How far will mycelium stretch?
    #610122 - 04/16/02 03:29 PM (21 years, 5 months ago)

Back in the day when I grew my own I used agar in dishes to first grow uncontaminated mycelium, then cut it up and put it into jars of grain.

Ive always wondered, since you can take one agar dish to inoculate several jars or several other agar plates, just how many times can you do this? How far removed from your origional spore can you go with the mycelium?

Im asking because I want to start an outdoor garden and it would be great if I could inoculate jar after jar after jar from the same batch over and over and keep adding them to fill my 10' X 10' garden.

By doing this exponentially I could fill the entire garden 4 inches deep with mycellium ritch grain by next growing season.

I think forever! so good luck.
when you're going grow in bulk you can better use an other substrate then grain. bettre use straw.

I'm sure the same rules apply, but in Stamet's book, Growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms. He talk about starting with a single jar of mycelium, divides that into 10 jars, then those into a hundred, then continuges that. this method was for growing bulk gourmet mushrooms. but with some gourmet mushrooms, he has spread one jar and over a 3 month period ends up with enough colonized substrate for a million pounds of fresh mushrooms. Hows that for crazy eh?
