Prolific Stropharia rugosoannulata
    #1932276 - 09/19/03 02:18 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)



I collected this guy last year on Cape Cod, cultured it, and sent cultures out to various folks. This is one of a number of photos I got back from one grower, who planted it in his garden, and found it fruiting everywhere.

I have offered this to many, and am doing so again, since it really should be grown by everyone who wants any easy and prolific edible.

I have tried Stamets SRA and though it grew, it did so anaemically, and never fruited, while this strain is out of control.

PM me if interested, and let me know also if anyone wants to trade unusual species or strains.

Cool,

We just traded, and I am expecting the Stopharia soon.

I wanted to back you up on the differences between the strains. I have four strains SRA and I just did a small test of each of them to assess their growth and fruiting ability. Three of the strains (one from a Fungi Perfecti) grew very slowly through the straw, perhaps only about an inch from spawn before they contaminated. One of the strains which I isolated from a local fruit that someone found blasted through the staw, and colonized it all within a week. Right now I have it (the straw block) in a plastic plant pot cased with soil and coir, and I have it bagged up to keep the humidity up. I put it out at night for the cool temps and take it in during the day. It has not fruited yet, but the casing layer is fully colonized, so much so that I need to put some material on top of the hypahe. We'll see, but there are really big differences between various strains.

So far I have only tried my strain on alder, which it colonizes rapidly.

Did you just use heat pasteurized straw? I have 10# of alder chips to use in experiments, so I might try straw to see if I can get it to fruit in containers, as opposed to outdoor beds.

Yep pastuerized straw cased with "live" soil and coir. This is the first time I have tried it. I have beds too, but the fucking slugs get everything. The mycelium is thick in the beds though, it looks good. I am moving soon and the new place is going to be scourged of all fucking slugs.

That sucks if you paid dearly for those cultures - im not surprised though - ive heard some bad stories about fungi perfecti - particularly with bad hypholoma capnoides and volvar. cultures.
Great work though with your own wild clone.

Ah yes, we've been round and round with the Stamets thing eh? I have never paid for a pure culture from there, too expensive. I did but a "patch" and I isolated from the wood chips. Indeed, seeing the differences between strains that I have seen know, if I ordered a pure cultured for some one, especially Stamets with his relatively high prices I would be asking for a refund....Off course that is not to say that the slow growing strains that I have would not fruit prolifically, they very well may, they just grow god damn slow and got contaminated. Chances are however that the fruiting would also suck....



I hope I get this puppy to fruit.

Are you still offering this? I know that the post is very old but, I would like a culture if you still offer them.
