most mushrooms are mycorrhizal in nature.  so then most edibles are going to be mycorrhizal.  so this being said, i think that a subforum of hunting for specific tree types is needed for this section.  just so this post is not totaly worthless, could anyone tell me the specific trees that oyster mushrooms grow on?  THANKS!!! :grin:

Oysters aren't mycorrhizal.


Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters. -- RR

mycorrhizal grow on/with tree roots some trees grow better with a mushroom partner.You can find them very far from the parent tree as long as the roots go that far.
However oysters are more of a parasite and decomposer and are bad news for a tree.
Oysters prefer hardwoods such as Elm Adler Cottonwood and Sycamore(less often on conifers and oak around here).
Either on standing live trees,fallen logs stumps or wood debris.
If you find a decent log just drag it home and keep it somewhere cool and moist in the yard...it will fruit for years to come.
Don't confuse it with a jack o lantern mushroom!(you'll get sick)
I find the most important way to recognise them is just the smell,I also visit the same stump(Elm)year after year.I can see it from the car on the way to work and if it's fruiting I get them on the way home for dinner.I also know when the other stumps and logs are fruiting because of it and usually go for a hunt after I find them on the "way to work" stump.
