prints from dry shrooms
    #3977827 - 03/27/05 11:17 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I was wondering if there was any way to get viable prints from dried mushrooms. I realize that I won't get nearly as large a yeild from dried specimins, but can I still get enough to get some growth, and is there anything else I may need to do to extract spores from a dry cap?

You could probably take a sterile instrument of some kind and get some spores from the cap, but they would probably be dirty. Maybe a streak on some agar and then wait it out to see what becomes as far as contamination. If the growth isn't clean mycelium, pour another layer of hot agar on top of the growth, completely making another layer of agar on top of the first layer. The mycelium will crawl through to the top layer, leaving the contaminate behind on the first layer. That will clean up the culture.
