Paul Wheaton and Alex Ojeda continue reviewing Sepp Holzer‘s Permaculture, chapter 4, on cultivating mushrooms. Paul shares about symbiculture. Sepp mentions how Chernobyl affected his mushroom sales, and Alex talks about mycoremediation. Paul talks about Paul Stamets, and his ways fungi are saving the world. Sepp writes about the symbiotic nature of fungi helping other plants. Paul talks about innoculating logs with mushrooms. Since mushrooms take up harmful substances and retain them, you should not eat mushrooms grown on a tree close to a road, or straw grown using pesticides. In the long run, hardwood generally gives higher yields than softwood. Paul talks about using fresh wood, and starting your own spawn. Paul talks about finding morels. Sepp writes about bringing back dormant logs by soaking them and pounding or shaking them.
