Get outa town. A biolum... er.. glowing mushroom? How cool is that? Why does it glow? Mushrooms don't need pollinators. It can't be a signal to other mushrooms. Last time I looked, shrooms didn't have eyes. That's really good, because I'd be so creeped out otherwise :smile:


Really sorry to answer a question with a question, but what's the evolutionary strategy for producing light?

Did a Google search, and the first page that came up had this to say:

"Panellus stipticus is a basidiomycete which grows on wood and produces fruiting bodies similar to oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus spp.). This is one of the brightest glowing fungi I have cultured on agar, and glows even brighter (especially the fruiting bodies) on wood substrates. The technique I use to grow this species is to make rye-grain spawn by inoculating jars with agar cultures. The grain spawn is then mixed with sterilised hardwood shavings in filter patch bags, to form mycelial block which may then be fruited under the right conditions. Panellus stipticus has been reported in Great Britain, but the British strains apparently do not glow. "

I found a site for spores here:
http://www.sporeworks.com/stipticus.html

it says, "Substrate: variety of woods , grain, and agar formulas " and "the Wood Based MycoBag(TM) available through MycoBag.com. Decently formed fruits are easy to obtain when the substrate material is removed from the bag and placed in a humidity chamber or tent with increased air flow."

Yea, I was just recently thinking of growing that one.  Keep us posted, and if you're successful, give us info and pictures!  (There doesn't appear to be much cultivation info on the strain available anywhere)  :mushroom2:

Should this be in Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms?
