Anyone have any parameters or anything on how to cultivate this bad boy? I found it in the woods next to the path. Took a chubby-ass sporeprint. I really want to grow this bad boy, so can someone help me out? Anyone who points me to the right info can have a partial print or culture :)
The Parasol and Shaggy Parasol are often discovered in grassy patches in forests and along their edges, on hillsides, along paths, in parks and gardens, sometimes under solitary trees. They prefer a somewhat sandy subsoil and adequate moisture.
In the garden, they are likely to flourish in composting areas of either kitchen scraps or lawn clippings. Mix the topmost layer of compost with some peat moss and mix in either cultivated grain spawn or the water and trimmings from last night's Parasol dinner. Cover with leaves to retain moisture.
