Omphalotus olearius
    #4336281 - 06/25/05 05:03 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Omphalotus olearius or "jack-o-lantern" mushroom is a bioluminescent mushroom. It grows off of dead wood in the fall, though this is as much as i know of it.

Does anyone have any information pertaining to the cultivation of this mushroom? I have a spore source for it, though i didnt gather it personally. Since it is a wood lover, is it safe to assume that this woodlover would like the same types of wood as other woodlovers?

I've found Jack 'O Lanterns many times, almost always growing from the buried roots of dead trees and stumps. Its hard to ID a dead tree, but I'm sure they were all deciduous hard woods. Likely candidates seem to be oak and maple.

To simulate natural habitat, I would try spores-grain-dowels-logs, then partially bury the logs in garden soil.

The glow from Omphalotus is very weak, requiring almost complete darkness to view. Nonetheless they are beautiful mushrooms. Good luck with your project.
