      Thanks everybody!

      Actually I was preparing myself to grow different kind of mushroom on oak trunks... 
      Could you tell me where I can get the spores of Phoenix Fir Oyster and Hyphol√≥ma capno√≠des from european companies? 
      There are any other commercial available mushroom that I can gorw on Fir Trunks?

      Thanks again to everybody

      Hi Everyone,

      I have been inoculating christmas trees with edible mushroom mycelium.
      I used Phoenix Fir Oyster mushroom mycelium on softwood dowels.
      Tools required were a drill, 5/16 inch bit and a mallet.

      If you visit www.fungi.com you can see some of the products I've used.
      The dowels are under the name "Plug Spawn."

      In a normal garden setting in Bermuda, I got results at almost exactly
      the same time I inoculated in the previous year (in other words, time
      till fruiting was about 1 year), and I didn't do anything except spray
      water once in a while and cover the logs with some burlap (a.k.a.

      Nice use of a throw-away resource.



      By my own example I hoped to become a living refutation to the cult of
      anointed expertise which has poisoned every aspect of our liberties.
      Time we were done with this thing.
      This was once a land where every sane person knew how to build a
      shelter, grow food, and entertain one another.
      Now we have been rendered permanent children. It's the architects of
      forced schooling who are responsible for that.
