I’m Tim, born in Australia, lived around the world and now in Berlin since around 13 years. I used to collect mushrooms in my teenage years and was always interested. Last year the telegram group was introduced to me in the first part of lockdown and inoculated me with interest again!
I have a Kleingarten (allotment) near Dammweg so I have prioritised my explorations to growing ourtside for now. To begin my interest is making enough grain and eventually inoculated substrate to spawn a solid colony of Stropharia rugosoannulata (Wine cap/Wandering giant).
Also under my bed is 3 sleeping oak logs with Shiitake inonculated. I should have really started in early spring but I was too impatient! Anyway, something kind of nice about sleeping over your mushroom logs.
Look forward to meeting you all, virtually or hopefully in person!
Warm myco vibes!
