Growth Cycle for Azurescens
    #3437675 - 12/02/04 03:32 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Is anyone familiar with the growth cycle of Azures? I have a good feeling that is the key most of us are missing who are growing them indoors. This is what I was thinking... Azures fruit in the fall and drop their spores. This gives the spores a semi-warm / cold enviroment to establish its mycelium network. Then winter and summer comes and goes, and by the next fall, the new mycelium is ready to fruit. So far, I'm sure every one as done a reasonable job of mimicing the Azures outdoor environment indoors. However, I believe that after colonization of whatever substrate you use, the myc would need a cold shock for a week or so to represent its first winter... then placed back in room temperature to represent its summer for another week or so... and then back to the cold environment to initate its fruiting process. In short, I'm suggesting we speed up its growth cycle. I would be curious to know what the myc does in the summer before it fruits. I once preformed a cold shock on a cake of Azure for a few hours, then left it room temp for the next couple days, and it grew a white "pillowy" layer on top of the cake. Maybe this is the summer process for the mushroom, and without having it, the Azures won't grow at all, or take a considerable amount of time to grow. These are just speculations, feel free to offer some input.

The cycle is not necessarily a 2 year cycle, particularly if you spawn outdoor beds in the spring, you can await fruits in the autumn of the same year.

I agree, because in the spring it is still fairly cold (especially in oregon where they are found). Even still, it falls in a cold, warm, cold cycle which I mentioned before. Now if people were putting there cakes in the ground during the summer and still getting fruit in the fall, then I would have to question my earlier assumptions.

I would say fruiting indoors has to do with creating the right kinda enviroment.
I would suggest any trays indoors should have a nice light layer of leaves across the top. I would then suggest misting lightly and sometimes heavily the leaves in the evening or any time prior to the warmer part of the warm/cool cycle. Not to mention a constant flow of air. No fanning a couple times a day will work. It may dry out a lil and the humidity may be very low threw the day. But the misting at night should saturate them enought to be able to soak up enough water that they dont loose to much of there necesarry water content within the substrate. I beleave that esxposed wood chips dont fruit well. Chips on the shaddy sides do. Fruits form in the valleys and small cracks. This is all hypothetical and has not been proven by I.

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

It's all about recreating the habitat...  long slow autumn induce fruiting.  Very little light is needed.  Make sure it's 7500 k.
