liquid dex (too much dex?)
    #2797578 - 06/16/04 02:36 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I made a dextrose liquid mycelium jar, and there is growth, but I'm sure I used a bit too much dextrose, the jar is definately not clear, its not white or anything either. but definately not clear.

can this amount of dextrose be bad for the mycelium? will the liquid mycelium be fine to use?

if there is growth, then there's nothing else to worry about except for contamination.

what was the ratio of water to dextrose that you used?

As long as you see no contams you should be ok.

I use 2 teaspoons to every 100ml of water,but if I plan on keeping it for a long time I will add a little more karo,as the mycelium needs food to live.The more food the longer it will survive.
