Any recommend LC recipes for Panaeolus?


Recommended Posts

Hi All, is anyone here able to recommend any liquid culture recipes they've found work well for Panaeolus species? My go to is AL203's karo and extra light malt extract recipe which works very well indeed for all Psilocybe species I have grown, and lion's mane mycelium loves it to. Pan cambo and Pan cyan on the other hand show initial promising growth before things stall a bit. There is some mycelium present for sure, but it doesn't seem to be thriving like the mycelium of other species I have grown. Wondering if anyone here has found success with any LC recipes for Panaeolus?

I use the same recipe as you do, even for pan and mexicana varieties and all seem to do well, I'd touch base with Asura or Jake, I'm sure you know who I'm talking about.

Did you use a culture or spores to inoculate? If it was a culture it could just be that you need to switch the recipe. I’ve had cultures that didn’t do well after transferring to the same recipe that had been in that liquid for a long time. Switched to potato dextrose LC and the culture bounced back. 

I recommend using a completely different recipe.

You could also try turning up the heat a bit possibly depending on what the temperature is, or waiting longer.

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.

      I use an iso wiped flat head screw driver bit most of the time to scrape spore. Got lots of of them so why not? I do prefer inoculation loops, however. use whatever you have even if it’s a butter knife

      I don’t think you need to do anything special to get the spores onto the agar plate. I use a scalpel. I heat the blade to red-hot, and I cool the blade by sticking it into the sterile agar, then scrape spores, then ‘wipe’ the spores off the blade in the agar. I don’t know if others do it exactly this way, but it works for me. here’s one of three plates that I had inoculated from an Alacab print on 2/14.

      No growth on plates at all day 7. Good thing is my test is clear. So my gb is close to sterilize so that is good will help a lot with contamination. I need pointers on the best way to get spores off of foil please. Im begin to think i was unable to get spores transferred this time. i know it is still early give it a few more days. Hey if not then it is ok i got spores and plenty of plates ready to go again lol.

      Yeah you dont have lye in it, it would be green if you did.  If you burn it, it will taste horrible or sting the lips or throat. Properly vaped it is smooth like you mention and shouldn't hurt your lungs at all. You can do a sandwich method with weed, this will help keep from burning it if that's how you want do it.  Looks good to me, like typical yellow spice, and good job on the extraction!
