Hey! I'm looking into Tyndallisation to fill the space between getting a PC. I was wondering what kind of successes and failures (Learning experiences ) People have had. I know it's a pain in the arse but is it worth it for small scale projects before committing to a good pc? - Cheers all!
So I put some stalled grain spawn in my worm farm the other day surrounded by straw and other sterilized grains. I checked today to dump some more grains and failed cakes that hadnt grown anything at all, and i found that the myc was growing healthy onto the grains and had spread. Will update with pics soon. Anybody ever try this?
Darklight posted a topic in MycologyI'm running a demo on inculating spawn bags for some people who are looking to do myco work with groups who don't have lab access ( mostly overseas ). These people have a long, successful, established track record with working with communities to provide sustainable food supplies and they're looking at expanding that concept with myco products in their food forests. I'm figuring that the best way to do this could be to work with myco syringes, providing that there are no import restrictions for either myco or syringes in the places where they run workshops. Apparently most of these places have pressure cookers, so sterilising spawn won't be a problem as long as we can organise a suitable substrate that they can reliably access ( kitty litter for woodlovers, wild bird seed... we'e still not sure... that's next ) Grain bags can then be used to drill/ inoculate logs or newspaper rolls These looked interesting: http://unicornbags.com/store/product_info.php/cPath/26/products_id/40 5" x 4" x 18" filter patch with silicon injection port But I don't need a thousand of them. I need a dozen to run a proof of concept demo for them just to see how it will roll and how easy it is to teach. Does anyone have a spare dozen filter patch bags with injection ports ( pref of that size ) they can post me? Demo is being run gratis, but happy to pay for the bags.
