Notes: All images taken around one single, large Douglas fir tree(approximately 10 foot radius).
Within 2 to 3 months of the candy cane flowers maturity, the plants will blacken and die, followed by the canopy floor blooming spores and becoming proliferated with fresh Matsutake buttons. This plant is a parasite of the America Matsutake (Tricholoma magnivelare) and therefore is dependent on its mycelium for food. Wherever you find candy cane in the summer- you will no doubt find Matsies in the Fall.
Great way to monitor the coming season ;-)
Temp: low 80’s.
