azurescens and bird seed
« on: March 26, 2009, 01:22:11 PM »

Hello everyone, new to the forum and new to cultivating. I would have to give myself an A for the results so far with B+ but I'm having no luck with azurescens. I have inoculated two quart jars of organic bird seed. I soaked the seed for a couple of hours, drained and cleaned the water then boiled the seeds for an hour and a half. This became the substrate in the jars that I  sterilized in a pressure cooker at 15 psi for two hours and then let cool over night. After 10 days of sitting in a warm closet in the dark there is no sign of any mycelial growth. I did not separate out the sunflower seeds. I used a syringe with a commercial spore strain. I did not use it all and I've ordered another. What is the best way to proceed? Go to agar then grain?
  Has anyone tried using the vermiculite/brown rice flour mix with azurescens? Is it possible to mix spiral dowels with the PFTEk mix and go from initial injection to wood in one step?
Thanks :huh:

Replying to myself. Yes it works with BR cakes. My current revised plan is to go from BR cakes to freshly chipped and sterilized birch and alder. Dishpan or jar? :wub:
