dont quite know where to post this question....
    #2047259 - 10/27/03 01:55 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Since I'm not sure as to whether or not my question is about hunting OR cultivating, I'll post two.

First:

If I were to find a patch of, say, cyanescens, would I be able to transplant soem mycelium to another location. Like, for instance, a garden mulched with non-cedar mulch?

The definite hnting question:

Is the presence of alot of dead leaves and twigs enough to support mushrooms that grow on dead wood, or are larger amounts such as wood chips necessary?

Please forgive my ignorance.

Wiener

Wiener, try the "Search" function before posting, sometimes it brings up a wealth of information on the subject you want information for.

It depends on the species of mushroom. Mycenas, in particular, are rotters of the smaller bits of wood like leaves, twigs, and pine needles. As far as I've ever seen, Honey Mushrooms won't bother with much less than an entire tree. There are species that seem to thrive on wood in pieces about the size typically used in mulch.

Most habitat descriptions for wood rotters will include something that lets you know what sorts of wood and the form.

Happy mushrooming!

i just recently transplanted a patch from a public park into my backyard....they were ALL pinheads
This particular park is getting picked to death, so i dont feel too bad by digging up only ONE of the patches of pin heads

i water em everyday, i will let you know how these work out

the important thing to remember, is to dig deep, and get as much of the mycellia network as possible....it should be a huge clump of dirt because of how well those networks hold up

peace

Reason for deletion: Suspect / stupid folks like Hughbie Doobie - "Anywho, I reckon it'd be fun to have a big Shroomery hunting entourage some time actually during the season. Anybody else who's game post here, then when we know what's happening, we can do the whole exchange of phone numbers, and finally a time and place for a meeting. "

They need woodchips or branches of Alder. Yes if you picked a patch of pinheads the pinheads will grow but that is about it and next year they usually do not return. Azurescens crops will fruit a few years and also disappear.

....unless you add fresh woodchips each year.

ok... about 80% of the pins are now starting to from noticable caps, still short stemmed, but nonetheless

the other 20% are either slow or are aborts, due to shock from the transplant

i'll let you know how they are in a week
