Camouflage Caps

Toadstools are commonly named after their appearance, and the next toadstool we are taking a look at is indeed a perfect match for its name. Camouflage Caps are petite toadstools speckled with green, cream and dark grey spots. No two camouflage patterns are ever identical, making this variety even more intriguing. These toadstools rarely reach more than a half an inch in height. The cap is no larger than a knut, and the stems are extremely thin and delicate. Take care when harvesting, as this type can easily be damaged by even the most gentle of touches.

Toadstools can be tricky little things to find. This particular variety is no exception to that rule. Although knowing where these little treasures prefer to dwell may be of some assistance. Camouflage Caps prefer to grow in hidden spaces. They are commonly found flourishing in dead tree stumps or in the rotting foliage on the forest floor. These often moist and dark places perfectly fit the Camouflage Cap's ideal growing environment.

This toadstool is known for its natural oils. It was once popular for witches and wizards to simply harvest the toadstool and rub the cap directly to their skin, hair or nails. They are now more commonly added as ingredients commonly used in enchanting shampoos and magical moisturizers. The toadstool itself will not feel oily until the skin is crushed, so if you are uncertain of the identity of a found toadstool, you can try crushing it in your palm. If it secretes and oily sour smelling liquid you have indeed found yourself a Camouflage Cap.

It may take quite a bit of searching before you find some of these tiny toadstools, but if you happen to find one, you may be close to uncovering a treasure trove of them. These toadstools prefer to grow in bunches. So look closely when you find one, there will be more close by!
