Still Sterile?


Recommended Posts

Someone was kind enough to gift me a spore print of Alacabezi!!  Many Thanks!

 

Any way I followed the print to syringe tek to a tee (I'm very process oriented).

 

I noc'ed 2 jars of WBS 10 days ago...no growth...

 

Can or should I re-Innoculate?

 

I understand that casing or substrate that has been Pc'ed can keep for a while...

 

I have 6 jars of PC'ed WBS still waiting to be Noc'ed up. (Pc'ed 11 days ago).

 

Should I re-PC them or are they good to go?

throw the jars out that you didnt use and start over.

 

wait longer on the other ones you noced up, and i would probably noc more, personally.

yes. they might not be contaminated, but they have lost moisture content. the jars will likely never colonize fully, or be very robust. its best to use grain spawn immediately or within 3 days

      A big gap.  It was a story about ayahuasca and antibiotics that got me wondering about mixing the two being a bad idea.   Thank you for the input.

      Intriguing and harrowing case report of someone who injected themselves with mushroom (P. cubensis) tea...spores included. He nearly killed himself doing this, and was on ICU life support for multiple-system organ failure for some time. He had bipolar disorder type I and had been researching ways to treat his opioid dependence and depression, and was intrigued to give psychedelics a try. One very weird take away from this: "...the species of mushroom he had injected was now growing in his blood". Not only did the mushroom spores survive boiling, but they germinated and started growing in his bloodstream according to this. Curious about the wider evolutionary implications of this pertaining to the mushroom...given how tough and resilient mushroom spores appear to be, it calls into question the hypothesis put forward that psilocybin acts as a repellent...perhaps it more likely acts as an attractant. Makes me curious about the association of P. cubensis with bovine dung, perhaps bovines are ingesting spores and helping distribute them...I wouldn't put it past those crafty fungi. https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7mp74/man-injects-magic-mushrooms-they-grow-in-his-blood Study: Giancola et al.

      Thanks guys. I inoculated the LC via an agar wedge. Although the mycelium in the LC looked a bit lackluster, it does seem to be colonsing jars of rice/dung without issue. Time and heat definitely isn't an issue, the room the LC and grain jars are being stored in is nice and warm, and initial growth was rapid. Thank you for the recipe switch recommendation...I will definitely try this if I have issues.
