Agar Question
    #454111 - 11/10/01 06:04 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

If I had colonized agar dishes, with the stringy mycelium, how would I go about fruiting them? Would slicing a piece of the colonized agar and putting it in a substrate work? Like how you break up colonized cakes into casing, but I'd be using slices of agar.......or would this not work? Agar seems like something I want to try out, but I'm a little confused. Any help is appreciated.

Transfer them into some rye grain spawn. Then, use that spawn to innoculate some more spawn. Then, case that spawn and get loads of mushrooms.

I'm still kind of a beginner, what do you mean by rye grain spawn? Is there more information I can read somewhere about that? Thanks for the reply.

You slice the agar with a sterilized knife or other tool and use the chunk of agar with mycelium on it to inoculate a jar of sterilie substrate. The chunk of agar should be at least a quarter of an inch in size. I think what he ment by "spwn" is the sterilized substrate. Spawn is the substrate after it has been colonized.

Yeah just throw a chunk of mycelium- covered agar into a substrate...
Some substrates:(not including water and recipes)
brow rice flour and vermiculite cakes, birdseed & verm, Rye grass seed, Rye grass seed and BRF, hell I even got B+ to grow on grape-nuts(the breakfast cerial)
If you wanted to be cool you could just make a jar consisting of some water and a small shard of glass or 2 (hole in lid) sterilize it in a PC, and throw your chunk of mycelium-covered agar in there, and shake it all around, (do the hokie pokey) and you make a mycelium syringe it goes alot faster, if you are sterile enough to pull it off. Just squirt a coupla CC's all around a jar and you will have 100% colonization in less than 10 days (maybe less than 5)... my 2 c
