melatonin in substrate?
    #491486 - 12/14/01 11:18 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

i was bored so i started reading the label of the bottle of "natures bounty" melatonin i have. it sez that melatonin is n-Acetyl-5-Methoxytryptamine. Now, im no chemist, but i see tryptamine in the formula and it gets me to thinking; maybe adding ground up pills to the substrate can give me higher potency.

just for completeness, the other ingredients are:
dicalcium phosphate
cellulose (plant origin)
vegetable stearic acid
vegetable magnesium stearate
croscarmellose

and guaranteed free of:
yeast
wheat
gluten
milk or milk derivatives
lactose
suger
preservatives
soy
artificial color
artificial flavor
sodium (less than 5 mg per serving)

is this a good idea?

I think that any amount of magnesium is a bad thing.. shroomies and magnesium don't get along.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.
