How to get spores from a mushroom?
Place the hat on the sheet and cover it with a glass (disinfected with alcohol). Wait between 12 and 24 hours for the hat to release its spores.
Place 100g of mycelium for 500g of coffee grounds in a tightly closed freezer bag and put everything in a dark place and hot for about 3 weeks. The mixture will blanch and you can install it in the light.
The mycelium has a great power of penetration and dissemination in the substrate. The extension of the mycelial network, favored by the small diameter of the hyphae (from 5 to 10 μm in most species), ensures a maximum contact surface between the fungus and the environment from which it derives its subsistence.
The mycelium, known in everyday language as mushroom white (a reference to the color of felting observed for example in forest litter), is the vegetative apparatus of fungi or certain filamentous bacteria such as Actinomycetes (Streptomyces, Mycobacterium …).
The mushroom was over 2,400 years old. The main use of the mycelium is in the cultivation of mushrooms.
Among this organic fraction, the fungal mycelium represents 60% of the total microbial biomass of the soil (i.e. an average on earth of 3,500 kg/ha, which corresponds to the weight of 40 deer per hectare or 3 kg/m 2 ). Reported to 1 m2 of soil, the cumulative surface of all the hyphae of the microfungi mycelium can exceed 100 m2.
