    Hello for a while now I been planing to go out in the forest and dig up a whole mycelium.

    I live in Sweden on the country side so it's going to be quite easy finding one.
    I have choosed "pinesopp" dont know the real english name for it, but it needs pine roots to live, so im going to take a 6 year old pine as well that I will turn in to a bonzai tree.

    Theoretical this sounds very easy, but in practice its going to be hard.
    So I ask does anyone have any experiance with growing mycelium?

    I want to keep it for many years and im going to try and study it through
    "uvsafe glas", so it want get harmed.
    I have a glas container that I have half coverd with uv safe film.

    I'm definately no expert, but I suggest growing it in conditions that mimmic it's natural habitat.

    There is no UV-safe glass on the tree he was growing on, so why need it now?

    I think if just you give it sufficient nutrients, water, keep the air around it humid enough and give it the same light you would give it's host plant (the bonsai IIRC).
    After all, that's how it would be in nature right?


    Like I said, I'm no biologist by education, but in science as a whole I've noticed it's often sufficient to keep it simple. only expand your options when simple doesn't work.
