Gymnopilus Luteofolius Multispore Mycobag
Posted 10 April 2009 - 05:56 AM
- Multispore culture, Sporeprint by "Blimey Grimey"
- Rye grain spawn (14days)
- Sterilized (2,5hrs.) Substrate mix: Softwood/conifer shavings (pet shop) 40%, Beech chips/sawdust 40%, 20% wheat bran (14 days)
- 2cm Casing layer: Pot Flower Soil, pasteurized
- Temperatures: Spawn 27-28 Degr. Celsius, Fruiting 22-23 Degr. Celsius
- Pins 20 days after casing was applied.
Spores germinated easily after 3-4 days. Gymnopilus mycelium grows very dense after germination and does not become rhizomorph or very thick, it stays a bit fluffy. It's pure white on grain spawn and does not hold the wood chips together as strong as edible and woodloving Psilocybes do. Odor is Cubensis like.
This is a first attempt and I am not very satisfied with the results but want to show it anyway. I am working on new cultures, maybe I'll try an isolate.

How is the potency compared to cubes?

Tek is very well put together and pefectly descriptive.
When using the mycobag how did you fruit it?
I use bags for spawn culture but have never fruited from one as I use a greenhouse.

But I'll ask the worms in my compost how they'll do...:)
About the growing with mycobags-
I just case them with soil. So it's very important that the spawn isn't to wet, because there is no drainage possible.
I think there's something wrong with this culture, probably to wet inside the bag. I have just inoculated grain spawn again, we'll see in a few weeks...
Or perhaps there will be a better 2nd flush. I'd like to have some more spore prints.

I have enough very dark and perfect prints, so I'm 'through' with them.
