Helllllllooooo....i was looking over the cloning vaults and stumbled accross this thread
Mycotopia Web Archive: CloningUsing Dry Tissue
i'm so excited that i can clone from dried mushrooms because i had some a while back that were absolutely killer (not sure the strain) that im definately going to clone....which part of the dried mushroom do i have to use? or can i use any part of the mushroom? i'll probably use agar to grow myceilum and then transfer to rye
thanks!

try cloning the inner tissue of the mushroom
keep your agar mix a little on the wet side so it would hydrate the tissue
mold and bacteria would normally grow faster than the dried tissue.. so as soon as you see myc growth, transfer it right away to another dish!
good luck!
keep us posted with pictures ;)

wow that sounds great! i can't wait to do it!

k so i've read the archives and i think i've got all the info i need on cloning...tell me if my summary is correct, just for clarification...so in summary i just take the tissue from the middle of the shroom, drop it onto the agar, put that petri dish into an incubator, transfer the myc to other agar quickly before contams get in, and finally transfer the good myc into a jar with PC'd grain?

thanks!

yup, thats about it.. but you might need to do a lot of cleaning..
you can skip the incubator part and just put it in a small cardboard container or a box.. something clean.. dont forget the parafilm..
i keep mine in room temp but our room temp here is about 28-30C
gluck!

i never thought you could as the tissue is dead and carrys no oxygen when dried out, if it works i will be happily suprised.:amazed:

I too have no agar or petri dishes. I am almost a complete noob to the physical aspect of growing, though I have been reading up on it for almost a year.

I'd like to see a lot more work done in this area.(cloning dry tissue that is)
Perhaps we can improve on the Teks that we have presently got.

my thoughts on dry tissue is that if at least a small amount of water is
still in the cells (vacuoles), the cell is still viable. If there is no water
left, call it dust and move on. if you can bend the fruit even the smallest
amount, you can clone it.

The tissue can be as dry as a bone and still be re-animated..Best to make a bunch of plates, as the success rate is much lower than fresh..

I've often wondered if you could resurrect old tissue in this manner. It's cool to see that it can be done!
