Storing cakes in incubator not a fridge?
    #1980210 - 10/05/03 01:22 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

My friend has a bunch of cakes which are pretty much 100% but he won't be able to fruit them for 1-3 weeks because the terrarium is full. I know fridge storage is the way to go but he can't really do this.

Can they just sit un-monitored in the incubator for a few weeks? Maybe unplug the aqaurium heater to lower the temp?

Much thanks...

They will continue eating up nutrients if stored in incubator or room temp, which could effect fruitbody output. I've had some sit around a month with no problems. Though these were grain for spawn not cakes.
Someone else will probably have better answers.

Keep them in the dark.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.
