    Haha nice Manik! They certainly are, jet black spore prints. I was curious if anyone would recognize them. Haven't eaten any yet, many slightly had blueing reaction on the base.

    Hell yeah Seldom, those look awesome, jet black spore prints is what you want. I've tried them a few times, nice and mild. Funny they grow in every US state but no one knows about them.
    I found laughing Jims for the first time last year and scored them again on the same stump just a few weeks back. They are not Jujonious though, but the Luteus species. I'm sure I misspelled both, lol. Awesome Seldom!

    Oh man this is fkn great.

    HH what up fam? So those are some active fungus species one can encounter in the eastern US if one were so inclined.

    Manik Ho Lee Fuk you're making my day. I've been low key obsessing over gyms this season, I haven't seen any but apparently it's a big year for them.

    I'll report back after I eat those pans. Funny thing is they came from new sod laid out at one of my old favorite skate spots. When I drove by and saw them for the first time I knew they weren't foes, which have tricked me many times over.

    We should talk more.

    I've had some really nice experiences with tamps as of late.

    I could talk mycology all day Seldom! Always found Pans on nice green lawns, it's been years since I looked form them though. I've been tricked by foes myself a few times, but the spores don't lie.
    I didn't know what the gyms were when I found them, I was just getting into foraging for edibles, hadn't even messed with actives in years, no interest. After a positive ID they sat in my closet for months until one boring winter night and...they were nice. Actually got me into microdosing which has helped me out, I had to deal with some deaths of family and friends, failed relationships post divorce, and covid stress. Better than Zoloft or Xanax, I can't recommend it for everyone but it was good to go for me.
    Never tried the tamps, only cubes other than pans and gyms.

    For the record... I'm more into the science part of it than the recreational part of it, although I'm not judging anyone who benefits from nature's gifts, be it medicinally, nutritionally or recreationally.

    I'm a novice forager of all kinds of edibles, from wild fruits and nuts, to shrooms, to wild greens. So knowing a bit about about funny fungi just comes with the territory.
