These mushrooms are so strikingly beautiful... I casually look for them every year but haven't stumbled upon one yet.

Maybe this year I will search them out more actively... Only to photograph and look at tho... I'm not ready to have an intimate relationship with them... yet.

IME what you describe is the best relationship to develop with them. Meditation alone, and especially breath sharing work, in a patch of amanita muscaria has been enlightening for me.

 

They are very beautiful and majestic spirits indeed...........

When I meet mine (growing) I'm going to ask them to ask the others to vouch for me.

Literally a very good idea Cat and IME they also have a funny way of bringing the darkness up into the light (time work methinks)..........sometimes that turns out to be a hard but valuable trail to walk.

IMHO and IME approach with respect, or the first lesson IS how to respect..................  Absolutely............ and there is little mystical at all about that.  :cool: 

 

I wish you well 420 and there is nothing wrong with whatever relationship you develop with them...........plenty of time to meet and greet, chat a while, see if compatibility is there, and if you and they wish to take things further. My advice is that a relationship with a. muscaria taken lightly is pure foolishness............  :meditate:

I have not heard of anyone successfully cultivating these. As Wilde said they are ectomycorrhizal and form a relationship with tree's. They've grown in my yard under the pines every year that I've been here so far....

I would caution you to be very careful when identifying these, as there are deadly poisonous mushrooms that look very similar. The "death cap" mushroom is in the same Genus and looks very similar, among others:

I second that caution statement and also strongly advise research into the effects of 

Muscimol and ibotenic acid

What I your experience would you say the best way to dry, process and store these noble fruits? Asides from drying them on a string. We have an area which seems to produce 1000s every year. I was thinking harvest some and put them away fro rainy day for anyone out there, who is interested.

The best way to dry mushrooms that I've found has been my forced air food dehydrator. Within 8 hours they are cracker crispy dry and then storing them in the large plastic pretzel jugs with screw on lids, a large desiccant pack below and above the dried fruits.

 

The deer have eaten ALL of my amanita's the last two years, from the little emerging pins to adult..........

Amanita muscaria in my dreams last night......oh boy....when they start talking to me like that things get interesting...

 

This year I'm gathering plenty of medicine. I believe they are much more than that but the word medicine (for me and NOT as advice to anyone else) is a good "placeholder"..
