    Well actually you can take from the "wild" but what you would end up doing is digging up around the shroom and taking the whole clump of dirt with you not disturbing it and placing it somewhere that can provide the same climate as where it came from.[/QUOTE]
    yes good point, you could do that... although I fined it unlikely many would adapt to dead root hairs and differ humidity/temps... not to mention, if you don't know what your looking at you could release a parasitic types spoors into your local air, infecting plants and then suddenly, the plants start to die with no visable sign utill you dig in and fined the fungi on them! ahhhh... erm yah...

    Dang Darcie what kinda shrooms do you have where your at?
    They sound deadly... Im picturing in my head a vast wasteland of dead plants killed from parasitic spores.

    Here in Washington we have tons of shrooms since we live in darn near constant rain and I have never heard of that one and believe me Ive known quite a few people to take shrooms home and grow them of course they contain them like in a tank/terrarium to keep the humidity up in a semi dark place. Like anything you woud have to get them to adapt to thier new place gradually such as keeping them outside where they wouldnt go into shock. They realy arent as tempermental as CPs. And unless you dig one up from one state and move it to an entirely different one the climates are the same.

    Im not sure as why they would have dead root hairs if you dig around the shroom in one big dirt clump take the clump and put it into a terrarium Ive done it before and have yet to kill or even realy see a root for that matter you dont expose them at all. Even if they do die they release thier spores and Walla new shrooms apear.

    My suggestion Zack is to get a kit so you dont release the spores into the air or contain them like do your transplanting outside away from your other plants into a closed or semi closed like a fish bowl or one of the terrariums they sell here. That way the spores dont go flying around when its time for them to be released. If you do the transplanting remember to wipe everything down and wash your hands to get all of the spores off.
    Its pretty simple realy

    you have to be very careful with picking mushrooms! i repeat! be very CAREFUL!!!! ive lived in a few states here in the us, and i can tell you shrooms are not something to play with! buy a kit, leave it at that. a lot of mushroom species look alike too. ever touch one and see it disappear under ground? also ever touch one and see a green dust cloud come out? i think not, those clouds are poisonous! they will kill a human! fast!(touching with a 6 foot stick) if you dont know what species your dealing with, please!, dont jepardize your life. thats all i can say, i cant stop you, they are very slick and tricky to say the least.
    follow your desires, even the spur of the moment has its purpose in life!

    Zach,
    Check around your area for a local mushroom enthusiast group. We have a group here that gets together every August for mushroom hunting/sighting. They take around 20 other people (for a fee) with them and teach them which are edible and which aren't and which are edible but taste like wood, etc. After the trip they get together and cook the mushrooms they gathered.

    I think if you stick to certain wild mushrooms that have no lookalike poisonous counterparts (like Morel) and go with someone that EXPLICITLY knows what they are doing then your relatively safe. BUT you are not totally!!!!
    While my wife was going to school in Vermont there were 4 people in the hospital all waiting liver transplants because someone in the group messed up while collecting and the turkey stuffing with wild mushrooms turned out to be toxic. Bear in mind this was a group that had some 20 years experience in collecting wild mushrooms and never had a previous mix up. .... It only takes one mistake one time!

    Personally I think it would be a blast to go out wild mushroom hunting but to look at them/take pictures etc...not eat them.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    CCrider - what kind of mushroom are you talking about, and where did you hear this? Around here (New York) the ones that release clouds of spores (puffballs) are commonly eaten, at least while they are young, before the spores are ripe. As a kid, I always poked them and watched the spores fly out. I don't know of puffballs that are poisonous when eaten, let alone when poked (though I could be wrong).
    I also wouldn't recommend eating mushrooms - especially wild Amanita ssp., they're are too many similar and poisonous species. Many species are VERY hard to distinguish, even for specialists. Also, some people (none here, I hope) occasionally state that if animals or slugs are eating mushrooms, they're edible. Slugs, and even some mammals, can eat mushrooms that would poison humans.
