    What is the most delicious gourmet mushy?

    Sorry I should be more specific. I like buna-shimeji, also known as hypsizygus tessellatus

    Shimeji is my favourite du jour Fresh porcini and perigord truffles are a tie as second

    Efficacy of casing

    Hi, does any one know of scholarly articles on this topic? I am wondering if there are stats that supports casing and justifies its application Alternatively if you have had positive experience with casing I'd be interested to know as well Thanks

    I'd like to purchase cloned plates please.. This way (I think) I can keep in fridge if I seal the plates properly until I'm organised..

    Newbie question - spore prints and life span

    Thanks at0m and SallyD, About refridgerating the spores just so i know what would be the ideal temperature?
  9. I made some spore prints of a few types of mushrooms that were growing in our local park. What's the best way to store them? Can they remain viable as long as they are kept under cool, dry conditions like plant seeds? Also, is it worth while making spore prints for mycorrhizal types like porcini/morels? Thanks in advance.
