.....unless you find them, or I!, haha. Nice moss around the base of that B. Russelli, I've never found one of those. Yes, timing is VERY important when it comes to collecting these, some say the phases of the moon are directly involved. Next year will be better!!! Vive le Roi!!!
Last year I tried my hand at a little bit of mycology. I lived near a forested park and tried a little bit of mushroom hunting. Never found anything as cool as a boletus. I did find a rather large death cap, which I did not eat. At home I also tried to make shitake, enoki, and oyster Mushroom cultures. I did get all three established although the first two ended up becoming contaminated and had to be junked. And the oyster mushroom culture did end up producing two small mushrooms, thanks to beneficent neglect.

Cool down I tried the taste of a small nibble some 20ty years ago. Not worth it and my liver is still in good shape. I did not swallow it though and spit it out. But I try a lot things I should not, because I have already an age which makes no great difference for the species, if I live on. So don’t try it yourself. The deadly doses for an adult is about a small mushroom (about 50 gr. they say) but serious liver damage will need much less. I see them here quite often. Wonder how to mistake them for other fungi. They are a mycorrhiza species too.
At the moment I have a new favorite mushroom very tasty like the king without maggots too (I found only half a dozen kings this year, the summer was too dry here) . It is a Lepista species this one www.pilzforum.eu/board/thema-lepista-saeva It fruits quite late and I had a meal just now. There is one non edible species, but it has cinnamon spores which show on the stem. The true one has white spores. There are other related edible ones which are not as tasty. They grow even in my garden thats where I took them today. Just now discovered.

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!
