Have y'all seen these from Fungi Perfecti?


MycoSpored Oils^(TM)
We offer unique blends of spored oils, one for decomposing stumps of 
conifers and one for hardwoods. These oils are designed as 
environmentally friendly, biodegradable lubricants for chain-saws and 
other wood cutting tools (dilute 1:10 with canola oil for best results). 
As the wood is being cut, the spore-mass infused oil disperses mushroom 
spores into the cut faces of wood, and upon germination of spores 
accelerate the decomposition of stumps and brush. Stamets says, "Here is 
an alternative for reducing fuel load in the forest to prevent forest 
fires--don't rob the carbon bank by removing litter--saprophytize with 
gourmet and medicinal fungi!"

Pearl Oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus).
