adding honey
    #1654766 - 06/22/03 11:21 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Has anyone here tried dissolving a bit of honey in the water used in making the pf cakes. I was just curious as to whether this would promote faster mycelium growth since it seems that alot of people start spores or clone mushrooms in a combination of water and honey. anyone?

I dissagree, I dont believe that honey is an anti bacterial, in fact they say not to give it too infants because of the types of bacteria it has in it. I mean come on, its basically bee saliva.

"I celebrate the Earth, my home, my mother, my grave, and as long as men are Man they must, if they would preserve the integrated being, do the same---[and preserve]--this rank casual hungry smelly sweaty lusting transitory body, my oozy pulpy liquid-bag-swollen body, bones, blood, hair glands, my bejeweled sex; I love and celebrate it all.  never to let men forget that they are animals as much as gods---that is one thing I shall say."

Honey is only antibacterial in normal concentrations. It loses it's antibacterial properties when diluted.

I've added small amounts of honey dissolved in water to substrate mixes before.

Never noticed any difference.
