Anyone EVER cultivated Milky caps (Lactarius delicios) at home???
liquidwolf posted a topic in MycologyHi guys i'm wondering if there is any way to cultivate milky caps / Lactarius delicios at home??? From the research and trials i've done it seems like a challenge if not impossible. They are a fantastic edible mushroom and it sucks only having access to them during the on season, plus the competition amongst pickers around my local haunts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! I've tried to gather pine needles and soil from some pine forests known for good seasonal yealds, put in a large plastic pot and then innoculate with spore prints and syringes as well as mycellium gathered from the area. I kept it moist and tried to get the seasonal temp right and give the lot plenty of sunshine. Tried both indoor and out. The results are pretty much this post. Iove these shrooms they are so good i can never get enough! Regards LW.
