Found this lil cluster at the small college campus up the street from my house in the mulch. Kinda pissed because I’ve looked here before to no avail. Not to mention I discovered some other mulch patches on campus I didn’t know abt. Easily could have twice as much.








Otherwise I got about 42 gs dried. Ok for my first season but I know I’ll do better next year.

Now onto chanterelles, trumpets, CTOW and the elusive caerupiles.

Anyone in SE PA ever have luck finding caerupiles?

Anyone else looking forward to the summer season?

For ps caerulipes: you want to look for birch forest that is mixed with hemlock and nice and wet... they are very small and hard to see... they like slopes and natural wood chips and debris... they often look like they are coming from under the leaves... they vary a bit in how they look but almost all blue at the base... hope this helps...

Does anyone remember a number of years ago someone posted a type collection of an agaricus from a herbarium in Philly(?)? The collection was from the ~1800s and the poster suggested that they might actually be ovoids

I can't remember if it was posted here or somewhere else

This was several years ago and that's all I can really remember

I remembered this from a few years ago, and I typed "Agaricus Philadelphia" in search, and found it being discussed in the 2019 thread

https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/26103247#26103247

I don't recall the details...

Awesome! I did a search but I think I just typed ovoid agaricus and nothing came up.

I believe I originally saw it on facebook then and I think there were more details, and or stuff in the comments of the fb post discussing it further

I have problems getting the myc to spread to other mediums from the cardboard. Hardwood chips are slow, wood pellets haven’t worked. I probably got crazy lucky but I cut off a small piece of myc from a dirty chunk of cardboard. Stuck it in a syringe I had just used and injected a brf jar.
Sterile Ovoid jar have nothing jet. The cardboard one is already looking pretty white.

I’d like to thank everyone for all the Ovoid info every year. It was 20 years ago for me when I found em. I’ve been lurking on the forum for a while now. I usually take a walk every year :grin:

Well yeah it takes a long time to colonize wood. That’s why it takes new substrate a year or two before it will fruit. It’s not like cubes

Cardboard sucks anyway if you have access to stem butts just bury them directly in mulch and skip the cardboard step imo

I did replant a few stem butts, but I only found under 10 mushrooms I forget the exact number but it wasn't very many. So yeah I took one and grew it out on some cardboard so I could have more mycelium to work with. I think people have bad luck with the cardboard because they lack patience and I could easily see just cardboard put directly into woodchips outside quickly drying up and dying before it even gets a chance to spread. I really don't see why taking the mycelium from the cardboard and innoculating pasteurized wood chips in a jar wouldn't work. But then again this is my first time trying this so what do I know. If this fails I'm going to attempt a spore print to agar and hopefully I can keep transferring until clean. Or wait till next season and take some stem tissue and put it on agar.

I’ve just been experimenting with different mixes in tupperware containers. The cardboard I used still had the stem butts with it. I haven’t had much luck but honestly haven’t put in much effort either just messing around. I just buried what I had in some mulch and a small box elder I cut down. Gonna step my game up thought. Made a little still air box and knocked up some brf jars and spawn bags from spores. All from reputable vendors. Still got a jar that’s looking good from the wild ovoid. Might try some agar, if not there’s always next year.

Nice, thats pretty much what im doing, just experimenting and when I got growth on my first cardboard I took a clean sliver of the mycelium and put it to a new piece of cardboard to try to keep it away from the decaying stem butt in an attempt to avoid bacterial growth. To be honest tho for people like us who I'm pretty sure are just attempting outdoor mulch beds,  I don't think we have to worry too much about contam because it appears most of the time the mycelium can easily overcome it while in its natural environment, and also it wouldn't be a bad idea to water where you planted your stem butts so they don't dry out and die from all this heat we've been getting, good luck!

i posted these in the woodlovers cultivation thread. 

Shovel out material from a large, well colonized, fruiting patch.


Prepare new chips by boiling them to soften and leech out sugars and stuff.  They are expensive to use, but I like BBQ chips, specially maple ones.


Select a new area to start a patch.  Boxelder trees, grassy area, easily accessible.  I am trying to make them more common in an area they are only rarely found in the wild.  Clear out a small area.  Put down your spawn without breaking up the clump.  Put your chips on top.




Fill back in the main patch I pulled from.  A grabbed some stuff that blew out of a boxelder tree during a storm and cut it in up small.



I will try and water that patch when I can and feed it more once they chips colonized.  If I am lucky it will fruit next spring year, but more likely in 2 years.  This almost always works as long as the new location I picked is okay.

Looking good! May I ask when you found those and approximately how far up you are the Ohio valley?

Asking because those look similar to what I've found in the far eastern part of my ranging (still W of WVa), but not exactly.

I would guess those were found nearer to SW PA?

Been a good year for ovoids, at least along southern OH, though other stuff hasn't been great (yet, anyway).

Need more time in the woods. Mulch bed ovoids occupied most of my available time all spring.

By this time last year I had accrued at least triple the woods time compared to this year. I had only foraged a few ovoids but plenty of other stock.

This year very little time out, many ovoids, very little other stock.

Probably because last year was the first I really started to focus on fungi. Once I actually found some psychoactive species it sort of monopolized my energies. Trying to get back to balance.

Really I need to eat some more of this year's harvest, because that really does a lot to swing me back to center (with all things, I guess).

Northern panhandle WV. Back in the day we found big ol wavy caps. 3-4” across the cap. Now I don’t see those big ones but I do find a lot that look like my pics. I don’t even eat em these days. I’ve got a couple buddies that do. I just love dicking around in the woods lmao.

Yup, we're rolling in opposite directions with the same attitude: I never really cared about eating them until I got kinda old. I don't have any buddies who are interested anymore; back in the day it was just about getting high and nobody has enough free time for that to be primary.

And mostly it really is about messing around in the woods, finding the connections between everything.

Glad I've found them later in life. I get a hell of a lot more mileage out of their medicine now that life is filled with so many knots to work loose.

Cool how these ovoids' macro characteristics change the further you follow them up the Ohio.

Hope you have a good autumn out there in the deep woods of WVA. Real nice woods out your way.

I'm going to start hunting for them in my area, central WV. Even though it's late. I know I've seen them in the past but never realized what they were anything beyond a random wild mushroom. This year will be my first year hunting for them.

The property I own appears to be the perfect natural habitat for ovoids, if I can keep them up out of the flooded areas. I'm thinking of setting some beds out. Need to find some to make prints first.But I have literally tons of dead and dying box elder. Right beside a large creek.

The issue is it floods, so I have to be careful as I assume flooding is not going to help my mulch beds.
