Growing from dry mushrooms
    #2855508 - 07/04/04 05:05 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I've been looking forward to growing some cubes, but due to the laws in California ordering spores is out of the question. I have several dry mushrooms, which is basically my only way to start growing. The problem with these is that they have been handled by other people, so I'm not too confident about how clean they are. From what I gather, the best method to grow would be using agar, similar to this. I'm afraid that contamination with the original sample might prove to be a big problem. I'd just like to see if I can get a little input from you guys as to if this method would be the best, or something else would be better suited. Any help or comments are appreciated.

Dry mushrooms are dead and there won't be enough spores.

So what if the mushrooms are dead? There are still spores, isn't that all that matters? Sorry if I'm making stupid assumptions, but from what I remember in biology, it shouldn't matter whether the mushrooms are dead or alive, as long as there are some spores. The method I linked was not meant to innoculate jars or anything, simply to start getting some mycelium, so that I could grow from that later. Again, I'm sorry if my asuumptions are invalid. Thanks for the reply.

There will be a really small amount of spores and the few that would be there would be really contaminated. If there were a larger amount of spores you could try and germinate them on water agar, which would help to seperate them from all the other crap that's alive, but since there wouldn't be enough to do this there isn't much of a way. You could try, but with nutrient agar you'll probably just end up growing contaminants.

OK, thanks a lot for the great information. I guess there isn't a good way to start, other than with a spore print or syringe. Hopefully I can figure something out.

If i were you, I'd barter with another friend over state to just send you one. Either that, or drive out of state, set up a PO box, and then pick them up when sent.

u CAN use dried mushies to clone. u dont use their spores. u use tissue from the inside of the stem. Cut a piece with sterilized knife or something. It worked for me. i guess the water and nutrients just makes the mycelium get up and start kicking again. amazing.

According to Paul Stamets, fresh fruitbodies (still wet) really have to be less than 48 hours old to clone. Apparently, however, you've come up with some revolutionary way to clone *dried* fruitbodies. Care to explain?

Thanks for the link, however I am extremely skepticle about that thread. That's most likely contaminant mould or from mycelium from viable spores. I'll bump the thread back into AMC, however, for argument's sake.
