Cloning Clitocybe Maxima
« on: January 29, 2014, 07:08:52 AM »
Giant clitocybe (Clitocybe maxima) is well known as Big Cup mushroom (Dabeixun), Pig Stomach mushroom (Zhudugu) or Big Cup Umbrella (Dabeisan) in China.
My friend gave me a bottle of grain spawn.
I kept it too long until the fruit came out off the bottle.




I decided to clone this mushroom onto my CWA (Coconut Water Agar)




One week on CWA.



Two weeks on CWA.



Is it the fruit body of this mushroom?

Packdee, what's the diameter of that mushroom?  It sure does look massive. 

Is it easy to grow?  Requires the same substrate and casing as Calocybe indica?

Last hot season all of my Clitocybe indica culture died because my refrigerator was broken.


I start Clitocybe maxima project again by visiting a friend.


She gave me a very young sprout of this mushroom for cloning.


I made 15 bottle of cloning tissue from half of this mushroom sprout.
