Date observed:- 6th March 2003 Habitat:- Beech log Location:- Hendre Berfedd Scale:- x 1.5 Comments:- Three years after I injected this log with spawn from a kit the first fruiting body appeared. On the 18th March it was 15mm wide and frozen solid. Air temperature that day was -4 and that was after a whole week of sub zero temperatures. While I was on holiday the weather improved and so did the fruiting body having expanded to 65mm and still not quite mature.
