Creating conditions to encourage Amanita to bind with a host

I've only begun using agar for mushroom spore germination and have never tried sprouting pine seeds but... I think I've seen posts from people that have germinated Amanita spores on agar so... If pine seeds were sprouted on something clean, like kitchen paper soaked with pure water (or only the mini...

I know the Bitchute interface isn't as sophisticated as youtube and there's less content there but I hope people understand that it's more important that content like this be reliably available. It's also important t...

Re: Eating it raw.

The single bite she had was a small dose - and it seems that there's a threshold for ibotenic acid below which it's safe (or safer) to consume.

Re: Who will sell me some Amanita?

As if Chile wasn't slow and inefficient enough before the bullshit lockdowns, it took about one week for my order to get from Lithuania to Chile, where it sat at some Santiago airport holding facility for about three weeks before it was delivered to me - I'd actually written it off as another loss t...

Re: Conversion up to 90% or 60% question

Note: I have no direct experience with Amanita... However I wouldn't expect any conversion to take place in the absence of water so the slower the drying process is, the better. If you have accurate scales you could weigh the material (or a particular piece of it) ever hour and track where the weigh...

Re: Who will sell me some Amanita?

Thank you for the recommendation. I just made a small order there - if it's delivered unmolested by Chilean customs I'll go back for more. I'm really looking forward to my first taste of Amanita and later to compare and contrast to what I hope to find growing here next season.

Re: Is this an Amanita muscaria?

I think I see a pattern around the edge of the cap that looks a bit like the lines some coins have on their edges - which is something I think I've seen on pictures of Amanita jacksonii...

Who will sell me some Amanita?

I'm in Chile and Amanita definitely grows locally but I missed the season - again. Send me a PM or ask anything you'd like in this thread.

Re: Amanita Ibotengutake

I'm really intriuged by what you found there. The name makes me think of Ibogaine.
