And Enter, Gartz is now only work9ng part time at the University of Leipzig.

Back in the early 1990s he got into some trouble with Dutch authorities when someone inHollad gotbusted for getting cultures in the mail.

He currently published a book in German on Salvia divinorum.

I might rite a translation?

Maybe, but not sure yet.

I am assuming that it is just a trait of the species. It may be more problematic than useful if it tends to go into fruiting mode before a bulk substrate is fully colonized.

Workman have you ever worked with any fluorescent dyes on spores or mycelium? What types of stains would one use to show the internal structures of a spore?

Good luck with the new strain!

I don't know of any stain that will penetrate a spore or make the internal structure more visible. There are several dyes for enhancing the visibility of mycelium, even some common food dyes give reasonable results.

Another image has been added to the violacea paper.

Yeah it seems very problematic currently. Is the birdseed colonzing, or has it already fruited?!

Are there ways to make the strain not do this, by isolation or what? Seems like you're going the opposite direction in isolations. Rather than getting the strong fruiter, your first just trying to get the mycelium to colonize!

This is very interesting, I am new the the world of agar and strain isolation, I cant wait to see the process of how you're going to get this to fruit well.

keep up the great work, I look forward to checking out the results of your medium trials.
please keep us posted!

i was intrigued by the new antibiotic you were working with.
found some places that sell it, but i also found a few warnings about gentamycin sulfate being toxic, carcinogenic, and/or teratogenic.

what do you think workman? at 100mg/L it doesn't seem like much, but when it's come to cancer causing, and flipperbaby-makin stuff, i seem to prefer the longer road instead of the shortcut over a papermache bridge.
you know of any figures for this chem, such as the amount of safe exposure to it and so on, or do you suggest that I just go with my gut, stick to weeding out contams on peroxidated agar, and so on?
heh, are those warnings even true?

again, great work.

peace and thank you,
uniboner
