Australia - Adelaide/SA season 2008 * 1
    #8336672 - 04/28/08 06:10 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

So.. Its been raining a fair bit over the last few days and the temperature is dropping significantly.. Looks like a good start to the season.

Anyone planning any hunting trips in the near future? I haven't had a look anywhere yet but plan to soon.

The only mushrooms I have found in adelaide this year, are the yellow, rough texture cap (has gills underneath), thick stem and looks to only grow from the base of cut stumps.

Anything else, seems to have been majorly screwed by that heatwave we had.

but then again, technically its still TOO EARLY.

Went to investigate north east in the pine forests... only found these at first.. went back a few days later and found some different kind. Uploading pics shortly.

I went back to the pines again and found a broken mountain bike trail so there was scrap wood from that and many pine needles.

I found these growing out of wood and pine needles, they were actually underneath a layer of pine needles. They were in clusters.

Pics are bad... camera battery was dead and refused to take more pictures.

edit: OK here is a screen capture, the movie is too large to post

Found HEAPS of different kinds today. Was unable to take pictures of them in their habitat and now they are just crushed / slightly drying. Found some clusters of them on a hillside in a reservoir. There were some from grassy dense areas and others from pine forests.

Gotta get a camera of my own.

Edit: Pictures coming 5/5/08 - Not sure about actives.. but im positive the larger ones are Laughing Gyms tho.

hey guys, im a long time lurker and first time poster! nice to meet you all.

this will be my first hunting season so i hope you guys can teach me well and i can harvest many kilos of psilocybian containing goods over the winter for my mates and I!

i live in the adelaide hills, near crafers and uraidla. i was just wondering if these areas are any good for hunting?

i have been out about 5 times now looking, but havent found anything yet, even any inactives! oh well i guess it is just far too early in the season!

cheers cya

Gyms are pretty awful, good to look at and try to identify, not much use otherway unless you're desperate. Looks like it might be worth a wander in a few dank spots in the coming week or so.

Ive been looking most days, just no actives apart from the Gymnopilus which are too bitter and terrible.

Going to go for a drive today to see what i can find, so i can look a bit further away. I usually prefer walking since i cant park my car anywhere near where i want to search today. Hopefully i can find some! Sucks i dont own a camera of my own, cant take pictures of them outside doing their thing in nature.Ive been checking a pine forest regularly and a nearby reservoir.

*Are nangs and shrooms any good? I made a cracker from brass fittings that fits into a toolshed vice but havnt had the mushies to try both lol.

Well i'm new to the boards and picking up on types of habitats from other posts i've done my first few hunts around the hills with little luck. But i guess to keep this thread alive heres some pics of my of my last treks.




I assume they were Amanita muscaria but i didn't properly try to ID them since i wasn't going to pick them anyway, seems people have far too many bad experiences with them.

I also found some other mushrooms earlier today which i have no idea what they are, redish brown tops with an uplifting cap and white stem and darkish gills. I'll post some pics later when a spore print develops.

hey slyfox, ive never had mushies and nangs together but i have tried lsd and nags together and its nuts. Just get ready to get absolutely messed up!

Anyway back on topic today i was walking through the botanical gardens (the outside grassy area) and i saw sooo many different types of mushrooms, but they all seemed to be drying up :frown: lots of inactives and some that i thought were subs but they didnt bruise blue :frown: Oh well im going hunting in the hills tomorw! cant wait

Onwards with more pics, not sure what these fellers are. Kinda got a bit excited noticing the uplifting gills in the older shrooms which i've seen in pics of subs when i picked them but now i'm not sure at all.



habitat:mulch/barkchips near trees but not directly under them.
gills:darkish colour(nagging feeling that these darkened after i picked them)
Stem:white prior picking, seem yellowish afterwards
cap: redish brown, uplifting on older species
bruising: none observed
Location: adelaide hills

scuttles those are nothing like subs. much too large, gills wrong colour, etc. just a friendly suggestion - do a little bit more research before hunting so you know what to look for.

All of those places over a week.. just on random treks, not searching crazily for them. Hopefully i will be going on a well prepared look tomorrow if theres some rain. Usually bring my bag of tools, food, drink and bud.

Should be hunting with a mate on the weekend.


*Ah also wanted to note that theres a patch of Pan Subbs growing over my back fence in someone elses backyard (Atleast i think they are. I gazed into their backyard for a good 30 minutes! If only i could get my hands on them:shocked:) My backyard has some odd mushrooms that im making a spore print of right now, im not even sure what the hell its growing out of. MUST GET PICTURES.

scuttles, those look like mature amanitas.

i've seen a lot of galerinas around adelaide in the last week or two, mostly suburban mulched garden areas. i hate them because on first spec i always hope they might be a spread of psil cyan.

been to a few spots in the hills - no goldies yet. more cold, more rain please.

also question: does anyone know of places that have psilocybe cyanescens patches around the adelaide region? i knew one place that produced a couple of large patches every year for about 4 years, then has nearly gone dead the last couple years. i prefer this species over subs because they are smaller and more active imo. you don't have to tell me your spot X, just general info about the conditions they are growing in.

and who here has done the honey thing with mushies? success? wisdom?

