It's not the spores that die at 106F, because thats the thermal death limit of the mycelium. So, no not some kind of freak miracle. Ive stored my spores at high temps for 6 months and still have em work on me.(I wouldn't call this an extreme hardship though)

"... When spores are first released they are fully inflated "moist" cells that can easily germinate. Soon they dehydrate, collapsing at their centers and in this phase they can sit dormant through long periods of dry weather, or severe drought."
(P. Stamets and J.S Chilton,"the mushroom cultivator" 1987,6)

This explains that mushroom spores are 'built' to survive extreme drought, and with the drought, ofcourse lots of heat (and no rain)

I could be wrong ofcourse.


At last you know what ineffable is, and what ecstacy means
