Everything Mushrooms Pilze Pilze vermehren und verbreiten sich geschlechtlich und ungeschlechtlich durch Sporen und vegetativ durch Ausbreitung (eventuell mit Fragmentierung) ihrer manchmal sehr langlebigen Myzelien oder Mykorrhizen. Die Wissenschaft von den Pilzen ist die Mykologie. Etymologie[Bearbeiten] Das Wort Pilz (ahd. buliz) ist aus lateinisch bōlētus entlehnt; die weitere Herkunft ist unklar. Die botanische Bezeichnung Fungi (lat. fungus „Pilz“) lässt sich auf griechisch σφόγγος sphóngos zurückführen; dies bezeichnete ursprünglich Schwämme. Mykologie und ähnliche Begriffe sind abgeleitet von griechisch μύκης mýkēs „Pilz“.[3] Abgrenzung zu Pflanzen und Tieren[Bearbeiten] Nachdem Pilze wegen ihrer sesshaften Lebensweise lange dem Reich der Pflanzen zugeordnet wurden, gelten sie heute aufgrund ihrer physiologischen und genetischen Eigenschaften als eigenes Reich und enger mit Tieren als mit Pflanzen verwandt.

Paper-Back Planters: Recycling Books to Pot Indoor Plants | Designs &Ideas on Dornob Have books finally met their match with the Apple iPad, or is it just another fad like the Amazon Kindle? Readers may find some poetry in these volumes regardless of whether they are willing to give up their favorite paperback companions: potted plants put into scooped-out sections of beautiful old hardback books. Gardenkultur (via Inhabitat) makes a simple recycling project out of even the most complex novels, but carving into the heart of a book, sealing off the resulting space and putting seeds of little trees or other plant life into the curved void. But if a picture is said to be worth one thousand, at how many words do we value a wee plant? Hopefully these books were beyond repair and those ripe only for reuse.

Oyster Mushroom Cultivation | Mushroom Cultivation Mushroom is an exotic and nutritious source of vegetarian food. It has many varieties. Most of them are edible. Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus spp., viz., P. ostreatus, P.flabellatus, P. sajor-caju, P. florida etc.) are a good choice for beginning mushroom cultivators because they are easier to grow than many of the other species and they can be grown on a small scale with a moderate initial investment. Substrate preparation Oyster mushroom can be grown on various substrates viz., paddy straw, maize stalks/cobs, vegetable plant residues etc. Soaking Chop paddy straw into 3-5 cm pieces and soak in fresh water for 8-16 hours. Heat Treatment Heat treatment of substrate results in minimizing contamination problem and gives higher and almost constant yields. PasteurizationChemical sterilisation technique Pasteurization Boil water in a wide mouth container such as tub or drum. Chemical sterilisation technique Take 90 litres of water in a drum of 200 litre capacity. Spawning Cropping and harvest

Make Canning Jars Look Vintage Blue I bought these probably five years ago at an antique/consignment store. I think I paid about 12 dollars for a set of four. Now you can expect to pay at least that for just one. Last night I was cruising around the internet and happened upon a link to a tutorial using mod podge and food coloring to make your own. This afternoon I decided to play around with some mod-podge and food coloring myself. Just pour some mod podge into one of your jars. Add a few drops of water to thin down just a bit. You want to get as much of the mod podge mixture out of the jar as possible so you don't have a big glob of dried gunk in the bottom of your lovely jar. This is how it will look wet. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere about heat setting paint on glassware by baking it at a low temp, so I set my oven on the lowest setting it would allow, 150 degrees and popped them in. I took this after they had cooked for about 20 minutes. And for the finished product, drum roll please..... Not too shabby, eh?

