It has been a while since I've been here and growing mushrooms!

The other day I found these beautiful big patches of mushrooms nearby, growing on the ground next to a school building. I went back there to get some specimens to try and identify. Found out that they are an edible variety named Hypholoma Capnoides. Took four spore prints.

They are in the Stropharia family so they look a lot like the active mushrooms most of us grow here, with some minor different properties. I took some pictures at home of the specimens I collected.

I wanted to go back and get some more to try them out, but unfortunately they had all collapsed the next day. Might go back in a few days after some more rain, also to make some pictures of the patches.

I have found out that to cultivate these indoors I should follow growing methods used for enoki mushrooms. Looking forward to experiment with this, starting by getting the spores onto agar this week.
