    Hello,

    Someone on the other site had a give-away of a non-typical species of mushroom.

    Scutellinia scutellata is the "eyelash cup" fungus.

    Here is some good info:
    http://www.mushroomexpert.com/scutellinia_scutellata.html

    I thought that someone here might find the grow interesting (thanks to Ooby's prodding).

    I will post photos if I am successful. All I have thus far is a clean sawdust block
    that is colonizing nicely.

    The other URL is:

    Take care,

    JD

    I stumbled upon some Scutellinia in Sundridge Ontario back in July.

    A neat looking fungus.

    Looking forward to seeing your progress. Good luck with the grow!

    Well, the first attempt ripped over agar, then through grains,
    and then through a straight sawdust sub block.

    Fruits: no joy.

    Now, thanks to Terry, I got a fresh sample of genetics, and
    will be spawning this to subs today.

    (one shaken prior to being spawned)

    I will be doing both a supplemented wood mulch block
    and another straight sawdust block.

    I am also going to allow for a much longer consolidation period as well.

    I will keep you informed.
