home made potato Dextrose

i couldnt search, and i didnt see it in the FAQ's, so i figure i'd post it here. A Way to make your own Potato Dextrose. works wonders for liquid cultures. I havent tried any agar cultures, but it would probly bump just as good.

here's how it is. take 400 Grams Old potatoes (about 4 medium sized potatoes) Avoid new one's.
Wash and slice the potatoes thin. Boil with 2quarts Water for 1 hour. Let cool for awhile, then pour the water into a quart jar. try to avoid all the chunks as possible. Then filter the potato water again thru a rag.

Take the potato water (about 3/4 quart) and put equal parts in 2 quarts. Fill the rest of the way with regular water.

Sterilize as usual. innoculate like usual.

Liquid cultures have shown TONS of growth by the end of one day. by the end of the second day thier's a crazy amount of growth.

I think i posted something on this months ago but i didnt filter it thru a rag then, and thier were chunks of potato floating around. Try it and see how it works for yourself

Ha, I just made some of this not 5 minutes ago.  :grin:

I just pour in a bunch of potato flakes, boil, then strain through a coffee filter to get the little bits out. Works fine for me.

ya, the faq's are all whack. hard navigaion. it used to be simplier. It took me 5 minutes to find the mycelium cultures section. i clicked on the Faq, then Mushroom cultivation Faq, then realized that you need to go up a level to growing mushrooms. then go to 'tips and tricks". it's pretty whack that thier's no liquid cultures in the faq.. Or is there?

ya, and i wasn't looking for agar, and that's not a recipe for a liquid culture.

The only difference is that there is is that there is no agar needed for liquid culture.

Btw, liquid culture is only something you should attempt if you can assure really good sterile conditions.
Otherwise you will get contaminates in the liquid culture and you wan?t see them.

Liquid culture is not something newbies should use, IMO.

Seems like dropping a chunk of freshly colonized cake into peroxidated liquid culture would be an easy way to get some going.

>How would you order the sections?

man, that's a tough one. cant think of anything off the top of my head, but it's just a little wierd. maybe it would be easier if under a catagory, you listed what sub-catagories were underneath, instead of a fancy description (or with a description)

maybe something like a branched list. like for example

Cultivation Tek's
Basic Cultivation
Intermediat Cultivation
Advanced Cultivation
Tips and tricks
Mushroom Cult Faq
Terrarium Setup
etc.

intermediat for stuff like casing, and printing/syringe making. i was about to suggest that casing go in the basic, but it seems that the shroomery put only cakes in the basic cult for a reason. i mean, c'mon, casing isn't quite advanced (hard) and it is quite basic (it is, but newbies should wait untill they are advised to do so)

ok, so i guess i could think of something.

i forgot to add, Why is it that the link to "entrance" and "main Index" are the same?.. seems to me like the one to "entrance" should navigate the user to the entrance (shroomery.org)
