Growing mushrooms on a Yucca trunk
    #12812751 - 06/27/10 04:47 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I wanted to ask if anyone knew any edible or medicinal mushrooms that can be cultivated on the trunk of a Yucca tree/plant.

I've got a massive Yucca in my garden with multiple thick trunks. One of them's got to go so I'm thinking of trying to inoculate the leftover stump with something useful, if thats possible.

I think I read somewhere that some mushrooms will grow on substrate of Yucca foliage, anyone know what?

If you're not sure what kind of tree I'm talking about here's some pics.


This one should be vertical, but it isn't showing up right - its the trunk.

Im sure the flesh is closer to softwood than hardwood, if that puts you in the right direction, also, certain oysters species will -almost- eat anything you put in front of them, including softwood. That said, it could have something in it that predicates against mycellium growing.

Just my 2c.

I know that dried out yucca stumps are pretty acidic, kinda like pine needles. This would probaly hinder mycellium growth.

Cool, Reishi's nice. I'll look it up in Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms for some info.
Lipa, do you speak from experience? if so whats the best way of innoculating the trunk, dowel pegs or some other method?

Here in Southern California reishi have been seen growing on the bases of them. Woody Cacti too.
