Re: P. Semilanceata sclerotia????????
    #85267 - 05/02/00 08:50 AM (16 years, 8 months ago)

hi... im currently growing semi mycelium to do sclerotia...
as semilanceata mycelium grows slowly.. i used masive liquid mycelium to innoculate phalaris canariensis seeds as final substrate
i used also little jars to make the mycelium colonizate it faster...honey liquid tek works nice with semi wild sporeprint....
Nacho
hope that in 2 months the first semi stones will be ready.. see the Gartz books to see a picture of semi stones

I was aware of this but I have not seen it in any of my semilanceata cultures. Either it is difficult to induce or it just doesn't happen with all strains. The Gartz picture just shows some lumpy mycelium in a flask, hardly a practical method of production. If semilanceata stone production occurred with any regularity, you should be able to dig them out of the pastures where they naturally grow.

Since semilanceata is an extremely slow grower, stone production would be even slower. I have a cultivated outdoor bed of semis growing currently. I will mine it for stones this summer, but I seriously doubt I will find anything.

For what it is worth,

I have played with quite a few semi cultures, all originating from Washington, Oregon and BC. They have been incubated for up to 6 months on sterilized dung, grain, and sterilized straw (jar cultures). I have never seen any stones form :frown: .

If anyone has success with this it would be good to make a detailed report, I know I would be interested.

hi,
i have been trying to cultivate semi's, but they seem to be very stuburn. i've tried many different substrates, and all with no success. i think i might try that small jar and millet method and see if things work out. any suggestions? zapotec

well ...seems that semi species is a difficult one... but im happy to say you that my strain from pyrenees has colonized a little jar of about 150 cc volume of birdseed -phalaris canariensis- in about a month... using honey liquid mycelium... this is very quick colonization rate for this mushie i think...i used 4 semi different prints initially and only one of it developed agressive growth...probably there are big difference between strains... Gartz talked about it...Anyway seems for me that the mycelium needs more air into the jars than cubensis mycelium... the colonization speed in the best jar is similar to the tampanensis.. i innoculated the same day and with same tek similar jars with tampa and semi micelium... and they are in similar state of growth...

Digging for semi stones in the alpine pastures can be a hard work if you dont know exactly where semis grow... i wonder if digging in the last part of spring or early summer is the best time... as snow remains in the semi locations until final april in my mountains...and semis start to fruit usually in early september and even in the middle of august in some places...
a word about semi strains...the ones im using comes from sandy soil... and extremely hot places in summer... i asked myself if the ecological factors as extreme weather fluctuations as in the spain mountains can be a factor in the development of esclerotia in this strains...and in the mycelium speed also... i have scientific papers with the complete chemical analysis of the exact location of alpine pastures soils where semis grows they included PH, trace elements, and lot of interesting information like phosphorus compounds etc... if anyone of you are interested in this information email me for details.

I would be interested in trading some semilanceata strains. The Spain version sounds interesting. I have local coastal Oregon. I am having pretty good luck outdoors with my local semilanceata. The patch I planted last Fall has fruited continuously since December. I see two more fruits this morning.

phalaris canariensis seeds seems nice to use in slow mycelium growing species... they do not clump together in anyway... and jars can be shaken as when using rye... lot of kernels...... yes workman strains may differ a lot between europe and america... i sent prints to ryche some time ago.. i have only pieces of prints right now... next fall i will look for prints in places where im gonna dig in the early summer for stones...i keep you informed
