Agar to Rice flour substrates
    #1865922 - 08/30/03 03:58 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I have a few very successful agar mycelium growths and wonder if they can be transported to the rice flour jars? I haven't come across anyone who has done this method, but wonder if anyone in the forum has tried this or knows if this is possible with successful results?

Why not? I'd say go ahead. I'm surprised that no-one has ever written about this before, but I think it should work just fine!

If you are talking about agar wedge transfers to PF tek jars then no, the verm layer would be a problem.

You could omit the verm layer and filter the jars with a disk or Tyvek. You would have to perform the transfer in a sterile environment to avoid contamination. Be sure to leave some space at the top of the jar so you can shake it.

I'm not sure how well a BRF/verm substrate would shake, but it might work.

your agar in petri dishes? pour some sterile water in there, scrape some mycelium off the agar with a sterile scalpel, suck some of the mixture up into a sterile syringe. use THAT to innoculate your jars... BUT, maybe dilute what you get and make a couple more syringes first...
nope: never tried it, have read that you can do it...
let us know...
