Questions about black morels
    #3265241 - 10/22/04 07:04 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

It's almost winter here, and we have cold winters. Should I start an outdoor morel and/or King Stopharia patch now, or wait until spring?

I'm no expert, please keep that in mind, but I would suspect that since the morel is a Spring mushroom (I usually find them from late April to early May) that the time to "plant" them would be now, before Winter hits and the ground freezes.

As far as the Stropharia, I planted those one year in early Spring and had absolutely nothing, until the NEXT Summer and the one after. I was getting huge mushrooms out of that. It was wild.

Thats my 2 cents. I'm sure someone more knowledgable than myself will give you better advice. Best of luck!

In one of my books it says that they start SRA cultures on straw bales in autumn and in spring.
The ones they have started in spring can be harvested in autumn and the ones being started in autumn can be harvested next spring/summer.
Also Stamets describes in his book that he prepares the spawn in winter, inoculates the wood beds in spring and harvests them in autumn.
