We got a great tip from our friend Claire about a large stand of King Stropharia fruiting on the plateau behind the Dandenongs on mass. Upon arriving at the location the size (both in terms of amount and in terms of size of some of these mushrooms) literally blew our minds!
King Stropharia fruiting wild/feral in the Victorian summer like you wouldn't believe. And some sensational tasting specimens!
We've cloned a few of these beautiful mushrooms and it will be interesting to see how Stropharia rugosoannulata gembrookii performs in grow experiments.
Dinner was sensational!!
