Okay thank you very much for the info! One last question, this may be very nooby but if I added extra agar power to compensate for it not solidifying and I reached a consistency that the agar did solidify when cooled could you see any obvious complications come time to grow mycelium on it?
Next time I will definitely be following original tek word for word until experienced enough to begin experimenting but I just didn’t want to throw it away and tried to make the best of my situation.

as long as you can't pour it like a liquid  it'll be fine. if it is too stiff spores wont germinate on it

If you like, Munchauzen has a recipe for pasty plate agar, down to the gram, which works really well for me.

https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/23188000

His newer recipe (the one in the text), apart from being soft, has a slightly lower nutrient ratio, which I found was more likely to result in rhizomorphic cultures, which are a bit easier to work with IMO.

No question about it...I neglected this plate. Hopeful for something - transferred strong sections to ~7 dishes last night, even though I am way way late (i know). Crazy how random plates take off sometimes...

how long have you guys transferred from pasty plates?

Anyone know of some ways of keeping pasty plates from getting dried out?

i have some that are dried up

a bunch that have full fruits

some have pins

and some have normal mycelium that doesn't look too dry

Just wanted to say thanks for writing up this tek! Just did my first A2A transfer (first time at this hobby period) using this tek*. Pasty to Pasty if you will. Hot dog, 24 hours after transfer the growth is exploding, and even the plates I cut from appear to have accelerated growth although maybe I'm just excited. :laugh: Inoculated first pasty plates from MS syringe in my SAB, but when I did my transfers I also tried my hand at print to pasty of a different strain of cube. This is so fun! Granted I failed at my first attempt but I was happy with what I learned and am determined to get it right with the help of the incredible resources available to me here at shroomery.

*I have been using a cheap digital instapot wannabe, however I am awaiting the arrival of a new Presto 23qt stovetop PC so I am excited to not have to PC 3 plates at a time for 3 hours each until the cows come home. Then I'll be officially pasty-ish or something.




Quick tip.. put a small splash of white vinegar in when you use the presto.. helps keep it from building up white crap all over the inside.





what are those white crap you speak of? I see tons of it in my antique 21Q AA canner... it develops tons of white crap more so when I leave the canner for a long time...

You got this, remember to never let your hands get above/over your plates.

Are you in the US? Places like Wal-Mart, target, and other big box stores have them.

Just got back from Walmart and they only had the small size (2 cups) and not the mini. Maybe they just need to stock up?

Sometimes they’re just in a different aisle. For whatever reason in my local Walmart they’re not with the rest of the Tupperware. If not you could try ordering them online.

Yea I searched around and couldn't find them, the walmart website only had the small size listed. I'll check the Target and a different Walmart to see what they have, though!

If you have them in your area, I consistently find the Betty Crocker minis at Dollar Tree.  They also sometimes have 50ml centrifuge tubes in the craft section, if you plan on making slants.
