Jars of sunflower!!
    #1225505 - 01/17/03 06:45 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Hello All!!

Since the arrival of popcorn, i've been looking at various possibilites ..

I did a search *( so don't flame me asking a previously asked question.. )

Sunflower seeds!! I've looked around, i have not found unsalted ones yet. But i'm sure that if one was to boil them for a while, strain, boil again, the salt would be washed away..

I figure that if white fuzz likes it soo much, mycelium will too!!

I've always left them mixed in with my WBS, and never had problems.. They are usually the first point of contam when you let the grain soak over night/more..

Has anyone here ever tried Straight Sunflower seeds? with or without the shells.?

I think the fat content is too high. Probably won't work.

yes, my understanding is that while leaving the sunflower seeds in the birdseed probably won't hurt, they don't help either and so some people pick them out. but only one way to know for sure!

The stuff that was in my mycobag had sunflower seed mixed with other seeds in it, the mycelium grew all around the shell, then penetradted the inside(I was curious to see).

Sunflower seeds are about 50% fat, ideally you want 0% fat.

I once tried inoculating a jar of ganja seeds just for a laugh and found that the fat content was too high.

The jars reached about 30% colonization and then stopped suddenly due to this..

:frown:

Oh well.

It was worth a try !  :grin:
