Why grow on agar?
    #784716 - 07/29/02 06:53 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

What's the point of first growing the spores on agar and transferring them to your spawning substrate? Why wouldn't you just inject the spores into the spawning substrate?

You woundnt use agar pieces into substrate that is already spawning. You use it because agar can make an other wise contaminiated sporeprint useful, by growing out the spores, you can cut the mycelia from the agar leaving contamination behind. Then you can put the isolated mycelia on a fresh plate of agar, let it grow out, then by cutting the pieces with the most ropy strands will insure strong fruiting, and by useing agar you have less chance for contaminiates to take hold of fresh substrate because the mycelia is already established and growing and will colonize the substrate quicker. There are lots of benefits to agar bluhoney
