Porcini mushrooms are always out of competition. You don't often see them on store shelves. And the price for them cannot be called small. Meanwhile, having a summer cottage or a personal plot, it is not at all difficult to breed porcini mushrooms. It is not suggested to buy expensive mycelium. There is another way. In addition, to implement the idea, you need only one well-ripened mushroom.
The location of the mycelium is the porous part of the fungus, located directly under the cap. It is she who is needed for "sowing".
It is important to awaken the spores of the mushrooms, otherwise the harvest may not wait. Having chopped the porous part of the mushroom into a gruel, we send it to a container with diluted yeast and leave it in a warm dark place for 1.5-2 weeks. For 2 liters of rain or spring water, you will need 20 g of yeast and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Shake the resulting liquid and filter through cheesecloth.
Add 100-150 ml of the filtered liquid to the watering can.
Now you just need to water the soil in the right places. You don't have to dig anything up to "sow" the mushrooms. This can be done right along the fence, between fruit trees or bushes.
Places around the woodshed, shed, greenhouse are also suitable.
You can also water the beds, the crops from which are not planned to be harvested this season. Ideally, the "sowing" should be carried out before the rain, so that as many of the awakened spores as possible reach the ground. After the liquid is distributed over the site, the landing sites need to be watered abundantly. Then you just have to wait until next year.
It is important to take into account that in open areas, mushrooms ripen somewhat faster and are smaller in size. The leg of the mushroom can simply be twisted out of the ground. At the same time, the place where the mushroom was plucked must be sprinkled with earth so that the mycelium will continue to yield.
The resulting harvest will definitely please. The main thing is not to forget to pick the newly grown mushrooms in time. If any mushroom outgrows, you should not be upset. It can always be used to increase the yield.
