stump project
    #4236013 - 05/30/05 10:35 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

hey,

i have some treestumps that i would like try to grow some mushies on. the stumps are from spruces and pine trees (so they are quite resinous).

the problem is that i just dont know of any shrooms that grow on resinous wood.

any suggestions?

they would have to be legal, and preferably quite tasty.

i have never grown any gourmet mushies before, but was thinking that i just grow some LC, drill some holes straight down the stump, inject the LC, and plug the holes.

any suggestions appreciated,

Mz

Try hunting down some Oak or Alder and that might open up a wider variety of options for you.

well... these stumps are rooted to the ground at my summerhouse. i hate them as they are ugly and hellish work to remove (two days for two persons per stump). so i thought i might try to change my perspective on them by turning them into something nice. (which will also help break them down).

soo, i have no alternatives. (im not going to wait for an oaktree to grow in my yard just so i can cut it down and grow shrooms on the stump). :smirk:

there must be some kind of mushie that will grow on them.

I often find Hypholoma capnoides on pine stumps, perhaps also on spruce, but I'm not really sure. I have also read that Pleurotus pulmonarius can grow on softwood.

Personally I would use a solid inoculum instead of liquid. More mycelium per volume, and better contact between the inoculum and the substrate. But maybe both will work just as well.

Sounds like an interesting project, but I still think it would take many, many years for a stump to be broken down... Which is good if you want many flushes.  :wink:

ok, thanks, ill give those a try.

and if they are actually contributing something.... maby i wont hate them as much. and be prepared to wait for a few years.

also it feels more natural to let nature do its thing than digging like a madman for two days, lugging rocks and all that shit.
