Grow Your Own Halloween Glow In the Dark Mushrooms

After a summer that was swept away with book deadlines, I’m trying to embrace the joys of the fall season as much as possible.  It is my favorite time of year and so I am trying to fill it with new projects to refresh my depleted creativity.

Unfortunately I think I am a couple of weeks late on getting my own halloween crop of foxfire started in time for later this month  — but I am nonetheless totally blown away by glow in the dark mushrooms.

Wouldn’t it be fun to decorate with lots of logs inoculated with these guys (Panellus stipticus)?

You can buy pre-inocualted logs from Forest Organics on ebay.

  1. Oh, YES! I’ve been looking for a source of bioluminescent mushrooms/spawn! Now to scurry off to see if these are hardy here- I want to line my paths with them!