Generally all the goldy top, whitey stem mushrooms containing psilocybin found in the Adelaide Region are considered P. Subaeruginosa or a sub-variation. Think more research needs to be done in this area on a microscopic level.

Most subs will bruise blue pretty quickly, within 5 minutes or so, or already have blue bruises on them, you can usually see spore deposits on the stem sometimes as a sort of purply black sooty residue caught on the webs of the stem, for quicker identification if you are experienced and know what you're looking for.

Haven't been having all that colder nights up here yet though, been too cloudy, just that cold snap over anzacs, hopefully with these few clear days coming up early next week we'll get some sub 5 degree minimums to kick fruiting off well and truly for all you lads and ladettes not knowing where to look.

Slyfox, Pan Subbs!??? man you got to get a camera, I don't doubt you cos i've seen similar looking shrooms growing from my lawn after spring rains numerous years ago. Would be interesting to have a Positive ID on them is all.

That's why i'm asking about the P.cyanescens. I know they are not native, but they are a distinct species easy to identify by cap, gill attachment and habit, and potency. and i know where to find them. in adelaide. if it rains enough this year. i was just wondering if anyone else had stumbled across a similar goldmine.

even still, cleland came up with 11 different varieties native to SA alone. you're probably right, more microscopic studies are needed. happy hunting.

sollie cyanescens don't grow in Australia at all, native or not. Only Psilocybe subaeruginosa grows down there and it's the only caramel coloured one you want to look for. The subspecies eycalypta, australiana etc. have been merged back into Psilocybe subaeruginosa. Subs. That's all you want to look for.

I've never heard of a confirmed Pan subbs find in Australia either. If you find some, post them here because it'd be a really cool find. Panaeolus foenesicii look really similar, so make sure you test the print: dark brown (foes) vs. jet black (subbs).

Amanitas have white spores, those largish red ones aren't amanitas. Not sure what they are, you don't mention how big they are, but they print and look similar to Stropharia spp. maybe. Not active or edible.

went hunting again today and found lots of amantias, and lots of strophs (i think :wink: and some small brown topped ones that i thought were subs but they didnt bruise black :frown: so sad!

hey i was wondering do subs only really fruit in barkchips because i was looking all today in a national park and i didnt find a single one, and i was thinking was it because there is no barkchips? or is it just far too early in the season?

cheers and good luck hunting

Amanitas have white spores, those largish red ones aren't amanitas. Not sure what they are, you don't mention how big they are, but they print and look similar to Stropharia spp. maybe. Not active or edible.




Oh i think i accidently caused some confusion there, the first pics are of a seperate species, i never picked them because i had nothing to put them into and if they were amanitas i wasn't sure i wanted them cause i've heard some bad reports from them due to that secondary toxin they got in them. The second lot of photo's were from a different species i found in which i did have the means to transport them but no camera on me so i took them home with me.
When i first saw the species from the second lot of photo's they did bear a striking resemblence to sub's but were a dark reddish colour from looking down on them, the caps were up 4-8cm wide and they grew in clusters and after i noticed the first couple i saw a couple hundred of them behind them so i was curious to what they were, sorry about the confusion.

Also the first lot of pics the ones i think were Amanitas were as big if not bigger then the palm of my hand easily up to 20cm.

hopefully i can get some pics. don't ask me how they got there but i am quite sure they are psilocybe cyanescens. they don't look or grow like subs at all, to my knowledge. growing on a maintained mulched garden bed in a public place, growing under what i think are grey box eucalypts and around acacia shrubs. fruiting has been sparse last two years, but 3-5 years ago they were growing in two patches, say 6x6 metre patches with literally hundreds in each patch, densely gregarious, wavy caps with a small nipple in maturity, brown/dark gold cap, white stem, stains very blue, deep purple spore print, they are a bit more woody than subs (i've eaten them fresh, dried and brewed), and a bit more potent too. the cap gorws to about the same diameter as subs, but the stipe doesn't grow as tall. gill attachment becomes more subdecurrent with age and the cap uplifts. if this description sounds more like subs, then i stand corrected. i hope i can get some pics for you guys, the hunt would be on for young and old.

Really? No kidding, I don't doubt that because someone else had actually reported them growing in his backyard. He lived around the Ethelton area and said he had horses in his backyard so there was a lot of dung in the ground. Also I've been to a horse feild a fair few times and I suspect the corpses I've found there were Pan Subbs, never found em fresh though.

Anyway here are some SA "goldtops" from todays hunt:


there was about thrice as many around but they were immatures and bug infesteds. only my best locations are producing anything at all for me right now. most places are still too dry...

Am pretty new to this and I require a little help and guidance. I am looking for some relief for my cluster headaches. Can someone help me identify these mushrooms? They are fairly small...approx 4-5cm long. Photos are not the best but any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers and thanks

awesome. i've been trekking all over the place in the last week with no luck at all. none of my regular OR irregular spots are producing yet. what sort of environment did these ones come from? any landscape pics? well done mate :thumbup:

its a large carpark in the hills which is heavily landscaped with woodchips. plenty of shrubs, trees and plants are in the woodchip beds. I didn't take any shots in the natural habitat because I forgot my camera. but i have heaps of photos from previous years in old SA threads (or my gallery) - they are all the photos with woodchips. all my other locations are more natural habitats like this one ...

went hunting again today in adelaide hills, and found an aweomse pine forest with pine needles littering the ground for miles.

