Hey makisupa,
Rain doesnt always bring lots of fruiting...I have found that humidity plays a greater roll. Just as ShroomWizard had once stated that mushrooms fruit best when humidity is around 80% or higher. I wake up every morning when the sun is coming up and see plenty of dew on the ground...of coarse a few nice solid minutes of rain would be sufficient too.
I live a little ways south of Tampa. We've had some really dense fog(excellent mushroom weather) during the past two days with humidity levels reaching 100%! So Ill be goin' out tonight.

I highly doubt that the cows in the field you hunt are fed a new cow feed...especially If you found 10 mushrooms recently..so dont sweat that man, you got a good field.

Happy Huntin'z.

"hey makisupa police-man, police-man came to my house.."

Just as GGreat1 said, humidity plays a bigger role in mushroom developement than rain does. When you see humidity at 85% or so for 2-3 days, go lookin. Also a good light drizzle all day seems to promote mushroom developement. Check more than one field. It seems like fields fruit in cylcles. One field could have nothing, another 3 mushrooms, and the other has 3 pounds. This depends on the cycle the fields in. When mushrooms fruit they will continue to fruit for a week-two weeks. Then the spores those mushrooms drop will need time to start the process over. This can also occur in different parts of a field. One side of a field could be in the mycelium stage, while the other side is fruiting. Be sure to check the whole field, especially low spots where fog hangs and shade is provided. Also check in the woods if theres any in the field you pick. The Gulf Coast grows abundant in your state. Its best season is april-october, although it does grow year round and can be found on frosted grass. Just look hard, by next spring, you'll have the hang of it. Good luck pickin' :biggrin: . BTW: keep an eye out for Coplandia Cyanescens, they also grow abundant in Florida.


The Lizard,

Ehh, Conditions werent as favorable tonight as I had earlier anticipated. Found two rather sad looking Copelandias growing side by side...After only ten minutes of forageing, my patience for some reason wore thin tonight.
The week-long forecast is foggy rainy sunshine should be heating up...so im really looking forward to get some of my night picking done in clouds of fog.!

Hey Lizard, how has your picking been up in Atlanta lately?...Shroom_Wizard, how have the fields been treating you?

Its done here man. Went out last night for 3 hours, left with nadda. Theres been frost on the grass for the past week. Too cold. I did find 4 Cubensis at the very beggining of December. It shows me that whatever strain is growing here is hardy growing. I'm sure theres a few somewhere in some field, its just not worth the effort for 1-2 mushrooms after 2 hours of searching. I talked with the Wizard the other day and he hadn't gotten a chance to make it out yet this week but planed to friday I believe. I'm sure he found something, he is the Wizard :wink:

The Lizard,
