Forest areas for actives or not?
    #8806632 - 08/21/08 06:42 PM (10 years, 30 days ago)

I just read in a post someone else made (2 1/2 years ago) that you'd be more likely to find active mushrooms in an area with human development VS. in a forest?? Is this true?? Have I been looking in all the wrong places? Also, I've been hinting in my last few posts that I need some extra tips on hunting, but I don't want to break the rules and ask the wrong questions. Any tips would be appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance.

read the rules over again
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/2263556/an/0/page/0

3. Do not ask what mushrooms can be found growing in your state or immediate area.  That information can be found here:  http://www.shroomery.org/8461/Which-mushrooms-grow-wild-in-my-area Also read the Mushroom Hunting FAQ.

http://www.shroomery.org/8461/Which-mushrooms-grow-wild-in-my-area tells you

Oregon
Conocybe cyanopus
Conocybe smithii
Gymnopilus aeruginosus
Gymnopilus junionius
Gymnopilus liquiritiae
Gymnopilus validipes
Gymnopilus viridans
Panaeolus subbalteatus
Psilocybe azurescens
Psilocybe baeocystis
Psilocybe cyanofibrillosa
Psilocybe cyanescens
Psilocybe fimetaria
Psilocybe liniformans var. americana
Psilocybe pelliculosa
Psilocybe semilanceata
Psilocybe sierrae
Psilocybe silvatica
Psilocybe strictipes
Psilocybe stuntzii
Psilocybe subaeruginascens
Psilocybe subfimetaria

now figure out where each one grows and which ones are common and which are rare, and what season you find them... then go after some good rain.

pan subbs are really common though so if you dont hunt anything else hunt them they are easy to find... read subbedhunters guide http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/7008112#7008112

I didn't break any rules. I don't recall asking what kind of mushrooms to look for or where. I already know what mushrooms, when & where. Actually I was hoping someone might be kind enough to give me some tips...

Let me share my experience -

I've probably spent a LOT of hours searching for mushrooms. I've looked in forests in my area, forests at the beach, grass fields at the beach, yards, my boyfriends dad's 5 acres of forest & lots & lots of other places. And I'm always keeping a look out. The problem is, I've never found anything active. So, I was hoping there was some sort of tip or something that I just don't know about. Some magical secret someone could say "try looking in woodchips under fir trees" or something like that - just something else to remember so maybe I can get high too. You know?

Never said you did, what i did say was read the rules again because the rules tell you what mushrooms to look for..

Then i told you to figure out which ones are most common, pan subbs are probably the most common mushroom anywhere as long as you have new neighborhoods

Psilocybe cyanescens grows on woody debris - in the presence of woodchips and mulched plant beds (particularly under rhododendrons).

pan subbs are really common really extremely common as long as there are new homes with new lawns... look in the rich green lawns http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/7008112#7008112 you will find subbs easily.. also some people say they are as potent as cubes by weight.

i dont know about the gyms, but the gyms i tend to find are always near a hiking trail... its almost as if they wanna be found by humans :wink:

the other mushrooms i dont know much about.

Under rhododendrons & near a hiking trail!! Thanks... that's the sort of tip I meant!

I see what you mean with the rules. I've done a lot of research on all of the ones in my area but none of my research has tips like that. I think the best tips come directly from the experts. :smile:

Sorry for getting defensive about the rules - I've broken them a few times on accident and got e-yelled at. Apparently I'm still a little sensitive on the subject. :blush:

looool word

You should really take a walk through a new neighborhood, sometimes you see them from your car but once your down close to the lawn the subbs really pop out at you. If your having a hard time finding the gyms or other mushrooms subbs should be pretty easy to find...

Also your going to need a decent rain, not some pussy rain so go 1-5 days after a decent rain.

:laugh:

You should keep an eye out for the edibles too... If you havent had good edibles its probably because you  ate Portabella's or buttons which are the most common mushrooms for normal people to eat... and they taste like balls. anyways oysters taste awesome, i havent had any other edibles yet this is  my first year to hunt non psychoactives :/

I found chantrells (sp?) once while searching for actives and didn't realize until later. I left them there and they were right next to the path!! I felt like an idiot.

I figure so many mushrooms are found right next to paths because animals get spores blown onto them deep in the woods then walk the paths spreading them for long distances...

Same with humans.

amanita muscaria you could probably find too, they're really easy to spot
the effects aren't really similar to psilocybin mushrooms, still alright if you ask me though
never took a lot, but the moderate doses were very nice and relaxing

tip: growing out of/near moss and pine needles is where I find them a lot

make sure 100% it's not a deadly amanita
goodluck

Yeah that makes a lot of sense. I bet I've walked right past what I was looking for a million times.

Stamets says mushrooms follow us.  I agree, there are more active mushrooms where humans are involved.

:tripping:
