Live cultures (mycelium porn)
    #8788565 - 08/17/08 11:27 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

Here are a couple of healthy live cultures I managed to sneak out of a bag of shiitake plug spawn.  It is a 4% organic honey mixture.  The wood pieces in the far jar are what was colonized in the bag.



I got the mycelium by filling a syringe (and sterilizing) with the honey mixture, injecting it into a side of the bag and drawing it back.  Then I injected it into the jar without wood pieces.

I then cut a larger hole in the bag and fished out a couple pieces of wood with my sterile x-acto knife and placed them in the other jar. 

After I threw a band-aid (literally) on the bag and closed up the jars, the cultures seem to be doing well and the bag has recovered.

Enjoy!

I'm no expert, but I'd guess that if it is growing in the honey water it'll grow on my sawdust cakes or whatever I do my next set of testing on.
