Fantastic pictures ! Awesome ...

Was also going to mention a trick I learned off of Waylitjim. I used to pull woodlovers up , as they easily come out but then I noticed they had a "foot". That being a super ryzhomorphic hairy bulbous mass on the bottom of each fruit.

P. Cyans have it , but Friscosa's really show signs of the foot. I'm sure your well aware of this appendage MM ... the reason I mention it is the fact that if you cut your woodlovers fruit with scissors in such a way as to leave the ryhzo-foot in tact , it will refruit. Not from the actual stalk of the last mushroom but from the foot-ball. Pulling these units up can harm the next flush , or at least impair what it could be.

Great job , very inspiring. Carry on.

:dance:

I definitely have noticed this "fluffy foot" on the mushrooms. I'll use scissors. I was planning to anyway since this is how I harvest Morels. I like to cause the least possible disturbance. I'm already noticing primordia forming next to some of the more mature mushrooms! :) It's hard to get a good look at the soil surface under the Coconut husk chips because of the houseplant so I never know how many more are forming.

I cut the first mushroom. It looked fairly mature from the shape of the cap. But when I was actually able to hold it in my hands and look at it, I noticed it hadn't even begun producing spores. The other mushrooms are much larger and look just like the ones in WaylitJim's threads in the vaults. I'm thinking this first mushroom didn't get quite enough water when it was first developing.

What were the fruiting temperatures?

I am sure that I have a Friscosa intruder in my Subaeruginascens bed.

Nighflyer, the living room temperatures were anywhere from 52 degrees F to 65F. The mushrooms keep on coming. They're so beautiful!

I'll check out your thread. :)

i had mushrooms pop up in plants before. twice in the peyote i had before it got attacked by something. i assumed that spores blow around from me drying the shrooms in that room but your situation is really interesting and fortuitous.

This is nuts! Insane! Amazing! More mushrooms are coming up in the houseplant where they fruited last October. So far I can count five. I've had one half of the container covered loosely with press and seal plastic. The soil surface has Coconut husk on it. This is where the mushrooms are forming. The last few weeks have been really cold with blizzards, and very windy weather. Now spring has arrived. The houseplant is on the floor of the office. Maybe the cold weather triggered the fruiting?

I was slacking off and hadn't checked under the plastic for about four or five days. What I've been doing for months now is lifting the plastic and misting several times a week. They must like this!

Nice work. How does the plant look, has it seemed to benefit from this relationship?

Thanks, copelandiaKidd! Mildew, the houseplants seem to do great with the Cyanofriscosas living in the soil. They grow and bloom...they look very healthy. I have it in almost every container plant I have, except for cacti. It even lives with the Datura. I mean, why not? ;)

:lol:
That has been like your best plant ever! Semper Friscosa's...
I would say that companion plant and plant soil mix are about ideal huh?
That, or it's your magic powers ~
I'm good either way! :lol:
