Thanks for bumping this guys might not have ever seen it.

Any signs of fruiting Myc?

Myc,

Can I ask how you got on with subsequent flushes on this project?

Cheers:)

Subsequent flushes were massive as well.
I estimate that 4 dried pounds of fruitbodies were harvested from the experiment. So each 25lb. block produced about a pound of dried fruit.

I will continue to monitor and post photos - the outdoor beds are quite rampant. Full logs were thrown on top of the bed during the summer season and they've become run-through with mycelium.

Here is a recent photo from a couple of days ago. By next spring, the bed will have been buried under snow for most of the winter.
I think a number of other woodlovers would thrive in this environment as well. Several neighbors would love to have their own patch.
The dream here is to have a valley of each woodlover ;)
Ovoid valley, Cyanofriscosa, Azurescens, Cyanescens - will try Panaeolous as well since nearby pastures support equine livestock.

I'm always happy to share and thanks for your continued interest.

Wow, that's an excellent yield! When you say full logs do you mean a whole trunk?

I have to agree with your friends, I found the taste of the ovoids to be far less foul than other species I have tried to date.

Hi Myc

Are Ovoids really able to colonize solid wood logs, like Shiitake, for example?
Does the mycelium permeate the wood or does it just creep along the log under the bark?


Excellent thread! Thanks for sharing all those wonderful pics! :thumbup:

I'll bring a log home and re-saw it with a band-saw exposing the log in cross-section.

Good question there. It certainly appears as though the mycelium is permeating the logs but a cross-section would tell us more. These 'logs' were - quite literally - destined for the woodstove. They are 3" and 4" in diameter by about 16" in length. Gambel's oak gathered from local natural culture - another good sign that Ovoids could make a natural home of this location. Next trip I'll snag one for study.

Thanks!

It would be great if we could grow that
species on logs; like Shiitake. :)

Thanks also to Buckaroo Bonzai whose knowledge allowed me to learn agar and defeat contaminants prior to spawning. :bow:


this is a severe noob question, but what are the main reason contams are bad, is it that they tend to take over and or kill the desired spawn from growing or are they also toxic, so any shrooms grown in a contaminated media would have a high probability of also being toxic?
