If you pick a mushroom at the base, will it grow back?
    #11168348 - 10/02/09 08:16 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hi,

Sorry if this has been posted before or this is in the wrong section but I've got a question regarding picking wild mushrooms.

An "expert" on mushroom picking said that when picking winter chanterelles you should pinch them at the base with your fingertips so that you don't damage the mushroom below the base/underground, and then they said that if you return in about 10 days the mushroom will have re-grown from that exact spot, where you picked it.

Is this true? As I've never heard this before and find it hard to believe... wouldn't the mushroom just die and another will form elsewhere?


Thanks for any help/advice.

That's a misunderstanding. By "from the exact same spot" he meant in that general spot. Unlike flowers, mushroom fruitbodies don't grow from individual roots, but from an organism inside the substrate (earth, wood, etc.) which is the actual fungus. Instead of from roots it grows from a mycelial network. By picking the mushroom carefully you avoid damaging the mycelial network and new fruit bodies can form from hyphal knots on the mycelium. As long as the mycelium is healthy, the organism has sufficient nutrients and environmental conditions are right it will continue to fruit. These consecutive phases of fruit body formation are called "flushes".
The largest creature on our planet is in fact a mycelial network of Armillaria ostoyae in Eastern Oregon. It's stretched out across an area of 2.4 acres.

Thanks for the help, thats what I was thinking - the mushroom expert on TV was saying that if you pick a winter chanterelle if you come back in 10 days it will have re-grown from the exact one that you picked. I'm not sure why they said that.


Thanks again
