Popcorn kernels as substrate? Just wondering.
    #623397 - 04/30/02 04:31 PM (21 years, 10 months ago)

Hello everyone. I have an assload of popcorn kernels and I'd like to put them to good use somehow. I got some nasty blisters getting them off the cobs several years ago so I don't want to just throw them out. Would P. Cubensis B+ grow on this very well or would it need additives of some type? I just like to experiment a little. I have doubts that they would even absorb water but I'd like to see anyway.

Would you have to grind them up? Why not use fresh ones(oh no! more blisters)? Anyway, you can be your own hero by doing this, and posting the results. Thats how we make progress.... you know?

Just be sure to grind it down, and follow the directions for PF tek substituting this for BRF

Yes, I understand that's how we make progress, I was just wondering if it had been attempted before. I steeped some of it for an hour and it absorbed some water but not much. Maybe it needs pressure. I'll try inoculating some in this state and when I get some vermiculite from the old farts at K-Mart I'll use it as a substitute for BRF and try to grow some cakes. Thank you for the suggestion to grind it up; I'm sure that could and probably will make all the difference. Those kernels are tightly sealed. I'll see what happens and let everyone know in a few days or weeks or whatever it takes. The kernels have been sitting in a dark basement for years and there is no mold or anything growing on them. They were even out in the garage for about a year. Maye this means they are hard to contaminate or maybe it doesn't mean shit because they are really dry. I have no clue. Thanks again.

Thank you SixTango, that sounds like a gravy idea.

A friend of mine used cornmeal and he said it worked well; and cornmeal is ground up corn...
