tampanensis pinning strategy (ATTN: Una,Anno,Teona
    #576297 - 03/12/02 12:01 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Can anyone offer their (non-copyrighted) tips and tricks on getting Ps. Tampanensis to pin? Cased w/ buffered coir. Incubated @ 81F. When to introduce fruiting temps/air ex? Days? How long until pinning? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Layed out colonized ryeseed into brownie pan, cased with peat:perlite, covered with plastic lid for 48 hours, introduced into fruiting chamber and exposed to fresh air. Pinning occured at around day 14 from casing. Temps were between 75-82 F. They were a tad slow to mature from pinning.

Where do you find rye grass seed? I have a clone I would like to grow out.

I get mine from Kmart, but you can get it at feed stores, from gardening catalogs, many different sources. The brand I use is KGRO quick lawn. It is a mixture of annual and perrenial. Has some debris in it, but hasn't caused any problems to date. It is a tad expensive, but cheaper then mail order, and comes in 5 lb bags.
The feed store cost five bucks in gas to drive too. CITY LIFE CAN BE A DRAG.

This is the grass seed you use to seed a lawn.
Just make sure you buy one without fungicides.

Yes, I have had great luck with ANY type of grass seed. Mixes, blends, straight up, with a twist....they all work, IF THEY HAVE NO FUNGICIDES. My only COMPLETE failure was with an unknown seed...absolutely NOTHING happened. Side-by-side with good seed. They still sit, looking clean, but NO GROWTH.
I have found that a mix of seed and coir and GROUND seed or even rice flour or ground millet helps. I have NO reason why, except experience. If you can get the coir moist enough in the substrate (jars/bags), then its OK. It wants to dry out. The ground seed/millet/flour is necessary to add nutrients to the "blank" coir. It feels like a thick sponge when colonized. I wish I could explain it....
This mix is GREAT for sclerotia production also, invitro. The texture/airspaces made by the coir might be the key.
I apologize for the lack of pictures, but I just got a good camera. I have the TAMPANENSIS from WORKMAN and the MEXICANA "A" from him too. I would like to thank psylocyber for them both....I HOPE THE CUBANS WERE GOOD!! LOL...
I have invitro pics of the above substrate fully colonized with sclerotia forming if you must see them.....
Oh yea, if you do not plan to extract the sclerotia, I hope you like the taste of the mix!!!! Not too bad, really! But hell, those fuckin' vegetarians will eat ANYTHING!!!!
When fruiting, keep the temps in the low 70s. It helps.92% humidity is good.
A thin casing is difficult to do evenly, but really helps. Keep it even, and moist.
Oh, and pray that your "copy" of the TAMP fruits!! Some are bunk.
I hope I helped at least a little.....good luck buddy.
