Re: Hickory as Azure substrate? [Re: Jared]

I have found that any old, half rotted wood works for azures. If your hickory chips are fresh they may not work. I like to take sticks and branches from fallen limbs, chop them up into small pieces, and soak them in water for two weeks. Then I put them dripping wet into a plastic bag and let them age in the air for another two weeks. The wood chips are then ready to be spawned. Pasteurizing is not necessary. The chips may be spawned with colonized grain or with wood that has previously been colonized. Wood from conifers appears to work just as well as wood from decidous trees as long as the wood is partly decayed and no longer resinous. You can also buy bags of medium sized chunks of tree bark, the kind used for landscaping, and soak the bark as described above. Tree bark can also be used in place of wood.

I'm using hickory chips, and they seem to work fine.

Hickory is fine. I wouldn't recommend using half rotted wood since you want the azures to do the rotting. Anything that is already rotting the wood is a competitor.

I was having trouble finding the sawdust for the initial innoculation. Please read my posting under PERFECT to find out about the sawdust. I am very glad to hear the part about the rotting wood as I will start soaking the wood immediately as I alrady have the jars going. I'm happy to hear about the landscaping mulch as it is very easy to get. I have read other information saying not to use this bark as it doesn't work, but then others say that the azurescens grows sporadically in landscaping bark. So I was going to experiment with it, but now I will use it as a mainstay for my wood pile. I have been collecting fallen maple and willow branches and other hardwood for my pile. Nobody ever said to soak the wood but it only makes sense. I'm going to get soaking this weekend.
