    Mushroom culture confusion

    I run forest fungi. Making petris takes time and effort, and maintaining a culture bank can be tricky. I give students 50% off, and usually give multiple petris. I also only sell cultures that I have tested. Overseas some of these cultures are $400+. I regularly trade cultures. I have a bank of 20 plus cultures, but only grow a few species for myself and chefs. If someone wants a rarely used culture, I have to make a batch of petris, inoculate them, incubate them, and then choose the best ones to post. All my cultures I send are fresh, not frozen. I used to do it for free, as do others here (watertrade got me started), but I can't afford to be a charity, so I charge enough to make it worth my while. I also don't place restrictions on what you do with my cultures...others have bought my cultures, then started selling them with restrictions on what you can do with them, and renaming them as fictitious species...

    Burgundy caps

    Sure...there's a bit of a write up from last year here...https://forestfungi.com.au/blogs/forest-fungi/king-stropharia-a-great-mushroom-for-the-garden But these pics are from soaked eucy woodchips (a week or so), with added grain spawn. Made this time last year, started fruiting a bit over a month ago.

    some Stropharia rugosoannulata popping up in my garden. Took a few years to get them established, now they're everywhere.

    Pleurotus nebrodensis

    Hi Tripsis, well it could be! I had a few ferulae and nebrodensis petris, made a few jars of spawn, then fruiting bags, then by the time they fruited, which took about 1 year, I couldn't see any label...cloned some, and going gangbusters ever since. I had 2 slightly different fruiting forms-1 made giant, long lasting fruits, the other much smaller, but still very similar morphology. They both love calcium and cold...they could even be the same species. I hunted around for info., very little available. Very different to eryngii in taste, texture and morphology. Thanks again for the cultures way back when. Let me know if you ever want any.

    Pleurotus nebrodensis

    I've been having lots of luck growing these critically endangered mushies. They're delicious, meaty, and last for ages compared to most oysters. I've got a bunch of cultures to trade...also have 2 pinks, gold, grey, white, sajo-cajur and king oysters, an amazing pioppino strain, nameko... Keen on other cultures and/or interesting seeds.
  7. Thanks for nothing, failed trade

    Sourcing Sustainable Euc Logs

    Haha, I love those hospital beds, scored a couple from Huonville tip shop-$10 each. A week later in Margate tip, they tried selling them for $115 each! Great for lifting and shifting heavy loads. Dowels don't have spores, well, not until they produce mushrooms. Tell your flat mate to stop breathing if they want to avoid spores.
  9. What's up Tom?

  10. Hey mimzy, did you ever post cultures? Never got them.

    Cheers,
