general hunting questions...
    #693129 - 06/21/02 08:43 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

Hi people of the shroom! It's my first post here - I just have to say what an unbelievable site and forum! Amazing collection of like-minded mushy-heads breathing life into this board

Anyway, onto the point of the post - I have had quite a few shroom experiences but am just starting to get into the hunting side of things... Me and my bro have been on many hunts around Melbourne in Oz, finding the classic ps. subaeruginosa on every hunt!

I know how to ID them from posts here, and having the same type of blue staining mushy for the last few years, but I would like to know a few general questions about shroom hunting and drying, so here goes:

- how long does it take for shrooms to pop up after a decent rainfall?

- how long does subaeruginosa survive if there isn't any rain for a while?

- do you wash shrooms before drying them?

- how dark/black/brown should the subaeruginosas go after drying in-between newspapers for a few days


The last questions about drying I asked because we picked about 150 medium sized subaeruginosas last weekend and dried them out this last week (with a fan, occassionally, or just sitting inbetween newspaper while the ducted heating is on) and now the mushrooms have gone very dark coloured - and I read in a previous post that someone had extreme tummy upset with some little shrivelled black shrooms...

Dude, I am a fellow shroomer from Melbourne.

May want to read about drying them properly in this article.


I found "Dampsorb" at Bunnings as a Calcium Chloride product! It works well just put heaps of Dampsorb down!
