Azurescens on a big piece of wood
    #1042593 - 11/11/02 06:54 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Yesterday I took a piece of (nut-)(wood (70x30cm) drilled all 5-10cm a hole (10mm diameter and about 50cm deep) and fill the holes with colonised wood chips/or colonised grains. The wood is placed in the cellar during winter and in spring i?ll put it oudoors.
  :smirk:Hopefully  :smirk:it will fruit. I?ll take some other kinds of wood to have a comparison. I?ll also try it with psi. cyanescens and psilocybe subaeruginosa.

:confused:Has anybody tried this????
:confused:Do you think it will work????

:laugh:mobyd :laugh: 

Sorry, my english is really bad!

If you like my work, rate me....

Log culture of azurescens?  It seems like there are different classes of lignophiles, those that prefer to colonize the cambrium of a log, the cylinder of tissue just inside the bark, and fruit through the bark itself; and those that propogate and colonize the lignin itself, i.e. chipped logs.  You can push the boundary somewhat, I've seen pictures of cyanescens fruiting off a pinecone, but never from a whole log.  Along the same lines, I've seen poor fruiting of oyster mushrooms from a flat chipped-wood tray, where the whole log would have likely done a lot better [probably more slowly, though].
If you want to give it a shot, keep some of the spawn aside for more 'tried and true' methods.  If getting chipped wood of the appropriate kind is tough [the song I've been singing all year!] it might be worthwhile to find a 'private' pile of discarded chips on someone else's land or a park :smile:
Good luck;

In Stamet's latest edition, if you look, there is a picture of P. azurescens (sp?) mycelium growing quite vigorously over a maple or alder log (3-5 inches in diameter). Now whether it would fruit or not is the question. However, I have a gut a feeling that there are some strains out there would fruit of a log, not all however. If anyone has strains that are capable of this Stamets does.....

Listen! Do you smell something?
