After dreaming about doing the rice flour cake method with some success, swim decided to dream about trying some of those newfangled myco bags. 2 bags were injected (following proper sterilization procedures) with B+ and placed over a heating pad on a low setting at approx. 85 degrees. Weeks went by. Nothing. Bags were injected with sterilized distilled water. More weeks. Nothing.

2 more bags were purchased, injected with another syringe. Again, weeks later, nothing at all.

Anyone have any luck with these things? Swim said he is considering reverting to rice cakes since a) it's cheaper and b) they work.

Don't know , newer tried....
But it's a damm good idea to stick with PF, and than graduate to casings :smile:
85 degrees sounds a bit high.... You might wona turn it down to 80....
Just an opinion.....
Good luck

no experience with the bags but what i've read tends to be too variable for me to mess with. if you decide to go back to cakes, then try casing your cakes. it's way easy, requires less humidity and will make you very happy.

how many weeks passed? Where did you inject into the substrate? Did you shake up the syringes before you injected? Where did you get the syringes from? Do you see condensation of water inside the bag? What strain? 85 degrees is perfect.

I've had luck, over 40 grams dry from just 1 bag.

yea, the info is on the $...85degrees does sound good...i got my bags & syringe from SporeWorks and they worked fine. i also used a heating pad. stupid question, but were they in the dark? it took about 2 weeks to see ANY mycellium growing in my bags, but i also injected directly into the substrate...where did you inject w/your bags, & did they have a "self healing injector site?" if you went through SporeWorks, contact them & tell them what happened, they should help you out with new stuff...
