Anybody Here Intentionally Grow Mushrooms?
Part of my property is shaded by several large live oaks. A few years ago, after cutting off some large branches, I got the bright idea that since this area stays in permanent shade anyway, why not try growing edible mushrooms on these logs?
So, I sent away for a "lion's mane" spore kit from a company out in Washington state. After impregnating the logs with the spores, I sat back and waited for something delicious to happen.
And waited, and waited, and waited.
Can edible mushrooms be grown in Southwest Florida at all? Should I try another species?
This mail-order company had a zillion kinds of mushroom spores in their rather attractive catalog.
Has anybody here done this?
Are there any mushroom-growing forums on GardenWeb? I can't seem to find any.
