coffee coerced carpaphores
    #4674159 - 09/17/05 03:24 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

i had a jar that was about 50% colonized from my first grow that had seemed to stall, i suspected that it lacked moisture. i decided to birth it, remove the uncolonized substrate and attempt to fruit it. well, it was pretty dry and since i didn't really care too much if i failed i decided to inject the cake directly with full strength coffee. well, less than 24 hours later there is some serious knotting and the beginnings of primordia. i expect pins within the next 24. i am never growing without coffee again!!!

What gave you the idea to inject them with coffee?

Please post pictures of what the pins look like, I'd really like to see how this turns out :wink: !

did u just inject them witha needle?


the reason he did this is it has been an idea that dunking/adding coffe to a substrate will make it flush like a freak. this idea has been kicked around in many a forum now.

i had read some brief account of someone using coffee so i started researching. appearently it speeds colonization and seems to make the myc. anxious to pin. check out this link

well, after drawing it into the syringe and flaming the tip i let it cool, i wonder if the caffiene makes the fungus jittery if you inject too much, maybe that's why it wants to pin

Thanks man. I'm making a grow log now and I could probably expend a jar by testing this ... after all a few of them are colonizing really flippin' slowly!
