Cultivation Difficulty: Moderate (outdoor)- Difficult (indoor)
Substrate: hardwood chips and sawdust, peatmoss and composts
Colonization/Fruiting Temperatures: 70-75F/40-50F
Available In: 10cc mycelium solution
A highly desirable edible species best suited for outdoor cultivation. Areas where morels are found locally are more likely to have success with cultivating morels. We suggest building beds under apple or poplar trees of hardwood chips mixed with spawn, peatmoss, sawdust and gypsum. Very specific conditions of temperature and humidity are required for indoor cultivation, for more information see Growing Gourmet and Medicinal mushrooms by Paul Stamets.
The culture offered here was cloned from a specimen collected in our Southern Mountains near Knoxville, Tennessee. Low passage number insures the sclerotia formation necessary for fruiting body development.
Note: Culture supplied as living mycelium in solution in a sterile 10cc syringe with unattached 16 gauge needle. Culture can be stored under refrigeration for several months. Use to directly inoculate Sterilized Substrates and Media.
