Reishi Mycobag Kit
    #3481847 - 12/11/04 03:46 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

Today I got my mycobag with a reishi culture. I plan on innoculating it tonight, but had just a few questions.

I just moved to Los Angeles, so I'm not sure how dry it actually is compared to Phoenix. Anyhow, I was wondering if there's no need to somehow humidify the substrate more. Also, I will be going to Phoenix from the 22nd to the 26th, and was wondering if it would be alright to just leave it in my apartment in LA. I was going to take it with me, but the 6 hour drive (probably more because of X-mas week) doesn't seem like it'd be so good for the mycelium.

I have a closet that's really close to my bathroom, and plan on leaving it on a top shelf there with the thermostat set to ~76 (I figure the mycelium produces its own heat, too, right?).

I'm hoping it'll be alright to just leave it for 3-4 days...any feedback?

Also, I was wondering if when I inoculate the substrate, if it might be beneficial to shake the bag (or maybe in a couple of days or something so the bag expands a little bit with air).

Do not think that this is going to be a problem. What do you think could happen to them ?

> if when I inoculate the substrate, if it might be beneficial to shake the bag
Shaking after inoculation is usually done in order to disperse the mycelium evenly which results in faster colonization.

Thank you for your response. I don't know what I thought would happen to them, but this is my first time growing any mushroom and was worried I might have overlooked something I might have to be doing while I was gone.

I know shaking can disperce the mycelium in jars and such, but was worried about if the bag would be up to the task.

Your post definitely settles my nerves a bit...I just wanted to make sure everything goes smoothly. Now I'm just worried about the thermostat in my apartment being accurate *lol*. Stupid little dial thermostat.

> Usually the cultures are not so sensitive to little temperature fluctuation.
Here the temperature also changes between 19-25 and it does not harm the mycelium.
You only might getting problems fruiting them when the temp is not within a certain range.

Ah...well that's good to know for now.  I don't mind if they don't fruit quickly, as long as they fruit :smile:  Just the idea of mycelium growing is satisfying...this is just my trial run...my little experiment.

Hello P.O.C. - try to make sure your heater doesnt fluctuate too wildly. I ordered the same thing and think my heater killed it - I think I set it to 28 C .I found it totally dried out in the middle of the bag.

Oh well - anyway good luck Dude .

Oh um-just realised your posts really old - what happend with the culture man ?
