Has anybody ever grown the Giant Puffball ?
    #2044501 - 10/26/03 01:07 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hi,

has somebody ever tried to grow the Giant Puffball (Langermannia gigantea) ? This is a huge mushroom that grows in the fields (on compost?) in autumn. Have already found some which where about 15 lbs and they tasted really delicous  :tongue:

I think Mycobag is playing with a possibly mycorrhizal species of puffball at the moment.
I know a guy who tried giants from spore without much luck.
Im going to get a culture from a giant in a month or so. Then i will have a play also.
Ill give you any info i find as i go.
Keep us posted on how you go and ill do the same.
Good luck

this would be an outdoor cultivation i assume? somebody should get spores from these, id personally like to experiment growing them indoors. I thought that the puffballs mycobag was working with were the smaller ones. 15lb's of mushroom goodness sounds like something i would love to try to accomplish.

The whole huge mushroom turns into spores when getting older. PM me and I will send anybody who you wants to grow them some spores.
I am really very interested in getting them cultivated under controlled conditions :wink:
