Indoor cold loving species experiment
    #503786 - 12/29/01 02:26 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Ok, just thought I would throw this one out here. I hunted and found three seemingly cold, wood loving species this year. Gymnopolis hybridus, Stropharia auruginosa, and an as of yet unidentified psilocybe. I have been experimenting with growing the mycelium indoors with moderate to good success. So far the unidentified psilocybe strain seems to be growing the best, followed by the Stropharia. I collected the mycelium along with the mushrooms when I hunted them. I say they are cold lovers because they were found near the end of the season, and we had a couple of frosts, and even a light dusting of snow...which melted...before and during the time I discovered them. I have them all growing in clear plastic containers, on mixed woodchips and cardboard. In one of the conainers I had some contamination, but that is no longer the case after careful removal of infected substrate and a squirt or two of water diluted H2o2. That one is the stropharia and is now showing rigorous mycelium growth including rizomorphic stages. In one of the tubs I had excellent mycelium growth, which has now come to a standstill. This is the same for another of the containers as well. So out of 6 containers I have three that have stopped growing, and three that are really growing well, including colonization of cardboard. Sorry for the novel, but I was wondering if maybe I need to cold shock them into growing again, seeing as they were found in slightly cool weather. I also want to say that I am not trying to fruit them at this point, just to get full colonization. Other details that might help: the humidity is fairly high, when they get a little drier I give them a quick mist, they are kept in a dark drawer, and the temperature is around 20-23 degrees celcius, and I open the lids occasionaly to let in some fresh air. This is just an experiment, before I attempt to grow some other wood loving species indoors...plus I would be very pleased if I could get the unidentified psilocybe to fruit, in which case I may be able to get it identified.

So if anyone else here has some ideas, it would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Nobody has any ideas? Anno what about you? If I am not mistaken you have had success growing cold species indoors. Would really appreciate the input. Cheers
