i've been having a lot of fun lately cloning whatever i find in the wild that catches my eye, even if it isn't edible, psychoactive, or medicinal - i like to think of them as ornamentals, much like plants that are primarily grown just to look nice. so far i've just been cleaning up and growing out mycelium, but eventually i might try my hand at trying to get some of these to fruit.
surely, i can't be the only one who does this? anyone wanna trade notes and cultures?
After some hunting and transferring i managed to get oyster, lionsmane, Lepista nuda, Macrolepiota procera, shaggy mane, Psilocybe azuresence and psilocybe liniformans growing on plates. Love cloning from mushrooms you found yourself Already transferred lionsmane, shaggy mane, Macrolepiota procera and the Psilocybes to rye. The lionsmane and Psilocybes look good, but I'm not so sure about the shaggy mane and Macrolepiota procera. Macrolepiota procera: This one colonized sus fast, and the mycelium seems very thin and easy to fall apart - wouldn't suprise me if this is a contam. Shaggy mane: Looks less like a contam to me, but I'm still unfamiliair with this mushroom (growing it), so I'm not sure if I got what I wanted.
I also used to clone a lot from the supermarket, but finding it yourself is much more fun I recon. What do you have going on agar? and what are you planning on doing with it?
For me, cloning stuff from the wild is what makes this hobby most interesting and gratifying. I've accumulated a decent library of stuff over the years. It's like a little scrapbook of memories. A lot of stuff I haven't gotten around to growing out, but I can't seem to get rid of. Gets insane after awhile:) Wild genetics can also show some amazing vigor and diversity!
