low tek azures and a question about pics
    #3631157 - 01/15/05 02:59 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

well, I have started a post like this b4 but never finished, so now it is time to post it once more now that I have pics and better success.
dec 21st. winter solstice. fresh azures brought back from hammond, or.
dec 22nd. as mushrooms were cleaned, stem butts were placed onto soaked corrugated cardboard in clear plastic containers, originally containing salad from costco.
jan 1st. mycelium growth onto cardboard approx 1 inch diameter around original stem butt. rhizomorphic to linear, beautiful white even growth.
jan 5th. Several especially nice looking isolates transferred onto their own cardboard in their own containers. same cardboard, same container.
jan 13th. mycelium has just about colonized all the cardboard. in another day or two it should be done. and since the mycelium is grown from a single fruitbody. the flushes and growth should be nice and even. In essence a very easy alternative to isolating on agar. alder branches cut off trees and chopped up using cutco scissors. this took quite some time, but the results were nice and I was able to make a nice pile of fresh alder, with pieces varying from 1/2 to 2 inches long. all the wood was from smaller to medium branches, so there is still some of the bark left on a lot of the pieces, although the inner wood is exsposed as well. the chips were then placed into another tub and soaked in h2o.
jan 15th. The chips are draining nicely now. they feel good and moist. chips will be laid down over the colonized sheets of cardboard and put back in the dark to colonize.
room temp is approx 65 to 70 degrees all the time in my house, except for the basement which fluctuates from 55 to 65 degrees. pretty nice.
most of the chips will be used to inoculate more chips for an outdoor bed, but I must attempt the indoor, considering that the basement is at a perfect temp right now.
now some questions.
1. since I have always gotten mycelium from fruiting specimins, do you think that if there are necessary bacteria for fruiting the azures they are present and thats why they fruit. Previous fridge attempts have yielded fruits, albeit sparsely.
2. what about pasturized straw? In hammond 90% of the fruits I find seem to be growing exclusively from the matted dead dune grass present at the base of the grass clumps. and the best flushes occur where these mats are nice and thick, and the only thing underneath is sand. while the rest are found on wood debris( like old pallates at my best patch) although in my experience, the wood produces a thicker stockier more rapidly blueing fruit. would straw produce more quickly? oysters can be grown on wood and straw. with quicker fruiting on straw, but better yields on wood.
now a question about pictures.
All I have access to right now is a camera phone, so I can send pics off that to my e-mail, which I have done. now how do I get them from there to here? Take in mind that I am fairly computer illiterate.
I am hoping you will watch this thread. I have never had this much mycelium to play with before and so I say LET THE EXPERIMENTATION BEGIN!

if the sign says dont pick the mushrooms, you should probably pick them
