a rye tek question and a sclerotia question
    #528551 - 01/22/02 10:13 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

1) need to try a rye tek (been pf tek and casing brf cakes all these years) can someone point me to a well written, understandable page?
is there a good success rate at innoculating pressure cooked rye with colonized brf cakes?

2) what are sclerotia? are they edible, easy to grow? are they prized?

2) sclerotia is condensed mycellium thought for the outlasting of the mushroom, especially in drier warmer climates. Sclerotia are "edible" (they contain also psilocin/psilocybin).
Not all mushrooms build screlotia, espcecially Psi. cubensis doesn't do it.
A far as I know the following produce sclerotia, some more than the others:

Psi. mexicana
Psi. tampanensis
Psi. semilanceata
and others...

The sclerotia is as "easy" to grow as the mushrooms which produce them, i.e. it can be also hard to grow them (depends on your cultivation skills). Often to initiate sclerotia formation, the conditions have to be different than for the formation of fruitbodies, e.g. for Psi. mexicana a temperature of 20 - 24 C and darkness is better suited. Also the amount of nutrients is essential.

The sclerotia have the advantage that they don't contain as much water as fruitbodies (if I remember right they are about 20 % dry matter in contrast to 8% for the fruitbodies), therefore you get a more dry matter than with fruitbodies starting from the same fresh weight.
