Myco farm edible truffle kit grow instructions

June 8th, 2016

Myco farm edible truffle kit grow instructions

Everything you need to produce fresh sclerotia “truffles” (such as Pleurotus tuber-regium) mushrooms (except culture syringe). Kit contains: 650g Rye Injector bag, 10 mL liquid culture vial, swabs, withdrawing equipment. This is a two step process which would suit the more experienced cultivator. Wash and clean hands with alcohol gel and work in a clean environment.

Firstly, the culture/spores are boosted in liquid culture and, once growing, transferred to the rye grain. This leads to a more rapid colonisation and better yield in many of these species (however you could just inject a MycoFarm directly with P.tuberregium spores or culture but the results will not be as good and may even fail).

1 . Remove only the small centre circle from the aluminium cap leaving the rest of the cap in place. Swab the grey rubber centre portion and inject the liquid culture vial with approx 2.5mL of culture/spores. Incubate at correct temp (usually 20-25 C)

Mix contents by shaking gently every few days. Within 1-2 weeks, white fluffy growth of mycelium will be visible in the liquid. N.B. See photo: the liquid above the fluffy mycelia is still transparent – if it is cloudy even after being left to settle for a few minutes it may be contaminated with bacteria. If so, best to get another vial and start again (contact your supplier)

2. This step needs to be done carefully, so get everything ready, read through first and have a practice run. Work in a clean area. Shake the vial vigorously, swab lid (keep swab handy for later) and turn vial upside down so the liquid is near the cap. Withdraw most of the liquid culture using a sterile syringe and leave a small amount remaining in the vial. It is not necessary to get every last drop (and trying to get the last this may increase risk of contaminants entering). Before removing the syringe/needle, grip the barrel/plunger carefully to stop it moving and the contents being sucked back into vial under pressure. Try not to draw any extra air into the syringe. The alcohol swab can be placed over needle when withdrawing to reduce risk of contamination.

3. Inoculate rye grain bag using 5-10mL of the culture produced in step 1 using a process similar to a standard mycofarm. Swab injection port and needle before inoculation.

4. Mix well. The best way to do this is to fold the bag overjust below bottom white filter and shake grain around so it doesn’t come into contact with filters (as this can increase chances of contamination). Stand the bag upright so the grain is not touching the white strips and incubate in the dark (eg cardboard box) at room temp approx 18 – 25 C. Do not mix contents again. After approx 3 months and sclerotia will reach a reasonable size. Even longer (6 months or more) will give larger yields. During these long incubations some contaminants can sneak in but the kit can still sometimes give good results.

Always cover and discard any sharps carefully in a sharps bin or in a strong plastic container (such as an old bleach bottle with child-safe lid) and dispose of safely.

Smart Business: The Best Affiliation Ideas For 2017

December 22nd, 2015

Ever thought about starting your own gourmet mushroom farm to earn some extra money while doing something you have a burning passion for? What most startup businesses fear most is the inability to grow in the market they have selected. The lack of growth in terms of sales opportunities, as well as an increased degree of popularity and visibility can be combated by joining a well-established, powerful network or business association.

If you have zero experience with either of these topics, here are a few hopefully inspiring ideas for the year to come.

Myco Farm Affiliation – Why Not?

If you know someone who already runs a prolific Myco Farm, get in touch with them and see if they are interested in partnering up with you in any way. Affiliation almost always leads to positive chances in the life of a business, as it can automatically boost the number of potential buyers and prospects.

Getting started is not difficult, as our kit will help you complete a simple three-stage process that will potentially yield several hundred grams of mushrooms over a few crops.

Become A Ladbrokes Partners Affiliate!

Another excellent business idea that could involve your hobby is joining a top affiliate program like Ladbrokes Partners. Why? If you have a passion for online games or you are into financial products, live casino, or betting exchange, you will find the Ladbrokes offer one of the most appealing on the market at the moment. Their team currently operates in the following markets which are expanding as we speak:

Beat the Rush – Shop Online

December 20th, 2015

Online shopping – the Christmas rush

christmas shopping

The 21st century has heralded a huge increase in online shopping. While since the advent of the internet, there have been various degrees of online purchase opportunities, it is now one of the most popular ways to buy. In the run up to Christmas, many people prefer to go straight online rather than face the craowds at major shoppping outlets. In a December 2016 article in the Daily Telegraph it was claimed that at 8pm on the Sunday before Christmas levels of online shopping peak.online shopping Why you may ask? Experts at Lloyd Bank say that this is when a large proportion of UK households are relaxing in front of the television, which is a favourite time to browse. It was also claimed in the article that at 11am on the Monday before Christmas, there is a peak in higher priced items – this is when workers return to their desks after the weekend and feel pressured to continue with their shopping. It was also claimed that during the week many online shoppers peruse the local stores, before checking those same products online for good deals. In general however it was found that Sunday evenings between 8:30 – 9:30 pm was the most populr time for the placing of online orders (This figure was given by the retail giant John Lewis). It is only in recent years that the UK has begun to follow the American trend of Black Friday – the pre-Christmas, post – Thanksgiving day of retail carnage. Established by Amazon in the UK in 2010 it is now the biggest shopping day in the UK with some £1.1bn spent online that day in 2015! In fugures collected from PayPal, a third of all online sales which used this payment method, during the period of Thanksgiving through Black Friday, were conducted through hand held/mobile devices. In terms of types of purchases during this period, PayPal found that fashion was the most popular – although this may be more related to the PayPal merchants rather than PayPal customers. 

Online Luck 

jackpotAnother popular online activity is the lottery, and in particular the MegaMillions. In a sense it is another form of online shopping – but shopping for the jackpot and a way to fund further shopping sprees. Through the website https://www.megamillions-lotto.com/number-generator, an advanced lottery tool, numbers are randomly chosen by way of a mathematical algorithm. The number generator tool creates unique number combinations  – no two of which are the same. Each combination is personal and unique to the player at the time of play.
 
The MegaMillions Lottery is an internationally acclained and used lottery and is, in essence, the framework for the majority of worldwide online lotteries. So wherever you are in the world, you can play a lottery anywhere in the world, and all this from your handheld device. As the number generator is one of the most modern and advanced pieces of lottery related technology it is also used by many banks and other financial institutions. It has been tirelessly tested to ensure that users are protected from any potential breaches of security. Therefore players can rest assured that they are being taken care of in an extremely secure online environment.

What is CBD oil?

November 9th, 2015

What is CBD oil?

Many people ask us what is CBD oil? and is it the same a cannabis oil or rick simpsons hemp oil? The simple answer is no.

CBD oil is extracted from industrial hemp grown in Europe rather than from marijuana. The big difference between Hemp and Marijuana is the level of THC concentration. THC is the Psychoactive compound contained in cannabis/marijuana and is the part of the plant which gets people ‘high’. The other main compund found in hemp and cannabis plants is called CBD. CBD does not have an intoxicating effect but has been held up as the compound from which medical benefits can be derived.Both marijuana and Hemp  generally have low levels of THC, typically under 1%. Some cannabis breeders have created strains such as ‘Charlottes Web’ which have much higher levels of CBD and low levels of THC.

In order to get high levels of CBD from industrial hemp an extraction process is used on large volumes of hemp flowers and stalks to increase the percentage of CBD in the refined hemp oil. This Hemp oil at various difference concentrations between 3% and 30% can then be put into a variety of products such as sprays, tinctures, pastes, capsules, e-cig liquids and smokeable concentrates.

The great thing about CBD oil is that it cotains the high levels of CBD that many are people are looking for but almost 0% THC. This means that in most countries (including the USA, the eurozone and the UK) it is completely legal.

Many studies have been done into the medical benefits of CBD but none of our products have been evaluated by the FDA or MHRA and are not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease. Always consult with your health care provider before making any medical decisions. Do not take if you are pregnant or lactating.

Myco farm edible grow kit instructions

February 3rd, 2014

Myco farm edible grow kit instructions

The Myco-Farm TM is a complete kit for growing gourmet mushrooms at home. It is simple, high-yielding and fun!

The kit is suitable for people who want to cultivate edible fungi from basics using a culture syringe (not included). It is a simple three-stage process and can yield several hundred grams of mushrooms over 2-6 crops. No air pumps are needed – it is a very quiet and unobstrusive system that can be left on a bookshelf.

It is very useful to have a max/min thermometer so you can check your temperature range. Too cold will usually just slow things down at bit but temperatures over 35 C will kill many species.

Kit contents: Bag with injection port containing 650g sterile grain, swab, contaminant-resistant casing layer and humidity tent.

You can buy a MycoFarm here!

 

MycoFarm packed

MycoFarm in packaging.

Contents: 650g of sterile grain in a custom-made bag with injection site, swab, contaminant-resistant casing and humidity tent

You will need a King Oyster syringe (not included) for inoculation. Many other species will also grow well.

STAGE ONE – INJECT AND GROW

The first stage involves growing the white mushroom mycelium on a bag of sterile grain. We use grain as it is nutritious, easy to mix and allows the mushroom to spread quickly through it. This method is suitable for many different species of mushroom but temperatures will vary depending on the species grown.
Grain bag ready for inoculation
Wipe injector site and needle with swab.
Inject approx. 5 mL of edible mushroom culture. You can store the leftover syringe in the fridge. (N.B. Injecting more liquid won’t do any harm but doesn’t speed things up either). Stand the plastic up vertically. Incubate at 25-30 C in the dark (some airing cupboards are good or you can build an incubator).
After 7-10 days at the white mycelia will begin to grow. Once you can see a few square cm’s of white mycelia, you can speed things up by gently mixing the bags contents (Do not open the bag! Gently break up the grain and mix through the plastic with your hands). The mycelia will not be as visible after mixing, but it will regrow vigorously after a few days. It should be fully white (or “colonised”) within about 3 weeks at the correct temperature.
Stages of growth. The bag on the right is fully colonised (i.e. white). When the bag is COMPLETELY white with no patches of bare grain move on to Stage 2. If it is not colonised mix by massaging the bag without opening, check incubation temperature and leave a little longer.

STAGE TWO – CASING LAYER

“Casing” is a term used by mushroom growers to describe the addition of a top layer. Although not all mushrooms need this layer, it is worth adding as it greatly increases yields. Casing protects the grain from drying out and also provides a good habitat for baby mushrooms to form and develop. We now use a new type of casing – dry polymer in a bag (which replaces the older “soil” in a tub). The dry polymer requires the addtion of hot water before use (see below).
Take your bag of dry polymer then simply boil the kettle and add 1/2 of a mug of very hot water to the bag (careful not to burn your fingers).
Close the bag and stand upright for about 30 minutes until it cools. Shake to mix the expanded contents.
While your casing is cooling take your grain bag from stage 1 (which must be COMPLETELY white – if not leave it longer). Now mix the grain again by gently massaging contents through the bag and allow the grain to settle so the top layer of the grain is quite flat and level. Cut the top off the grain bag about half way up.
Pour the casing layer on to the top of the grain and shake gently to even out.
Fold over the top of the bag and add a couple of clothes pegs. Then cover the whole thing in foil – you should end up with something like this. Put it back in the incubator at 25-30 C for 3-4 days. This allows the mycelia to re-grow and take over the casing layer. Then go to stage 3

STAGE THREE – PRODUCING MUSHROOMS

Mushrooms are the fruitbodies of the mycelium – a bit like the apples on an apple tree. To let the mycelium know it is a good time to produce mushrooms we need to give it three signals: light, air exchange and a reduction in temperature. To do this we place the bag from Stage Two at a lower temperature in a humidity tent which allows light and air in.

During the last few days, the mycelium will have started breaking through the casing layer. Sometimes this is not very obvious.

Roll the sides of the grain bag down. Moisten the perlite in the large humidity tent with 1/2 a cup of tap water. Place the grain bag inside of the tent on top of the perlite. Peg the top of the humidity tent. Place the whole thing in indirect light at 20-24 C and wait 7-14 days. Near a window works well but not in direct sunlight. You can occasionally open the humidity tent and mist the inside with a hand-sprayer full of clean water if you have one.
After a couple of weeks you should see the formation of baby mushrooms (called “pinheads”) on the top of the bag. They are usually white (but here you can see the pink pinheads of Pleurotus djamor growing through polymer casing.
The mushrooms usually develop fully in 5-7 days. You can pick them by washing your hands and carefully twisting and lifting. Each crop of mushrooms is called a “flush”. Using the Myco-Farm several flushes of 150g+ each are common.
Once each flush is harvested you will boost future crops by spraying heavily for a few days to replace the lost moisture in the casing layer. Check out some recipes and enjoy! If you don’t already have one, you can buy one here
