It's The Simple Things in Cultivation..
    #514135 - 01/08/02 09:27 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Some cultivators try to reduce their colonization time. Some try to produce the most possible fruits. The easiest way to accomplish both with exceeding benefits has either been overlooked or not well literated. The sexual reproduction of the fungus(resulting in mushroom formation) is quite complex, but ive studied a bit and learned that when germinating each spore creates an individual soma eventually resulting in a male or female thallus(reproductive organ). Most thallus on a single hyphae are incompatable and since each spore creates its own hyphae its almost obvious that the more individual hyphae present the more possibility for reproduction. Therefor, more spores = more fruits!! Also, faster colonization resulting in less chance of contam. You cant lose, so pack those syringes. Results on your fruiting would be appreciated.

As an myco enthusiast you should get you a copy of both Mushroom Cultivator and Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms for the start, to see how the things work in reality.

I also recomend you downloading and studiing the document at the folowing page:

Theorizing is fine. If you're going to theorize, then preface your post by something along the lines of, "I'm thinking that," or "Wouldn't it make sense that," or "Hey folks, how does this sound?"

Lots of people at the Shroomery theorize.

What is disadvantageous and downright couterproductive and (and sometimes dangerous) is the spread of misinformation by those who have spent no time fleshing out theories, but swear that they have the key to life itself.

I'm not flaming you, and don't take offense--

Just chill out and get some experience--before you tell others WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE--how to do things.

After my first truly sucessful grow, I made a dozen or so prints. That was more than a year ago and I still haven't used them all. But since I had lots of prints I tried an experiment.

Syringe 1 contained 2 full prints. The biggest prints I had. It was black. Nearly opaque with spores.
Syringe 2 contained 1 tiny print. It was darker than any syringe I had received from a spore vendor, but not by much. It had a faint tinge of black/purple.
Syringe 3 contained a 50% diluted mixture of the smallest print I had. I was completely transparent.

All jars were labeled, and each syringe innoculated 3 jars.

The 3 jars that were "PACKED with spores" (as you say) grew no more impressively than the other 2 groups. In fact, the 3 jars made with Syringe #2 (the medium syringe) colonized the fastest.

All jars yielded pretty much an equal amount of fruit.

My conclusion? A PACKED syringe does NOT a packed terrarium make. I have a THEORY that the overkill in my black syringe slowed the colonization process down because of competition for resources.

I can't know definitively because an experiment is by definition not conclusive until it's been repeated.

". . . and I'm searchin' for the latest thing, a break in this routine--I'm talkin' some new kicks; ones like you ain't never seen. . . . "

Thanks for the info. "I wrote results on fruiting would be appreciated" because i wasnt truly possitive. Im also in the progress of testing it myself. Im sorry if i came across as a bit pushy, but.. *shrugs*
