Why can't I find portabella spores/cultures?
    #8523851 - 06/14/08 04:59 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Greetings, I have been growing psilocybes for a while now, and want to try my hand at some gormet mushrooms, portabellas, oysters, and shiitakes in particular, but I cant find portabella spores or cultures anywhere, why is this? Can anyone tell me where to get them, if it is infact possible?


Otherwise I have some potato dextrose petri dishes, could i possibly clone them from the store somehow? cut off a section of gills or something and lay it on the petri?

thanks!

I believe one of the vender's has some port cultures, cloning from store ports is possible, rip the stem in half and take your clone from there, don't go with the spores because it takes a long time and/or its complicated to get them to germinate. I haven't seen anything legitimate on it on the spores.

Gill sections are best. I've gotten a few isolates from starting with gill sections of a store bought mushroom.

By cloning gill tissue, you get spores, leading to fresh genetics.  Hopefully, those genetics are good for fruiting.  You can get Port cultures from stamets, or any of the larger culture banks.  Get ready to pony up $150+ for a  culture slant.

Why do some sellers charge almost ten times the price as other vendors for the same shroom culture , is it that it's from the elite of that species , or do they just over charge ?

i would say its most likely the vendors reputation and ability to overcharge, you know?

The majority of the mushroom strains in stocks are collected from wild specimens. It takes some work to acquire clean cultures from these mushrooms. On the other hand, strains from species that are commonly cultivated are acquired from indoor grows and are proven to be productive fruiter's.

I have a Portobello isolate I can send you if you don't have any luck with your project. Give the plate a couple of weeks to see what happens with it. It's much more satisfying when you have success with your own work. But if you have problems, just let me know in 2 weeks.

excellent!!! your generosity is most appreciated, i will give my project some time to see if it pans out, i agree its more satisfying when you have success with your own work, besides i need experience with these petri dishes and all their functions, but if it does not pan out i would appreciate your assistance, and would return the favor in any way possible

I just thought I would update you guys, I stuck some pieces of a portabella mushroom on a petri dish and got a CORNUCOPIA of shit growing in there, lol, most disturbing is the Pin Molds – Rhizopus spp., they are covering 33% of the petri, and grew fast (overnight). Lots of bacteria in there, and what might be trich (cant tell yet its still white) so im aborting this mission, lol, makes me wonder how clean the shit in my fridge is tho, and the stuff i get from the market, scarey

Try looking for Agaricus bitorquis, its easier to work with and fruits better at normal room temperatures than Agaricus bisporus.

Crimini are the same as Portobello. They're just a white, small fruit body producing strain of A. bisporus. Harvested at button stage as well.
