This is what I did...
    #1635271 - 06/15/03 04:53 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I was using a grow kit originally, but when I got to the spawning phase (where the mycelium is supposed to totally cover a test tube with a grain mixture in it), the mycelium seemed to stop growing. Confused and disappointed I asked what do do on this forum. I was informed that the Tek way is a much better alternative to the Homestead method, I originally assumed using a kit would be simplier.  :tongue: . I didn't want to give up on what I had already started (I didn't have any spore syringes and since it wasn't contaminated or anything) so I transferred the small amount of mycelium that had begun in the test tubes into a couple of jars with the standard mixture of vermaculite and brown rice flour. I also transferred it into some birdseed/whole bran filled jars too, to try and stimulate growth. Do you think that this will work? Will the mycelium start to grow in these jars? What should I do to help them along? What should I avoid?
Thank you.  :grin:

Are you serious? It won't work in the vermaculite/rice flour (I assume this is brf jar)? How should the grain be prepared? I hope I did it correctly, it would be a shame to lose everything now!
(I do still have a sporeprint, could I make use of that?)

you need a multi point injection for brf jar so it will colonize faster placing some grain in there would take months if at all.... contams would have there way with this be4 your network would be complete

grain to grain transfer should work if you sterilized it corectly give it a good shake in few day watch for smells and hopefully you have a filter on your grain jars for air exchange

What kind of filter are we talking about here?
How much grain should be put in the jars? Fill it up almost?

Interestingly enough, the grain I put in the brf jar seems to be colonizing very quickly, it's even taking the vermaculite/brf mixture.
