are these spores any good?
    #4681102 - 09/19/05 09:44 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

so i was talking to my friend about this site and i never knew this but apparently him and another buddy were going to try to grow some mushrooms this summer. they had all their supplies ready to go, even built a glove box and bought some spores. things got sketchy around their house so they decided to scrap the project but they saved the spores. he gave me the syringe. my question is: are these still good? i don't know if they have to be in a refridgerator or what. he just kept them in his room at room temperature for about 2 months. could i use them?

also they have a sticker on them that says "BM"
anyone know what that means?
thanks

i would say there still good, only thing i ever heard of with syringes is that the spores can swell up and pug up your needle.. dont know if thats true or not.. i would say give it a shot.. your not gonna be out nothing.. or just make up some LC and see what happens..

LC is liquid Culture, 4cc kayro 96cc water, add a marble, preshure cook for 10-15 min, then put 1cc of spore solution into it. let sit in your incubator for 1 week and you should start to see lil floaties, or something that looks like someone spit a big loogie into your jar.. then suck up the mycilum and knock up your jars.. will take about a week off your time..

ok here is what i got so far
i am going to go with the PF jars

organic brown rice flour
dozen 1/2 pint ball jars
bag of vermiculite
bag of perlite
two rubbermaid tubs (small one for incubating, larger one for fruiting)
digital thermometer with humidity gauge
bottle of h2o2

i have an air pump from an old aquarium
i have bubble curtains and tubing but i am afraid they might have algae on them so i am going to buy brand new stuff later
probably build my fruiting chamber while i wait for my jars to colonize

i've spent $51 so far

any suggestions?

i have a rope light that gets hot when it is on
i was thinking about running it through a dimmer switch so that it would be adjustable
coil it up in a towel and set the tub on top and tinker with the dimmer till i get good temps

would this be a bad idea?
possible fire hazard?
i don't imagine it would have to be on very high to raise it to low 80's

this is what i was thinking
the "outdoor" sensor is at the end of a long cord and the dimer can sit on my desk right next to the thermometer

ya if you have a submersible heater get 2 tubs the same size and put about 3-4" of water and a capfull of bleach. i just set my heater in the water it isnt secured down to anything.. then put the 2nd tub in.. i like to have it so water goes atleast 1/2 way up the toat when there both together..

You might want to secure it down though... Because it can get too hot and melt it's way through the tub. I've heard of it happening. Never risk it with something that can cause a fire.
