Not a tub, an outdoor bed.
It's the one which was constructed in my Wood Lover Tek

Nice, jim! What do you have planted with them? Rhododendrons (sp?), some kind of laurel?

Yep, those are Rhododendrons. There's soil mixed in below the roots to keep em healthy. The soil ontop is screened but not pasteurized. This bed would be doing much better, but it was moved about 3 months ago. The process of moving the bed really disrupted the mycelial matrix, so I'm just happy to see some fruits.

I'm not sure, never heard that before. I know sun and fresh air prevents Trich.

Cool waylitjim !

Did you do anything special before the pins came up ?

The bed was watered by hand during the dry months but now that the rains havearrived, there's no need. The bed was built in a shady place, but it gets enough light to initiate pinning. The dimensions are 6 ft x 4 ft and it's about 8 inches deep. This is it's first season fruiting.

Oh, I hope so. I'll be getting a bed together this winter somewhere out in the forest, so I hope I am good to go by next year this time. I actually went looking last weekend for some around here. I found lots of mushrooms growing in the wood chips and in the grasses by the public library and some in the park but no cyans. Among the mushrooms I found, I came across what I think might have been a strophoria of sorts that was so close to a psilo cyan that you'd think it was at first sight. But it didn't stain and the stem wasn't quite the same. I was just happy to find all those mushrooms anyway.

Here's the first mature cyan of the season.
Lots of new pins on the way. :)
