Niger Seed
    #4322264 - 06/21/05 09:37 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Anyone ever colonized with it? Its latin name is Guizotla Abyssinita.. Is it worth experimenting with?

Most niger seed sold for bird food has been heated to prevent it from germinating. It is a good additive to other small seeds around a 5% rate, but I would not use it straight up, as it is high in oils. To much oil - causes problems, same as occur with rape seed, over 5% in a mix.

Ugh too late.. This seed has been sitting in my garage for years. It wasn't very oily when I squeezed it between my fingers. I guess we shall see..

The texas was off a print that.. Someone off here sent me, can't remember who.. Sorry, but It's already got a cpl spots of nice rhizo growth! They're only a cpl centimeters in Diameter, but it's only been three days, and I thought hydrated spores where supposed to germinate faster.. I just scraped these off a print in sterile conditions.

I oficially dub this experiment a complete failure.. I think the high oil content in the Niger seeds favored cobweb to psilo myc, and hence I got some weak looking cobweb in both jars that over run the myc.. C'est la Vie

Usually high oil promotes good quick growth, of everything...so starts off good but ends in contam...usually bacterial shit but some sort of shit anyway..

If you plant niger seed, you'll only end up with nigers.

The cambo fell to Bacillum first, then got cobweb, with no myc.. The Texas had Rhizo Myc growth very quickly, but then got cobweb and some nasty, snot looking yellow stuff..