Found many huge amantias (didnt take any) but nothing else apart from a couple of dead/shrivelled up old small mushies and a few strophs. I have seen so many strophs around and i hate them soo mucyh because i get so excited everytime i see them because they kinda look like subs. Does anyone know if inactives appear before active mushies?

lots of rain this weekend hopefully so it should be a good one!

cya all

how long does it take for myc bodies to start fruiting after heavy rain? also will the temp drop enough this weekend to kick off the season?

went for a hike yesterday in some pine forest. first time i've hunted one of them. i've only ever picked from natural habitat or garden beds. lots of mycology. lots of amanitas kicked and trampled. i'm not sure of any of these, except the amanita:

is this panaeolus subbaltaetus?












and from a native area a few days earlier:

thanks for the compliment guys! sollie - those aren't Panaeolus subbalteatus because they aren't in dung or grass. that gymnopilus habitat looks like it might have a few subs around though. btw if you're after identification I recommend creating a seperate thread you'll get more replies. generally these season threads are mostly for active finds

thanks tryptonite. will keep it to actives from now. i searched through a few pine forests for 4 hours and saw no subs. either none fruiting yet or someone got in before me and stripped the place bare.

wasn't looking for any specific IDs, just thought i'd throw them up for interest.

any ideas on my rain/temp question?

Yep, judging by the rain forecast, there has been plenty of cold enough nights this week, very dewey mornings all over, so next week should be a good week for a successful hunt with a bit more rain and cold temps.

2SWZZL, if you have spare time up your sleeve, grab a street directory and look up any place that might have natural habitat like conservation parks etc in the hills, maybe public places that might have mulched gardens, and all of the pine forests around the adelaide/fleureau region, and start driving and hiking.

most people i know keep their locations pretty hows ya father... considering all the time and effort and $$ spent on finding them.

apparantly the crawford pine forests do produce, but you probably have to wait till next week after the rains this weekend. hopefully there'll be some action up there and all other hallowed locations next week.

2swizl the only thing out of touch in your life is "you" and "reality"

dont join up and start asking for shit straight up it never has worked and never will.

maybe you should mind your own business out of mother natures business dickhead.


I dont know If I can actually stop typing now about you man.

mind my own business when you never REFERRED TO ANYONE AND YOU TYPED IT ON A PUBLIC FORUM FOR HUNTING WHICH MANY PEOPLE READ.

dont spend the rest of the mushy season stewing about getting called a dickhead, just spend it wondering why someone would call you it, when that someone would love to help YOU find what you want?


** and one very last thing.

if you are a fairs fair man 2swizl, you will now proceed in telling dizzlwizzl to mind his business now too.

all good bro, honey goes wayyyyyyyy further in life than vinegar :smile:

and maybe you'l find so many that you'l need help carrying them!!! with your sore shoulder and all!

one little tip man, that area you were talking about that "had" trees, then were cut down....

if the chips are still about from this felling this sounds like an absolutely fucking killa place to start looking man.

it could be even better (once it gets wet from these rains of course) than when u first went even.

and just like psilocybian dude said please, please dont eat anything until u know what is IS or ISNT.

Wankers!!! in a skyline!!! Never!!!!:tongue:

Sollie, think subs tend to stick around for a while, maturation from pins probably over 3-5 days in optimum weather, probably a bit longer in this slightly warmer weather,  not 100 percent on that though. 

I have found subs throughout the many numerous Mt Crawford Forest areas, right through to down to the south coast along the heysen trail and many spots in between habitats of gums and pines.

Same here, i had trouble with my pics only keeping 6-8 out of 60 pics. Was good to see some subs out, quite a few pins so now the season is gaining momentum, it will be all uphill from now.

Gday
    I'm a Patriot from the Adelaide Hills and I'm new to the forum. Ive been an active mushroom seeker for now 17yrs:thumbup:
Most certainly now after this weekends rain,mushrooms will be out in force. I do know of a lot of different spots and there are certain spots I do keep to myself. If things go OK with this forum I'm more then happy to meet up with other eager mushroom hunters and we can make a day of it.
There's nothing better then a couple or group of friends going out picking. Mainly these days I go out by myself, which is kind of boring:rolleyes:
I tend not to abuse the :mushroom2: these days as I have a family now and its what we call Responsibility:tongue2:, but I must say I have definitely had my fun:crazy2:
I'm happy to keep in touch with this thread and keep the photos going
All the best.

Hi there sounds good;) I'm always eager:tongue2: I cant get the madness out of my mind lol.I do have msn chat if that helps us to all get started to meet each other. For myself I do have a day or two a fortnight during the week that I'm free. I realize the weekends are more convenient but weekends are a little more busier regarding the public. Thanks for the interest All the best

Regarding Mt Crawford I'm referring to the section up towards Williamstown and Cromer. I believe the camp grounds are located towards Williamstowm, but I'm not certain. This is one spot I have not really sussed out. I have been to a couple of areas around there but no luck. I would really like to head up that way if any one else is keen . we can go on an adventure

I went for a hunt today but only found 1000's of strophs in this forest. I didnt expect to find many subs but i was hoping id find some amanita's.

Didnt find either of them :frown:

I went for a walk around my local area and found some tasty looking edibles, also found a few possible suburb patches (hopefully).

I think i might go hunt for some subs tomorrow, ive got a few places i think would be great producers.

Yeah, ive been through second valley a few times now. Its quite nice but so far from me and my income is quite limited right now. Soon i'll be able to look up towards those ways, for now its the northern hills / suburbs for me.

No one will give away hints as to exact locations where they grow, but heres some info that might be of some help to you.

-youll find cubensis in cow paddocks growing out of dung.

-semilanceata grows on grassy meadows and similar; particularly in wet, south-facing fields and other habitats well fertilized by sheep and other cattle feces.

-subaeruginosa in wood chips, pine needles, piles of leaves and woody debris in urban areas and along trails and roads in deciduous forests and landscaped gardens.

Hope that helped you a bit:thumbup:
Happy hunting and good luck.

YAY i finally found some subs today!!!!

went hunting in a wlidlife reserve in the rain, and after about 15 mins i stumbled across a patch of subs which were growing out of a pile of decomposing foilage. Got about 15 medium to small sized ones, and left lots of pins and other small ones.

SOOO HAPPY!!!

I want to gobble them up right now but i have got sooo much uni work to do,,, cant wait until the weekend!

sollie if you search the site you will find cubensis growing in the more tropical parts of australia man in summer rains.

farmer88 in fact is one person who finds them on a dairy property in very nice form.

shroomkma also is another name you can find has hunted cubensis successfully in OZ

cope cyans (blue meanies the Proper blue meanie not what dumb fks label subaeruginosas or psilocybes in general) also grow in tropical australia too.

peace out

Cutting up shrooms into small pieces isn't the way to go i would have thought, that purple/black color you are seeing is the oxidization of one of the active chemicals (psilocin i think) that causes the blue staining for id purposes. Either that or they got fried from too much heat.

hey guys just updating you on the trip last night.

I rakon i took about 3 grams of semi dried on a full stomach .

It was very, very, very weak, i got slight tingiling in my legs after about 1 hour and got slight closed eye visions but then just went to bed after about 1.5 hours because i was bored.

I regret cutting up the shrooms because as a forumer has said it causes increased oxidaiton of the psilocin therefore weaker trips.

I wetn hunting again today and found some more subs (about 10 medium-small sized ones) and i bought some damp rid today and have set up a drying container with 3 containers of damprid at the bottom, and mesh above that and then the shrooms ontop. Cant wait for the weekend ey?

cheers guys happy hunting

kingoflsd, did you know if you have a currentish frost free fridge, that u can place them on dinner plate uncovered on a secluded shelf and they will dry out nicely.

I have seen other posts saying the exact same thing and they havent noticed loss in potency and it dries them "cracker dry"

Only the spores are purple. Intense psilocybin oxidation goes black. So keep that in mind, as youll want to differentiate between the two.

But cutting it up only gave extra surface area for oxidation, so yes, you 'deactivated' your copper tops. Next time remember, fresh is best.

adelaide99, you probably should eat them fresh, just like catching a fish its just the way it is! to be eating it after you caught it.

and stuff washing them man, thats for girls!!!those lil black bugs you find on them dont worry about them, hippies I hear like the crunchiness.

if its got maggots or other stuff you should be or ARE worried about then just leave them and take freshly looking ADULT specimens.


but for some reason you cant eat them, yes you should dry them properly so that they can be consumed another day without much or any at all lose of potency.

one method I have heard spoken of many times is using a frost free fridge, putting them on a plate uncovered and placing the plate of shrooms on a secluded shelf and letting them dry out to "cracker dry"


then you can take them out, store them in a paper bag unsealed (in their cracker dry state remember) until you want to eat them.

alternatively you can search up this site! the methods of using "damp rid" for drying or those little packets of moisture absorbers found in various products.

checking your finds is such great wisdom you have obviously learnt and even by you just repeating it someone else will hear it so goodstuff man!!!!

hey myrealname that sounds sweet ill have to try it out some time, but its a bit dody now because i still live at home with my parents so having a plate of strange looking mushrooms might not go down so well :frown:

i am drying them via the damp rid way and it has been about 1 day and they havent dried much yet though? how long does it usually take to fresh mushies to become cracker dry when drying them in a sealed container with damprid.

cheers

ps i went hunting today and found 4 baby gold tops :frown: will the area i found the gold tops in continue to produce more gold tops throughout the season and into next season? or is that all im getting?

cheers all

hi all,

located about 40 this morning. about 10 of those were pins, 4 of them were fully opened, and the rest were in between but still immature. i took 37 photos, but here's a small taste:



for the record, i want some very experienced heads to inform us what is the appropriate time to pick mushrooms size wise?

i mean, we all want our mushrooms to continue to grow year after year so that our children can trip like we did right? i always assumed that one should wait till they are fully opened up so that they have released a maximum amount of spores, and even then i pour water on them to wash the spores off, and cut the stem off instead of pulling them out so that the mycelium stays in situ, unless i want two or three butts for cloning.

so what's the go? i hate it when people pick pins and immature veiled or half opened mushies. bugs the shit outta me. i guess i'm on a sustainability rant. i want wild mushies to remain forever. respect the mush. pick wisely.

i know its hard because we might think, "shit, maybe i should just pick all these now because otherwise someone else will come tomorrow and take them." but its not on.

plus i'm tripping on those four mature ones i found as we speak. woohooo! eaten semi-fresh and washed down with some mercury cider. draught obviously.

another question for experienced mushroomers: i have observed lots of patches of wild mycelium growing in my favourite spots, but every year only about 20% of the mycelium patches i find end up fruiting. IS THIS BECAUSE our winter is too short for the mycelium to fully colonise some substrates? i have read that FULL colonisation is essential for fruiting to being. i'm thinking of ways to shelter mycelium patches so that they stay alive through our summer.

peace all, keep tripping. trip wisely. wise tripley. wisdom and tripping go together like truth and promise keeping. literally.

just dry them on layed out newspaper in front of a fan for a few days and they will go crispy dry to the point they will snap when forced.
Then store in a snap lock bag or a glass jar to preserve them away from the air and light.
The best way to store them is to grind them up and jar it as tight as possible, it can last for upto 4 years this way, possibly even more and still remain as potent as the day it was jarred. You can also store the powder in capsules, which apparently works quite well too.

sollie take spore prints by placing the cut off caps gills down on white paper with a glass over the cap to keep humidity up so it releases spores

then place these spore prints in spring water type bottled water (dont use tap water it will kill the spores).

go buy some water pistols (the hunt at target etc will be fun finding the largest furtherest and fattest spraying meanest water guns!!!!!) and fill them with your heavily laden spore water and guerilla seed your habitats.

In my opinion compared to massive sprayings of spores, I wouldnt be bothering with the water pouring over the caps / thumping them before you pick them which I heard is another myth, they already are dropping heaps of spores in that very patch well before you get to a matureish cap.

ps I am going to credit "farmer88" for this technique, I read he had put a cubensis on a mesh rack or something on his quad bike front or back and left it dangling to drop spores all the way he rode or something very similar along those lines, but I wanted to credit it as a golden killa tech!

and on the size thing I have come to the understanding that you should only ever cut off at the base of course with scissors anything thats bigger than an australian 10 cent piece.

but Im sure everyone would be flat out lying to nature to say they have never taken a pin before cos they LOOKED SOOOOOOOO CUTE! like a little parachute MAN, and then make up for it droping 2 litres of spores for its token.

I also believe that some pins dont get any bigger and are called "aborts" and are supposed to be "by weight" stronger than an adult, much as to an ant is by weight stronger than yourself!!!. But of course that doesnt mean rape pins etc etc.


peace

Hi Sollie
          I will do my best to help you out with your concerns. I'm sure many pickers have often wondered when is the best time to pick the mushrooms so we can assure their survival. Well put it this way, I'm pretty confident to tell you there will always be mushrooms,unless we never ever get rain :crazy:
If you just think about it for a moment and think of all the mushrooms here in Australia and the rest of the world. There are thousands of mature mushrooms sporing all the time. One mushroom can release millions of spores and only a few spores will fruit:mushroom2:
Also woods and forests and Conservation Pks and gum plantation are always going to be here one would hope :eek: So I think mushrooms are pretty safe to Flourish :cool:
Regarding Picking young mushrooms(Bullets) It all comes down to commonsense. If there was a patch of say 50 bullets and a few older ones. Rest assure picking a few bullets will certainly not have a negative effect with future fruitings.
Now if there was only two bullets in one spot and not much else in the whole area. It certainly would be sensible to leave them there.:sun:
There is one book which I highly recommend which is Mycelium running How mushrooms can help save the  world by Paul stamets:thumbup: This book will give you the best and most informed answers about Mycelium. As I certainly cannot other than what the book has said and regarding the weather changes e.g Shorter winters. I would say it would certainly have an effect.
Although I think There's more than meets the eye with climate change :eek:
but that's for another day. I have a very interesting Web site about the Weather,It is that :crazy: I just shake my head:shocked: If you would like to know more let me know:) Thanks

thanks for the responses guys, i was slightly tipsy when i posted that, my apologies. i've seen patches of pins/bullets where i've come back the next day and someone has raped the lot. even to the extent of digging out the myc. it makes me nervous every year when i see a fresh patch and say to myself, give em another two days...

it would be interesting to find out more about psilocybin production in the life cycle of the mushies, to find out when is the optimum psilocybin to weight ratio.

i'm gonna do that guerilla style sporing with a water gun. i have prints. i'd love to do a BRF spawn and crumble it onto some woodchiped gardens, but that seems like too much of a headf*!k with the pressure cooking etc. i'm attempting a cardboard spawn, its happening.....slowly. i hope i can transplant it before winter ends.

A lot of the subs are drying out in exposed areas. Found a few fresh ones under tree and shrubbery cover. They're definitely fruiting in more areas, now we need a decent re-saturation to trigger the next flush.






