Mycobag & Sclerotia
    #4351275 - 06/29/05 05:37 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

When growing Sclerotia do you want to break up the substrate in the mycobag? Also do you want to inject the spores into the substrate or on the surface of the substrate?

Thanks...

Inject anywhere, just try to squirt all over the bag, along the edge of it, instead of into the center (easier to see colonization)..break up the bag after 15% colonization, and maybe at 80% if its needed...after fully colonized dont break it up either, just let it sit for 2-6 months and forget about it.

You want the spore syringe to be in the substrate. With a bag I'd probably try to get it around half way into the middle from the outside. Also, it's important to slide the needle part of the syringe toward the stopper when injecting. A lot of people just punch the end down, but this results in a high concentration of spores in one area. By moving the needle point up toward the outside, spores will be all along the line.

I have one bad that I broke up initially and it has some decent tampanensis colonization. The ones that were left together and inoculated into the substrate, one has a little growth on the top but it hasn't changed for the last month and the mexicana shows no growth what-so-ever. Is there anything else I should watch for. The bag that was broken up has most of the myc is growing at the bottom of the bag.
