Hello! Allow me to ask you where to find a substrate for Glossy Glossy Ganoderma lucidum . On this site I found a botanical description of this sponge, but I would also like to know how I can grow it. Thank you for answer.
Where to find the substratum I can not tell you about the possibilities of cultivation of glossy paper I write here . It's not that complicated: You'll take an oak, beech, alder or ash tree (the trees are actually more), you'll be splashing glitter powder and will grow up in half a year when the log is not too dry. Crops usually use sawdust, glossy leaves do not matter. So getting some shine from its own sources is not such a problem. Of course, this shiny powder can not be sterilized.
There are two main issues that await you in the production of glossy ice: Heavy Metal Contamination and Generative Genetic Degeneration. It is important to use wood from a clean, preferably high mountain area (for example, the Šumava would be ok). Mushrooms have the ability to accumulate poisonous metals, and in a clean environment they are able to accumulate a surprising amount. Mushrooms from industrial areas should, according to my professor of lower plants from the UK, should not be consumed at all. The water to moisten the block must also be completely clean.
The second problem arises over long-term cultivation. People who are trying to grow a shine will not even know if what's on them is growing or not glossy. Lesklokora also has several different tribes, which are so unrelated that they are bordering on different species. Even if you buy a high quality gluttony from a serious trade, after several generations, the mushrooms that grow are tended to degenerate - coughing on the production of medicinal substances and concentrating all energy on the fastest growth, the formation of ferrets and sputum dust. However, one-time cultivation does not have to bother you.
