need an expert!
    #4639720 - 09/09/05 11:38 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

i am no expert, but i have a couple questions and i want answers from an educated person. i purchased a spawn bag of psil. cyan. from shamanic extracts, it's a lot smaller than i thought it would be, about 2x3 inches. what i want to know is can i get even one mushroom from it if i try to fruit? i already have some cardboard and alder chips soaking, but if i have a likelyhood of getting some fruit i'll just make a print and go from there.

Yeah, if you expand that spawn to cardboard, you can make plenty to get some fruits.

I can't be specific, you weren't specific with how much spawn you have.  In volume, not inches :smile:

But nearly any amount of spawn can be multiplied enough to get fruits.  Assuming you know the rest of the cultivation paramaters for Ps. cyan?

i know i can continue to colonize and get fruit, but can the appr. 3 cu.in. spawn bag itself produce fruit?

From the bag itself? Is it a wood based substrate? Do you have an environment for it that is inline with fruiting paramaters for Ps. cyan?

Perhaps you do, and if so, maybe. But my guess would be that if you are asking, then no you can't.

Use that spawn on some cardboard, and save a little to spawn some sterilized unsuplemented sawdust. Use the cardboard to start beds from the bottom, use the sawdust to make more cardboard, or more sawdust and then even more cardboard or directly to a mix of chips and dust. I doubt you'll get much outa such a small bag unless you know a lot about growing Ps. cyans, which it doesn't sound like you do.

The Spawn must be transfered to corrugated cardboard to fruit, you cant fruit it from spawn(as far as i know), it wants hard wood to fruit.

the myc. in the spawn bag is on a hardwood substrate, alder i believe.

i happen to have a very suitable enviro to grow it. i have decided not to attempt fruitong the bag. i am just hasty, i have cubes and azur. colonizing right now so i don't really need the cyans. i am not sure about the azures so i am just going to throw it under the cardboard tomorrow morning.

just thought of a new question, the terrarium i plan on using is fairly large, should i get something smaller going. the cardboard sheet i am using is the bottom of a 12 pk of canning jars and it nearly covers the bottom of my terrarium. i have plenty of alder chips and other cardboard. do you think that little bag will be able to colonize my cardboard?

in Short: yes. Now for the long version: You need to build that spawn, i recommend getting scissors and cut up a piece of card board 11' by 8" (standard composition note book size), cut into very small strips, soak the strips then transfer the spawn, keep building the spawn as big as you can get it(the more the better), then in goes the sheet.

Office Max sells shredded cardboard as packing material,(works grate).
if you are using corrugated cardboard, soak it, and peal off the outer layer, it is often treated w/ waterproofing.
spawn it 10/1. keep it kool and moist.
have fun :smile:

I think you have more than enough spawn to colonise that piece of cardboard, and a tbs leftover to make some sawdust spawn if you wanted to.
