my first attempt
    #3528963 - 12/21/04 09:10 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I streaked out on Malt.tryptone/yeast. agar, got a white fluffy mycelium after about ten days.Out of three plates only one had this, the others appeared to have some yellowish(probably bacteria) growth.The first sign of life appeared on a streak line so Im hoepfull its not contamination.

First question: DOes this sound about right for C.C. I/e white fluffy, grow times, etc.

I then cut out some chunks(steriley) and threw them into some rice flour,vermiculite that i autoclaved. After about 10 days, the top 1.4 of the jar is covered with a whiteish,not so furry fungie of sometype.

Fairly hard to tell without pictures but, does this sound completely off base or could it be "So far so good"?

yes, it sounds about right
congrats on playing with agar your first time around
i hope it works for you
i would keep playing with it
when you start to get the hang of agar,
you will lern that you are looking for mycelium that is more rhizomorphic then cottony
in the end you will get an isolate
also,
invest in or build your own flowhood
its well worth the time/money

"mycelium that is more rhizomorphic then cottony"

This meaning mycelium that looks like small ropes or branches (rhizos).

Thanks guys for the input. I think agar is more appealing than ordering a syringe form someone, you dont know who may have varying levels of what they consider "Clean" or "Sterile".


I have another question. Is there any need to two water prior to going to a casing? (it looks as if my substrate is getting a little dry).

2) I'd like opinions once the substrate(rice flour/vermiculite) appears confluent if someone wouldnt mind. The recomended TEk for begginners says to just plop it into a terrarium and see what happens. Is it really much work to try and case it the first time through?

At the current growth rate I have id say im looking at ten days until im ready. Any things people wish they knew before they got to their first attempted fruiting?

i'm attempting my first grow and if anyone wants to critique what i am going to try i'd like to hear about it before i screw it up...so basically i'm going to do about 3 jars rice cake and once they fully colonize take a sterile cake pan cover the bottom with vermiculate crumbe the rice cakes over the top and cover it with plastic wrap.
ofcourse there are more details that need to be done and i know that but for typing sake im just giving a broad description of how i plan on trying it..any comments good or bad will be appreciated.
