Very exciting day in the life of Meyer! Today, I just received 2 syringes of Ps. Hoogshagenii today and could not be more pleased. Based on the sage advice of a few members, but specifically, our king of ROCK, mlbjammer, and no, mlb does not stand for baseball.
I have been extremely focused on getting Bulk growing figured out as well as still trying to grow Pans. I have done very little research on these Semperviva's, but alas, the weekend is here and I will be reading on the best way to start this new species. I am open to any advice from any vets out there, but it doesn't seem like there has been any grow logs or discussions of these since 2010 or 2011.
As always, I am open to and appreciate any advice and do not mind any thread hijacking as long as we stay on topic. I will also be using this species and trying to grow it out on agar, which is also completely new to me. So you can follow and watch me as I learn Agar and how to grow this (new to me) species.
A. Using 3 pre-poured Agar Plates and putting some spores on each plate to start. The nutrient in these Agar plates is called Luria Broth (LB).
B. Attempt a small test grow while the Agar plates are growing
Step 2: Start a grow utilizing the Agar (Hopefully).
More to follow as results and or approaches get setup.
