Matsutake Cultivation...
    #4388672 - 07/10/05 02:24 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I was watching a cooking program earlier where they were talking about these mushrooms and the outrageous prices that people pay for them. 500$ per mushrooms?!?

What is the story with these and cultivation? Is cultivation outside of nature impossible, as the program seems to be implying? I would think if anyone could do it, it would be someone here....

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

Are you talking about Iron Chef America cause I was watching that sow and they were using white truffles and they said that they were a lot of money but I can't remember how much. Is that the show you were talking about?

I was researching morels and lead to believe from several sites that mycelium can be produced but they have never been fruited, indoor or outdoor. They only seem to fruit in nature.

yeah but the good thing about morels is that they are all over the damn place.

Morels and some mushrooms like Matsutake are michorhizal, their "substrate," per se, consists of a trees root systems. Thats why they'reso expensive, they take a long time to develope a living, working relationship with a tree. Succesful cultivation techniques normally involve simply transplanting a tree that has micorhizal growth in its roots to other trees and letting it spread over time. Even then thats apparently mixed success. Others apparently tried to inoculate tree roots with spores or spawn that didn't take hold.

A lot of this information is in Paul Stamet's Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms.

The sun was pulling cheap shots doing commercial body tricks, Behind the back, Under the leg, I think he even did a headspin, On a crossfader that sounded whack, But looked excellent, All of the sudden it gets dim, The crater face steps in, Puts mexican drumbreaks on the Technics, He's like "Let's begin", He conducted an orchestra so dope the sun started sweatin' him, I guess he'd expected to win on pure artistic merit, Composing complex plays with nothin but soundbytes, Burned out the lights, Made MCs too self conscious quit the master mics, For a thousand nights, It continued without a single slip up, Except once the record skipped, But it kinda sounded cool.
