growing Mexicana A(the stones)
    #2430648 - 03/14/04 08:54 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

heman has been looking into this mushroom for a little while now. From what he has read it is different from cubies so heman is trying to gather some info on them(i.e. growing cond. and what they prefer to grow on). heman was going to get a couple of myco bags but is unsure which bag this mushroom would prefer. if anyone has any exp with this strain please post what you know and you exp. with them. also heman is in the market for spores for this strain so if any one knows a vendor here that stocks them gimme a heads up. thnx in advance-LJ

Mexacana A produces the largest stones.
It has been said that rye grass seed producess the largest stones for substrate but some people have been doing WBS and having the same results
heres a link to make your own mycobags

The Mex B strain is supposedly easier to get to fruit then the Mex A strand, which is primarily a sclerotia producer. My friend can't wait to get his mex B print, should be here any day now...
Mycobag sells a "sclerotia bag" but i dunno what the ingredients are. Prob just rye grass.

so A produces the sclerotia? and B produces fruits? these must be cased, correct? no chance of fruiting straight from cakes?

A can produce fruits and B can produce sclerotia... but they are better the other way around.

so than if you just want them to produce slcerotia you leave them in the jars. you you drop the temp like you normaly would after they get done colonizing or what.I just want sclerotia out of this if i do try it out, it is kinda a fun project for somthing different. thnx for everone's help.

Here's a link to my friend, Don Quixote's grow log... it is still in progress.

It has every other link you may need.

It is hard to find a lot of info on sclerotia... primarily because they are easy to grow invitro and they don't photograph as well as mushrooms.

Sclerotia sure tastes better than sclerotia though...

i started reading his log and in all honesty that is kinda what made me wait to try this strain out, if you get the chance to talk to him tell him i hope my work turns out half as good as his.  :gd_icon:

If you can steralize a jar, I'm sure you will do fine. Sclerotia is so easy.

Don has started some casings. He wants prints.

If you have a good wbs or millet tek... use that. If sterility is an issue, use rye grass seed.

Millet seems better, if it stays contam free. Rye grass seed is easier to steralize well.
