Mycelium thermal death happens around 106f , so I would guess thats
not mycelium thats growing. Might be Endo spores germinated.

Is there a dormant mode if the myc dries out?
Does it make it tougher against heat?

This doesn't surprise me all to much as there are plenty of organisms in the world that can "hibrinate" through some of the worst conditions, I don't see why mushrooms wouldn't be able too.

An example where this might apply to mushrooms is that they decompose materials, well if there were a reason the world needed to get decomposed (such as a massive volcano where lots of lava covered the earth, or other types of natural disasters like a meteor) "New" species of mushrooms would be the first to flourish since they have a lot of new foods to feed off of.

I first heard this information on the discovery channel, I'll see if I can find some reference to it.

Regardless of 'some' organisms.. cubensis can't... or hasn't been thought to be able to survive a pressure cooking.. if it can that's pretty cool and migh
t make for some interesting teks. I look forward to seeing what temperature and time these were pcd - because that might be it right there. Id also like to see this repeated.. just so we can see if it is just a cool fluke or something repeatable - self-innoculating jars?

If this is all correct.

Do you think that because the mycel was dried it could with stand the temps? Maybe the mycel in a dried state can withstand different parameters?
Maybe we could get fahtster to pc one of his old dried popcorn jars, then try and use it and see if his mycel survives.
