Hi Mike


Are there any species of wood, or bark, that will interfere with successful growth of the King Stropharia mushrooms?


Also, are there any species of wood or bark that the King Stropharia mushrooms especially like?

In our garden paths, the King Stropharia mushrooms digest 3 inches of wood/bark chip annually.  Periodically when the weather &conditions are right we get flushes of mushrooms here and there.  We look upon the flushes, as suprise gifts, from Mother Nature for our stewardship.


King Stropharia, both caps and stipes, make a fine addition when making mushroom soup.....

King Stropharia are secondary composter. I do not know of any wood that they do not like.

Oyster mushroom are primary decomposers.
