Attempting To Grow Morel Mushrooms Indoors


morel mushroom mycelium

I'm attempting to grow morel mushrooms indoors from the morels I harvested this year. I used the mycelium from the stem butts of 2 mushrooms.  I'm using coffee and straw to get the spawn going.  It's been about 8 days and the mycelium is thin and wispy but is visible when I open the top of the jar as you can see above.  It is visible from the sides of the jar but is difficult to see.

What I plan to do is go get some of the soil where they were growing and mix it with coffee and straw to see if I can get it to spread.  If it does end up working I'll put it in the fridge for a week and then put it in my growing chamber with high humidity.  I'm hoping the change in the temperature triggers it to fruit.  I know the commercial growers use light 24/7 so I'll do the same.  It's a long shot but worth trying.

I took this photo June 13th, 2014.  The morel mycelium is spreading but seems to have hit it's peak.  I think it's time to add it to a substrate.

In our garden there are different vegetables including the mushrooms that are healthy. Increasing the demand by using this review of you will come to know about the things.
