Searching, ...
  • I am guessing that this facebook page for the group Pacific Northwest Mushroom and Identification Forum would be your best bet at quickly getting some decent feedback.
  • I found a lot of ads for molecular IDing mushrooms. Location of intended use was not obvious at that level. Regular updating of their search or compare algorhythm with more recent findings would be important.
  • Maybe contact the Pacific NW Research Station (part of the US Forest Service). They may not have a mycologist there, but they might be able to give you some direction for further inquiries.
  • You could peruse the OSU Forestry Dept (or whatever it is). That's where all the research in the state on forestry issues would be in Oregon. There would probably be a similar group somewhere in Washington State.

This was an especially brutal winter, and it doesn't seem to want to let go as the Spring so far has been rather cooler than usual.

But, there's hope in the air! Today, I spotted the first flowers blooming in my garden! Hooray!

I live in central Alaska so most growing is done indoors. In south central my Grandfather had a square mile of potatoes plus a few other veggies on the shore of Wasilla Lake. Summers in the 1950's were spent on the farm.
Indoor limits me to herbs and spices that last a while. Three months growing a root veggie gone in a single meal is counter productive. Although exotic cucumbers are a treat.
Very hot peppers work well, as do herbal teas. Cats get into catnip before it finishes growing. Lemongrass actually grows better outside.
The pictured plant has over 100 flower pods, not easily achievable outdoors.
More than 100 pods showing in this photo.JPG

My physics background came in extremely handy when buying the artificial lights, literally hundreds of choices. 90% could be eliminated just by understanding the specification sheets.

Sometimes things grow too well.
