Posting these a bit late and after a bit of an absence from the site but my outdoor patch of P. serbica that I started from spores fruited again! Much more fruitful than last year. Haven't had a chance to actually try them tho. Busy busy.

Can someone please point me in the direction to the best material in your opinion to learn to grow wood lovers on the topia forum? I’m specifically looking into Ps. Cyanescenes (sp,?) and Allenii, which should be on there way here in the form of a print sometime soon, and I would like to be well read by the time or soon after they arrive. :) thank you!

The beginning of this thread is pretty solid.

I found cyanescens to be very very easy. I stumped up for a spore syringe and a rye spawn bag, then into a big bag of hardwood chips (soaked, from the pet shop), then into the ground.
It takes time, a year or so, and you need a patch of ground, but is oh so easy and trouble free. They're wonderful and beautiful little mushrooms, too!

It’s that time of year, feeding the bambinis! Plenty of rain, so I didn’t even bother soaking the wood chips. I buy these from a pet shop, 10 litres for around eight quid? You can it them bulk for peanuts, but I like these ones are they are nice and clean, unlikely to be as many hitchhikers as bulk outdoor chips, or fresh ones from a tree surgeon.
Ive added a thin layer. They didn’t get anything last year. I think it’s healthier for the organism to run a little lean and encourage them to find nutrients from more diverse sources. I may be wrong about that, though. Also a thinner addition of chips will presumably be more quickly colonised and thus less likely to attract hitchhikers?

I can neither confirm nor deny that these fungi are directly related to each other......

 

It is said around campfires, from time to time, that they may in fact be woodloving kinfolk....

 

Ovoids it is rumored.........eight years apart.......clansman of the Dwarf Tribes

I hope that you all are helping in the making of nice black dirt for Mom (she wants you to grow your food and medicines by the way)...and staying healthy and happy...

 

From PAGE-1 of this thread by waylitjim.....always trust your Jedi's eh...

 

 

Greetings Arathu, good to see you're having fun with woodlovers. Sounds like you've done your research. They take more time then cubensis, but when you consider how a maintained bed can produce for many years, it's well worth the effort.

Your plot in post 1 would benefit from a nutritious casing layer. This will protect the underlying network and force the mycelium upwards, where it can join forces and grow strong in preparation for fruition. I'd use Naturescapes or little chief alder wood chips but coco coir can also work.

 

Woodlovers are great way to do it and might/could very well outlive YOU.....

20200411_0957371.jpg good vibes.  Today a solid block of Cyans to sparse alder chips to avoid the mold that plagues me with deeper chip beds in my environs.  Best of health to all
