Cultivation / strain isolation w/ pans
« on: December 02, 2008, 07:01:36 PM »

When isolating pan cultures on agar I don't see sectoring as with cubes.  What characteristics should  I be seeking?     In the past I always stuck the densest,  fastest growing myc.  but had less than stellar results come fruiting time.  Was this my choice of isolate or just my in-experience when growing pans?   Thanks for any help!

Cultivation / spawn to bulk
« on: November 19, 2008, 06:26:57 PM »
Three days ago I added grain spawn to pasteurized dung/straw.  It has become very stinky.  Sulfur like smell.  The sub was heated for 2 hrs @ 160 Is it normal for bulk subs to stink before the spawn run is complete?

Cultivation / caseing
« on: October 19, 2008, 09:05:33 AM »
Most of the caseing recipes in the tek and abroad are of the  non nutritive type.  I've been having success caseing with a mix of dung, straw, worm caseing, oyster shell and vermiculite.  Obviously nutritive.  Then a very thin layer of verm. on top of the mixture layer.  Are there disadvantages to this method?