Sollie i dont think full colonization is required for fruiting. Depends how you define it, but i take it you mean the entire surface of the substrate covered in mycelium. I cant really say for sure the conditions you need them to fruit at.

hey lads i just went hunting up in the adelaide hills and i found lots of gold tops. went for around 2 hours and found about 25 meduim sized mushies. they must be from the recent rain.

had my first mushie trip on the wkend and it was sooo good, much better than acid. I reakon me and a mate had 4 grams dried each and it was incredible until my mate started spiriling into a bad trip, he couldnt even hear us or understand what we were saying, but he came good in the end.

Going to the zoo on mushies this weeked, so if you see a group of lads laughing their asses off with huge pupils give us a wave.

cya

Its a old cybershot, DSC-P51 its only 2 mega pixels. The cameras damaged and you need good lighting, and in shade the photos turn out pixelated. Definitely a decent camera though.

Some really nice photos guys, love the look of those subs we get here.

Was down south over the weekend and went for a brief walk:


Not sure what that second mushroom is but there were hordes of them around the pines.

Hey Trixxy

You were quick with the photo's, got back home from the hunt and they were already there waiting. The shrooms look even nicer in your pics than they did on-site. I'm fan drying them now. Thanks again for being my guide for the day.

I tried to by some desiccant crystals yesterday. Went to Bunnings, Coles, then a health food shop. No-one had them or could offer any idea were i could buy any. Any suggestions?

Great pictures everyone. A lot of the subs are looking quite robust. Mottling seems less common then it used to be.

Trixxy in your post on the 4th, that second mushroom's Lactarius deliciousus (sp?) or Milky cap. As the name suggests, its a choice edible though the small ones are harvested. I suggest frying it up, chopped with butter, salt/pepper and served on bread.

They're quite easy to identify. Older specimens stain green and when the gills are cut bleed a milky orange liquid.

i found these mushrooms yesterday, after it had been raining. i was wondering if anyone can identify them for me? i dont think there anything special, just thought ide check.
and sorry about the bad pictures, they were taken on my phone.

hello! if people do know they wouldn't tell you :wink:. You're new to mushroom hunting so I'll save you some trouble. Magics are difficult to find in SA so people are protective of their locations and probably won't tell you. However there are two ways to find mushrooms the easiest being to go hunting with an experienced shroomer. that is what many people do here. also you can try to learn to find them by yourself but it is hard work. Although when you find them once its much easier to find them again. good luck :thumbup:

Went for a wee wander today in a southern Eucalypt forest.

After around an hour I happened upon a solitary, bug-eaten specimen. This was the first sub I had ever found while hunting on my own and in a previously un-explored area. So I was quite chuffed.



Some time later I found a perfect little gully that turned up quite a few more. I did find subs last weekend with Trixxy, but they were his spots and I was merely following his lead. It's cool to have found a spot of my own, not so far from home.

I'm still learning to use my digital camera properly and have had to delete quite a few blurry pics. But here is a taste of my trip.










Her's the collective haul... (reference point - 50 cent piece)



I thought this sub was extremely meaty. Really fleshy cap and solid stalk. At first I though it wasnt a sub but it stained blue and has the correct spore print so...



Now i just have to find the time and courage to eat them... Never tripped before so it should be interesting, just a little apprehensive though tripping alone.

that's the shot para noia, top effort. i'd say two of those big ones fresh or in a tea would be a good first trip if you are already experienced in acid/weed/other drugs etc. if not, just try one. you'll want to get a feel of the mushie trip without going too fullon.

here's some highlights from my latest walk this morning.

Thanks for the comments people.

Well, your not far wrong shroomemup, its an American Bulldog (taller and longer than the English variety) - beautiful natured dog.

Wait...

Just noticed you actually wrote Am Bulldog. If that's what you meant, pretty damn impressive. How on earth did you pick that from just the lower legs?

Very nice habitat shots there Sollie.

hey everyone.

today i found a patch of mushrooms growing in a creek in a patch of bark/mulch. the gills where white and left a rusty brown spore print, also when touched it would leave a rusty brown on my fingers. the cap was kinda of umbonate, light brown with a darker brown on the "nipple".
anyone know what this is and can give me a site with more information?
thanks

Am I too late? [Re: trixxy]
    #8512773 - 06/11/08 10:13 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Wait! wait! *runs in, panting*

...Am I too late? Have I missed out?

Heh. Sorry- I'm nolly, I'm new here. I've been lurking over the last week or so, reading up and soaking up everything the shroomery has to offer. I had my first lot of shrooms finally the other day- given to me by friends of friends. I decided afterwards that I just had to get into this hobby of finding the little suckers.

My friends and I went for a wander up in the adelaide hills on monday- one of us said he knew what we were looking for. In hindsight, he didnt. Haha. We found heaps of funny witches hat style things similar to those in the first few posts of this thread- which he said were liberties. I didn't think they grew here but I went along with it.

They didn't work (I didnt eat them, wasnt convinced- but the others did and nothing happened). I went back the next day for a look myself and found two mushies that looked a lot like gold tops, so I picked them and spore printed them. Sure enough, the spores are purpley/black. looking at these and the pics of subs, I think that's what they are. Obviously won't be eating them, they've rotted out now making the spore print.

Was thinking of going back there, but then, that whole area was pretty barren. What I wanted to ask all you knowlegable fellows is: Is it too late? have they all been picked by now? I was thinking of going for a wander tomorrow morning somewhere- see if I can go up to the hills and find myself some patches of my own- but I wasn't sure if it'd still be worth it?

