Glad to hear you've had luck with them! Oddly, the Anglica Kanaele Bog must've had something wrong with them... so it's not your fault. My whole pot of them didn't pull through, but the Alakai Swamp form did. I'm happy that I was able to help out a fellow Iowan Happy holidays, dude!
Hey thanks for the comments! I'm still new too growing these mushrooms, but I've been experimenting with inoculating logs and growing them on compost. Right now it is just the mycelium, which glows, but not brightly enough to catch on camera. I'll keep you updated. Maybe you can grow some in the future.
I stratified them in a damp paper towel in a plastic bag for 3 months. The best way to stratify with minimal fungus is to put them in the freezer for a week and let them thaw for a week. Repeat this for 3 months and you should be good.
So far I have only flasked what amounted to be about a dozen seeds in a 2 oz. container half filled w/ distilled. Instant gratification freak in me is always up for an experiment.
Can you recommend any good techniques? I havn't had much luck in the stratification business so far.
