I am an amateur mycologist and have had great success growing shitakes and oysters in my apartment. My all time favourite mushroom to eat is the Morel. So you can imagine my dissapointment upon learning that these mushrooms are very diffifult to grow and from my research when grown in artificial conditions are just not the same as wild morels. I'm wondering if anyone has experience to the contrary. I have spent quite sometime trying to find a proven method of propogating them but it just doesnt seem like something that has been figired out yet. Please tell me I am mistaken.
Wow. I've got to try that. It doesn't seem like his morels are associated with any trees. I've read that some types of morels can grow in just mulch. I don't have any morels to get spores from. I wonder where you can buy morel spores that will grow just in mulch?
I have morels that grow in my orchard and garden beds. My neighbor tried to grow them a few years ago and failed so far but I got lucky. It helps that I have decades old apple trees, woodchip mulch paths all over, above and below ground hugelkulture/buried wood, a relatively moist climate and neighbors who experiment with mycology.

I just got a Morel Habitat from gmushrooms. Is there a good way to increase the spawn so I can plant more than one spot? I want a 4'x4' habitat like the directions say, but I'd like to plant some under an apple and some under a cherry too.
