Ya i looked into it more after posting and found that they grow on the roots of trees (oak) and you could get 5 pounds per tree at around 10k-15k that might be worth it. Thanks for the reply

truffles are impossible to cultivate, they must be found in the wild

Pigs were once used to find truffles; however, most truffle-hunters now use specially trained dogs since the pigs ate the truffles upon discovering them.

I wish I could grow some of those truffles, I have read that they taste really good. oh yes and that $3000 a pound is also an incentive. lol

growing them requires massive land, and trees impregnated with the fungus.

It's not like you can grow them in trays. It's more like farming, than growing. If that makes sense. It is also not guaranteed, they are very picky, because 1 person found a landscape that works for him, and was able to successfully do it, does not mean it will be viable for just anyone, you can't do it at home.

Also, there was a company cultivating morels. How many do you know who can do it? food for thought.

the answer lies in the ability to perform many experiments with many different factors tweakable on tap. like, if you were god, maybe. as i have said before, though, there are companies that exist that sell trees inoculated with black truffles (the perigord type, melanosporum, i think). c. lefevre has a company in oregon that supplies these trees, along with a certain amount of consultation on soil types and rainfall patterns and all the factors involved. the inoculation takes place with very young seedlings.
most of the truffles harvested in france and italy are cultivated
there are other truffles that are cultivated. the success rates are low, sort of like the success rates of some cultivators here at the shroomery...so that the methods are similar. do as much as you can, in many different ways, until you have success. OVERKILL IS NECESSARY. there is a lot of free info out there, you just have to look....
the pacnw is not the only place in north america where culinary truffles can be harvested. new species of truffles are discovered more often than many other life forms. largely unexplored stuff. i say try. try. try. if chanterelles will fruit from a pot, why not truffles?

Cordyceps sinensis (Caterpillar mushroom) is even more valuable. They have medicinal value and are hard to fruit. Most extracts and preparations are from liquid culture of the mycelium and not the fruit bodies of the parasitic mycelium grown on insects.

Fuck it, good cubs go for $3000 per pound here, and they are easy a a muthafucka to grow.

If I was gonna cash in growing mushies, I could do it with alot less hassle than that seems to be.
