First pins on my agar experiment!!! (PICS)
    #4102827 - 04/27/05 03:25 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

A few weeks ago I posted here about an attempt to use agar plates as spawn for casing trays. Since I had more agar plates then I could deal with, I gave it a shot:

Potato dextrose agar
Spores aquired from the wild
Substrate: 85% horse poo, 15% Verm
Casing: 50% coco coir, 50% Verm
Incubatated in B.O.D. at 27*C




After 9 days. After the pictures I added a little layer of poo substrate to even out the growth.




After 13 days (sorry for the bad cel phone pics...)




Now, 23 days after.



Some primordia showing as well



They now live inside my PmP.

Now I am wondering why is it only pinning on the sides? The trays were opaque and I was using 2 trays to make them stronger, so no light was going through them. Now I had to cut out the sides of the trays to allow them to fruit without getting smashed.

How often should I mist them? The humidity is very high inside my PmP, I got a strong air pump connected to 2 12 inches air wands.

Thanks for any feedback

Junka

the casing layer looks dry in your picture...is it?

I'd keep it moist.

They are pining off the side for moisture...IMHO.

isn't light reashing the sides of the substrate also a trigger for side pinning? Looks like those trays are allowing light through the sides.

Yeah but side pinning isnt a problem, so it doesnt matter about the light. The point was, the MAIN reason, theres all the side pinning and not top pinning is very dry coir. Its also fiberous, obviously from a hydroponic store. I dont like that stuff as much as the pet store stuff. It doesnt hold water the same. And peat is even better. I dont think that casing will be able to hold moisture well...I bet it evaporates right after its misted... The sides being exposed would help dry out the whole thing too, which is why its better to leave them in the container.

I think the main problem about it is lack of moisture on the top. That happened because the tray wasn't getting enought mistings since it was inside a BOD with low humidity. Now it's inside my PmP, and I am giving it a few light mistings a day, so I believe that it's gonna be fine from now on.
Next time I will make sure to chop down the coir to make it better and keep the moisture content a little higher.

Hopefully I will be posting some fruits soon!

Thanks a lot for the help
