Re: Corncobs Revisited

Correct me if I am wrong, but is the old husk of corn more readily contaminated than wood? Wood is a very selective substrate, and almost no sterile precautions are needed when working with it (depending on the freshness of the material). I know that corn is very high in glucose and dextrose, and wouldnt these allow contamination to occur at higher rates than those of wood? Just a question, I am not being critical. I would really like to know, as if cubensis would fruit on it, and it turns out to be selective, then we have a new substrate to evaluate and consider.
Peace

I assume the husk would be, this is the core of the corn, the cob. It is highly resistant to contams and favors mushroom mycelium.

However in past experiences it wasn't a good fruiting substrate because it needed to be amended. By itself without amendments, it was a good spawn expansion substrate though. And you can pick em up pretty reasonably at the "Pet SuperStores".

Who started the experiments anyway.. JaFF??
Anyway if you got some cob and want to fruit woodlovers on it I'll get you the amendment recipie for your jars.
