Magic Truffle grow kit instructions

The growing process for Magic truffles is a bit different as you would expect. They grow undergound!

Inoculation

There are two ways to inoculate the Mondo Magic Truffle kit:

Spores

You may inject spores directly into growth substrate. This is a little less work but takes longer and occasionally not enough of the spores germinate.

Liquid Culture

For much quicker colonization, and larger yields you must first inoculate and colonize a Mondo®Liquid Culture Vial and then inject the liquid culture into the bag of growth substrate.

Spores of sclerotia-producing species can take longer to germinate on grain than typical mushroom species so liquid culture can provide a shortcut.

Inoculation Steps

Step 1:

While holding the injection site of the substrate bag with one hand, lift the two plastic tabs with the other hand and gently tear off the plastic disc protecting the injection area.

Swab with fresh alcohol swab and let dry.

Step 2:

Remove syringe and needle from bag. Remove the plastic shield protecting the needle (twist clockwise then pull). Do not touch the tip of the needle to anything else or it must be re-sterilized.

  • If utilizing syringe and needle from another supplier then it must first be sterilized.
  • Needles may be sterilized with a flame.You want tip of needle to become red but must be careful not to overheat and melt the area where the needle is attached to the plastic.
  • Always let needle cool before injecting it.
  • Additionally, do not breath directly on injection sites or needle.

Step 3:

Push the needle of the syringe (filled with colonized liquid culture or spore suspension) through the injection site of the substrate bag.

Inject with Spores:

Use the injection site to guide the needle and inject 1 to 2 ml into each corner and along the sides of the substrate bag.

  • Let the solution drip down the sides of the substrate bag. Include several drops on top of the substrate.
  • Each drop of liquid culture represents a point of growth so the more evenly the substrate is injected, the quicker the colonization.

Inject  with Liquid culture:

Use the injection site to guide needle and inject 1-2 drops into each corner and along the sides of the substrate bag.

  • Let the solution drip down the sides of the substrate bag. Include several drops on top of the substrate.
  • Each drop of liquid culture represents a point of growth so the more evenly the substrate is injected, the quicker the colonization.

Colonization

Incubate the substrate bag at the appropriate temperature , typically 22º to 24º degrees Celsius

Spores:

Within several days to two weeks spores will germinate (little cottony growths) and the fungus will colonize the bag over several weeks. If germination (growth of the fungus) is not evenly distributed throughout the bag within 14 to 21 days you can speed up colonization by gently mixing the bag's contents. Only mix the contents of the bag one time so that the fungus can then complete colonization.

Liquid culture:

Within 24 to 72 hours the fungus will spring to life and in one to two weeks colonize the substrate, depending upon the species and strain.

Harvesting

Although you may begin to harvest the sclerotia earlier, it's advised to wait 12 to 24 weeks minimum before harvesting. The longer you wait, the greater the yield, and the larger the sclerotia become. Speed of colonization, yields, and characteristics vary between species and strains.

Pour the contents of the colonized substrate bag onto a clean table and separate the sclerotia from the grain. Store in refrigerator or dry until crisp.

Over a month and no activity. If it was my first time growing I would understand. I bought 3 XL mushrooms trays. Very very very little fruit. 1 gave nothing. Review by Michael (Posted on 9/12/2019)

Did as the instructions said and nothing so far. Its been over a month and not one bit of activity. I also bought 3 xl mushroom kits, 2 gave minimal fruit, no second cycle. The third (albinos) did absolutely nothing. This is not my first time growing but will be my only time with this company. The delivery was fast and the website is very easy to navigate so something positive! Review by Michael (Posted on 9/11/2019)

No signs of activity. I did everything as I should have and nothing. It's not my first time working with these materials. I bought 3 XL mushroom kits in top. Only 2 went to fruit and I barely got anything. It's my own fault for trying a different company. Review by Michael (Posted on 9/11/2019)
