I hunt them along a few creeks and also know a few mulch spots, in the West Virginia area. Does anyone else hunt ovoids? Where at do you find them?
If anyone had some pictures, I think we'd all enjoy seeing those.
The Ovoids are coming!

I have heard of your slurry method working with woodmunchers but have no direct experience..Think Stamets mentions that in his book.. He mixes a bit of molasses
in the slurry for an immediate nutritional boost..
I would still recommend the spawn method for backup..

I was walking around in the eastern panhandle of west virginia earlier today, a place where they don't grow native, and was thinking that all it needed was a couple spores. the conditions were good.
they are slow starting this season it seems, but they will pop as soon as the weather is right.

i l probably find the answer befoer there is a repy, but, is the ovoid edible or hilucenigenic?
What kind of wood mulch do they grow from?

compare them to boomers pics, which are definately ovoid (except for maybe one of them in the first picture). there are major differences...maybe cyans?
What do you think?
junch, they love the alder trees in the wild. love em. they seem to like the Japanese bamboo stuff that grows everywhere
they are native to the Ohio River Valley
I have this nice little (big!) patch i like to call the Mushroom Mine. it is out by some local coal mines. i love that place.:loveeyes:
really, the valley is one giant mushroom patch, you just have to poke around:eusa_danc

All grown on mixed hardwoods but proly , mostly maple..
Here's a couple pix from same patch last season, the wavy cap was from the same batch but matured in warmer drier weather..
