Simple colonization techniqe...what do you think?
    #6553286 - 02/11/07 06:04 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

It is very similar to other teks, but several steps heve been skipped...After you let germinate and boil the wheat, then just simply put it
into plastic container or where you want to grow it and prepare it for growing (add perlite, and so on..) Close the lid and put the container into boiling water to sterilise the perlite and wheat. When it is done and cool, just inject spores into substrate, close the lid and let it colonise...when its finished just put it into aqarium or where you grow it and thats all...The point of this tek is the minimal chance of contam
and it is easier...I havent tried it yet, but I dont see anything why it couldnt be done like this..whats your opinion? Hope it is understandable...And yes, it is very probable that this tek exist, but
I dont know about it...just tell me

Guessing you mean vermiculite, not perlite..?
Anyway, a sealed container will choke the mycelium.

No, I put perlite instead vermiculite on it, it doesnt mind : )
You can ventilate it, I think it couldnt be problem... By the way I dont think it will choke, I had for about 3 months mycelium next to bacon in fridge without
fresh air, yesterday I put it into casing and it is pretty good....I will try it and let you know, but dont have spores right now, must wait for some mushes...
LayYouIn, thx for correction...

IT could work... search some of agars threads, he has something similar to this. He suggest you dont do it because its not worth it but it can work.

You're mentioning storing a fully colonized cake in the fridge, where the temperature almost completely stops mycelium growth, therefore gas exchange isn't needed. Getting a cake colonized is an entirely different matter, IME.

I tried with a couple of sealed containers my first grow. They stalled at about 20% colonization, and got contaminated when i tried to ventilate.

It's always nice to think outside the box, but I'd suggest for the first dozen or two grows that you stick to following the established procedures to the letter. Once you understand the process, experiment.

Your project will run out of air, contaminate due to lack of proper sterilization, and have little to nothing of substance to fruit on. Perlite spawn 'can' be used to inoculate other substrates, but not as a fruiting substrate itself. All of this has been tried and written about on these pages. Good luck.
