trying to get just 1 shroom for printing
    #4205948 - 05/22/05 08:55 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

ok i've been complaining about my z strain for well over a month now.
i have managed to colonize 3 jars. two jars have quite abit of myc. piss. the third one has signs of it too. The jars have been colonizing for a month. (definatly a problem with the spores... not a problem with contams incubation or rye grain prep)
What might be my best opption for getting it to fruit.

fruit it as is?
case and fruit?
dunk in h2o2 and fruit?
dunk in h202 and case and then try to fruit?
or perhaps spawn it to another medium and try to fruit it off of that?
I dont care about getting size or weight or total volume of mushrooms i would just like to see 1 good mushroom cap for printing.

I have had 4 z strain syringes and they all have sucked. 2 were replaced free of charge but have resulted in the same type of growth.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be

yep rye grain. and its definatly the slow growing myc. different strains 3 to be exact growing fine on the same grain prepared at the same time the smae way. a couple of karo jars resulted in the same results. with odd shaped myc. no large masses all idividual little hairs not very long.

what is the temp in your incubation setup?

what kind of incubator are you using?

---

I'd use a casing layer on the colonized Rye grain...after it has colonized.
If I was you.

If you have some mycelium colonizing from a Karo jar...maybe knock up a few BRF/Verm jars with a mycelium syringe.

using a fridge as an inc./fruit chamber. temp is 86F. everything else is growing fine. As i said everything else is good. other strains are colonizing in normal time. these z's are slow. four syringes have resulted in the same thing. poor colonization. but it's just this strain. all other strains are fine.
If i could just get one good fruit body to take a print from i'd be happy.
But then again it would most likly carry the same slow growth characteristics wich wouldn't help any future generations.

well i'm comitted now. took my four colonized jars and have dunked them in h202. I'll roll them in verm in about 6 hours and mist the verm to add moisture then put them in a tub and give them light 12 on 12 off.
This is going to be new for me as i've always grown bulk straw with peat verm casing.
hoping things go well....
P.s. will misting the verm a couple of time a day be enough moisture?
Most of the fruiting chamber i see have perlite or other means of humidification and i dont want the exspense as i normally use a fridge but its currently in incubation mode.
perhaps an inch of water with a tray in it to keep the cakes out of the water might help.
any ideas???
