Will Pans grow on worm castings?
    #642227 - 05/23/02 07:11 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

I know they love dung, but has anyone tried castings? Does it work at all, and if so, how do they compare?

I can get worm castings all day long, and good shit too, but good dung is a little harder to come by.


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. -- RR
