend melbourn'eens I hope to hear about some ubut finds.
