growing the stones

My friend has a colonized jar of tampanensis. He wants to harvest the larger stones and take any small ones and use them for innoculation of some additional jars. He is thinking of washing the small ones in hydrogen peroxide before using them. Will this work?  Can he change the substrate from rye to popcorn?  Can he use mycelia for innoculation as well as the sclerotia? Thank you very much for any help that you can offer. :grin:

Yes to all except the popcorn. The grain size and consistancy of popcorn is probably not very good for tamps. You could always test it out though.

Good luck!

I have seen Mexicana grown on corn... in a thread at the Mycotopia forums, Tampenisis should do fine. The problem was, it was hard to separate the corn from the stones...

I recomend millet, wbs, or rye grass (regular old lawn seed) seed. Stones are easily harvested from those substrates.
