reishi grow log (sort of)
    #714832 - 07/01/02 03:35 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Remember, oh a month or so ago, Ralphster44 gave away 10 reishi cultures to 10 lucky growers?
Well, I was wondering how everyone's getting on with them, as I haven't seen any posts about them.
For myself, I've made a couple of new backup plates on peroxidated MEA, which the mycelium seems quite fond of.
I've also inoculated a 2 pint jar of pasteurised hickory chips with agar wedges.
At first nothing much happened, probably because of excess water, but a handful of dry perlite and a couple of shakes later all the chips are at least partially colonised.
The mycelium is rather thin looking and doesn't seem keen to jump from chip to chip. I'm thinking that hickory is not the best substrate, but it's the only wood I can get, unfortunately.
Maybe I'll try toilet rolls for laffs
So what are the rest of the gang of ten up to?

The culture was perfect. I made some sawdust spawn and buried it outside in a shaded location. I'm also trying to fruit it indoors (17C and rh=80%) but no results to show so far.
I also made wood dowels and going to inoculate some logs.

Cultures:







Grain spawn:

Now what?s to do? I intend to fruit it straight from the jar, unless this is a bad idea?

Thanks Mycotek. Seems simple enough
one thing confuses me though...
"You could just poke some holes in the lid and wait till you see antler formations occuring and then you can pop the cap off and the antler will naturally conk out when it reaches the fresh air."
woudn't that snap the "antlers" off? or is that the point?
or did you mean wait until I see antler formations inside the lid, and not growing out through the holes?

Ah, well the chips are packed right up to the top of the jar, so I'd better do the foil thing. I assume there's no need for humidification until I remove the foil?

hickory chips for flavouring barbecue smoke, from Homebase.
far too expensive really, but I don't know where to get hardwood chips.
actually, I tried a little experiment to see if reishi would colonise spruce bark chips and it seems to be doing fine. Whether it would fruit or not is another thing....

a few weeks ago TrAnCyNuGz said:
"I am thinking about ordering The Reishi Mushroom Patch from Fungi Perfecti, they are supossed to give you a non-narcotic spiritual feeling also"
anyone know anything about reishi having any psychoactive properties?
I read something along those lines somewhere elso, but I can't remember where or when

looks like "something's happening" already.
the mycelium has crawled out of the jar and a bit down the side, and is getting a cauliflower-like appearance to it.

Looks good to me. I didn't make it to this phase.
At what temps and RH are you keeping it?

Good luck
