I recently isolated some nice cultures from a black morel (Morchella elata) which I found growing next to a path at my girlfriend's house. I left the "cap" on a petri dish overnight and it was cbvered in white spores by the morning. Morchella, like many other Ascomycetes tends to "shoot" its spores from little spore sacs called asci. 69
hey amanita....i have morchella esculenta, angusticeps and conica growing on agar....can we make a culture exchange? the angusticeps i did in jars with charcoal/compost/br.rice....very fast....starts already to build little sclerotia...i wonder if i can fruit them indoors
Upon second inspection it appears the species I found is actually Morchella esculenta on the basis of its size, M. elata being much smaller. It is a very fast growing strain, the hyphae are beautifully branched and grows deep into the agar.
