philosopher's bag questions
    #1328267 - 02/23/03 09:21 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

2 weeks ago, i got some philosopher's bags. i mashed them up so they weren't solid blocks and i innoculated each with about 1.5 cc's of spore solution. yesterday, i checked on them... each one had only a two inch growth of mycelia under the injection port. they seem to be growing rather slow. when i went to mix in the mycelium that had grown to make it colonize faster, i noticed that small stones were already forming in it, despite the limited colonization. they were all packed pretty tighty into a box. i'm thinking that maybe they didn't have enough air. what conditions are they to be stored in? i moved them into a larger box and made the substrate more airy. hope that works.

My dog has a bunch of those sitting on the shelf in his closet.
As long as it stays semi cool 60's-low 70's ur good

After a couple months go back and the bags will be all deformed from stones forming.
The only thing I don't like about them is how long it takes for them to finish up.

I'd say wait 3 months instead of 2 you will see a big differance in yeild.

EDIT: These things are pretty slow so u might want to have some cubes going also.
They usually turn white then really start to produce stones. My dog only looks @ them 1 time a week because there so boring


You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
