Amanita Virosa, how would you cultivate?
    #2107776 - 11/14/03 11:22 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)


I'm wondering how would it be possible to cultivate amanitas species.

I agree that there's no real benefits of doing that but is there any infos around here about it?

I know the muscaria is quite impossible to grow indoor but what about the virosa or some other amanitas? Do they all need some kind of symbiosis with trees? I have some admiration for the virosa. Once I get some mycellium from a clone on agar, what would be the best substrate...?

such a dumb ambition but hey, it's my business..

Amanita virosa is a deadly mushroom. A 100 gr. shroom can kill a 70 Kg person. Why do you want to grow toxic mushrooms anyway ?
Some amanitas form micorrizae (sorry if I wrote it wrong, please correct me) with certain trees roots that?s why it?s impossible to grow them indoors (A.muscaria, A. citrina, A.pantherina,...) Maybe you meant A. vitttadinii ?

Just theory so don't laugh.It wants a relationship with a hardwood.Really,it wants an oak.I would buy me a 10 year old Bonzai Oak.I would clean it good with peroxide and plant it in pasteurized soil(from the base of a real big old oak).I would innoculate the roots with the Amanita species you want.In the fall of the year i would go again to the mighty Oak and gather a few samples of soil around the tree.Pasteurize it and then add a sample to distilled water.Spray your soil once a day and i betcha get fruitbodies.The reason to do this is that Amatoxins fetch hugh prices from Chemical extraction companies.Seems like some of these compounds are worth hundreds of thousands dollars per gram.
Oh,and by the way,wear gloves and a mask while you do your yearly pruning.You don't want to amatox yeself

Once the mighty oak,was a nut who held his ground.
