Spore

Hey guys!

Newbie to mycology here, started with PF tek a while back and ran with it about 6/7 times with great success. Started then to get annoyed with buying spore syringes all the time at £15 a go so then moved onto trying to make my own syringes after making a few prints. Surprisingly I got it perfect first time and haven’t needed to buy a syringe since. 

I’ve just had my first go at using grains for a mono tub and the results are mixed this time........

Welcome to shroomology Spore!

Yes why would you grow mushrooms and not take prints, a never ending supply of future mushrooms! Good job nailing it first time!

Once you get the mono tub grows down you'll have more shrooms than you'll know what to do with.

I’m a newbie so taking prints didn’t really occur to me to begin with as I just wanted some results! I’m slowly learning and enjoying it a lot. 

I will post my monotub grow to show everyone my mistakes and successes on my first go!

Hello and welcome! When you propagate mush from your own print, it’s very rewarding and exciting 🤗

Right! Once you get mush, ALWAYS take a print.

       Hey guys, Iv'e been sorta practicing with agar(in 1/2 pt jars), I've isolated a few sectors from a couple cube varieties and am growing each isolate out to see which gives big flushes/fruits, and I'll take clones and make a mono culture for the genetic strains I like and make master cultures.  That's my plan, but I already have like 15 "donor" jars(I'll be buying petris eventually) that I took sectors/fruited from, so what do you "real mycologists" do with all the damn extra mycelium?  I couldn't possibly noc-up and fruit out all these globs of myc I have, but I hate to kill it by tossing it.  if anyone can think of some cool ways to use it for experiments or a way to utilize it for fruiting out in a huge tub, or layer it in straw, or preserve it, please post your ideas in this thread, I hope to see some creative ideas posted on here!  Winter is cold as hell where I live, and if I toss it in my garden compost, maybe it would survive the cold and go dormant until spring, then thaw out and colonize the compost in my garden.  I have thrown old cakes out there and they started pinning then frost killed em, could mycelium survive freezing outside and then thaw and live?   Thanks, "real mycologists".

      Are the possibilities endless? Or should we be boring and stick to what we know works... Some of this stuff probably has potential!

      At my local Lowe’s this was the only brand of peat moss they had. Is this ok to use or not?? I don’t wanna fu** up, I’m to close.
