Im sure they do. Find elms and cedars but Im afraid the season in almost if not already over. I live on the East side of Texas about 45min away from the La border and they are almost all gone here. Found some 2 days ago and they were to far gone. 80's today.

I am out of town a lot but perhaps someone would like to organize a foraging outing in SW Louisiana through the mycological society in Houston or the guy who takes people on trips South of Fort Polk. I know also some people have been growing various mushroom varieties now, maybe morels could be introduced.

You can buy spores and plant them on eBay or propagate them.
I have propagated tiny dried slivers of bolete mushrooms before but never tried morels. They say you can do it now. It was once thought impossible.

The wetter the ground the less likely you will find a morel. They like well drained soil and I know the further south you get the more boggy it gets. Find the higher dry ground where the elms and oaks grow. Morels like lots of shade. I have been for years now taking morel spores and dropping them in other areas I have yet to find them. I have seen limited success. It may be a 3-5 year thing in those areas so Im watching them for more growth.

Hello new friends,
I am a newbie to mycology. I just started learning about mushrooms over the past year after completing the Acadiana Master Naturalist course. I am finally starting to feel comfortable with the idea of foraging and would love to meet up with others who have more experience. Located in Lafayette.
