- Locate a tree that has the right conditions for chanterelle mushrooms to grow. Good trees include beech, spruce, pine or birch. The ideal environment for chanterelles to grow is one that has soil that drains well and low levels of nitrogen.
- Test the soil near the tree. The ideal pH of soil is between 4 and 5.5.
- Rake the soil where you wish to grow the chanterelle spores, as they will not survive in compact soil. In the future, avoid walking on the soil in this area.
