I just ordered a vial/syringe of spores for the White Morel. To save on shipping, I also ordered spores for Portabella, Yellow Oyster, and Reishi mushrooms. I have been an organic gardener since I was five years old helping my organic gandening mother, so I am confident that I can grow the other three varieties. So, my questions are for anyone who has had success growing Morels. I chose the white version because I heard it was the easiest of the Morels to grow. I live in East TN and I know Morels grow wild around here. A guy I work with hunts them, but will not share or tell me where he hunts :) Not that I blame him. So, here goes...

Bear in mind, I have five acres to use, three are wooded with several different types of hardwood trees.

1. What is the best way to prepare a 'bed' for these mushrooms?

2. What is the best way to deliver the spores to the bed?

3. What kind of maintenance is needed (watering, weeding, mulching, etc) before the Morels begin to appear?

Any help is greatly appreciated. The spores I ordered have a shelf life of two months, so I have time to do what I need to do. I just need to know what to do.

Thanks all!
Mike

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
