The Erythritol experiment. * 1
    #27293298 - 05/04/21 04:58 AM (2 days, 3 hours ago)

I have come across a research paper that mentioned how erythritol affected fruiting body size and germination rate in plants, see:

Growth acceleration of plants and mushroom by erythritol

After doing a search I was surprised that from the vast knowledge on here no one gave this a go before.

Since I have 5kg of the stuff at home I thought I would give it a try on a cube run.

First of all the method is not scientific in any way as the sample size is 1 for each variation but here is what I have used:

  • Inoculated 4 bags of grain at around 1.3kg/bag wet grain from the same Golden Teacher liquid inoculate.
  • Prepared 3 tubs total
  • Tub #1 (Control): 1.5 grain bag, 250gr dry coco coir + 1000ml water
  • Tub #2 (0.15% Erythritol): 1.5 grain bag, 250gr dry coco coir + 1000ml water + 1.5gr Erythritol
  • Tub #3 (1% Erythritol):1 grain bag, 500gr dry coco coir + 2000ml water + 10gr Erythritol


You will note that Tub #3 has a higher coir to grain ratio (more than double) than the others which will also affect the result.

3 Pics below show the current state after 3 days.

Edit: Pic 3 should say "Tub #3" not 2

Interesting, thanks OP. Do report back when they fruit, perhaps the real differences will come then. Eagerly awaiting.
I also wonder how important it is to properly mix in the erythritol into the substrate or what the proper method is, as theres so little of it compared to everything else

Will do, if anything happens at all. Also it's not mixed in dry, it's first dissolved in the water and then poored over the dry coir. From a mineral supplement point of view that can be quite high if expressed in PPM, ie 1500ppm (0.15%) and 10000ppm (1%).

:popcorn:

Did you use an isolated strain? Or just MS -> LC?

MS --> Agar --> Liquid Inoculate
