getting a microscope

is much harder than getting the right chemicals. many clubs have access, and even without a club, many people are happy to mail you some. this would be a case for the use of melzer’s, as with most cup fungi.

Danny, I know how to use a microscope from med school days. However, I have no experience with mushrooms. I keep reading that you need Melzer’s reagent and other chemicals that sound like they are difficult to get.
Thanks for your help with MO. I always appreciate your input. Mark