I'm new to this, but willing and eager to learn. New to shrooms, that is- I've taken a lot of other things and am quite learned in the ways of substances. I'm one of those people who likes to learn how things work.

Anyway- Sorry for rambling. Cheers!

Ok, deep breaths Nollykin...

Don't panic, in very general terms I think the season usually fires up around May and peters out in August. However, it all depends on the temperatures and rainfall of the particular season, so its a good idea to keep you're eye on the weather. We have had plenty of rain this last week, so now and the coming weekend would be a perfect time to start looking.

With ID of the shrooms, the best advice I can give you is either find an experienced shroomer who knows what they are doing to take you on a hunt or 2, and/or post photos of your finds along with sporeprint so that peolpe here can help you. It takes a little time to begin with, but once you have found a few, you will begin to pick them out of the crowd fairly easily.

Not so long ago I was kind of in the same boat, so I can understand your enthusiasm. Just do your research, there is an absolute wealth of information on this forum if you look back and take the time to read through it. Others from this site more knowledgable than myself (and there are many), will probably be able to elaborate.

Good luck anyway.

3 things for sub id:

1-stains blue.

2-spore color.
3-habitat and looks like a sub.

Not sure on the third one as a solid rule though, but definitely the first two cannot be broken.

Congratulations for not eating something you're not 100% sure of is a sub (I mean even getting someone on here to ID via photo).  You should probably uppercut your friends  , not the smartest thing to eat any sub looking mushroom.

Patches usually fruit a few times a year, so theres basically a constant supply throughout the season provided you don't disturb the soil that the shrooms grow in too much/pick shroom patches by cutting the stems with scissors.

Good Luck.

Yeah, nice pics 2SWZZL 

Sniffed out a few spanky new patches today. More southern Eucalypt habitats not far from my home.

Early on in the hunt I munched 4 smallish shrooms (freshly snipped) for what I hoped would be my first ever trip, but nothing...

Maybe a very slight sense of altered state, but really more placebo than anything.

I kept expecting the trip to take me by surprise (like when you eat potent cookies), but it was quite an anticlimax. Perhaps i didn't eat enough to reach threshold? Though i thought 4 would at least give me a bit of a tickle.

Should i perhaps try 8-10 of the smaller ones next time?

Once again i found myself deleting a heap of out of focus pics due to dodgy camera work on my part, but here are some of the 'less dodgy' pics.

Enjoy...

P.S. I would have put the pics in as clickable thumbnails to save room but, i don't know how to.

Charlie if you have an ID request you should post it in the main hunting forum and list the habitat as well..

that said, they may be Cortinarius

yo paranoia dont stress it happens.

next time just try this so u can see what they do.

take 4 of the biggest stems and caps u have on that plate fresh and then

measure a cup of water and put it in a small saucepan with the 4 biggest adult cap and stem combo u have on the plate in ur last pic.

simmer (no bubbles tho) for an hour, standing there with a fork squeezing and manipulating the matter for the hour.

after the hours up, take out all the bits of mushroom u can with just a fork. dont be scared if u still see any floaties.

then put in coffee and sugar abit stronger than how u normally have it (for the taste), splash of milk to cool it for your excited, curious lips even.

Pour back into the same glass u poured the water into the saucepan with. (there will be less than when u started obviously due to evap etc)

for a makeshift funnel just cut a 2litre bottle so u can throw it out after, but still have effective funnelness.

now drink it and then see what u see.


ps, dont use a tea bag as teabags going in have been known to take out the goodshit post extraction and u then throw it out, I was always told to make the "tea bag style tea" first!, then add ur mushies to make your other tea. So to clarify just make COFFEE INSTEAD!!!!

got some nice shots there Para Noia :thumbup:! btw 4 shrooms is way too little, I usually have about 2.5x that amount but even that is not much compared to what some of my freinds eat - 20+ large subs :eek: tripping is about going way outta your comfort zone (be prepared for a bad trip) so go eat 10 subs and hold onto your seat!

don't waste your energy, newbies never listen.

anyway here are some shots I took yesterday of Adelaide Suburb subs



as you can see none of them are mature yet because the conditions are not very ideal in the suburbs

and heres a couple photos I forgot to post from a hunt with ummagumma on May 31

Been on a few good outings recently. Regular spots producing well and have found a few new bonza heavy producing locations. The above average rain in May really kicked the season into gear. Lets hope for good rain in June and July.

Found these today at one of the new locations. Blue Subs. I've heard of people talking about blue meanies in Australia. Is this what they mean? Because I know Panaeolus Cyanescens are called blue meanies in other countries.




There's a normal goldie in the last pic for comparison.

I ate one on the way home just to guage their strength. About a 20 cent piece size. I would say it was as strong as 2 normal gold tops of the same size. A bit meaner than normal perhaps.

