Armillaria gallica on agar
    #11814741 - 01/12/10 02:51 PM (9 years, 2 months ago)

I received a wedge of Armillaria  gallica . It really has a very unique growth. Starts off white , then turns a rust brown starting in the middle. One of the more attractive MYC i have grown.
    The thing that i was really amazed about was the rizomorphic growth it sent out. They are just like roots. I was putting away my cultures for storage today and noticed. It sent up 2 "roots" that came through the agar and are almost touching the lid! When i looked at the bottom i noticed dozens of these roots going everywhere from the center. I will post some pix when i get back from work.

I see why this species is so virulent at attacking trees! I will have to make sure this one doesn't make it out to the compost pile after i grow it. I think i will be soaking spent blocks in bleach, then to the trash.

I'd really like to see some pictures of this, Grzyby.

Here are some pictures of Armillaria mellea (sensu lato) on agar, I'm guessing it looks quite similar:

Pasteurizing the spent blocks would probably kill it better

That is some crazy looking mycelium :eek:

Nice. I'm sure it will get much, much better in the coming days. Those tiny roots should turn into huge tentacles, so you will think about locking them someplace where they can't escape, while you sleep at night.

Does the mycelium already glow in the dark?

That is some cool looking mycelium.

Kinda' reminds me of something from a science fiction film.

Can this mushroom be grown indoors? Or does it require living roots of trees?


--------------------
I am looking for the following edible cultures:
  • Chicken of the woods (Laetiporus sulphureus)
  • Wood blewit (Lepista nuda)
  • Cauliflower (Sparassis crispa)

My trade list of available cultures is in my Journal.

It often kills trees, but I have heard that it does not attack trees that are strong and healthy.

For what it's worth, I have seen it fruiting from logs and stumps years after the tree had died.

In my locale, it most often grows on Garry Oaks.

It is famous for black rhizomorphs that look like shoelaces.

Good growing,

Jef

I have seen otherwise....especially around logging area's.
Stamets mentions that also.
Once they get started it can be a bad deal if you have tree's by your house. They really mush up the root system  and the tree will fall.
Its happened to me with Laetipourus

I always discard my Armillaria mellea remnants in a trash can

Those are cool pictures

Logging areas are not strong and healthy ecosystems. Neither is one's yard. Trees in either area are likely to be highly stressed and weakened.

Common lawn grass and trees are great enemies.

Most the ones I see are in national forest.Within 10 miles of logging usually.
I figure lots of stumps promote lots of Honeys....and logging trucks are good for spreading spores pretty much.
I never stopped to consider that the national forest was not a healthy eco system.
I will research that----thanks

Since the thread is already back from the dead; it was PDA or PDYA, made from instant mashed potatoes.
