dextrose water
    #376478 - 08/22/01 04:13 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

i swear i have searched plenty on this subject. What is the proper percentage (grams/100ml) of dextrose to grow mycelia in liquid? I know i could use honey but where I am right now believe it or not, dextrose is easier to find and use.
Also, there seems to be a bit of a conflict over whether scraping some spores into sugar water to get liquid mycelial inoculant for jars is any better than just putting spores into the jar? Could I hear some good arguments for/against this?

neither honey or dextrose, shrooms or spores ever worked
for me. just take spore prints.

its 3-4% honey or dextros to 96-97% water(by weight). i just read this somewhere. dont know where but im going to use a tiny part of a shroom cap to get my jars going. and by the way i can get dextros easier than honey too. :)) weird huh lol

5% by weight, that is 5 grams per 100 ml, give the solution at least one week to colonize. Done clean, you can save a week of germination.
