Clitocybe nuda are less commonly cultivated than many other species of mushrooms in part because their yield can be a bit unpredictable. In their wild form, they push up from forest duff as temperatures start to dip below freezing, lilac beacons in a sea of brown. Their texture is silky and they make a great addition to soups, stews, or gumbos. Be careful to properly identify these mushrooms before consuming them though, as there are some poisonous purple mushrooms that can grow in similar habitats. Spore prints can be very helpful in distinguishing them from Cortinarius species of concern.
Depending on your conditions, the mycelium may be ready to fruit in 4-12 months. The ideal temperature range for this stage is between 40-70 degrees, and blewits need dips into below-freezing temperatures to cue mushroom formation. Often, this naturally happens in the fall after a full season of growing.
Recommended Substrates: Partially composted yard waste such as hardwood leaves, grass clippings, twigs and tree bark. Composted mixtures of manure and straw or agricultural byproducts.
Similar to almond agaricus, they like a complex material to grow on. Consider making a blend of semi-composted manure, spent mushroom blocks, leaf litter, sawdust, kitchen scraps, grass clippings, cereal straws, and agricultural byproducts like bean hulls, corn stalks, etc.. Use materials that are abundant and accessible in your area and avoid anything that’s potentially been sprayed by chemicals.
