Out Door Cordyceps Patches
    #1280891 - 02/05/03 08:57 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I heard that cordyceps liked to fruit at 14,000 to 16,000 feet above sea level. My question is has any one tried to grow an outdoor patch? Say taken some spawn to this altitude and tried to fruit it. I would be willing to try, I live in Colorado and we have 14,000 foot mountains.

Please do try, the altitude couldn't hurt much.  You have to address a couple of major things.  One, the genetic stage that the cordyceps culture is at. . .if the culture was taken from a fruitbody for example.  It may need to go through a separate life cycle before it can fruit again [thus starting from spores would be optimal].  I don't know if it is known that this is the case, however.
The second issue is one of substrate.  Silkworms are the choice for 'artificial' culture in China, the level of host specificity is questionable.  One Canadian grower of Cordyceps fruitbodies [likely militaris or ophioglossoides] uses a formulated substrate for fruiting, no intact insects. 
The industry as it stands [FP included] appears happy doing mycelial extractions for the active Cordyceps components.  *boring* :smile:
There are links in the other cordyceps thread that might shed some light on potential initiating conditions;  One link implied that the colonized insects are exposed to sclerotia-inducing-type conditions before fruiting.