Fungiculture Fungiculture is the process of producing food, medicine, and other products by the cultivation of mushrooms and other fungi. The word is also commonly used to refer to the practice of cultivating fungi by leafcutter ants, termites, ambrosia beetles, and marsh periwinkles. Introduction[edit] Instead of seeds, mushrooms reproduce asexually through spores. Mycelium, or actively growing mushroom culture, is placed on a substrate—usually sterilized grains such as rye or millet—and induced to grow into those grains. Techniques[edit] All mushroom growing techniques require the correct combination of humidity, temperature, substrate (growth medium) and inoculum (spawn or starter culture). Wild harvesting[edit] Due to its climate, the Pacific Northwest of the USA produces commercially valuable mushrooms. Mushroom gatherers have few requirements to begin business. There are significant disadvantages to relying on natural mushroom production. Outdoor logs[edit] Indoor trays[edit] Substrates[edit]

Mushroom Farming and Mushroom Cultivation Leaf Skeletons I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor. I have spent hours and tried various ways of making these. You need washing soda, not baking soda! Gather your leaves. Washing soda is a strong base so you may want to wear gloves when handling the leaves. You will add 3/4 cup of washing soda and 4 cups of water to your pot of leaves. Keep going, you will need to add more water so your pan doesn’t dry out. When 1.75 hours are up fill a glass baking dish with cool water. I carefully removed them and rinsed with water and added clean water to the pan. If you’re still with me, this is what I ended up with… I have a maple leaf which turned out not so well. 37.1Kstumbleupon

Growing Morel Mushrooms: Multiple Techniques ShareThisFacebookTweetLinkedInPinterestEmail The process of growing morel mushrooms has baffled amateur and professional mycologists for years. Now that we know more about the mysterious morel, growing your own is certainly possible. Reading through the other morel pages on this site before you start will help you better understand their life cycle. Below are a few different ways to grow morels, ranging from easier techniques to more difficult. Click here to share a morel growing story with visitors to this page! The Grow Kit and Spawn Method One of the most popular ways of growing morel mushrooms is with purchased spawn. Mushroom spawn is simply the mycelium, or "vegetative growth" of the mushroom, and the material on which it was grown. This mycelium-infused material is then used to inoculate larger batches of substrate to create a mushroom bed. The easiest way to get spawn is by purchasing a morel mushroom kit, which you can do online. Follow the instructions that come with your kit. Wait:

Survival Gardening: Part 2 Survival Cache The answer to everyone’s question is “No”, we are not too late to get started on our Survival Garden for this year, not for most of the population living in the United States and Canada. It keeps snowing on me here in Utah, so I’m still waiting. This is the 2nd post in a series on Survival Gardening Read Part 1: Survival Gardening I just moved into a new place and so I haven’t been able to do my fall preparation like I normally would, but that’s just the way it is sometimes, so don’t sweat the small stuff. Many times people are frustrated because they hear the radio shows, read the books, view the Emergency Foodvideos, and find their situation doesn’t match up to what they are hearing from the experts. So with that aside, you can start your garden with me, and we’ll do the best we can, and we WILL have a nice garden. OK, so now you have a few choices of crops now let’s look at the space that is available to you. Read the rest of the article May 2, 2011

Of Mycelium and Men Yesterday I came home and was ecstatic to find my Gourmet Oyster Mushroom kit had arrived from Funghi Perfecti! Funghi Perfecti , the company founded by a genius mycologist I’ve recently discovered , Paul Stamets , proudly purports to be “the leaders in a new wave of technologies harnessing the inherent power of mushrooms and fungal mycelium worldwide.” Amen, brother. I opened the box to discover an adorably ugly plastic bag stuffed thick with an soft brown substance. Sounded like 2010: A Spore Odyssey. As a Mushroom Caretaker, the book told me, it’s simply my job to give the patch a good home. Keeping mushrooms next to the worms . To activate the patch, I misted the surface with de-chlorinated water. The easiest method is to simply boil tap water and let it cool. After misting, I placed the “humidity tent,” a plastic bag perforated with little hole s , over the top. Now I just have to keep the whole thing damp. Within 14 days, bumpy knobs will begin to form.
