Late this summer I really got into exploring for edible mushrooms when I came across a Comb's tooth Hericulium Mushroom. I know I have a very large chance of infection but was doing this as more of an experiment however looking at the culture so far it is looking good (I think). The attached pictures were taken 6 days in and there is a growing layer of cotton (Mycelium) growing over the whole surface.
No real questions as I plan to try Agar next but has anyone tried growing mycelium this way directly from the spores and have any advice?
Step 1: I took some spore prints from my first specimen on a paper towel and put them in a plastic baggy and stored it in a cool dry place. I also had some mushrooms that dried out in my fridge that I incorporated into this experiment as well.
Step 2: I collects some coffee grounds and cardboard and put them into a pot and steamed them for an hour then let it cool.
Step 3: I put down a layer of sub-strait above and then laid the paper towel on top. I also ground up the dried mushrooms and added them to the mixture.
Step 4: Put the culture in a moderatly lit room and have been spraying with water once a day.
