Mycorrhizals with flowers?
    #11234462 - 10/12/09 07:11 PM (8 years, 9 days ago)

I'm growing some different flowers indoors to bring some life into my rooms, add some decoration, and keep oxygen levels nice and high for me. I was recently thinking my pots would look neat with maybe some mushrooms and grass or something along those lines.

I am currently growing some morning glories in a small pot, either to keep as a short vine with lots of trimming, or possibly use some fishing line as a trellis to guide them around my window...not sure yet. Anyways, I know they grow very fast, but I'd like to find some mushrooms I could also easily add to the pot (even a common lawn mushroom) for looks and to help with growth. Are there any that would be good for this? Or at the very least not be parasitic on the plant?

I know this isn't mycologically related, but would it be possible also to sow some grass in this pot as well? I'd like to think of this as more art project than anything.

lol, just think for one second about this and you will answer your own question.  Plants need nutrients from the soil, mushrooms need nutrients from the soil, grass needs nutrients from the soil.

Leucocoprinus birnbaumii is often found in potted plants. I've never heard of anybody cultivating it, but you sure could.
Another choice might be Panellus stipticus- you could plant plug spawn down inside the soil, maybe.

What if you were to try to grow the shrooms in jars beneath the soil, just so they come up to the top? Basically so the shrooms don't use the plants nutrients. Idk it's just an idea I've had before. Sort of like growing in vitro but you'd have to work it out.

I had thought about using a cake, and just plop it in the dirt.. Just like burying one outdoors. It just uses the sub material until it goes away. Or another thought was to supplement the soil with manure, bury the cake, maybe it will spread some, and just feed the plant some organic compost tea when it gets watered.. I might try this.

That's not truly "Mycorrhizal" as asked by the OP though..

I like both those ideas. I was picturing smaller plants, but if you could use a bigger pot, you could bury a slightly bigger jar or basin or something, and then be able to remove the spent cake without disrupting the plant. Then you can grow more mushrooms when you want to.

Plants and fungi in a mycorrhizal relationship are both good for each other: fungi need the sugars that the plant makes through photosynthesis, and plants need the nutrients that the fungi make more readily available to them. In fact, mycelium generally is very helpful for a number of plants.

I thought of it further though, and talked to my biology prof (who is a botanist), and it probably isn't the best choice and I should have thought it through a little better: being indoors, my plant doesn't get an optimal amount of sunlight (window orientation, all that), the fungi take the same portion of sugars and cycle in the same nutrients as needed, but the plant gets even less of its own sugars, so if total available decreases, there is less to either just the plant or both the fungus and the plant (depending on where sugars and nutrients are transported first, etc....that would be a fun experiment were I a botanist), meaning poorer growth. A slow-release fertilizer is plenty for an indoor plant.

However, this doesn't solve the aesthetic problem: I want little mushrooms growing out of my pot!

Awesome ideas! I just can't find half-pint jars...I'm not looking to do this with psilocybes, just whatever kind of mushroom would grow, since it's mostly for aesthetic reasons. I think releasing them (burying a cake in the soil), were they a mycorrhizal fungus (with my plant), would allow that relationship to form were the mycelium and root system to meet

Probably easiest to start with cubes, though.

I have done this (from lawn patch seed), the trick is to keep it short and never let it get dehydrated. I made this little scene with little plants from around the yard and verm.. that pot is about 8" around

Holy crap is that a uhhhh cant think of the name of it.  the plant thats on the little log.  i have seen people bonsai those in a boddle cap. they just took a cutting and placed it in the cap, dont know how they got it to stay alive though.

It's a little air plant.. my father in law has a yard full of live oaks covered in air-plants. When he trims branches, you will get like a 100 of those dime sized baby ones on a branch. I mist that one.. they like high humidity and dew drops.
