    THe joys of microbiologics and evolution. If you innoculate then the ones that can survive will and they will be the ones to continue to "breed" which will in turn give rise to more heat tolerant survivors. Cycle a few hundred generations in a months time and you should be set for a heat loving varient...

    cold is relative LOL, i also use another product called sub-culture, it is a combination of the T-22 strain with Pyro's favorite lil critter Bacilius subtilis (sp?) plus a few other critters

    there are at least 30 varities of trich, all beneficial to my knowledge, but some do better against this or that.. so the combination gives me a wide spectrum of protection and beneficial to growth

    Av

    IMHO it made cephs a whole lot easier to grow and grow well

    Yeah it should be fun. I've grown Kambucha tea cultures before with success. Auctually I've got mother cultures of Kambucha in the fridge lmao.


    How would I seperate the spores/fungi from the cornmeal/media when I want to innoculate something? I don't expect to get ALL of the cornmeal out but would it cause a problem in CP media?

    maybe just drench the cornmeal/trich and catch the run off, should be full of spores I would think...

    I know Ive read of more then one reference to a "Corn meal tea"

    but in large apps they just spread the cornmeal (golf courses, peanut farms, Texas A&M research project, etc)

    I was suppose to try this same experiment a month or two ago, but I really like the granular product and it is cheap enough that well.... ahhhh doh!

    This is by no means a controlled experiment, but FWIW here is a 5 month (+/-) photo journal of a ceph plant which has/is being treated with Trichoderma, this was my original test subject for the granular













    Caveats, I fertilize and I use a unique bulb combo and media mix... this plant's pitchers are now quite a bit larger then those pictured
    Of course YMMV
