Aesthetically pleasing saprophytes
    #4515670 - 08/09/05 09:48 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I'm thinking about experimenting with attractive and/or colorful mushrooms that can be grown indoors. I would think that would limit my search to saprophytes that are not dependent on other living species to complete thier life cycle.


Any species come to mind?

Russula emetica, if you cam get the really bright red ones,
Entaloma nitidum, but those only grow in Eurasia

I always thought ganoderma lucidium would be an interesting mushroom to grow, they have a rather exotic color, last a while, and have some medicinal use.

" Another method geared towards indoor, environmentally controlled production focuses on rapid cycled crops. With this method a combination of hardwood sawdust and woodchips is the growing media, as opposed to logs. Colonized jars of Reishi mycelium (spawn) growing on rye grain or hardwood sawdust are used to inoculate sterilized bags of the sawdust/woodchip mixture. The bags are sealed and allowed to incubate. The bags have a special filter that allows for gas exchange while screening out possible fungal or bacterial contaminants. After the proper amount of time has passed for incubation the bags are opened or removed and the environment is manipulated to initiate fruit body formation. With this method you can have two crops in 90-120 days. The growing popularity of alternative medicines, and pursuit of cultivation in North America and Asian countries has increased the availability of Reishi mushrooms and products in the U.S. as well as Asia, making them an economically important crop."

This exert is from Dylan Kosma found here.

I'm not sure how well it would work, but there ya go.

Reishi is a good choice,

Lions Mane is another idea.

Why Lion's Mane?

I was thinking along the lines of not-previously-cultivated species.

I've had my eye on Reishi for a while already. I think I'll be playing with that one soon.


I wonder if other Ganoderma can be cultivated similarly, like the Artist's conch, perhaps.


I've got that mushroom book with the crazy trumbone man somewhere around here.

How about Trametes versicolor? it's been cultivated before, but they look pretty cool.


maybe leucocoprinus birnbaumii too, they must be easy to culture. they pop up in potting soil all the time. they're poisonous I think though, so they probably wouldn't be the best idea.

I dont know the name of it, but I think it's related to the "witch-hat" and it has yellow, red, green and blue colors. That would be interesting. But what would be most pleasing is a mixture of all the beautiful mushrooms. Like a Marley and and Mycelium Factory or somethin'. Psilocybe Cyanescens sure are pretty, too. But I guess you probably want to keep it legal.

Another poisonous aesthetically pleasing mushroom would be a Jack O'Lantern.

There are other bright orange species of Mycena that are neither poisonous nor edible.

Chicken mushrooms are pretty.

Namekos are very pretty and edible.

Enokis are attractive, but require extremely cold temperatures. Too cold to be grown someplace where humans also live.


Russulas are Russulales. All of them, including Lactarius are mycorrhizal.

I think i know which Mycenia your talking about, it's a complex of small species. They look kind of like chanterelles. Some red chantys would light up any room, but they've never been successfully cultivated as far as i know.
