I recently went back and checked an Indian pipe patch I spotted this summer on the Oregon coast; they're long gone. I'd read that, traditionally, the Indian pipe was an indicator that there would also be an unnamed, apparently edible mychorrhyzal fungus in that spot. Couldn't see any, though it's a real late fungus year and they may not have come up yet..

Our Indian Pipe finished over 2 months ago and is so white it is almost translucent. It grows in forests of fir, hemlock & bigleaf maple. What type of forest did you find these in?
