These tests aim to understand if starch plastic could be a good substrate for micelia. After a lot of experiments, finally I found the plastic that has the right consistency to be spread on fiber.
(bio)plastic recipe: #2.1
4% Carboxymethyl cellulose sodium salt
2% PDA – potato dextrose agar
0.1% Ammonium Acetate
Micelia used for the test:
POS 1 _ pleurotus ostreatus
GLU 2 _ ganoderma lucidum
GLU 16 _ ganoderma lucidum
Recipe #2.1 after 4 days and 8 days:
How does the mycelium explore boundaries and build bridge connetions from landscape morphology?
This test allows to understand mycelium’s behaviours of growth through PLA substrate.
To do that a 3d printed mask was insert into a petri dish before the sterilization.
LIGN _ Lignosulphonate bretax C 1,5% + AA 1% | pH: 6,12
CELL _ carboxymethyl cellulose sodium salt 1,5% + AA 1% | pH: 5,92
GLU2 _ ganoderma lucidum (inoculated on 18th of September 2014)
POS1 _ pleurotus ostreatus (inoculated on 18th of September 2014)
ARM _ armillaria mellea (inoculated on 18th of September 2014)
