In order to pick wild mushrooms, you don't have to go to the forest. You can also grow them in your own summer cottage. Of course, you have to work a little in a certain sense, but the result is worth it.
First of all, you need to take care of creating the appropriate conditions, and this is not about the fact that the soil or moisture correspond to any special parameters. First of all, on the site where it is planned to grow mushrooms, there should be trees under which they grow.
It should be understood that the forest mushroom exists exclusively in tandem with trees. It is not just that names such as boletus, boletus and others appeared. People, observing exactly where the mushrooms grow, under which trees, and named them accordingly.
The mycelium, while developing, braids the root system of a particular tree, penetrating inside it. Thus, a fungus root or mycorrhiza appears. Hence the name of this type of fungi - mycorrhizal.
Too many trees are required. It is much more important that they take root and are completely healthy. Leaves from the tree also do not hurt. A bag of two or three is enough.
After the question is closed with trees, you can also deal with mushrooms, or rather planting them.
Today on the net you can find a lot of different and useful information on this topic. The first thing you need to know is what kind of mushrooms grow under what trees. In short, then:
- aspen: aspen milk mushroom, aspen redwood, etc.;
For cultivation, you need mushroom mycelium, which will be planted. You can get them using a fairly simple method. In the forest in the fall, you should collect large overripe mushrooms, which usually do not cause interest in mushroom pickers and are not cut off.
Then they are sorted according to the type, finely chopped, one might say, squeezed. After that, each individual type of mushroom is soaked in warm water in ten-liter containers. A pack of dry instant yeast is added to each of them and left for three weeks. After the pulp has precipitated, drain the solution. It is he who we need. The solution is diluted with water and poured under the appropriate trees.
The planting sites are covered with leaves that were previously brought from the forest. The landing procedure is complete. It remains to wait for the result.
