use of natural antibiotics
    #1043814 - 11/11/02 04:43 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

as an unfortunate result of some poor quality spore syringes, i have a large collection of jars in which i have possibly the finest crop of mold that i have ever cultivated. :mad:

having read somewhere that mushroom mycelium are unable or unwilling to recolonize a substrate that is allready taken over by mycelium of the same specie,  even if that mycelium is dead.  it occurs to me that this is probably the resuslt of some natural antibiotic.

i propose to do an experiment, in which i take jars filled with mold of various species, and resterilize them.

my hypothesis is that the pennicilin like antibiotics may keep molds from being able to take over, and may allow mushroom mycelium to safely colonize, even with molds present.

possible interveining variables include that the antibiotics may not survive the sterilization process, and that the mushroom mycelium may not be able to grow in the antibiotic environment.

i'm taking suggestions as to what proceedure to use to sterilize, and would like to hear from others who have tried similar experiments.

interesting, it sounds like it could work. I'm anxious to see results. I did something similar with agar (contaminates got into a sealed jar of it, because a friend opened it, i then resterilized), and have had good luck spores germinating from wild prints, with no contaminates. Could be coincidence, or not.. The mold I saw was not really moldlike, more of a flat pink layer. No texture. but very pink.
