Done sporulating(dead leading edge tissue at base of conk revealed) Agarikon in the knot of an otherwise healthy 200+ foot Douglas fir tree. Conk in situ was approximately 15 feet up the tree. Using a natural ladder method and a make shift spear I released the done sporulating Agarikon from the substrate.
Dense, hard, bitter flesh. Sampled inner tissue was still living where the tree lignin and original fruiting occurred. Cloned into sterile PDA using a newly discovered hydrogen peroxide assisted inoculation on 6/22/15. Updated images of slanted clones to come in a few weeks.
Sample elevation: 3400ft.
Temp: low 80’s.
