New Idea, will it work?
    #640028 - 05/22/02 08:05 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,My friend was wondering if he injected sterile water into a colonizing jar of mycelium, shook up, and then sucked it out back into the syringe, could it be used as innoculation fluid?Basically growing mycelium for innoculation.Seems easy enough, I...I mean he just doesnt want to ruin a jar if it will not work.Someone ever tried this? Some Brf or whatever would be okay in the syringe right, as long as you used it right away...Mabybe he'll try and see then tell everyone.And Im not sure if this is a new idea, someone may have already discovered it.Let me know what you all think.-Beano

None of these statements are to be taken seriously. FarmerD is a fictional character, and so are the things he posts.

Never heard of it, but if you were careful, the worst that could happen is no growth. I dont know if the water would be able to bring any mycelium back up with it.

Might as well try, but I dont think anything will happen

My friend used to do something similiar when she was growing pf-style jars, though the mycelium came from agar petri dishes rather than jars. The problem is breaking up the mycelium enough so that it will suck back into the syringe... not as easy as it sounds, even on agar. I would think in a jar you would have even more problems. If you are able to get a syringe of mycelium water, it works great for innoculating new jars. There is a tek around that talks about using a blender to cut up an entire cake to produce the liquid needed for the syringe.

Just another spore in the wind.

You can just birth the cake when it's fully colonized, and then put sterile water in the empty jar. Then you can use the syringe to suck up the water to use as innoculant.
