mycelium growth
« on: July 19, 2004, 01:17:54 PM »

I hear a lot of people talking about how to grow mycelium in kern jars
IE. PF Tec. I think this test will do not much except waste your time.

I know from reading real books by real doctors with PH D. that it grows
either on a culture, ie. pettri dishwith agar.
or in natrue if you are lucky. eack mushroom grows on something different. i
take the guess work out!

1 make a pot with a layer of soil that has been sterilized add moss, then more soil
mix a fine layer of dead wood and straw.

 every thing you mix must be sterial

2 find a spot away from the sun , ie under bushes , etc,  

3 mix in the mycelium you grew in the dish with the agar,

4 spritz with water and keep damp, remember , sterial water.

handle mycelium with sterial spoon, etc.  dont worry about bad bacteria.
nature doesnt. Pick and use book to make good ID, then eat
