Sterile shop bought shrooms?
    #1186534 - 01/03/03 06:28 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I've tryed on 4 different occasions to get prints
from shop bought shiitake and Pleurotus mushrooms
only to find nothing on the glass plates?

Does anyone know if this is due to sterile cloning
or the refrigeration for shipping?Also wondered
if they use any gasses to keep the mushrooms fresher
and weather this has anything to do with things?

Or just unlucky?  :confused:

That's interesting. Try to wait longer and to place some water on the mushrooms.
They could be really sterile. Sterile (sporeless) strains are being developed because they preserve longer and don't cause respiratory problems for people working in grow rooms.

Shiitake's are often harvested before they reach the sporulation stage. I know I generally harvest mine before they're able to generate a print.

You should have better luck with oysters, though. Although it's also possible for those to get picked before they start dropping spores, too.

As for keeping mushrooms fresh during transport etc., the innovation is microporus film packaging.

So i suppose my best option is to
clone them on peroxidated agar?
How fresh must material be for this
do you think.

You can probably encourage anything you get in the grocery store to clone.....

You can dry out something like a shiitake block until its bone dry and still bring it back to life. Mycelium is quite ressiliant.
