First subs of the 2011 season!

Recommended Posts

Doopie sp: It's hard to tell on your photos, but it seems to me like you may have some Leratiomyces ceres in among your subs, and you don't want to eat those... Go through each one and check for blue bruising. If it ain't bruised, do not eat.

Then again, it could just be the lighting in your images...

 

Hey Marcel thanks for the tip. I googled Leratiomyces ceres and I recognize that variety, I often see them in similar habitats to where I find shroomies.

I double checked my haul and I am certain I dont have any Leratiomyces ceres in amongst my subs. I have a few old subs that are quite dark, but they definitely stain blue.

Cheers

Took these photos in the blue mountains:

Lots of spots already picked over but it's still good up there.

Went for a bush hunt the other day and took some pics. Not not the best quality, but couldn't get my dodgy old camera to focus without the flash.

Nice pics shroome! Crazy long stipes.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a mushroom growing from the bark of a tree fern.. i've seen mushrooms growing from the crowns too... the old bark just makes good substrate. Nothing mycorrhizal going on.

Cheers guys. Yeah that lil fella was growing from the base of a tree fern, first time ive seen it happen.

Definitely strange looking compared to suburban subs.

Images tomorrow - subs have arrived early. One guy is old and I think he might have pinned in late Feb which is unheard of...

 

Not unheard of in the mountains, you just need to know where and when to look :)

Hey guys, iam down in Tassie for my first sub season and it is crazy how many are growing down here. What i wanted to know if swim took some spores back to qld how hard would it be for him to grow at home?? Any good teks out there swim can read about growing subs?

there's a ripping good thread that some legend posted on creating an outdoor patch. it's here somewhere....just search outdoor woodlovers patch or something.

though your main problem will be getting temperatures cold enough in QLD for them to fruit. for starters, you should keep the stem butts from the shrooms you pick and put them between layers of damp cardboard. the mycellium should grow onto the cardboard and you will be off to a good start.

Ive seen this type before, these type appear to be a different strain of Sub, the ones I come across with this profile are usually more potent than the more common variety...

the patch is in a location that i visit only a couple of times a year. went back a few weeks ago and the mycellium was thick and healthy though was too early in the year to see fruits. i have someone looking after it for me so i'll find out soon if there is any luck. though i'd imagine it won't get to the needed temps until june or so.

That is a WA sub.

Went for a look around my usual spot yest and still nothing what gives? I did happen to see a notice pinned to a tree 'poison has been sprayed : type blackberry' does anyone know if this would affect my yields for this winter? the date on it was 1 month ago. Nice pics to folks.

Gotta love people RIPPING them out, and destroying the mycelium. Good work kiddies - I hope you're friggin' happy. -_-

Stamets writes that mycelium that isn't disturbed dies much quicker than mycelium that gets a reasonable amount of tearing and movement. It motivates the myc to grow and expand with increased vigour. My (somewhat informal) observations seems to back this up.

Where (other than the shroomery) does this idea of cutting rather than tearing get any credence?

eastern europe. i see hoards of eastern europeans hunting for eddibles in the forrest and they each have a small blade in there hand and cut their shrooms free of the myc.

my first season i was picking the biggies and leaving the pins for a later date, but the pins werent surviving. after seeing the europeans i gave it a go with some scissors and now almost 100% of the pins i leave mature.

not to mention youre removing wood from the mycs habitat one handfull at a time.

and tyler the blackberry spray shouldnt affect the shrooms too much as its a foliar spray. i guess there would be a little overspray that may affect the shrooms popping up under the drip line of the blackberry but they wont have blanket sprayed the whole area.
