Hello! Allow me to ask you where to find the substrate for Glossy Glossy Ganoderma lucidum . On this site I found a botanical description of this sponge, but I would also like to receive information on how I can grow it. Thank you for answer.
where to find the substratum I can not tell you about the possibilities of growing glossy wood I write here . It is not difficult: You will take an oak, beech, alder or ash tree (the trees are actually more), you will scatter shimmer powder and will grow up in half a year when the log is not too dry. Crops usually use sawdust, glossiness does 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 cultivation of glossy ice: Heavy Metal Contamination and Generative Genetic Degeneration. It is important that you use wood from a clean, preferably alpine 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 glossy ice usually do not even know if what's on them is growing or not glossy. Lesklokora also has several different tribes that are so unrelated that they are bordered by different species. Even if you buy a high-quality gluttony from a serious trade, after several generations, mushrooms that are grown tend to degenerate - coughing on the production of medicinal substances, and concentrating all of the energy on the fastest growth, fruiting and sputtering dust. However, one-time cultivation does not have to bother you.
