Which mycobag flavor?
    #2945131 - 07/30/04 04:13 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I am trying to decide on which myco bag flavor to go with. I am debating between grain, straw, sclerotia, rye, straw, and corn. I plan on inoculating with a spore syringe, and casing them when it comes time to fruit. Some recommendations or experience would be greatly appreciated.

Also, what is sclerotia? I've never heard of it before.

How fast does the straw fully colonize, since it is being inoculated with spores as opposed to spawn?

Thanks in advance for any reply.

If you are ordering multiple bags, I'd try and see if they would send you a variety and see what you like best. Me I am partial to the grain mycobags, particularly popcorn, but any should do fine.

I was planning on ordering no more than 2 bags, since space is limited.

Also, do you think it's worth it to go with a larger 4lb bag, since you get more substrate for the money, but it would most likely take longer to fully colonize, right?

I'm pretty sure that if you contact MycoBag customer service they'd be happy to arrange a "grab bag" sample for you. We're also thinking about adding this as a permanent item to their shopping cart for those that want to give it a try in the future.

Sclerotia are hard, tuber like growths that form directly on substrate in-vitro, and sometimes in casing layers. It is a super dense form of mycelium built up as a survival mechanism for some mushroom species. Most notably are some active mushroom species like Psilocybe tampanensis and Psilocybe mexicana. These two produce sclerotia which is commonly referred to as "Philosopher Stones" or "Magic Truffles" in Holland smart shops.

Straw bags really aren't recommended for direct spore injection. For your needs I would check out the simple Grian Based bag as mentioned above, or give the new "Corn-E-Morphs" a try.
