    So a friend wanted this culture so I cloned from wild fruitbody. I couldn't help myself and started trying to cultivate it. It seems to be easy enough to fruit as this grain bag started to pin before I could spawn it. I cut open the bag and it has been just sitting on a desk. Here is the first fruit. The ones inside the bag look nothing like they should so it must like plenty of fae. Enjoy.

    Well I figured I better start posting some grows or people would start thinking I was just some troll floating around answering others threads.

    Hey Trout, nice to see you having success in fruiting P. squamosus. Did you ever eat one and can comment on its taste?

    Damned that applies to me as well. LOL.

    I also haven't grown anything in months :( As far as the taste...:ugh: even fully cooked, it tasted terrible and it literally squeaked when I chewed it, and it was extremely rubbery, just like the sole of a shoe, but maybe prepared a different way it would be better

    They smell weird and I didn't get a chance to cook them but I will give this guy a go when he grows a bit more. I hear they need to be young to be any good. I read somewhere people were eating them and liked them but most reports are not promising. Cucumber flavored filet of shoe sole. LOL

    But dammit I grew it myself so ima gona eat it!

    So it seems. My humidifier was dead so they got the neglect tek. I slit the bag near a blob and set it on a desk in my man cave. First a blob grew and then slightly above that this grew. I placed it in the fc now that I have a fogger going. Who knows what it will do now. I will update when I see developments. Inside the bag it just grew fingers with some pore surface on them.

    Oh, oh, thanks Someguy for the gourmet report!
    I also read about young P.s. specimens tasting better or do I have to say less awful? One day I'm going to try these myself.

    Trout, when seeing visible pores on the second pic, I was wondering about P. tuberaster, but I guess you are sure about the ID.
    Whoever finds Polyporus tuberaster, should really try it, it is delicious, easy to cultivate and usually fruits like mad.

    This is its source. From a willow tree in Ohio last August. I could be wrong but I don't think so.

    I fully agree to your ID. It must have been one with unusually small pores, which I found here once.

    Very interesting grow Trout!
    I wonder what medicinal properties this species may possess, looked around a bit and could find much literature on it. Keep up the good work!

    Glad y’all found my past work. I am hardly ever on here lately, funny that I checked in.
