I found this in a lawn at the flats I manage, North england. I know its a bolete but im not sure the genus. The pores are pale yellowish with a rusty staining. Also, the cap should be a perfect dome but this one was damaged.

more fomitopsis pinocola on that tree
the armillaria trees to run up the trunk and quickly lay claim to as much of the tasty wood as it can when the tree dies, but since it has to spread up from the bottom it usually only gets the first 10-15 feet of the tree and all above that the decay is dominated by fomitopsis that can just land anywhere by spores and start growing

Plenty of insects will live off of Amanita phalloides. Doesn’t mean you can.

Can anyone ID this bolete? I’ve seen plenty of them today, growing near pines. The cap is the same color as the stem but turns cream near the edges. The sponge blues after some minutes, the meat remains white.

>>2248182
Alright it doesn’t blue that much, but the smell is really off putting, kinda like paint.
I have heated the meat and it turned dark pink. I’m doubting this is a boletus now, although the sponge means it is (?) and it’s not growing on wood.

Thanks.

I upload 2 pictures of the surrounding mushrooms. There were many of them together. They were quite big. It is in Spain. I have read that there are other similar species to white amanitas like Lepiota helveola, Macrolepiota procera, Lepiota brunneoincarnata. They look similar in google images to what I am showing.

I guess animals did not ate them because they know they are poisonous (there are many wildboars, foxes, etc., in the area).

>>2251846
That's what I was thinking. So far from what I've read it seems like a good one to start with. Do you know how many harvests you can pull from a single monotub batch before you need to start a new one? Another q: how do you feel about growing shitake, reishi, crimini mushrooms... have you tried any of those indoors before?

Depends on various factors including substrate and how well hydrated you keep it, but on average you're probably looking at maybe 3 good flushes and maybe a few crappy ones after that. Honestly after the third flush it usually makes more sense to break the block up to use to start new tubs.

I've done shiitake, it's pickier than oysters, people do occasionally get successful fruiting on cardboard but it seems to be stain dependant, for indoor cultivation your best bet is bags of saw dust.

I've got a batch of reishi LC I won in a contest a few weeks ago so I'll be growing it soon but I haven't before. Never done Crimini. Currently I'm testing different cultures of Chicken of the Woods I've collected this year to see if I can't induce any of them to fruit inside.

>various factors including substrate
I was wondering about that. I've heard that some substrates contaminate quicker than others so I guess I'll have to see which subs are more forgiving and less headache.
>break the blocks up to use to start new tubs
Like break up the substrate after you got your flushes and use the spent substrate to make a new tub?
>reishi LC
Are you going to spawn those in bags or in monos? For me I want to grow all of mine in monos just because I don't have the space to set up a tent/fruiting chamber and I also like the convenience of being able to clean/reuse the tubs + being able to stack them on top of each other

Basically my goal is to grow enough mushrooms that I can eat everyday all year round, and also have a good amount left over to give to family and friends. I'd like to have a decent variety of them too. So far ive seen oysters, reishi and cordyceps grow in monos, so I'm just trying to see what others I can add to my soon to be indoor mush garden
>>
>>2252269
Yeah basically you'd use spent substrate as your spawn, of course after awhile senescence is reached but you can go for awhile like this.

I'm gonna do it in bags but I have a shit ton of space, I can understand your desire for monotubs.

As for substrate contamination, cardboard and wood are the most contamination resistant in my experience, straw and coir both seem somewhat more prone however straw is nice because you can cold pasteurize it with lime, bleach, or wood ash.
>>
>>2246647
most wood loving fungi are safe
>>
>>2246647
Definitely some variety of oyster
>>
>>2252329
Damn that's awesome, I didn't know you could reuse the substrate. Is that only for oysters? I didn't know that about the cold pasteurizing thing either, thanks for the tip, I'll have to look into that
>>
>>2252673
In theory you could reuse the sub to start new bins with almost anything but in practice it only works well with species that are able to outgrow and beat the shit out of contaminants. However a variation of this method is regularly used by magic mushroom growers by digging a hole, throwing in some manure, then they break up their sub, toss it in, and cover with more manure before wetting it all down. Although there's a lot more contam vectors outside, there's also a lot more things to counter and control it, so it often will give several more flushes. Also wine cap growers frequently do the same things but entirely outside as wine cap hasn't been fruited very consistently inside.

said omelette, dice some garlic, a shallot, and a bit of parsley fry in a bit of butter, when it's brown, put the mushrooms over, in a separate bowl beat the eggs & season them (don't add salt yet !!!), once the mushrooms reduced & there is not a lot of water left, add the eggs, scramble or keep whole, best served with goat cheese, & grated Parmesan, here in Belgium it's considered a luxurious meal and will set you at least 20€ at even the cheapest restaurant

paul stamets has, in one of his books, details for re-using a substrate for different tiers of mushrooms until it's basically pure decomposed compost if you want to get the most out of your materials

I use wild bird feed for my grainspawn and some people like to throw away the sunflower seeds since they say the mycelium doesnt like it. so I always just strain the sunflower seeds, put them in a separate jar and they always colonize with no problem, sometimes even going faster then the rest of the sunflowerless birdseed jars.

Any mushroom growers here btw? Its winter where I'm at so not really much mushrooms to find outdoors

So these mushrooms (mica caps i assume) have been growing and dying under this tree for a few months now... they'll spring up, last a few days, then gone for a week or two...
is there anything i can do to 'help' them? so-to-speak... i want to see them thrive
>>
>>2279872
as in last longer? No, that is how they are.
>>
>>2245929
thats nice looks like pancake batter
>>
>>2251923
With oysters they're generally mature enough to harvest when the caps start to flatten out. With pink and yellows (I've been told) its better to harvest slightly earlier because of their poor shelf life. The yellowing should be from bruising/ or the fruiting body dehydrating.
>>2251907
I've successfully fruited a small batch of shitake when I first started from a jar of sawdust and popcorn (didn't realize I was supposed to do one jar of grain, and then use it to colonize out to bulk at the time). I say go for it. Just be warned they take longer than oysters to colonize your media.
>>
>>2274009
Grower here, although its been a few months since I've done anything. Had to stop for awhile because my diy grow tent let spores out into my crazy humid basement, had a scare with oysters somehow growing up through cracks in the cement floor. I'm assuming from sawdust, from back when it was a woodshop, was buried in there. But still, wasn't a fan of the supports in my house possibly being eaten away by my food, so I had to stop until I could put something safer together. Got an actual grow tent on the way now, so I'll be starting back up soon. I'll be making sure to vent the tent outside to avoid any potential problems.

not for the mushrooms themselves to last longer, more concerned about whatever is going on underground... can i do anything to get a higher number of mushroom coming up at once, or have them spread out further and take over a larger area?
Eventually they're not going to grow back, i just want that time to be as far into the future as possible.
>>
>>2282829
Hang them in low branches upwind of the area. I do this on my property to loosely cultivate areas. My best success has been with Mica Caps and Shaggy Parasol. Aminita are just taking hold this year. It works, some types better than others.

Any ideas?

>>2273638
It would prob be a good idea to break up the seeds first. I'm worried that having the seed inside the shell would not allow it to be colonized and create contamination when it's in the substrate. break a couple open when it's done and see if the inside if the seed is colonized as well as the shell.
