    Recently moved down to Brevard county Florida, wife has been bugging me for years so we decided to go for it. What kills me the most is not having any spots right now. After learning the hardwood forests of the Northeast this is a completely different ballgame.

    I've heard chants and trumpets grow down here. As well as chickens, blewitts and hedghogs. Just a matter of learning their preferred habitat here. The thing that throws me off is when the different varieties fruit. As soon as I mention the word mushroom here people automatically assume I'm looking for cubensis which is kind of frustrating.

    Hopefully I can find something decent soon.

    Don't think you'll find any Morels down there. I have many friends that live there, ( mostly in the Keys ) and they have never seen a Morel. There are some nice Red Chanterelles that grow there. I'll see if I can find out what kind of trees they're around. These Red chants are not Cantharellus cinnabarinus.
