Medicinal fungi usually belong to rarer and slowly growing species. Their cultivation on a natural substrate makes us unnecessary to extract the fruit of these mushrooms from nature. With the proper care of the substrate, water, and the quality of the genofond of the medicinal fungi being sown, a natural equivalent can be obtained.
Different methods and configurations of mushroom cultivation
As a substrate for wood-destroying fungal species, either full wood (logs) or sawdust, straw or other comminuted organic material are used. Cultivation on the fields requires only minimal care, and the growing mushrooms are decorative, so this method is suitable for recreational growers:
The advantage of growing on logs from decomposed organic material is, in turn, the faster growth of ground fungi and the formation of fruiting trees. The disadvantage is the greater susceptibility to contamination - the blocks are therefore packed in plastic packaging. This method is mainly used by professional growers:
The question of optimal conditions for mushroom cultivation does not have a general answer. Different types of fungi require different substrates (wood, straw, manure, etc.) to grow. They are also parasitic mushrooms that grow only on certain organisms (eg caterpillars, Cordyceps spp. ). Configuration requirements also vary for different types:
Production of fruit concentrate
Plants of healing fungi belonging to the category of adaptogens can be consumed directly. Types that are inedible for their hard consistency (including the most famous healing sponges - glossy gloss) have to be powdered before ingestion. The powder is used either in capsules or in the natural state, mixed in a glass of lukewarm water. Another option is the preparation of leachate ("tea") from comminuted or plaited fruit.
A concentrate can also be prepared from the medicinal fungi. Unlike mycelia processing technology, where concentration is a necessary step to remove excess solution and agar ballast , the fertility concentration is an optional, rewarding process. The extract prepared from a certain amount of fertilizer with a particular solvent (water, alcohol or other organic solvents) is concentrated by evaporation. It can then be reconstituted into a powder form and, using the appropriate drug carriers, again processed into capsules, tablets or other dosage forms.
Collection of spatter dust
Each funerary plant produces a certain amount of spontaneous dust. There is no wonder - the sputum production and propagation is the main mission of the ovary. In the warm air that usually dominates in the grocery store, the spatter dust gradually accumulates under the hats:
(Brown spudge dust gathered in the grocery under the glistening glistening glans)
This spatter dust can be collected. Certain small portions of this sputtering dust consume mycelium and primordial products to inoculate their culture vessels , but for the most part there is an effort to find a health or cosmetic use for excess sputum dust, as the sputter dust also contains a number of secondary metabolites of medicinal herbs. For example, not only the fetus, but also the glossy glossy sparkling powder contains the famous ganoderic acids, albeit only in a small amount (quote).
