How do you inoculate a quart sized grain jar?
    #1680178 - 07/02/03 01:32 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

AFOAF just finished up his first flush of shrooms, and isn't a big fan of cloning (tried it, just won't work for him).

If he fills up some grain jars 2/3 full with wbs, could he use spores to inoculate em? I know it won't be as fruitful a substrain as you can get if you clone, but i don't think I care much. I think once one jar is done is G2G time.

Check out these results with WBS and honey tek, 2 days after innoculation. Honey tek is by far the way to go (or some form of liquid mycelium). Shake the jars right after PCing and then right after innoculation works fantastic!



Spores take much longer, almost a week and a half to get there. But they work.

Yea you can use spores. Just use a syringe and squirt 3-4cc's solution around the rim of the jar. G2G Is the way to go

Hey resin, how do you get G2G to spread out as well as liquid mycelium culture? Even shaking the shit out of the jar only results in a small number of innoculation points, no? AFOAF had these popcorn jars, and no matter how much he shook, they didn't colonize, while a honey tek innoculation to the same batch of popcorn tore through it in four days.

Inoculate with spores/liquid mycelium/mycelium culture, shake and wait a few days. Shake again, and wait another few days. You'll get near 100% colonization by then.

Fastest will be with a culture though, rhizomorphic growth tears through substrate like butta.

Yeah it does. I have a friend who has been doing popcorn, it takes him about 2 weeks to 100% colonization going from strait spores. That's still a shitload faster than PF cakes, and is pretty awesome in my friends opinion.

One way to make the G2G a little more efficient, is to dump the first grain jar (the master) into a gallon baggie and crumble it really fine. Allow it to sit a few days to recover, and then proceed to inoculate the other jars. This seems to work fine for me. The smaller grains promote growth from more sites, and the recovery time "wakes up" the spawn.

Ok, so here's the plan.

I want to get spores, waste maybe 6cc per jar, do 2 jars, and then when those babies colonize pull a g2g and 0wn up those quarts.

I have some pf-cakes in my terrarium right now, but they've been spored all over. They still produce mushrooms though.Could I take this cake, crumble it in a baggie, and then do G2G? Would the oven tek be good to use for that?

I would not use a crumbled up PF Cake for G2G unless just to say what da phuk. Too much possibility to contaminate fresh grain. Why not just start off with a fresh quart of grain or popcorn and inject those ??? :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:
