Innoculating Karo/Water Solution with Live Mycelium
    #3473942 - 12/10/04 01:20 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Do you think a karo/water solution (100ml H20 w/1tbsp Karo) could be inoculated easily with a small chunk of live mycelium, and how fast do you think it would be colonized? I'm hoping I could just save some large flakes of mycelium by tossing them into plastic baggies with karo-water, and then use that to try innoculating all kinds of random mediums. I'm only thinking this is possible because the karo should be colonized very quickly by the mycelium, so the chance of any contams beating it are low. Think it'll work?

Yes it can but contams can still get it easily..it needs to be clean mycelium. Karo water wont become 100% colonized ever so it can always become contaminated..even after a month of sitting there..especially after more time passes actually.

You can definatly try by making it 10:1 ratio of water:3% h202. It won't harm the mycelium much but it will kill any mold spores that may be on there. It may shock it a few days and take a few days more before ready to use. It should be ready anywhere from 3-10 days depending on many factors.

i hope you're doing this in a glove box. karo can contam easily, like scatmanrav said. flow hood/glovebox would be needed to do this.

Yeah I don't have a glove box, but if it doesn't work it's not a big deal. This was mainly done for fun or just as an easy experiment. Appreciate the responses, I'll try out the h202 scatmanrav.
