I'm impressed Trahn. I would love to learn how to grow something.
Bump past the spam.
Trahn do you sell mushrooms or is it a hobby for you? I'm interested in growing oysters.
Pan, just a hobby. Happy Growing!
Trahn008: Thanks for all your sharing on here.
What's the best alternative for getting a jar of Morel mycellium growing on grass seed to carry forward to October?
My intention is to do a "Trad Cotter" style vertically layered trench this Fall/Oct in my back yard to carry forward through winter to next Spring
I originally wanted to have black Morels to try the vertical layered trench this Fall-October. However, I ate my first find (28 perfect blacks) from creek behind the house thinking Id find more. When I did, they were past their prime. Ha!
As luck would have it, I had a tan Morel come up in the back yard, the first since 7 Morels 3 years ago, which were also in the same spot.
I tried using the boiled grass seed and cutting up the Morel cap into little pieces and adding to two jars with the boiled grass seed.
These pics below are today 5-26, 18 days after harvesting, cutting the tan Morel and seeding the boiled grass seed on 5-8.
Again, I want to do the trench in Oct.
What help can you offer? Freeze? Refrigerate? Do a further grow-out?
I also did a spore print into a jar before cutting up the Morel cap as below.
Sorry for the thread hijack. I could not find a generalized growing thread in the PA section.
So I finally got my KIng Strapharia/ wine cap mushroom spawn in and got my bed put together. Layer of clean cardboard. 2-3 inches of soaked oak and poplar saw dust - mostly oak. Sprinkle of spawn . Few inches of straw. Sprinkle of spawn. Layer of straw. Packed down a bit . Good watering. I will water daily for the next couple weeks unless it rains. We'll see what happens in a few months. I will try to update once/if the spawn takes and runs.
Looks good Pickin, I love the smell and look of King MYC. Thick and rope like threads. Happy Growing!
1 month update. Mycelium is 2-3 inches thick in the whole patch. The pulled back straw is just the surface of the growth.
Pinkin, looks good. Happy Growing!
My first garden giant / wine cap mushrooms! Just past 3 months from patch inoculation.
Pickin Congrats! I plugged my logs in March and have been watching for any sign of pinning but nothing yet. The ends of the logs have turned black, which I am attributing to the mycelium taking over the log. Did you force fruiting by soaking in water? Or just happen naturally? Any drawbacks associated with forcing the flush?
I'm having a great morning! My first shiitake ever!
Pickin, Congrats looking good. Notice how those kings are growing at the edges of your patch... Happy Growing!
I see . The low/no nutrient barrier helped with fruiting. Just like with your morels.