I think he meant that people in SA might of have been calling blue subs BM's. i don't think he wasn't saying that his mushrooms were blue meanies/panaeolus cyanescens right?

correct tryptonite. i am guessing they are the same as normal goldtops but with higher levels of psilocin, hence more oxydation/bluing at the surface. this might account for the reportedly 'meaner' trip too. dont know whether this is genetic, substrate or ecologically based variation, but definitely literally blue magic mushrooms. after spore printing them, they have semi-dried to a palid green/blue colour now. spore print is the same purple as normal.

yeah my question was about what are south aussies calling blue meanies, because i have heard about them for many years now, even from friends. and i seriously doubt they mean panaeolus/copelandia cyanescens because i know they dont hunt for their mushies in dung. if blue subs are relativelty common and south aussies are calling them blue meanies then i think we have a better claim to the name than those who call pan cyans blue meanies, because from what i've heard pan cyans are white and you need to eat heaps to get a decent effect. i can tell everyone now, from now on if i find any more mushies like the ones above i will be calling them blue meanies, because they are blue and pretty damn strong. this is my nonscientific argument for colloquial naming rights.

has anyone else come across mushies like this?

the only other difference i found macroscopically is the stems were more fragile/less woody than the average australian psilocybe (if there is such a thing). the stems were totally blue as well apart from some flecks of white towards the cap end.

i'm excited.

You should be excited! :super:
Ive come accross some similar before in rich eucalypt mulch, though some of your stems are more woody coloured than blue from what i can see..? The caps are damn blue:yesnod:
Yea id say higher levels of psilocybin most likely caused from the substrate quality in which it was growing.
They were either talking bout cubes or pan cyans, or they got it wrong, i dont think we get copes here.
Though i like what you say, cause they certainly look blue enough, and by the looks of them they look pretty mean too lol so why not call them blue meanies, you know what i mean;)

Hey 2SWZZL, was that you, ummagumma and sammay out at the pines this morning in a white van?

As i was returning to my car I saw you guys (if it was you) head for a massive patch I had just photographed.

Went down after and saw three guys eagerly filling 3 brown paper bags. Hope you guys left some standing. There were a LOT!

Would of stopped for a chat but it wasn't til later that i figured it was probably you guys back again after your finds in your last post.

Quite a coincidence really...

Hope my last post didn’t come off as a self righteous wank. I just like to look after those patches (take only what i need / snip stems with scissors), so they are still thriving next visit :wink:

Anyhoo...

here are a few pics from my walk this morning before the fellow shroomers arrived. I noticed a lot of the shrooms exhibited a kind of chapped, dehydrated appearance. Some had begun to blacken significantly. I guessed it was down to the relative openness of the location and exposure to sun/wind drying them out? There were a LOT of subs, but they weren’t particularly healthy looking examples in comparison to some of my other patches.








Anyone know what these orange spungy ones are? Not edible are they? They were EVERYWHERE...

Don't mean to be a forum hog, but I just realised something...

Look at the 3rd pic in 2SWZZL second set of photos from the 06/19/08 06:57 AM above,

Now look at my first 2 pics from today,

Its the same bloody bush! :shocked:

So I guess it was you three there today. At least next time i'll know to say g'day...

Considering the size of the forest and that 2SWZZL and I have never met or shared patches, thats bloody uncanny!

Nah sorry Champ that was not us. We were there back on the 17/6/08 which was a Tuesday and we certainly were not in a White van when we were there.

You are right! I just carefully examined the two photos and the branches are 100% spot on! Same with the shrooms lol
So who didnt pick the mushrooms? Either that or it was another flush of mushrooms in the exact same spot :strokebeard:

I'd be keen for a wander around, especially if some rains come. actually when some rains come.  must be a bit optimistic about this.

Well, I didn't pick any yesterday - just took photos, but the three guys who came after me (whoever they were) were certainly cleaning up. Amazing coincidence anyway.

I didn't look closely at the shrooms, but if 2SWZZL & co. picked the ones in their last post, i guess the only logical assumption is that they were a new flush.


Would like to come along for a wander ummagumma but I have to leave  in the next couple of weeks for a new house/job for 6 months. We'll see...

OOISI said:Trixxy in your post on the 4th, that second mushroom's Lactarius deliciousus (sp?) or Milky cap. As the name suggests, its a choice edible though the small ones are harvested. I suggest frying it up, chopped with butter, salt/pepper and served on bread.

They're quite easy to identify. Older specimens stain green and when the gills are cut bleed a milky orange liquid.




Para noia take note, thats the orangey ones you were trying to identify (from the great southern pine fields too i take it) in one of your previous posts.

Cheers Trixxy,

Yeah, I thought they might have been edibles, because i remembered you mentioning it when we saw them on our excursion.

There were literally hundreds of them in the Pines, will have to bring a few home next time.

why pick all the shrooms you/i dont want to kill the patch i try to take the good mushrooms and i tend to leave the little bullets and older sub's alone to regenerate again
and then when its time ill pick the bullets that grew bigger a few days later.


Also any1 know where i can get a electric coffee grinder from so i can turn the dry shrooms into powder.?

Ditto 2SWZZL. It's sad when people indiscriminately rip everything out of the ground but the grass.

Re: the coffee grinder - their are a few on ebay (manual and electric). Otherwise i would guess Haris Scarf, Myer, Big W etc...

I use a Barmix wityh a small fitted bowl on the end so its like a blender. I wasn't sure though whether blending the cracker dry shrooms could cause them to lose their potency?
