can i clone from storebought shrooms?
    #2512476 - 04/01/04 11:28 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I prepared soem agar the other day and i was shoping last night and saw oyster, shitake,button and portabello shrooms so i took one of each. I came home and quickly cloned them onto the agar. What are the chances of them growing? So far no growth after 24 hours.

that is how i've gotten a few of my cultures.

it works fine, but it's best to find out what day the shipment will be coming in, so you can get them as soon as they are put out on the rack. fresher is better.

I've heard that you couldn't clone Portabella's.

you can, it's better to clone baby bellas or criminis which are the same mushroom just younger

I've cloned crimini to agar to see if they would grow and they did. I used a piece of the cap. I haven't gone to grain. They grew pretty well on the agar though.
Let us know how it goes. Mine took a little longer to get started on the agar than other msuhrooms.

Ok i noticed weak mycllium growth out of all the clones besides the portabello and the oysters. I dint check on them today yet but hopefully it will start to grow onto the agar.

It took 5 or 6 days before I noticed any growth. It may take a while longer than you'd expect.

often you will have a cryptic bacterial contaminant hiding there and it will affect the patterns of growth - Enoki is a classic
there is also the issue of media strength and makeup

sometimes it takes 3 or 4 subs to clean it up

Do you know what kind of contamination that could be ? I had the problem with wild enoki and SRA. And I guess now that the Hypholoma capnoides might also suffer from this strange contamination. The mycelium grows very slow and dense and stops after some time.
