I'm not making any accusations, but I would just like to point out a couple of red flags.

This post creeps me out two ways. First it asks for accounts of succesfull attempt at growing "stropharias".

The stropharia part doesn't bother me. The king stropharia is an amazingly beautiful and ?robust? edible fungus.

But It is interesting to know that e-mails can be a good way to harvest IP addresses. I don't know if there is a way to change this.


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

never grown hippie tek...but 3-4 days? You won't need to give it light until its actually growing :-P. Just have patience, I would start giving it light as soon as it is colonized completely...or mebbe when its around 80% but thats just my $.02. I guess do whatever you want ;-). You will have awhile to wait though...coupla weeks at least.

GL on your first try though!

for invitro fruiting, you want to give them light from the time they germinate on.
you sound ok, just don't let direct sunlight on the jars as that would get too hot quick.
