honey water tek with mexicana A
    #1238542 - 01/22/03 03:52 AM (21 years, 4 months ago)

I couldn't seem to find any discussions on this so I'm bringing it up here. Has anyone had success with mexicana a in honey water tek. I haven't tried it myself yet but was planning to tonight, figured I'd get some input before I wasted any spores. So anyone have success with this? Success with similar tek using different formulas? Please share. I'm just trying to think up ideas to speed up germination of mex a... straight spore to grain makes the first two weeks agonizing. G2G works really well for this but I prefer to wait till after my stones have formed and transfer the scraps. Anyway please share your experiences if you have any.

A friend tried honeywater without success. He's an experienced grower. I'm seriously thinking about kayro/ny. I've had great success with EQ's, got 60 qts from one syringe and still have some left. I also wish I knew if anyone had success before I burn a syringe.

GUYS GUYS GUYS,

I'm not sure about mexicana spores, although I don't see why it wouldn't work.

BUT, If you want a liquid substrate, TRY detroze water. That's just dextrose(corn sugar, not syrup.) in water. You can get this from a brewery store for dirt cheap. The results I saw on Dextrose water were amazing, after 1 day mycellium was abundant.

Dextrose (also known as glucose) is a monosaccharide or simple sugar that is about 20% less sweet compared to cane sugar. It is derived entirely from corn, is low-cost, and contains no fructose or lactose.

Here is a link for dextrose, or buy it at your local Brewere Store

Contaminants quickly spread right through the entire water mix. just use agar - that way you can isolate and avoid contams.

Honey is dextros sugar right?So if its not working out in honey water dextros wont be much different i would think.
Though it is refined so could be cleaner.But then honey has some antibacterial propertys i think.

Go with agar :smile:

I recently tried Mazatapec in Honey, Dex, PD, PDY and Rye D.

Only got responce in Dex. Thin and short growth. Slow to colonize on transferr to Rye. Have found Mexicans to be slow in most circumstances, but worth the wait.

Peace.

i had success with mex a in water with 4% glucose and 1% peptone. do some more searches. mex a is so expensive most people use liquid innocs. you can squirt a nice 50ml syringe into a bag of rice and get quick colonisation
