TOPIC: Growing Morels (i think)

Growing Morels (i think) 3 years 7 months ago #28066

Hey Everyone,
I am super stoked about these morels. Why? because they came up in a test plot from last year. I wanted to try it somewhere where i could monitor it, so i chose a location beside my false unicorn beds. i mean right outside the fence, at first i was going to try it in the same beds, but decided not to. I will try it again next (this) year in a bed. If it works again..........OH BOY!
Please don't ask me how i did this until i have a chance to duplicate it.

K duce congrats. Morchella Deliciosas also know as the Tulip Poplar morel. Your calcium level in that soil is at a good level (Have you had the soil tested). I've growen blacks and the TP morel in a lab setting and the mycelium network grows the same for both. The true yellow morel (morcella esculenta) MYC network is very different. When I set up an outside patch I use blacks or TP morel spawn and have great results. When I make my outside patches I get an area set up with high calcuim level and spawn that area. I try to make my spawned patch around an area that has a barrier (much lower calicum levels) this triggers the fruiting of the morels. I've set those spawned areas up my road ways, rock outcrops, field edges, streams/lakes anywhere the soil changes these become the fruiting area's. I like that buried piece of lumber nice barrier.

Thanks Trahn,
You know alot more about mushrooms than i ever will. About the only thing i know about them is they taste good. It may have been a fluke and if it don't work next year, well i guess i can keep trying, i have not done any soil testing on the area. Do black morels require alot of calcium also? I seem to have a few big areas that produce black morels on a very consistant basis.

Black morels do like calcium rich soil. Do you have alot of Tulip Poplars (Yellow Poplar) on your property? The leaves from the poplar are very rich in calcium.
