Good idea matt. Umm leet me get this straight, you took mycelium from the ground and just put it in a box?cardboard box? and just spray it wiht water? and mushrooms grow? wow!!!Can I do it with cyan mycelium?
You just find big globs of mycelium on the ground, take it home, put it in a box with substrate and mushrooms grow... You just gave me the most insane idea. I live in southern florida. Youd think that I could just instead of going in a cow field all the time, just get an enormous big bag full of cow crap from a field that produces mushrooms, put it in my backyard, in a nice big circle and just pick them from my own private patch instead of tromping around in a field all the time. Right? +nods his head in approval+ That sounds damn good to me. Gonna have a busy day tommorow! Anyways now that Ive trailed off on a tanget, mattso how do you know what species of mushroom mycelium it is that your picking before hand?
GGreat- I ID mushrooms in the fall and return to the scene of the crime in the winter. Identification of some species can be tricky, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly.
Yah, psilocymon, with some species, you can grab some substrate just as the season is coming to a close.... and bring it on home... and get a flush or two in a controlled environment, then take the stuff out to a new place where mushooms haven't been fruiting, and 'plant' it. It'll spread into the woodchips, or soil or shit or whatever the appropriate substrate is and 'with a little luck' will fruit the next season, or the season thereafter... I collected the batch I describe back in December. - I think the little darlings fall asleep for the winter after a couple of real good freezes...
