using bamboo in master slants???
    #11797796 - 01/09/10 08:07 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I cant find tongue depressors to cut up for my master slants I am making...but I do have a lot of bamboo skewers here.  Will bamboo skewers  work? I know pine is out of the question, and all the popsicle sticks I see are pine.

The popcicle sticks I get from my local craft store JoAnn's are hardwood(I'm almost 100% sure)and work great in my slants.

Search for roger rabbit and master slants. You should be able to find your answer.

Basically the mycelium permeates the stick and is able to survive for longer than the mycelium on the agar. It provides a protective barrier from outside elements and disturbance. Its like a fail safe for your culture in case the agar dries up.

These are not hardwood sticks and the oyster run through them. I use these after inoculating them to slip behind the bark of freshly fallen willow trees in hopes to obtain fruits the next year.

I use 50X150mm test tubes and put a hydrated popcicle stick in it. Then I use a pipetter you could just as easily use a syringe to put 20cc in the tube with stick. PC the tubes in a TT rack when finished lay the rack with the test tubes down at roughly 15 degrees. You dont want the agar to go past the lip on the cap side. Let them cool and your done. I usually do 50 at a time so they'll always be ready.

Gotcha'.

Did you slip them behind the bark this fall?

Forgive the questions. I'm just not sure of the process and find it interesting. :smile:

Pine will work once it's been kiln dried.  It's fresh pine logs which have anti-fungal properties that mycelium doesn't appreciate.  I doubt the pine will last long in a slant, but time will tell.  If it lasts a year, you should be making new ones by then anyway.

Yes, and GPS'd the trees so I could come back to them next year. If it works well it will be a very easy way to make inoculation media that is easy to make and easy to apply other than using spores.


Process is simple. Just get a pot of boiling water going and throw the sticks in for about a half hour. Cool them. Poke a shitload of them into your fruiting block or bag. Wait 5 to 10 days and then remove and store in a plastic container with a moistened piece of cardboard or paper towel. Take  during hikes to inoculate freshly fallen trees. I also look for those  erosion control rice straw thingamabobers (the name escapes me) and poke all I have left after a hike into them. Always worth trying new things!!

Test tubes are from Discountvials.com  I will double check but I think my sticks are hardwood but Lipa stopped by yesterday and he feels they're pine. I'll find out, anyway they work great for me. Got something to trade I'll send you one. I have numerous Genera stored this way.

So what do you think about using bamboo? I have access tons of coffee stirrer sticks made from bamboo at my job. Will this suffice for a master slant?
