tiny mushroom advice
    #319434 - 05/17/01 04:22 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)


in my brooklyn loft i have converted a brick wall into a waterfall with a large (50 gallon) basin at the bottom to cvollect the water. atop the basin are large limestone rocks that are completey covered with several species of mosses, liverworts, a couple small ferns, and a rotting log. these specimens were recently rehydrated as the setup was just finished, they were originally taken from private property in the northeast about a year ago. i remember now that one of the moss covered rotting sticks i have was originally collected because it had small mushrooms growing out of it. now, to my delight, the twig has started fruiting again. this evening i will attempt to identify them, but in the mean time, does anyone have any suggestions as to what they might be based on the region and the following description: very small, less than 1cm tall, skinny stalk, opened cap, completely white except at the nipple, slightly yellow/brown.
i know this is not much to go on, but i imagine that the species is common.
can't wait to spore print and perpetuate them elsewere in my miniature forrest scape.
any suggestions as to other very small mushrooms that i could cultivate in this environment?
i'll try to post a picture of the setup soon.

Those little fellas are probably some species of Mycena, or possibly Marasmius. Ones like that are very common here in the PNW forests--sometimes dozens fruit from a single twig or fir cone. Very pretty against the dark green & brown background. See Arora, "Mushrooms demystified," p. 224 ff.
