fairy ring mushroom prints
    #1777595 - 08/04/03 09:16 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I have a ton of Marasmiuis oreades growing around my farm . maybe 15 rings or more. so Pm me if you would like a wild print. If I have some time I will clone a few bad boys.-I never have cloned them because they grow like weeds here.

Wow, I'd like to have one.

Would I just grow it out on grain, then bury the substrate in my yard or what?

Interesting...


http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/mar2003.html

Apparently Marasmius species are able to withstand drying out because of a high concentration of trehalose, a type of sugar. The trehalose apparently acts as a xeroprotectant for the fungus, preventing damage as the cells dry out. When water is added back to the mushrooms, the trehalose is digested as the cells take in the water and revive. It has been proven that Marasmius is actually alive, not just swollen up when rehydrated-- it undergoes cellular respiration and can grow and produce new cells after revival. Marasmius fruiting bodies are able to begin producing spores again whenever there is enough water to make spore germination and hyphal growth possible. Thus Marasmius not only increases its surface area for bearing spores by forming gills, it also effectively increases its surface area over time by being able to dry out and revive several times. You can read more about surface area and reproduction starting here.

Mr mushrooms: there is an old recipe thread [possibly in the hunting forum] that didn't make out so well; hopefully one will, as i would like to see yours'

[edit: that didn't sound right. what i meant is that i would love to see your resipes...]


--------------------



Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

That old recipe thread is in this forum, we should bump it
again as its getting damp over here and i could do with a
few new recipes :-)


Do fairy rings grow by starting from one germantion point, eating
all avalible food as they move out from a central point, then fruiting at the outside edge of the mycelial mat?

I had been told that its the spores from one central mushroom
falling into that pattern then fruiting, but i dont exept this.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing; does it create a circle whereby fruiting only takes place at the edge of the expanding network? This would give the impression of a ring.

Also, are the rings of a constant size, or do they vary?

Here is a nice page about the fairy rings :smile:

"The name fairy ring comes from an old folk-tale. People once believed that mushrooms growing in a circle followed the path made by fairies dancing in a ring. Fairy rings are found in open grassy places and in forests.

In grass, the best known fairy ring fungus has the scientific name Marasmius oreades. The body of this fungus, its mycelium, is underground. It grows outward in a circle. As it grows, the mycelium uses up all of the nutrients in the soil, starving the grass. This is the reason a fairy ring has dead grass over the growing edge of the mycelium. Umbrella-shaped fruiting bodies, called mushrooms, spring up from just behind the outer edge of the mycelium.

Large rings are created when the older mycelium in the center finally exhausts the soil nutrients and dies. On the death of the central mycelium, the nutrients are returned to the soil and grass can grow again.

The living edge of the mycelium continues to grow outward. As it grows, it secretes chemicals into the ground ahead. These chemicals break down the organic matter, releasing nutrients so that the mycelium will have food when it reaches this area. For a brief time, the grass at the outer edge of the ring also benefits. The extra nutrients make the grass darker green, taller, and thicker than the rest of the lawn or pasture. This lush grass dies when the mycelium grows under it and steals the nutrients.

Fairy rings made by fungi like Marasmius oreades are called "free" rings. They will continue to grow outward until a barrier is reached. Sometimes the barrier is another fairy ring! Rings can grow into each other's territory and die as each reaches the other's "dead zone."

If there are no barriers, free rings can grow outward at up to 8 inches (20 cm) per year. They can reach a diameter of over 30 feet (10 m). One ring formed in France by the fungus Clitocybe geotropa is almost a half mile (600 m) in diameter. This ring is thought to be 700 years old.

Mycorrhizal fungi, which live in symbiotic partnership with trees, also form fairy rings. Their rings are called "tethered" rings. A tether is like a leash. The fungus and its mycorrhizal partner tree need each other to survive. The mycelium of these fungi always remains joined to the tree's roots. Roots are the "tether" that keeps the fairy rings of mycorrhizal fungi from growing too far from their tree.

And here is a picture of the gills of Marismius oreades. Very common in may june in Australia as well
