Honey tek trials - Growth or no?
    #2724936 - 05/24/04 11:20 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

About a week or so ago I knocked up a jar of sterilized honey water. For days all I saw was my black spores kickin it at the bottom of the jar. Two days ago I started to see white tissues growing around the bottom edge of the jar, but nothing like the colonization of some of the pics ive seen. What do you all think? Just give it more time or start up a karo tek? I think i might do the latter no matter.

Yea it looks exactly like that except without the carmalized honey, but you have a hell of a lot more growth.

Did you use an incubator?
How long did it take the jar to get like that?

Thanks!

WHAT IS THE DEAL ABOUT HONEY WATER? AS FAR AS ENOCULATING GRAIN AND SUCH, JUST USE MYCELIUM AND STERILIZED WATER.

Would you believe that I have already used that jar three times to make 6(20 cc)syringes that was really thick with mycelium and now the jar is growing enough for more syringes,I find that the honey adds more nutes to your substrate-but I only use grains and I find it much easier to use the honey/karo.

I've had that jar for almost a month now!
My incubator consists of> sitting them in my cabinets on the top shelf,I will take a pic of some awesome rhizo growth that results when you hit that sweet spot with the temperature,amazing!

^So did you just let the jar keep doing its thing or were there more spores injected to keep it producing? Fill me in! :smile:

I just didnt use it all,only what would make a good syringe or two,then let it grow some more.Wait untill there is substantial growth,make a couple more syringes,wait etc.,etc.,,.I kept it in the door of my fridge(not the freezer).So it would get a very light shaking everytime the door was opened,to stimulate growth.
I use organic honey and you can see the nutes disappearing because the color changes from gold to clear.I just catch it when I see it getting clear,I make a sterile 20cc syringe of more honey water and in a glovebox,I inject HW into jar.I have a tendacy to caramelize some of the honey,but,have found that it doesn't hurt anything other than your pride,except that,it may hide a contam,but,my sterile techniques are adequate.


:cool: :thumbup:

P.S. I only use the jars to get 8-20cc syringes,or four times in the jar.I know that sooner or later the mycelium will degrade and by that time the jar needs to be cleaned and sterilized anyway. :wink:
