Default Any mushroom fans on the forum?

I'm curious to see if anyone else shares my passion for hunting wild mushrooms and growing them. I have grown Portobellos, White Buttons, Blue Oysters, Pink Oysters, Criminis, Morels, and attempted truffles (and failed ) I grow all from culture syringes and spores.
I hunt morels every spring and chanterelles in the summer. I enjoy selling my homegrowns to the local supermarket.
And now some pics of my homegrown tasties ~
1 - Pioppino's (Don't know latin name)
2 - Blue oysters (Pleurotus Ostreatus Var. Columbinus)
3 - Blue Oysters (Pleurouts Ostreatus Var. Columbinus)
4 - Portobellos (Agaricus Bisporus)
5 - Portobellos (Agaricus Bisporus)
6 - The biggest white button I have ever grown or seen. (Agaricus Bisporus mutant)

Just had to share my hobby.

Thumbs up Re: Any mushroom fans on the forum?

Those are some neat and tasty looking fungi Do you only grow edible ones to sell or have you tried growing non-edible varieties for the fun of it? Very neat and thanks for sharing!

I am a huge mushroom fan!
Spending a day in the forest picking them, bringing them home to clean them and finally cooking and eating them beats everything
Your cultivated ones look fantastic. I assume you have a huge cellar?

I have grown non-edibles for fun. I have been successful with Galerinas (Very poisonous, one mushroom and you're dead!). Also tried Amanita Muscaria (aka Fly Agaric. It is red or yellow with white warts!). I grew Amanita Muscaria by spreading spores and water around a pine tree in October. They are mycorrhizal, meaning they'll only grow in symbiosis with trees. So uhh, you can't really grow them indoors! I
Eva, what species do you hunt?
And yes, there is actually a room in our basement devoted to fungal experiments and mycoculture.

Some more cultivated mushrooms -
1 and 2 - This was a for-fun project. I injected a stump outdoors with some Hypholoma Capnoides spawn. They fruited beautifully!
3 and 4 - My portobellos. I chopped these up and put them into rice and chicken. Very delicious.
5 - My favorite, Blue Oysters.
Grocery store mushrooms seem to be extremely bland and flavorless. Homegrowns are very flavorful, delicious...after you eat a homegrown mushroom, you'll NEVER buy from the grocery store again!

I have been wanting to know how to grow mushrooms that glow in the dark. I want to feed them to glow spot roaches. It collects in the roach and makes their spots glow in the dark.

I sure am glad that you posted this topic. I was wondering, could you help me identify these mushrooms? We rent2 story house and the black ones started growing first, down out of the ceiling in my 5 yar old daughters room. Since the mushrooms have started growing, i have had pneumonia twice

I've read that marijuana has medical effects on the user but do you guys have any idea what healthy benefits does magic mushroom gives? I've read this article about shroom https://www.trufflemagic.com/blog/ma...rooms-vs-weed/ and it says that it has some benefits too. I dont know if this is entirely true. I want to ask you guys who has some personal experience about this shrooms thing. Thanks to those who will answer!
