sulphur shelf life
    #2449352 - 03/18/04 11:28 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I recently purchased some Laetiporus sulphureus dowels that (along with several other species) I've been hammering into logs. I was reading a couple of articles on them today and one said that the organism can live in live wood up to 50 years before gaining the ability to fruit. Obviously I'm looking for a little less than that number.

Anyone have any experience with how fast this organism can colonize dead logs, or even wood substrate of some sort?

I also read a snippet that said if you let the conk grow for a bit, then harvest only the newest growth, that outer edge will regrow shortly. Anyone with experience picking this stuff in the wild able to confirm that? TIA for both.

It colonizes grain and sawdust/wood chips very fast. The mycellium is powdery and it flys around in the air stream of flow hood - that makes it a fast colonizerd if you shake the jars frequently.
But I don't know how long it takes to make it fruit...

I also heard that from different sources, but I didn't try it yet.
