glowing shot

I’ve never got the glowing shot, but I have found that I needed to collect multiple fresh samples from several trees (usually alder). 1 out of 5 hit right. I also found that they would glow a second time when rehydrated.

What was key was being in a room that was absolutely dark and making sure to adapt my eyes to the dark for at least 10 minutes. I have a walkin closet in my master bedroom bathroom so its like a double door dark room, but I still check them after sunset, so my eyes are better dark adapted. I also will go into the closet with the mushrooms and sit for 10 minutes with my eyes closed., checking every 2-3 minutes.

If I hold them between my fingers them around a bit that’s when I know I’m not staring at afterimages of light on the inside of my eyelids. you can actually start to see the details of the glowing gills.

Not yet.

No unfortunately I found the mushroom in the day time. I will be going back to the location to get a glowing shot of them sometime soon.

have you seen this one glow?
