    As a former forestry student I've always objected to how people call every edible fungus a "mushroom". Mushrooms have a stem and cap by definition. Many of the edible fungi are not mushrooms but bracket fungi or jelly fungus. But I can understand how that might not sound as appealing haha! Call them what you will, I like to call them by their nicknames. "Hen of the woods" and "wood ear" are the neatest sounding names.

      Perhaps the word itself needs refinement? I'm new to this stuff, but it seems like a more useful way to use "mushroom" would be to mean the fruiting part of a mycelium.

      he was talking about mushrools you cultivate, or can grow reliably. Chanterelles, and even morels, dont really fit in that category, although as he says there are some advances in cultivating morels that are worth taking a look at

    I remember my mom buying a box of grow your own button mushrooms. We had a perfect cold dark stone basement so they grew like crazy. I remember as a kid walking down into the basement every day to go check on them. This really makes me want to go out a buy another grow kit ๐Ÿฅฐ

    I spent some years in China and I was and still am amazed at how we can find most of the mushrooms that he mentioned on supermarkets, specially gourmet supermarkets there...
    I specially loved the Nameko (orange and slimy) mushrooms added to soups, it gives the soup an amazing taste and texture. Another rare mushroom that I loved there was this "Strawberry Mushroom", or Paddy Mushroom, but you need to but and use it immediately... It spoils really quick. You just need to cut it in half to use it.

  • Find In Nature - mycology, fungi

    Very interesting. I find a lot of them in the wild, Agaricus, Auricularia, Coprinus, Flammulina, Ganoderma, Trametes, Volvariellaโ€ฆ (some I didn't know they were cultivated!). However for beginners it's safer to find them at the grocery store.

    Itโ€™s all very well you explaining how many mushrooms you know of that you can cultivate, but do you know any of their uses? Like what are they good for apart from just eating and for your general health. Also wood ear tastes great cut up small and used as a pizza topping, very good for ear aches and sore throats, makes you feel happier too.

    • FreshCap Mushrooms

    I love Lion's Mane. In Chinese, it's also known as Monkey's Head. It has a nice meaty texture and down here in Malaysia, it is used a lot as a 'mutton substitute' in Chinese vegetarian restaurants.

    It makes me wonder how many species I've eaten without ever knowing their names in Austrian and Asian cuisine...
    From what I've heard, meat became a really fancy commodity in Feudal to early modern central Europe and that's one major reason why they were eating so many mushrooms. Later, potatoes and a few other plants supplemented their diet, but before it wasn't too much fun...

  • Hack 'n Build

    I have to disagree with you about wood ear, it's great in soup. It has a squid-like texture which could make it a possible squid substitute. It's commonly used in hot pots, noodles and other soups but I've never seen it used in any western dishes.

  • Hiแบฟu Trแป‹nh Thanh

    In Southern Vietnam, they have a mushroom called Macrolepiota albuminosa or termite mushroom. It is found growing from termitaria in grassy fields, hills. I heard that it is super tasty and has a high value in the market.

    I usually collect the wild variety of the king oyster mushroom (Pleurotus eryngi) and it has nothing to do with the fat-stem cultivated variety. The wild variety is almost completely a cap, and the texture and taste is vastly superior.

      @Find In Nature - mycology, fungi From personal experience it grows in mixed birch woodland. Usually in the detritus etc on the ground. I'm not sure how a person could farm it.

  • b/tarded Bot 2.2.๐Ÿค–

    Great video. Has made me be able to identify the wood ear mushroom and know its edible as well. My local woods are filled with them, a random golden coloured oyster variety, dryads saddle, turkey tail, red banded conk and similars, and many many mica's. There's one that pops up at end of summer exactly like that Milk Cap species aswell. But I not 100% sure weather it is milk cap, so i definitely won't be on a harvest menu any time soon.

    Hi there great video. I am just now getting into mushroom growing. I was wondering if you which species you can grow from mycelium? Do all mushrooms grow from mycelium? I thought mushrooms grew from their spores??? What mushrooms can cultivate from the actual mushroom? Like the mycelium from oyster mushrooms? Thanks!

    • FreshCap Mushrooms
      FreshCap Mushrooms  2 years ago

      Spores are a precursor to mycelium... each spore contains half the genetic material required to fruit mushrooms. Spores turn into "hyphae" and then "hyphae" meet and form mycelium. Look up the "mushroom life cycle" and you'll see :)

  • Tamara Spillis

    Such a pleasure to listen to your vids.I think you meant to say the host when speaking of tremella encounter. The tremella being the parasite. Is the tremella host specific? As with Entoloma and Armillaria from which aborted entoloma forms? Really appreciate the content of the vids๐Ÿค—

      @Wagner Lemgruber Boechat I see. Yes, it's sad indeed, because I'm sure there is a lot of edible species. More to the south of Brazil where the climate is more temperate, there are probably a lot of species similar to those that are collected in Europe, North America and Asia!

