How long will EQ's take to culture?
    #617348 - 04/24/02 02:31 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I started 7 jars of bird seed sub on the 21st and am wondering is this a slow grower or is it the bird seed that is slowing their growth. I see allittle in 2 of my jars but they aren't as fast as the others I tried(GT's, PR's, B+'s). Can anybody tell me this?

The temp is a constent 85 to 86 degrees.
I'm puzzled..... My others fully colonised within 5 to 6 days or am I impatient?

thig guy that i met once had grown eq's on birdseed and he could get them to colonize in about a week and 3 days using a transfer. he only fills them about half way up, they are easier to shake and seem to like it better with less in there. using agar wedge about 2 weeks. if you just started make sure your water content is normal.

Side by side comparisons of rye to birdseed revealed that the rye grew nearly twice as fast as its birdseed conterpart. Rye mixed with birdseed is slower than straight birdseed.

I chalk it up to the diversity of nutrients in birdseed. Not only one type of seed is present, so the mycelium must adapt to more then one type of nutrient base, stock piling more digestive enzymes then a single type substrate. Thus the lag time.
