Hello,
I found some small (1”-2”) yellow morels on property I own near the river after a recent rain storm. It is relatively dry here in Wyoming, with no rain in the forecast. I am wondering if it would help them grow bigger if I were to water them with some river water. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have seen people put a clear plastic cup over them at times. Maybe look at the benefits of going that route.
Ok thanks. I’ve been putting river water on them for a couple days now and it hasn’t appeared to hurt them. I’ll try plastic cups with a couple tonight and see if they grow any faster than the rest.

Waste of time. The mycelium is very widespread. You'd need to water or warm the soil over a lare area, possibly as wide as the leaf spread of the tree the morel is associated with.
