  1. HI people , so i ordered this kit and 2 others which they got confiscated by the customs , the one i tried to grow is golden teacher and the second day after i put it in a bag the whole medium turns orange as you can see in the picture . and since im a newbie ,i don't know whats going on and after 9 days i still can't see any actuall pins (just some very very small brown sticks)
  2. Hello, if anyone could tell me what kind of mushrooms are these that would be great. Thanks Location: Berkshire, UK
  3. Hello, noob here. I found this on a backpacking adventure in mid July (About a week ago) in Central North Carolina. It looks delicious, thought not being an expert, I didn't and probably will not harvest or eat it. I am curious what it is and whether it has an look-a-likes or other things to be concerned with. Again, not going to eat it but I do think it is a shame that I don't know more about what I can and can't eat in the mushroom world, so unless I chicken out, wild mushrooms may be a new adventure. I tried looking it up and it looks to me like something akin to A Chicken of The woods but I have no idea what I am talking about. Also there were a ton of inch tall orange mushrooms I had no idea what were. They were super bright orange-red. Surely they looked like something Snow White would do best to avoid. Any info on the topic would be appreciated. Thank you.
  4. I was recently walking in the woods behind my house when I found these. I live in Downingtown Pennsylvania. The weather has been hot, around eighty or nightly degrees and humid. We’ve had a few heavy rains in the past few days. They were growing on an old stump, presumably oak however it was to old to tell completely. The stems are white with a brown cap and white gills.
  5. So i was in the backyard and touched some mushrooms and then I touched my mouth can anyone Id these and let me know if I should be worried?
  6. I Found these on buffalo dung after two nights of rain. in the stems they are very watery. the whole mushroom is small and thin with no blue bruising.
  7. So each year I find this clump of mushrooms growing here in our yard while I'm mowing. I believe there is dead tree stump under them all.
  8. I know almost nothing about mushrooms and these were in my yard. I was just curious what kind they are.
  9. Hello, I am Olena fom Ontario, Canada. I love foraging for mushrooms, it is in my blood I think. I am very glad to join your forum.
  10. I found this walking a trail and was looking for help iding it, is it edible?
  11. Hi! I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find some Rhodocollybia maculata? I know they like to grow on dead pine trees but I was wondering if they prefer a specific species of pine tree and where they can be found in California. I cannot find much detailed information about them anywhere. I live in Santa Barbara so it would be amazing if I could find some here (although I doubt it ). Any information would be amazing. I am looking to make spore prints of these guys.
  12. I would like to say hi and nice to meet you to everyone that indulges their time and energy in the wonderful mysterious world of mycology and fungi. I am new to mushrooming and must have photographed over 30 species of mushroom this past 3 days and am on a quest to ID them, understand them, and learn their life cycles. I greatly appreciate any help given and am looking to find local or national mushroom groups as well. Happy holidays and Merry mushrooms!!
  13. Hello again y'all! These guys I found are right outside my front door near plants that I grow behind a hedge. A year or so ago I spread primarily oak based shredded wood with leaves and all from a local company all under the hedge in question. This is the second or third round of these guys popping up albeit many other species as well. At first I assumed that they were likely inedible so I didn't take pics before this round. Researching online about FL edibles ran me into the honey mushrooms. Then I realized these look almost like what I saw online. In fact after seeing the honeys online I'm pretty sure over the years I've seen them many times just didn't know and wasn't actively hunting edibles yet. Some observations from the ones in the pics are cinnamon colored lightly darkish brown speckly on the caps. Though I don't have a pic of said spores or a print to show they spored crazy a week or two ago where these now exist but the others have rotted away already. The spores they dropped were super white and powdered the ground all around the previously existing specimens. Definitely pure white like corn starch on the ground around them. The new ones are definitely exactly the same as the last round or two. When picking the one for a gills shot the stem seemed rather fibrous for a mushroom and I believe I read honey mushroom stems are tough. Do I got some good mushies here???
  14. Hello! New guy here looking to get into mushrooming in my area. There's many around right now so seems fit to join and see what I'm finding! Would not eat anything before knowing 100% what species any are but am looking to try my local edible types. I believe I've found some reishi and one edible bolete. I'll make a post for today's finds in the appropriate area though. Looking forward to learning and sharing with y'all! Peace DShroomGuy
  15. Curious if anyone can help identify these. I am a noob and would love to find some truffles and morels, but I found these and believe they are either panaeolus cinctulus or Panaeolina foenisecii. Again this is a new hobby and I could be way off. The prints are nice and the shrooms are in the trash as I doubt they are edible. I also spent $4.99 on an iPhone app that doesn't recognize anything I show it so your help is much appreciated but not the end of my world if nobody replies. Thanks!
  16. I've recently been looking for wild mushrooms and found 3(I had to retreat because of mozzies).The ones on the left I think are prince mushrooms (agaricus Augustus) but I'm not quite sure,I found them next to eachother under a tree (I think it was a pine).Does anyone know for sure?
