GT slow germination???
    #375585 - 08/21/01 12:46 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone found that golden teachers are slow germinaters??? I innoculated 12 jars 8 days ago. The KOh samui jars are half done, GT are showing no sign of growth. Ive never used GT strain before. None of the other strains i used took so long to germinate either.

Thats funny I with mine the GT's were half done before the Thai KS started. and the GT's that i had done with honey water were 80% done. that was all after about 6 or 7 days.

Humf, 7 jars and no mycelium oh well. Do u think if i brew up honey water and use that instead of spores will that work. Or will i be able to germinate the honey water. Maybe i went light on the spores or somthing, ill inject the rest of the spores into a honey water. shit im rambling i think

Like L3D, Ive had great results with GTs - quite healthy looking mycelium - and germinated on the fourth day. I also chucked some spores in a malt water jar and they refused to germinate...

GT's worked great in the honey water for me. you only need about 1 cc of spore water. use anythign else you ahve on other jars then you can use the syring for the honey water.
but no sense in useing all the spore water in 1 jar of honey water i have had a jar go bad on me. I supose you could jsut make up a few honey water jars.

I'm having the same problem as you. I have 6 half pints with GTs and its been 13 days and not much is going on however my Hawaiians are almost ready to be cased. i tried making more jars using 4cc a jar and that was 5 days ago and not much is going on in those either but again the hawaiians that i used 4cc a jar with are about 75% colonized at the 5 day mark. Best of luck to ya.

Good bye.

Really? Im about to fruit a GT cake! That's great news... Have you tried any of the thai strains? Ive heard nothing but good news about those strains... I got my print off Egghead, and my GTs all took off - non rhizo. mycelium but, it looks like white snow slowly moving through the substrate

yeah, they can be as slow as whale shit sometimes.... i've seen them colonizea pint in as little as 12 days, and as many as 2.5 months. Just be patient young grasshopper.

I've not noticed no difference in germination time or mycellial growth in GT compared to PF.

There are other possible reasons. Slightly dry substrate might be the cause or non-optimal germination temperatures or even a dilute spore syringe. AFOAF has 10 jars of GT on the go at the moment, theygerminated fast and are colonising agressively.

This is an old thread but I think it would probably be better to follow up on it rather than starting a new one...

The sporeprint I'm working from originates from Dreammatrix' GT herd, so I'm sure it's viable. =) 12 days ago I innoculated 2 jars of honey LGM, 4 PC'd jars and 2 nuked glasses. None of the jars or glasses have shown any growth (alien sub & classic sub). The LGM just looked like there was a bunch of spores floating around in it, ungerminated. I was beginning to worry and analyze what went wrong... But. Today when I checked up on my family I found the LGM alive!
Around the previously ungerminated spores I can now detect slight rhizmorphic growth and the spores are starting to clump together due to this.

Joy!  :smirk:

This has gotten me curious as to the germination of the spores in my other jars. Perhaps they aren't either as dead as I previously believed. Hopefully signs of mycelium in them will be showing up soon. Unfortunately the substrate in them has started to sag due to gravity.

Anyway, them spores can be slow germinators. If you're in a situation like me; Don't loose faith like I almost did!  :smile:

GT's take to karo water quite well. When I innoculate birdseed quart jars with karo mycelium from GT's they do quite well being ready to case within ten days. My incubation temp is 82 degrees F.
