Problems germinating Azure spores...
    #15128236 - 09/24/11 05:59 PM (9 years, 7 months ago)

Howdy,

I purchased Ps. Azurescens spore syringes from two separate vendors this summer, and tried to germinate both of them on sterilized cardboard discs.  I got high germination rates, but all of the growth was cottony / tomentose, and grew extremely slow.

So for those of you trying to do outdoor azure grows, and starting with germinating spores / finding isolates, do you often find cottony / tomentose growth, or have you been able to find good, aggressively rhizomorphic sectors?

I ask because, having just seen cottony growth, I recall seeing pictures of very ropy / stringy rhizomorphs in Paul Stamet's grow guide books, so I figured, after about two dozen attempts on cardboard, I would have seen at least one rhizomorphic sector.  But I didn't see any. :frown:

Is it possible I just got a really old syringe?  Is it possible that the azure strain likes the cardboard so much that it doesn't have to convert to rhizomorphic growth patterns?  Any thoughts or recommendations? 

Thx,

OS.
