Well I suppose that cubensis patches are flooded in the south during high rain.My question is does anyone know how "flood" resistant the mycelia is? I have a nicely established B+ in my Oregon coast range spot and it is under about 2" of water right now and temps are in the 40's.Anyone care to speculate on it's survival chances(PS it has survived light frost last winter and fruited this summer) This is the first time it has been submerged and I wonder if I should start preparing to start a new bed.I am more experienced with the cold wood lovers and the B+ is an experiment in outdoor culture of cubensis in Oregon.The Azures and Cyans love this weather but I fear my warm blooded B+ may not.Any opinions? Thanx WR :wink:

To old for this place

I just looked at my outdoor bed and found it under water as well. I don't count on mine making it.

I suppose the odds of the mycelium surviving are related to the durration of flooding.

the good news is ,as long as its under water it won't freeze , but the bad news is , it may suffocate from lack of oxigen .
if you can , dig a slot in the ground to drain some of the water off to a lower area .
how long it will last under water depends on a number of factors .
soil composition ,drainage , humus , air pockets , other competition for air in soil , health and stamina of mycelia , yadayadayada .
dont let this scare ya , myceliam is a lot heartyer then the fruit and cubes are among the most hearty of mushrooms (mho)

good luck my friend

i am a botanist , mycology is my hobby .
