Hey g uys can you help me identify this mushroom?
i wanted to pick it up only to find some nigger tearing it apart, he's a big guy and has a flesh-like feel to it.
pic related, GB for size refrence.
forgot pic by mistake forgive me robot overlord
OP FUCK DON'T BEND IT OR BREAK IT. IT'LL RELEASE TOXIC SPORES. THAT'S THE MOST TOXIC TYPE IN NORTH AMERICA. PICK IT UP WITH PAPER AND THROW IT OUTSIDE.
AND WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY.
I'M SERIOUS RIGHT NOW.
>is there anyway for me to save him?
even with the stalk attached mushrooms don't work like that - they have an underground root network (mycelium if you're interested) which is the actual living part
since it's still fresh there will still be spores in the gills. if you press it between two sheets of paper and let it sit for a day or two you'll have a spore print that you could use to grow more of these mushrooms (will have similar genetics to the original) since you want to
>at least regrow it, it's obviously genetically blessed, as it's one of the biggest mushrooms i've ever seen.
you have to be really clean and sterilise everything well with mushrooms though so it depends on whether you think it's worth the hassle
alternatively you could just go outside and find a damp log or some woodchips or something and flick the cap so the spores fall out and hope for the best
lol not anywhere near america so i doubt it's the same speicies, but thanks for the warning.
will try that, placed it on some soil so hopefully it will drop it's spores there and grow or something.
It's an agaricus species.
It is difficult to get specific unless you mention what type of substrate you found it eating / growing on and where you are geographically.
Also different mushrooms like different food (substrate), 99.9% chance that mushroom won't grow out of that dirt you put it in.
i found it in a garden all alone with nothing around it but soil around it and a little patch of grass.
how long should i keep it in there before losing all hope? a month?
if it doesn't grow i may get me a cactus.
thanks a lot mang
>talking to cute girl at new job
>ask about her intrests
>she says "tv,movies,videogames,normiestuff.jpg".
>"oh thats cool ive been really interested in mycology lately I think its so interesting how fungus survives."
>she blankly stares at me and says "okay."
screw you too bitch, Ill be alone with my books if you want to have a real conversation.
There are bio chicks that would love you don't worry anon. Just keep at it, from one aspiring mycologist to another.
Still hard to say as far as specific species goes. I mean keep it in that dirt as long as youd like but perhaps it'd be fun to rip the cap into a few chunks and put a piece of each chunk on to different substrates (eg some wood chips, some rice, that dirt) see what happens.
my biology professor was a qt3.14 and she loved mushrooms, I live near a forest and would always find amanitas and liberty caps and bring them to her. She'd give me the amanitas back but keep the liberty caps.
I wish I had been more talkative because we probably could've tripped mushrooms together :(
grow a peruvian torch, those are ez pz to grow and make you trip. San pedro is fun too, but they take longer to mature, bridgesseli is similar to torch in terms of growing but the trips are weak.
I'm so envious....I would imagine a trip with a professor could get interesting.
I don't blame her either amanitad are gnarly and I only know a few people that actually eat them recreationally or otherwise, liberty caps sound like a good time though. Never managed to find them around here only cyanescens.
See if you can find a pdf of mushrooms demistifyed.
It's meant for north America but many of the species listed can be found in Europe and there's some good identification info in there as well.
I hear all that the rain brings and more is a good one as well.
Bump for interest.
If you guys ever identify with dichotomous keys I've found this image helpful it's from the book mushrooms demistifyed
