Fruiting elm oysters in a terrarium?
    #2297691 - 02/03/04 04:37 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

Every time I have tried to fruit elm oysters in any enclosed space I get long thin fruits.

This even happened when I sat it in a garbage bag laying sideways with the opening propped open.

Has anybody else had problems with elms being super sensitive to being enclosed?

I'm having trouble with them now because winter humidity is so low (I think), but all I can really do is humidify the entire room or something.

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.

I've read that the asian fruit them in jars similar to enoki to elongate their stems. Maybe you should try, that would be easier than a more complicated setup.

How often did you open you terrarium? Maybe you could open it more often to increase air exchange - lower humidity is not such a problem with this species.

It stayed open all the time... on the bottom ov the side even, so there should not have been any pooling of CO2.

It was a sideways garbage bag, basicaly a humidity tent.
