Morels for Fire Recovery

Morels for Fire Recovery Outlined on pg 268, Mycelium Running
Black morels are an excellent choice for restoring land after fire, as the optimal growing conditions for morels are post fire landscape.  Paul Stamets outlines techniques in Mycelium Running which show the use of a freshly burned fire pit for a spawn bed.  Along with burnt wood chunks and morel sawdust, native grasses are used, which help to shelter the mycelium. The morel mycelium creates a fungal network to transfer information, hold water and nutrients on the roots of the grasses, as well as helps to build the duff layer of soil. Once the mycelium of one patch reaches another and spores are introduced; with the perfect oxygen, shade, water, and nutrients, you will see fruits!
