The Azure Project **completed**
    #543238 - 02/07/02 01:24 AM (22 years, 5 months ago)

Here?s the deal. I know there are several Shroomerites out there who want to cultivate Azures outdoors.



I am looking for a mentor to help me and the rest of the willing Shroomerites out in azure cultivation.



I propose an on going photo thread designed to walk cultivators through outdoor azure cultivation. I would post regular photo updates and welcome others to as well.



I hope to have some sort of assignment schedule that everyone could follow. eg. Finish spawn preparation March 1st.  Prepare outdoor bed June 1st, etc.



Here are pics of some transplanted Astorian Azure mycelium from November. I have kept in on cardboard over a mix of peat/verm. I will be transfering some samples to agar plates in preparation of a spring bed.



Azure cultivation mentor needed!!! :cool:

Apply here.:cool:

Here is an azure culture from an old print I took in 99 in hammond, Oregon.





Here is an azure culture from spores I got from Joshua a couple months ago.




Sorry about the quality, I?m still trying to get this digicam to work well. I?ll post updates, I just started up some grain from the old azure culture as you can see there?s a wedge missing. any feedback is appreciated

Very cool, my azure spores are just starting to germinate, how long did it take to take over that much of the plate (Joshua?s spores). Josh and I picked lots of Azures this year hope to see some fruits from that strain?

It hasn?t been more than 2 weeks for Joshua?s spores. They were a lot more agressive than the old ones. I isolated it a couple times and that last plate has only been growing for like a week. I?m going to grain and then wood and I?ll post updates on both strains. I?ll get some better pics soon.

Here is a little better picture. It?s starting to get a little blue in the center. The original plate I did bruised like crazy when I cut it up. I?m trying to get used to this new camera, It?s a 2.3 mp hp camera. It?s supposed to be really good but I just cant get real good close ups. I?ll keep trying.

You really should try and get them in the ground before June. Ideally you want the spawn run this time of years indoors, have it planted in the ground by early spring, then hopefully fruit that same fall. If you dont start it until June, you may not see fruits until the following fall.

Yeah I got it going early just for that reason and I hope to have it out sometime in march. We didn?t get much of a winter here so the ground should thaw up sooner than that I hope. I?ll post my progress. later

Im gonna use sawdust/bran in 1 pint jars, Inoculate agar wedge culture, then spawn larger alder chips in trays, then place spawn under a Roadodendron bush covering with more larger chips and leaves, then cover that with black plastic till fall, take plastic off in beginning of october, start fruiting, Be a happy camper!!! Does this sound good enough, or does this need any other modification, please help?

I am in need of hardwood spiral-cut dowels. Where can I find these? I will be using these as spawn for my bed. I went to a hardware store but they did not offer a very good price for bulk, about 10 cents a piece!

You should get you some smoke chips, they are much cheaper than dowels.

What would make a good spawning material? Should I just spawn chips to chips?

For my substrate: How about pet bedding? I found a large quantity (.5 meter cubed) for $10. It is made from aspen. I suppose the best would be fresh alder. I have access to a chipper and fresh alder branches. I was planning on using the chips for the substrate. I am unsure of what material would make for good spawn.

wow! Great post! Ive just started on that azure print you sent Joshua - i dont have any agar supplies at the moment so i had to streak them into a malt/water medium - just waiting to add h202 as soon as they germinate.
I really find from experience with woodlovers in Australia, that nothing beats picking your own mycelia and spawning from there - its soo easy and there is no real need to be sterile if your working with wood chips.
My Ps.Australiana / Subaeruginosa are doing really well - after they began pinning invitro i added some more cardboard and they have taken to this like mad!!

I go this route:

agar -> grain(millet) ->sterilized woodchips in jars -> pasteurized woodchips in bags -> outdoor woodchips bed

A light frost(a few degrees under the freezing point) won?t harm the mycelium. So unless there?s a deep winter expected to come, you could make a patch today.

I?ve been busy :smile:



On 2/16

I innoculated two agar plates to start my cultures. One was innoculated w/ multispore, the other from some mycelium I transplanted from Astoria into a jar w/ some cardboard and wood chips.

I will update the agar plates soon. I think the one with the transfer is contammed. I am going to see if I can get some mycelium to grow and then transfer to a clean plate.



On 2/17

I also began preparation of my bed. I chipped some woodships of both alder and maple. I have at least 50 lbs of fresh woodchips now! I hope you all enjoy the pics. I broke a sweat making the bed.

Chips/Bed



Alder



Maple



Maple on left, alder on right



Old compost from wood chips and blackberry vines (4-5 years)





New compost from wood chips and blackberry vines (2-3 years)





Contrast of wood chips against composted chips





I layered the bed from bottom up with the old compost, new compost, and new chips. Total bed depth exceeds 1 ft in some areas.











These two are pics of the sky from the bed to show exposure.

hee hee! Someone just started several cultures the day after you did. Half Cyans. & the other half Azures.

You should get yourself one of those big plastic bins. You know, the ones at Wal-Mart that look like big planters with the rope handles. Once you have some spawn, you can mix it into those bins filled with alder chips and keep them nice and toasty in a dark place somewhere until about May. You?ll have a shitload of colonized chips by then.

Nighted is better than Google. Please take time to rate 5/5. Thanks!
