help me!!!
    #6831814 - 04/25/07 01:29 PM (14 years, 20 days ago)

well im new on this forum....but i need a little help....
im trying to start growing my own shrooms, but i cant figure out what to do now.... i have made the agar, and its been "solidifying" for over a week now... theres nothing growing on the agar yet because its not solidifying at all. its still kinda slimey and still shifting in the petri dish when tilted. i dont think its supposed to look like this. now do i need to start all over or is there some way to help it set a little faster?? can someone possibly help??

you did something wrong with your agar recipe...
it should have became solid within 4 to 6 hours...easy.

please post the recipe that you used.

I have a feeling that you didn't add enough agar to the rest of the recipe.


and welcome to the Shroomery!~

I hope you enjoy your stay here!~

can you tell me what kind of agar was in this kit?

was it MEA or some other type?



it can get a little confusing...
partly because agar agar is a component in an agar recipe.

Example: -PDYA-
500ml water
5 grams of instant potato flakes
9 grams agar agar
10 ml honey
1 gram of Nutritional Yeast



other agar recipes for ya...

Agar won't solidify until it's been heated up to the boiling temp, and then cools. You're supposed to put it into a filterd flask and pressure cook, then when it cools enough to handle, you pour into petri dishes in a sterile environment.

umm yeah, im pretty sure we did everything right before we started. i have been reading different ways and instrucions on how to grow mushrooms before i tried to do anything. i did all that. im just thinking i put too much boiling water with the agar powder in the first place. i was just wondering if there was some way to fix it now. so thank-you for helping me out with the other reipies i an try so i can get started again....

yeah and i read the instructions like 3 times before i tried anything and checked this website and a couple others for different ideas too.... the kit i had was just an add boiling water to the agar in a container, let boil in a pressure cooker, cool down, then add to dishes.