  17. Hey guys I need help identifying these mushrooms so I know if there edible or not I found them in my back yard I live in south west Missouri if that helps. Thanks!!?
  18. Hey folks, I thought you all might be interested to know that I will be hosting the following free webinars in April. To register, sign up here: http://bit.ly/radmycowebinars SEEING FUNGI April 14 at 6PM Pacific (9PM Eastern) Fungi are everywhere around us, creating and maintaining whole ecological webs. For many, learning to recognize these relationships is one of the most incredible and inspiring aspects of working with the fungal kingdom. In this presentation, Peter will walk through the critical ecological roles that fungi fulfill from the poles to the oceans and from the forests to the deserts. Along the way, Peter will detail how fungal ecologies have influenced the development human cultures throughout time, including a wealth of incredible evidence that he has uncovered on the importance of fungi in the origins and evolution of life. Whether you are new to mycology or well versed in the topic, this talk will leave you overwhelmed with fascination for the incredible fifth kingdom! WORKING WITH FUNGI FOR GLOBAL RESILIENCE April 28 at 6PM Pacific (9PM Eastern) Mycology is proving itself to be a nearly inexhaustible field for innovation. As new discoveries are constantly being made, there seems to be no end to what fungi can offer humans, their communities, and the environments they touch. In this talk, Peter will explore the wide range of ways to cultivate fungi and integrate them into our lives, homes, and landscapes. Along with detailing some of the most appropriate mycotechniques currently being developed, Peter will also unveil unprecedented protocols for accessibly growing edible and medicinal mushrooms as well as new learning opportunities for advancing the future of human-fungal relations.
  19. Hello again fellow mushroom enthusiasts! I recently found two more very interesting mushrooms growing in my backyard in Tennessee! I am very excited about finding out what types of mushrooms these are! MUSHROOM 1: This mushroom's cap measures 14 cm in diameter and the stem is 8 cm long. It was found in soil. --Pictures of this mushroom are labeled "AM" and are the first 4. MUSHROOM 2: This mushroom's cap measures 10 cm in diameter, and it has a 13 cm long stem. It was also found in soil. --Pictures of this mushroom are labeled "Fishy Pepper" and are the last 5. Thanks a lot! ~Shroomguy~
  20. Hello fellow mushroom hunter, I need some helping identifying the following four mushrooms that I found in the Tennessean wild (wetland/forest) in the summer time. Mushroom 1: very small (2-4 cm)white mushroom, grows on decaying wood. Pictures of this mushroom are an attachment labeled as "finger"... Mushroom 2: also small, and grows on decaying wood. lines coming out of center of mushroom. Pictures of this mushroom are an attachment labeled as "white tree"... Please comment if you know what this is! I can supply more information if needed, except I cannot get spore prints. Thanks, shroomguy ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LIVE LOVE SHROOMS...
  21. Hey fellow mushroom enthusiasts! I have two more mushrooms I want help identifying. I have attached them as "brown" (last three) and "white cent" (first three). Both are soil mushrooms found in Tennessee as long as 10-15 cm. Thanks friends, Shroomguy -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LIVE LOVE SHROOMS...
  22. Hi all, I planted some vines in my backyard about 3-4 weeks ago, and have watered them twice (initially, and just yesterday) with a mycorrhizal product called Great White (http://www.plant-success.com/index.php/mycorrhizal-products/great-white-mycorrhizae.html), to help encourage/establish root growth. There used to be a small peach tree near where this vine is now planted. The tree was cut down about 4 or 5 years ago and the trunk (about 3&1/2" dia.) and some roots remain. I've noticed an explosion of mushrooms near that turned up dirt where one of the peach tree roots is, both times I applied the product. I realize that the mycorrhizal I applied to the soil would encourage fungal growth. I just didn't think about the possibility of it encouraging fungal growth on the surface in the form of mushrooms. My questions are: What kind of mushrooms are those? Should I be concerned with those mushrooms near the new grape vines? If so, how should I remove/control their growth? Could that Great White product be the source of the mushrooms? Or, is it simply feeding the spores/mushrooms already present on the old peach tree roots? Thanks! Note: The first three pics are the most recent, taken this morning. First pic is a closeup of the previous round of mushrooms, they are found in the 2nd pic (near bottom) showing both old and new. The bottom two pics are the original mushroom growth noticed about 7-10 days ago after the 1st application of the mycorrhizal product.
  23. I would never have expected that mushrooms would grow on a beach. I would have thought it would be too dry, too windy and too salty. But one of my girlfriends took this photo at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park in Florida last week. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v227/pshermanfl/Kayaking%20photos/Camping/mushrooms111213.jpg At first I thought someone might have put them there as a prank. Maybe they were plastic? But I did some reading and discovered that there are mychorrizal mushrooms that grow on beaches, too, that help the scrubby trees that grow in the dunes. I am sure the mushroom experts here won't be surprised, but I certainly was!
