without a picture, it would be impossible to say for sure.

did you take a spore print?

did you take a picture?

did they bruise blue?

people who 'test' just a little bit of a mushroom that they are not sure about just worries me SO Much. so please do not do that Loren. many many of the mushrooms found in the wild are indeed poison to eat.

you have made some good observations with the description of the mushrooms you found. .,.,i hear this very often "they bruise purple". i have never found a mushroom that bruised purple. once i found some purple mushrooms, but nothing that bruised purple.

and once again: without a picture, it would be impossible to say for sure.

sorry buddy,
keep on lookin though,
and research this bulletin board.

Forgot to mention... the caps were generally about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter, the largest found about an inch.
The stems were generally 5 to 6 inches long and very slender, about 1/2 centimeter.

I took a spore print, yes. It is an inky, almost bluish black.

Unfortunately, no , I didn't take pictures of the fresh specimens. I should go back and take pictures, as there are doubtless many living mushrooms still there.

The blue bruising is strange. I have seen mushrooms stained with a rich indigo blue color. These did not do so clearly as that, but the caps in particular definitely seemed to turn a greyish green-blue color where handled. This color becomes very dark, almost black, at tears in the caps.

Now that they are dry they have taken on a wrinkled and golden, shiny appearance.

Thanks,
Loren

hello again Loren. there is a small chance that you might have found a copelandia species (magic). there is also a very Large chance that what you found will make you Sick (poison).

go to the field and look for cubes. learn the way of the cube first before even thinking about identifying and consuming the copelandia cyanescens (blue meanies). once you find them, they will most definately draw you back again to their field to find them again.

for me,.. nothing compares to the trip of a wild cubensis. One big cube usually does it for me. and they never fail to Creeep around my eyelids like maagic. ive tripped on homegrown shrooms many times and have never experienced that comfortable glow suddenly move over my body, as the wild ones do.

the only thing that you are going to eat from a cow pasture is the Psilocybe cubensis.



Now Go and Get them Shrooms!

Did they look like these? You can see the bruising in the small ones that were picked first. The others bruised up later. The caps showed much blueing as well.

Beware of bad look alikes especially small ones.

no Loren, don't even look at beesly's pictures. (hee hee no offense beesly :smile:)

you want to find Psilocybe cubensis. identifying copelandias that grow in florida is too wishy-washy of a descision to make for a shroomer who is only begining.

you only want the cubensis.

Thanks you guys... yeah, they do look like the blue meanies in form, but when fresh, all the caps were a much darker brown, and had distinctive rings around the edges.

The only thing notable about these is that I know where they grow in abundance on public land.

I would much rather find P. Cubensis any day. It is known to grow in Florida, correct?

If anyone live in the Miami/Ft.Lauderdale/Palm Beach metro area, can they reccommend some good fields?


Thanks a lot,
Loren

Loren, (shaking my head and chuckleing) the blue meanies only grow in cow pastures.

YES, the cubensis grow in florida. They are right NOW if you go out and look.

Right...ya, just from looking at the pics I could see they probably weren't copelandias, though very similar in appearance.

Anyway, enough of this talk!! = )

Off to find some cubes!

this is what you want to look for....




:uploads/cubecube11:
it is pretty hard to walk across caps like these and not notice them.




:uploads/cubecube22:
a small cube, but ready to be picked. one week earlier i had found a cube in the exact same spot...the stem was at least eight inches long. i let someone else pick that one to give to his wife.

it helps to mark or remember the location of cow patties that you find a cube from, cause two days later theyll be there again.
