Trametes versicolor
    #2174664 - 12/13/03 02:30 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

They finally started fruiting! :cool: I inoculated a log with plug spawn in the spring. This medicinal mushroom is quite common in nature and very variable in appearance. I was looking for a nice looking strain for a long time and chose this one that had also red zonations. I'm quite impressed that this feature has been preserved and that it doesn't depend on substrate or growing conditions.

very nice zeronio :laugh:.
i love the way they look, and much more due to the variability.

If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

awesome work zeronio. I actually just found some about a month ago in the southeast while mountain biking. An entire tree had fallen off the trail and it was covered from root to tip with t. versicolor. It was a cool sight but the fact that I had no camera kinda sucked.

nice culture !
What is this species good for ? I have looked up my "mushroom hunting" book but it did not say anything about their medical value in there.
Can you give as a brief description on how you cultivated them ( isolating, spawn, substrate, temperature etc. ) ?

It's a very agressive mushroom that is easy to cultivate. It grows fast and is very contamn resistant, which is a good sign of its antibacterial properties.
I cloned it to agar, transfered to grain and inoculated wood dowels with grain spawn. Log was inoculated in spring and started producing after 6 months. I thought it was dead because we had a very hot summer and 0 rain for several months, but it survived anyway. (Many other species I tried didn't :crazy: ). As you can see it's growin on a very soft wood of Sambucus nigra which is quite unusual wood for mushrooms (except that it's preffered host of Auricularia auricola). In nature you can find it on all kinds of wood.

Turkey tail (Trametes versicolor) contains water soluble polysaccharide PSK, that is effective against tumors. Commercial drug Krestin, that is used as a supplement in regular cancer treatment is derived from it.
My father who had an operation and went trough the chemotherapy is drinking T. versicolor tea regularly for over 1 year. He didn't notice any negative side effects and he's quite OK. No signs of cancer so far.

Here are some of its medicinal properties taken from links below:

Quote:


WESTERN FUNCTIONS: Anti-bacterial; antineoplastic; antioxidant;  anti-tumor; anti-viral; diuretic; immune enhancer; immuno-modulating ; mild tranquilizer; strengthens the physique

TRADITIONAL CHINESE ENERGETIC FUNCTIONS (~ = extrapolated): Dispels damp, reduces phlegm, tonifies Qi, "invigorates the spirit", stops cough.

Can these be grown inside? I've got a spore print taken from the wild 2 years ago.. Thought I might give it a try.What do you think?

Your specimen appears to be Trametes hirsuta or T. occidentalis and not Trametes versicolor. T. versicolor is less hairy with more distinct zonation.

They can be grown inside but they need a lot of time to develop.
It's easier to clone them then to start with spores. 2 years old spores might be difficult to germinate.

This is a very variable mushroom and the T. versicolor is probably a species complex. It's possible that I made a mistake - I will try to examine it in more details.
Here's a good picture of T. versicolor:
http://www.mykoweb.com/CAF/species/Trametes_versicolor.html
It really has more distinct zonations but I rarely saw such beatuful specimens as on the mykoweb page. I'm quite sure it's not Trametes hirsuta since they're white and often become green in age.

I'm not familiar with T. occidentalis. Does it grow in Europe?

You were right! A polypore expert told me that it might be Trametes ochracea.

Eh... shit happens. :grin:

I'm no polypore expert but I do know that Trametes species are very variable in coloration and there are several similar species. Locally (Oregon, USA) I have seen versicolor and what I think is hirsuta (the green coloration only occurs when algae grows on it). T. ochracea seems to be a good match macroscopically. I'd go with that. None of the polypores are known to be toxic and its likely that the specimen you are growing has similar health benefits to versicolor.

hope this is not too offtopic in this thread, but anyway ...
A few days ago I have found some mushies on a wooden stem on the banks of a little river and taken it home. The mushrooms look like a trametes species but I could not find them in my "mushroom hunting" book. Since there are some people with a lot of knowledge about tramets in this thread I wonder if anybody could possibly identify this species ?

Here are the pics:

Maze like pores suggest Daedaleopsis confragosa (blushing bracket) that was once called Trametes rubescens or at least a closely related species.

thanks zeronio :smile:
how did you find this species so fast ?
I never know where to look when I cannot find it in my "mushroom hunting" book.

I know this mushrooms since is quite common here, but I thought that it's Trametes rubescens. After a Google search I found out that it has a new modern name - Daedaleopsis confragosa.
You need more then one book to make good IDs. I have about a dozen but still make mistakes. Even the best books list only around 1000 most common species while the total number of described species is (I think) more then 30000.
I hope I will soon get the best key to European species around (in German). It's not in print anymore and it's quite hard to get.
