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".
