Reusing P.mexicana mycelium?
    #4149519 - 05/08/05 09:43 AM (13 years, 20 days ago)

Is it possible to reuse remaining mycelium, after harvesting the sclerotia, to colonise new substrate? If so would this produce fresh sclerotia or shrooms?

Cheers guys....

Mine have been brewing for about 3 months and it's hard to tell how much longer they can go; but, I'm gonna try taking one of the stones, splitting it open, dunk it in peroxide, and using that to inoculate new jars. Brown rice jar growing much better than the rye grass seed jars, although they are coming along.

Hope someone more knowledgeable than me posts a response.

I think i'll try with both the mycelium and sclerotia, unless someone advises it won't be worth it.

Common sense seems to dictate this could work and save the hassle of collecting spores and reinnocculating to make each batch.

Any experiences or more knowledgeable opinions?

yes.

Both the sclerotia and the mycelium itself can be used to inoculate more jars, or plates. It just has to be free of contamination.
