My twisted g.s. agar tek experience. Need some input
    #8809829 - 08/22/08 09:34 AM (9 years, 5 months ago)

A couple of my spore syringes have been in the fridge for a while and after doing some grain jars I have the feeling the spores lost a bit of vigor. So to I decided to do the grocery store agar tek (thanks to Helltick for this one). Then I stumbled over an idea by Sir GabbaDj  (my respect) to use pint jars and to whirl the agar up the sides of the jar.

So nothing new under the sun. Made some lids with silicon and polyfill stuffed holes for gas exchange. Have a look




I am afraid I used a bit to much agar. Will the mycelium be able to "eat" it all up? Finally when I am doing my syringes shall I insert a coin or something similar to loosen more mycelium? Or is that not necessary?

Next time I will do fahtster's "-Fahtty Isolation/Mycelium syringe tek-" or simple mycelium water a la RR or agar. But I really wanted some first hand agar experience.
One drawback is that you can not really see the mycelium. And whirling the agar around even aggravated this. So now I know why pros use petri dishes, you can see what is going on ( and I really love watching mycelium).

All input appreciated.

some extra agar wont hurt mate,  you can store this culture in the frudge for long time with that amount of agar, much nutrients. :thumbup:
