Observation 142827: Ganoderma oregonense Murrill

All specimens collected within feet of each other on a single log. Collected from a Hemlock log inoculated two seasons ago. All G.oregonense/G.tsugae(fresh stem butt) specimens were transplanted from Mora campground near Rialto beach in summer 2011(where we harvest lbs of Reishi). This season we finally saw multiple fresh fruiting bodies from the fallen Western hemlock log here on 17th Ave trail.

We cut deep holes in the log and simply stuffed the large, fresh stems of multiple specimens into the inner pith and covered wounds with soil and moss. Remarkably, the log was already prolifically fruiting G.applanatum in 2011 when we attempted the inoculation- two years later there are more varnish conks than artist conks. Apparently this method is possible-from an anecdotal perspective. Inoculated in late August 2011- all stems and fruit bodies were harvested near Rialto beach on the northwest tip of the Olympic peninsula and brought here to 17th. and mix road in Olympia, WA to be embedded into an already rotting, parasitized Western hemlock log.

Temp: upper 70’s.
