- Rake the soil under a tree to form a hole of 2-6 in (5-15 cm) is depending on the location of the roots near the soil surface. Spread the mycelium evenly. Cover soil mixed with any compost in equal proportion.
- Cultivation can be done at any time of the year and under any tree species. Mushrooms appear 4 times a year – 2 times in the spring and 2 times in the fall, but for the first time no earlier than 2,5 months after cultivation.
- The mycelium grows until tree lives. Indoor, you can try to grow mushrooms in the same way as champignons, but the results will be much worse than on the backyard.
Attention! A very important factor for the successful cultivation of mushrooms is the acidity of the soil. For this mushroom, the optimum acidity is Ph = 6,5 – 7. A more acidic soil (Ph is less than mentioned) must be deoxidized with a solution of quicklime (at the rate of 3 of lime per gallon of water per 10 ft2).
