still pin on small substrate?
    #635851 - 05/18/02 10:23 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

hello. whats the smallest size of a cake i can go and still have successful pinning? like if i cut one of my cakes in half to make two cakes, would it still pin as good and produce as much if never cut? i have about a 1/4 of a leftover 1/2 pint cake that i cased in small breadpan. there was no room in the pan, but i wanted to keep it around. would this small of a clump still be capable of pinning and producing fruit if exposed to fruiting conditions? it's GT if that helps. thanks.

I swear I saw a picture a looooooong time ago of a cubensis fruiting on like one grain of rye.

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

wow. interesting. well i cased it in a small plastic tupperware w/ some other mycelia that i had in a jar w/ re-wetted antient cow/horse shit that i found in our pasture. the mycelia loves it surprisingly and i didn't even have to sterilize. so now i have 3 casings in containers that are no bigger than 2''wx4"lx1.5"h. should i be expecting much out of these small containers? its like a mirco gro. and i have one pin so far, and i think it's from ecuador mycelia(one casing has GT/EQ mixed mycelia). we'll find out when it gets bigger. keep ya informed. thanks for all replies. still open for comments.
