Mushroom farm: step 4
For this stage we will prepare a support that will receive the mycelium, we will soak millet seeds in the water (this all the night), then boil them and finally dry them in the sun. The mycelium needs a source of sugar that it will take from cereal starch to grow. (Click on the photos to enlarge)
We will incorporate the seeds into glass bottles, then sterilize them (previously they have already been sterilized).
Sterilization, we had to buy and import an autoclave that we found in Thailand. we went to the border and then we mounted the different parts of the autoclave (manometers …), we also created a user guide in English and Laotian.
The autoclave has three baskets and holds up to 180 bottles. Just put a little water in the bottom and incorporate the bottles in the basket.
They will then be put in a room waiting to receive the cuttings of mycelium, step of cuttings that we will see later.
Next step: Incorporation of Mycelium