    • Wagner Lemgruber Boechat
      Wagner Lemgruber Boechat 2 years ago

      @Find In Nature - mycology, fungi Not in fact. Brazilians do not pick in wild at all!
      There is a general belief that picking mushrooms from the wild is too dangerous. There are no experts or studies on the topic. Only a handful of chefs are trying to introduce native species. All mushrooms consumed in Brazil are grown. We have a lot of Shitake, Shampion and shimeji. Sometimes you find enoki and others, but it is not common. It is very sad....

    • Find In Nature - mycology, fungi

      the idea that you don't like mushrooms is entirely due to the fact that you've only bought commercially available mushrooms from stores. Try a morel or a chanterelle or a puffball, or some lions mane, and you'll change your mind very quickly

    As a vegan I can confirm that the use of mushrooms is on the increase because, as we develop more conscious eating habits, we definitely don't want to miss out in taste. Big meaty mushrooms are used as meat substitute which can be cooked grilled, caramelized with a little oil or deep fried if coated in flour ๐Ÿ˜‹. Mushrooms are very healthy, delicious and environment friendly. Thumbs up!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ’–

    And here I was hoping you name drop boletus edulis(referred to as porcino, suilli or steinpilz), a mushroom that growths naturally all over the northern hemisphere. It's been a staple to our families mushroom hunts and it's honestly pretty tasty. comparable in taste to champignons, but you'll have to remove the sponge since it's mostly inedible.

    I love lion's mane. I hope that one day, I'll be able to grow some. I just ordered an Oyster syringe. Hopefully I'll gain some experience. Oyster are sold in every super market and are inexpensive. So thedy are not my main target. Lion's mane is never sold here (I could only find it dried in Asian markets (mostly exceeded their expiry date already), but dried lion's mane is stinky (or it was the age or the storage conditions that made it stink). I once bought a grow box which was delicious.

    You forgot Chicken of The Wood, and Giant Puffer ( puffers in general). Both are excellent and more common than anything but the oysters and buttons you listed.

    Great video! Let me add a species to your list. If you do a TheXvid search for the Thai word " เน€เธซเน‡เธ”เน‚เธ„เธ™เธ™เน‰เธญเธข ", you will find lots of videos of people growing a species of Coprinus/Coprinopsis, (not shaggy mane). Being an inky-cap mushroom, it would not be suitable for commercial growing in North America, but it seems to grow on straw, so might be OK for a home grower. Check it out!!! Again, love the videos.

    Mycology is becoming popular all of a sudden in TheXvid. It first was widely mentioned here and then in bushcraft/outdoor survival, now it has become its own topic.

    Wood ear mushroom (like most mushroom when cooked right) is not supposed to be rubbery, it's supposed to have a bit of a crunch to them. Not sure if you're not cooking them right, or something else. (Don't know much about mushrooms, but I've eaten a lot of these somewhat regularly growing up)

    I found lions main mushroom in my grandparents backyard in Virginia ( they live right in a forest) and I had no idea what it was at the time, so obviously i poked it with a stick until it was totally ruined. Iโ€™ve never found it there since.

      I suppose some individuals may react that way with any coprinus species, although it's the Tippler's Bane mushroom (coprinus atramentarius) that is the one that must absolutely be avoided with alcohol. The chemical compound in the mushroom is the same as that found in the drug Antabuse, which is sometimes prescribed to chronic alcoholics for whom nothing else works. Consuming alcohol with this mushroom won't kill you, but you'll feel very sick.

    Hey quick question, I'm cutting down a bunch of elm trees I'm my back yard and I figured if I'm gonna have tree stumps then I should find a way to grow mushrooms on them.
    I heard from resurch that shiitake and oyster mushrooms would probably be the best here in utah. Do you have any advice on how to grow them or if I should wait for the stumps to get older before I try growing mushrooms?
    I'm thinking I'll try the straw bed technique at the base of the stumps and hope they travel up them? What do you think?

    No, I'd say an incredibly tiny amount of people only know white/brown mushrooms. The vast majority of people know of Amanita, Chanterelle, Shitaki, Penny Bun etc. Mushrooms that are sold in most food stores and are commonly found in forests.
    Its weird that someone that has an interest in and knowledge about mushrooms get that completely wrong.

  • Dynamic Eye Studios

    Do you think people could grow mushrooms on a boat โ›ต๏ธ with a good yield? Iโ€™ve been watching a lot of boat life TheXvid videos and it seems like mushrooms would be perfect to grow at sea. I presume one would have to choose the right species for the climate one is sailing in.
