well it made me laugh
    #2008891 - 10/14/03 06:20 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I was at my mates house yesterday and he told me he had a shroom growing in his shower and asked me to take a look.
There were 2 shelf like, fleshy, sulphur coloured polypores about the size of half your thumb.
He was quite entertained when i told him they were most likely young specimens of one of the worlds more favoured edibles.
I will try to get a photo and if i see them when they are bigger and im sure they are Laetiporus i will get a culture.
Any thaughts?

What were they growing from? I always found them growing on large stumps and their size was much bigger. Many polypores are yellow when young.
BTW I tried L. sulphureus once and was quite disappointed. :sad: Maybe I need a better recipe.

They are I think only good when they are at the blob stage, really young.
Once the edge of the shelf starts to thin out they lose flavor and become tough. If you find them before they thin out they smell like roses, cut as easily as butter, and have a subtle somewhat sour mushroom taste.

Keep growing.

It was in Nelson.
I couldnt see the actual wood that they were fruiting from. There was a layer of laminated type shit and they were fruiting from under it via cracks.
Are they really that average? Ive never tried them but have read that they are great and in Britians top 10.
