pan cyan first try (failed)
    #1700148 - 07/09/03 05:52 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

This is my first try with a species of fungus other than ps. cubensis. if it's successful, i'm away to try plenty of others. wish me luck  :heartpump:

19 June - poured 5 half-jarsfuls of dry wild birdseed into pillowcase. soaked pillowcase in saucepan of water. changed water three times altogether. soaked 24h. then hung pillowcase up to drain (corner downwards) for 2 hours, so there's no dripping at all.



20 June - loaded wbs into jars - now each approx two-thirds-full. put square of tyvek on top, and added lids (one half-inch hole and one teeny injection hole, though i'm not using the injection hole this time, as i have agar from a friend). loaded into pressure cooker, and cooked 15psi for 90 mins. cooled overnight, in the unopened pc.







24 June - i'd been supplied with cyan mycelium on an agar plate, and agar pieces in ziplock bags: cleaned hands, donned mask, cleaned jars, loosened jar lids, heated then swabbed tweezers, opened myc bag, removed lid, tweezed out myc on agar sliver, flicked / knocked into jar, replaced lid. repeated x 4. total 5 jars inoculated with panaeolus cyanascens.





28 June - jars growing I think (?) ? looks like the kind of thing I?d have chucked if this was cubensis: tiny white dots, thickening slightly but still new to me??. I expect it to turn green at any moment!

2 July ? 3 jars ? contaminated, chucked out: - probable wet spot?

  :frown:  :confused:

3 July - 3 new jarfuls soaked, pced, inoculated more carefully, with pieces freshly cut from the plate this time.

9 July - good news - the new ones (and 2 of the originals) are now growing along nicely. here they are today. you can see a sliver of agar in the top pic:

  :grin:

:grin: :grin:

  :grin: :grin: :grin:

that's it so far. sorry to leave you high and dry without fruit shots. i plan to wait until a week after full colonisation, then pasteurise some straw/poo (90%:10%) and  spawn it in.  :nut:

will post updates. sorry to put a pic on each line, i'll redo it if the codemasters fix a software bug that means i have no choice.

sk :kiss:

Geez, that mycelium looks really white!

In all my experiments with Panaeolus species, I've found that the mycelium is more gray and whispy, looks somewhat similar to cobweb.

I've had bad experiences with shaking the this mycelium as well. I wouldn't recommend that. It will die and contaminate.

Very good luck to you shirley. :smile:

air exchange, and temp.

you will likely need to heat your fruiting chamber. to 88deg or so.

and cube air exchange is NOT sufficient.

you will definantly need to fan very often, or automate.

You would say that fruiting temps are in the high 80's!? Whoa.

Doesn't the mushroom cultivator say high 70's?

thank you all for your too-kind and unwarranted words of encouragement  :smile:  (/me does a midair backflip and flushes red)

i'm a newbie too, i just love this hobby to pieces, and get a real buzz from sharing my newly-learned tips, and showing off my successes  :laugh:
i have plenty failures, too, but i don't post those so often  :tongue: :noway: always happy to help if i can, on the boards or by pm.

i feel compelled to give updates even when not much is happening, so here's the first:

1. 2 jars, inoculated from dodgy wedges 24/06:
the one on the right was shaken, and never recovered. lesson learned #1 ! still not sure if these will progress to full colonisation.

2. 3 jars, inoculated from fresh plate wedges 3/07:   :smile: these look like they'll make it to stage 2

3. a cubensis jar (creeper) at 99%, for comparison: - whiter, thicker, more rhizomorphic (rope-like tendrils)

i'm left a little confused as to fruiting temps, though that is still a way off. i had thought that 75-80 would be sufficient. i also have no idea as to any differences expected in spawn run time, prepinning time etc, but what the hell: THAT is the funnest part of this hobby, the steep bit of the learning curve when it's all new and exciting.

pan cyan growlog - ?lipstick mould? [Re: m0rb]
    #1732209 - 07/20/03 02:06 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

20 july update - the 2 jars (inoculated 26 june, one shaken) are continuing as they were. the shaken one looks stalled and i've given up on it. the other one continues to advance. i think the wbs was a little dry, hence the slow progress.

>>>>>>>>>>>

the 3 others (inoculated 3 july) are munching slowly:

if they were cubes i'd shake to speed em up, but i'm gonna just wait it out. however,  :confused: is this lipstick mould i'm seeing? all three opf these have a pale pinkish tinge. could it be from the 'red bombs' (red millet) that fugu talks about, or does it look bad?




it's a very pale pink, but it's pink nonetheless - more so than comes out in these crappy webcam pictures. i'm gonna stick these last two in the contam forum, in case it triggers somebody's memory there too.

sk :blush:

I've seen a similar PINK experience with pans in birdseed. I wasn't sure what it was so I threw them out. get a more experienced answer before you do so. I was told it was a nasty bacteria. Anything that stains pink has to be pretty bad, but I think your right on the money with the dye or the colors comming out.

harder to sterilize, high fat content and low nutritional value for the fungi.. its waste that also attracts bacteria- i made the mistake of using it alone one time =\

im a newbie and i probably would just screw up a pan grow. But wouldn't you think rye berries would work well with the pans? the suspense of this grow is killing me. i wish joushua would try these too.
