Cultiva symbioses

Recommended Posts

Oi gents, Maybe a bit of an odd quistion, but i was thinking what if i take a 10 gallon bag with light mix and i add fungi mychorizae, let it "boil" for some time in a warm climate, can i everytime take a handfull (as they multiply) to add this to my new ground in a new smaller pot? This instead of adding fungi from a ( for me expensive to buy) purchaseed can, each round.

 

Thanks!

No, is the answer to your question as far as it doing what you want.

 

Natural Farming or Korean Farming is what you are looking for to do what you want.

 

In this example, I will use a Trump but this is not the trump you will surely like regardless of politics.

I have done this.

My technique is a bit weird,but it works if you work clean/sterile.

 

You boil some rice in water laced with honey,make it so that the rice is half cooked.

 

Then grab a (sterile) weck and fill it with the cooled rice,close it quick.

 

 

Then shake some of them myco's into the jar,and close lid.

It will take 2 weeks on 20 degrees Celsius to grow,shake it trough every day.

And make sure that it stays DARK,otherwise it's compromised.

 

 

Then close your nose and open the jar. :lol: .....mix trough your soil and leave it to work for 2 more weeks.

Now you can see the myco-strings sitting in the soil around every rice-grain......

 

 

 

Then plant your plants in this spiked soil.

 

 

 

Jah Bless !

This could work for bacteria and some fungus but from my understanding mycos need some root to link to. I would add some type of germinating sprouts to the soil to activate the myco.

Liquid is drained before scooping in the rice,or it will be too mushy. ;)

 

 

Myco's need roots because of the plant's sugars,this honeyrice acts as a substitute.

Only the myco does not have to give stuff back yet for growing,and growth is as limited as the provided food resource.

 

How do you think the big company guys get it in a jar??

By cultivation....

 

If you really want to know more of ecto myco's,and funghi in general look at Paul Stamets on youtube. :search:

That guy is contradictionally amazing,be amazed what nature can do for us :book:

 

Jah blessed we with funghi !

it's a bit of work,but good things come forth from it.

 

Make sure that when you mixed it with soil,leave it in a bag for 2 weeks minimum,preferrably room temp. inna garbage bag or other dark plastic.

I use 2 bags to make sure its dark.

That way the myco's propagate through your medium,and is way pumped when u use it.

 

You can also re-use the soil,as the myco's stay in the soil.

Make sure u upgrade it as usual,and re-use rightaway.

If the myco's starve they will make spores which have to germinate first again and that takes some more time.

So re-use it right away,since there is no more food source(symbiosis) left.

In this case it NEEDS live roots right away.

 

 

Jah Bless!
