is it possible to transplant a peice of grass with a small patch of shrooms from one spot to another spot, in the same climate? im wondering this because i know of a spot in my town with "bluebells" and lots of them, and i want to transplant a peice of that grass with the shrooms to my own backyard. possible to do succesfully?

i dont know, but it sounds good to me

this is often done. it is not usually possible to transplant to indoors for any length of time. when transplanting, it is also advisable to add a little food of the type they are allready feeding on. in this case some straw or dry grass stalks, perhaps chopped up. i have successfully transplanted several species of wild mushroom in the way described.

note. please do not use common names of mushrooms, as they are readily confused.

second note, take lots of your transplant colony, and leave some along with more food in the hole, so that the mushroom gods be pleased, and more will continue to grow in that site.

i dont know if its possible but if i were to try it i'd make sure to dig a good amount of the surrounding soil to make sure you get a good amount of the mycelium and also, if mycelium is growing in that soil, it can grow more in that soil (theoretically). and yes when you "plant" it, make sure theres lots of nutrients in the soil. you might want to put a bunch of BRF or something in.

Why destroy a natural patch and accept the (very, very large) risk that the transplanted patch won't survive? I'd create an outdoor patch with homegrown cyanescens or start growing cubensis indoors. By far a larger chance of success and you don't need to destory one of nature's own patches.

listen to koraks, as aside from the point about common names, his was the only advice worth taking in this thread.

I second Con retes advice.

However,m a word of caution, only about 2-3 out of a possible 10 transplants of P. cuyanescens work. P. zurescens on the other hand has successful transplants for two to three years and then they fade away.

the best reason to transplant a part of a natural patch is to assure the survival of the desired mushroom. if it is a cyan patch, then there is an extreamly low probability that it is a "wild" natural patch. extreamly low. yet cyans in the northwest and BC tend to take to transplanting very well with little human intervention other than an annual resupply of food in the spring, and perhaps some water during the summer dry spell.

cyans like wood and paper, like bits of cardboard, axe-chopped alder or weathered douglas fir. if you place wood chips into the donor patch, and cover with a thin layer of whatever dirt is there, the risk to the parent patch is acceptable. success rates on transplanting are near perfect in your locale, not the low rate stated above.

stamet's books have detailed instructions.

the fact remains that it is more reliable and of lower impact to take a small tissue sample and culture it, inoculate spawn, and use that to inoculate a new patch.
