azurescens colonization problems
    #6759116 - 04/07/07 10:39 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Hey,
I have some spawn, mixed it with some wood chunks, and put it in a mason jar. Nothing has happened, I put it outside to experience cold, as I read that help with the colonization process, but still nothing. Is pine a usable substrate?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Pine is not a good substrate; you want hardwood chips/sawdust.

Cold does not help colonization at all, it hinders it. Pine is not usable, you need hardwood, and not chunks. Use small slivers of hardwood, surrounded by hardwood sawdust.

you want to start with rye grain or seed for 1st generation spawning, and a hardwood(alder)chips mixed with sawdust and bran. a autoclave bag would be the better choice for the fruiting substrate. indoor or outdoor?
