I've had some leftover bulk substrate (Coir/Coffee/Vermiculite/Gypsum) so I figured
I'm going to experiment a little.
I've never spawned sclerotia producers to
bulk before, always cased the straight grains with decent results.
Had a just fully colonized quart jar of rye with P. Mexicana/Jalisco, so I layered that and the
bulk in a 2" deep tray.
It colonized the coir in just three days.
Cased it with some pasteurized seed starter mix (basically a 50/50+) very thinly, and put it
into a SGFC.

Dude, these are awesome pics!! :bow:

I love the sclerotia species, and there isn't alot of info on them, so thanks!:bow:

I'd be really interested to hear your report on noticable differences, such as amount of stones per jar avg. per species. Also do you find colonozation times or fruiting requirements to be any different?

They're my passion.
First of all, let me state that I've found the absolute best substrate
for stone production to be coffe soaked rye berries.
Colonization and fruiting temperature requirements are about the
same - they'll do great in room temperature.
As far as species related info, I' will gather all my info and post it
in a few days.
Just to sum it up...

Best stone producer - P. mexicana/Strain A
Unfortunately this is very difficult to fruit.

Easy to fruit and 2nd best stone producer - P. galindoi/ATL#7

Fairly easy to fruit and average stone producer - P. tampanensis

Fairly easy to fruit and poor stone production - P. mexicana/Jalisco

Here's a guide I wrote about substrates/inoculation/fruiting/printing
on sclerotia forming species:

How do you guys like the Guide?
Also - where should I post the .pdf as a new thread?
I think (at least I) it deserves it's own thread...
