There are a few people who have had successful yields with Morels, http://www.agromantar.com/morel.html seems to have accomplished the goal.

I really have a passion for these mushrooms. Before moving to Florida I used to go "mushroom hunting" 3-4 weeks out of the year with my parents. I remember they usually grew near poplar trees, apple lilies and were most common on the side of the hill where the sun rises (if I'm not mistaken). Which makes me believe the subtle come on of light is favorable rather an instanct abundance of light - of course I know nothing so I am probably wrong here :)

I want to at least accomplish a complete and successful grow... For those who have experienced a fried Morel sandwich, Mmmm - you know what I'm talking about. ;) I'd love to see the smile on my mothers face when I show up for Christmas with a pound of mushrooms :D

Now, the reason for the post - where can I find the liquid culture? I can't find it anywhere. Any advice, suggestions? I'm all ears.

If you've never grown mushrooms of any kind before, you can forget about Morchella.

Encouraging them into a patch outdoors is quite feasible , but even that takes some dedication and skills.

I've grown for a while ;) various substrates and casings, various conditions. I think I could pull it off if I tried.

no lie! And I live in a city... there is absolutely no way I can just "throw them outside" + the point of indoor cultivation is being able to grow them year-round. This is my next main goal to accomplish, as soon as I find the culture somewhere :eusa_thin

The thing is have you grown various species ...

Anyhow good luck. Nobody's trying to discourage you. Just being realistic about one of the most difficult mushrooms to "sucessfully" grow indoors.

Here's a link that might help.

I know it is one of the most difficult tasks, and that's why it interests me ;)

That link is verbatim of the link I posted in my first post. But thanks!
