Our CRAZY mushrooms

mangledmind(AZ 9B)May 29, 2010

Our crazy mushrooms, now we have them in a raised bed in the backyard which has a straight mix of GroWell Organics potting soil.

THESE DIE OFF AS SOON AS THE HEAT OF THE DAY KICKS IN.

AND THESE STICK AROUND ALL DAY THRU THE HEAT EVEN ?!?!?!?

wow - super 'shrooms!
We very occasionally get mushrooms popping up after monsoon rains - I didn't realize the spores (or whatever) were viable down here. Do you think these came with the potting mix or that maybe the spores dropped in from elsewhere?

Hey zzini,

We get mushrooms in our raised beds that are a 50/50 of Kellog Amend and Potting soil. I talked to the rep a month ago and he said they truck the product in from their San Diego supplier. So the mushroom spores could be from the coastal area. As for this batch, it has to be local, as this bed is 100% soil from GroWell Organics.

Neat to see, thanks for posting these. It's always fun to see who is growing what. Yes, even mushrooms. :)

Take care,
Grant
