this tek is really great. after some layers the mycelium gets really strong and it gets faster from layer to layer

@prankster: there are also people around here which can't speak german ;)

Thanks everybody :amazed:

I'm not easily impressed, but WOW!
This is a very cool thread, and your passion for woodlo:heart:ers is evident.


I've learned so much from other people's posts, especially your wonderful threads :bow:, that I just wanted to give something back to the community. :heartbeat


@WW, WR & prankster: It's a small world, isn't it? :lol:
WW, you should definitely make a thread about your amazing cyan...

this thread is a jewel!
and i am sorry to be anonymous but...:teeth:

The azurescens patch is rather long and narrow (70x25cm), and it fruits mainly at the edges of the patch - but only in the rear part where it is under a bush.

(patch extends further to the right side)

It's rather crowded there:

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1191774385
I :heart: those rhizomorphs at the base... (btw, do they have a special name?)

From what I've read so far, fruiting at the edges seems to be rather common (this is also more or less the idea behind those boxes with furrows/bumps etc.). So this would suggest that making a outdoor patch in a "zebra" style (long & narrow stripes which are separated by soil) is a good idea. Has someone tried this?
(ok, I will - next year ;) )

This thread is better than TV, junkfood or sex ...

Well maybe not the latter, but its debatable.

Cheers Rhizo

that's correct! the edges of a fungal colony are the only active (growing & fruiting) zones..tipically..while the center is the oldest part, senescence area..

zebra pattern? why not!..but always keep in mind that colonies grow circularly in solid homogenous substrata (and obviously spherically in LC...)..

Ah, this is one of the two theories Wikipedia gives about fairy rings Fairy ring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I don't think that this applies here, because this happens too with beds which were built recently and flush for the first time.

but always keep in mind that colonies grow circularly in solid homogenous substrata (and obviously spherically in LC...)

Additionally, with beds built with several layers after each other, the oldest part is the bottom layer and the youngest the top layer. With layering the growth is predominantly vertical.

My personal theory is, that beside some microclimate issues it is advantageous for the mushroom that spores fall outside the bed, because that area is not already colonized.

Well, I hope the cyan fruits soon so this can be explored futher ;)

Beautiful Rhizoo...!
I agree that the fruiting on the frontier of new growth ,would be the whole patch ,if fresh chips are added in an even layer..The new edge would simply be the surface...

Wow, those are some of the best Azure photos I've seen.
You have a good eye Rhizoo...and an even better hand.
Keep the pics coming :)

Some good Azure porn here too >

Ah, those are nice photos :loveeyes:. My favourite one is the third one from Anno, where you can see the caps opening and the partial veils just breaking... I'm really looking forward to this moment with my azures, I deem this as the most beautiful moment in a mushroom's life :love:

btw, I just noticed something new to me:

http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=64060&stc=1&d=1192230606


This is the same pin you can see in post #35 and in post #49, where a bit of the cap was bitten off. But now, as the cap itself is growing and expanding, this overgrew with new cap tissue, like skin or the the bark of trees does over a wound.
