Determine Characteristics from Agar?
    #457612 - 11/14/01 01:45 AM (15 years, 25 days ago)

Ok, besides knowing a strain's speed of colonization, is there anything else you can find out my germinating spores on agar? For example: whether or not it's going to fruit, potency, etc.? My FOAF is new to agar and the such and would like to research it a little before he spends money/time. Thanks.

Can anyone help with this? Are there any other characteristics besides growth speed that can be determined by letting the fungus grow on agar?

If you leave it on agar long enough it will probably pin, depending on the strains tolerance to high co2. With agar you are really just trying to get a good rhizomorphic strain free of contaminants. Then you would inoculate your substrates for fruiting.

one of the main benefits of agar is to gat a rhizomorphic(strandy) culture growing. this is accompplished by isolating a small piece of the dish and transferring it to a new fresh(agar) dish where it becomes more ropey, and then to grain spawn to create your "masters"
