inoculating sawdust and/or woodchips (psylocibe cyanescens )
    #14527404 - 05/29/11 02:54 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hey guys, long time no see, I haven't been posting on the forums much lately due to some complications ( purchasing a new property, moving out, etc..)

however now, things have calmed down a bit and I'm ready to start growing SHROOMIES <3 <3 ... onmnomnomnom...

This year I am growing p. cyanescens and azurescens, which are both wood lovers and are both very potent species; however I have 1 question to ask this amazing comunity of talented and dedicated cultivators.

is it possible to inoculate saw-dust or finely ground woodchips directly from a spore syringe ? I've seen people using slices to inoculate wood, or literally just droping a couple of spores onto a piece of wood. However I have 2 syringes ready and need to inoculate some jars asap. I could do this the old fashioned way and inoculate grain, then from grain transfer to a wooden medium, then from wood medium to outdoor bed; however this has 2 downsides

1: there are too many inoculation steps, and I am runing late in the season for outdoor growing

2: it takes longer for the mycelium to colonize a new medium ( i.e takes longer for grain to colonzie wood, then for grain to colonize another batch of grain)

Due to the fact that I am runing late in the season due to moving to my new property ( a nice piece of land with lots of forest and a creek, perfect for outdoor mushies). I have to get htem outside asap.

I know about all the methods of colonizing pasteorized wood and transfers and changes in temperature needed to induce fruiting etc.... I have done tons of research on wodlovers, and would be happy to help out anyone in need. However all I need to know is if I could inoculate small shreded woodchips directly from a spore syringe rather then agar medium. I do not want to waste the 70$ I have just spent on the syringes x)......


p.s for anyone who saw cyanescens in the thread name and thought they could find something usefull, I will not let you down. Here are some very helpful links on wood-lovers:

From what I hear it's possible but very slow usually you start with grain spawn
