Weird thing with honeywater
    #1956019 - 09/27/03 12:58 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

After 2 attempts and not one growth of mycelium, I decided to do a liquid culture. First I used karo syrup, and minimal mycelium grew. Then I tried honey, and that seemed to work great. I used 100ml of water, and about a teaspoon of honey. Steam-Steri'd it for 20 minutes, let it cool over night. Injected with 1 whole syringe of pink buffalo spores...yep 1 whole syringe im gettin desperate for results :smile:
2 days later, massive amounts of mycelium appears. I am overjoyed. I immediatly prepare another jar of honeywater to make more mycelium. Same procedure as the last one, except I didnt get to innoculate until 2 days later. I come back to innoculate the second jar, and theres mycelium already in it!!! Are these foreign spores that survived the steam-steri? Would that mean my first jar is most likely not the kind of mycelia i want?

The wax and protein in honey separate when it is PC'd. This makes for some clear/white, floating objects in the water, even before inoculation. Some people suggest using Karo instead of Honey to solve this problem. Karo is clear and doean't break up when heated.

If you are worried, give the jar a couple more days and see if the impurities grow. Otherwise, go ahead and inoculate.
