Also on doouglas fir and spruce.

Evergreens are the exact opposite of decidous trees. Decidous trees lose their leave in the fall, evergreens are ever green.

good luck

Not pine needles; way too acidic. You want wood. They grow best on fresh alder ar maple chips.

could you change the ph with something else? i might be misunderstanding this, but if they grow underneath trees that lose there needles, shouldnt they be able to grow with the needles? find an organic way of stabilizing the ph. possibly, or am i nuts?

You could raise you PH with an acidic buffer like calcium carbonate, the best place to get some that I have found is Petco, In the reptile section they sell a product by Zoo Med called Vita-Sand which is virtually pure calcium carbonate and comes in a variety of colors. Another source is sold as garden lime and can be found in garden centers, although in my experience aren't so pure as they contain a number of other chemicals. Either way, micro is right, this project is best suited for a more ligneous material (wood).

The don?t naturally grow under spruces or firs.

But they do grow on shredded wood from those 2 species.

Habit & Habitat:
Cespitose to gregarious on deciduous wood-chips and/or in sandy soils rich in
lignicolous debris. Aspect collyboid, generating an extensive, dense and
tenacious mycelial mat, P. azurescens causes the whitening of wood. Fruitings
begin in late September and continue until harsh frost, usually mid-November.

Distribution:
Specimens were first collected on an alluvial plain along the Columbia river
network near Astoria, Oregon in 1979. Fruitings of this species are known
from Oregon and Washington. Holotype: A dried collection of fruitbodies
cultivated on alder (Alnus rubra) wood-chips using the methods described by
Stamets (1993) outdoors, harvested on 11/21/93 and deposited at WTU. Original
clone used for propagation was from Astoria, Oregon on 10/30/79. Additional
collections from Tillamook and Astoria, Oregon in October 1990 were collected
by one of the authors (Jochen Gartz) and deposited in LZ.

You can crumble a colonized cake and place it in the decaying wood of most deciduous trees. The mycelium takes off pretty well as long as the wood doesn't dry out. If you have the place to do this, it's an easy way to grow some happy fruit without dicking with sterile fruiting chambers. The climate is the only thing you really have to worry about.

Thanks for the help. Do you type anything by hand or have you found another way of copying parts of the book ?
