    I've tried inoculating a few colonies myself but without luck. We technically can't ship the spawn to Hawaii without spending hundreds on permits so I've tried to make my own. Still haven't given up though. I did get some shiitake mushrooms to sort of grow once.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Do you know why it did not work out?

    The only wild ones that I have seen grow here are stinkhorns, various woody varieties, death cap amanitas and other poisonous ones, and the ones that grow out in the cow fields... But let's not discuss those.

    I do love mushrooms though. Baby bellas, button, oyster... Never tried a morel though.

    I'm guessing its because the mushrooms available here have very little to no spores unless you can find them in the wild. I don't trust my mushroom picking skills enough to do it, so I'm stuck with the store bought ones. So when I make the spore slurry there just isn't enough to get established I think. I'm sure there is probably other possibilities as well, like my lack of experience, but I think this might be the main reason.

    few more from the other day. Most pics didn't turn out because it was pouring rain and the skeeters were HORRIBLE. But here's the ones that did turn out..

    lol, yeah, mine wont let me come 10 feet with a camera!

    Anyway, Partially inspired by your pictures (plus the price tags I keep seeing for morels around here!) I have started a morel growing project. I found some fresh mushrooms here locally and got some spore prints from them. I kind of wish I had just let the spores drop straight onto agar but hindsight is 20/20. Might start a thread about it on another forum- I know some others are currently doing a similar experiment.

    Thanks mass! I appreciate the (perhaps inadvertent) encouragement!
