A lot of times the top layer doesn’t really colonize if there’s enough fae to dry them out.




A.k.a, thanks a bunch for the knowledge dropped here! I was wondering why some of my sclerotia jars looked like the top grains never wanted to colonize.

How long until a spore Prnt is useless for agar work?


How long will a fully col jar of spawn be useable to make more jars?

Prints are good for years. Probably 10 years is around the max.

Anyone know why I got mini mushies? Look at the little guy on the left.
So far only one fully matured, so maybe the rest will grow bigger, but its about 1½ cm lmao.

Moisture has been fine throughout.

just genetics by the look of it. is that MS? also, I will never vouch for unmodded tubs. there could probably be some more FAE going on in there.

Spawning more tomorrow. I guess I'll try a modded one this time.
Yes it is MSS to grain. And you before you judge me too hard, I have a2g jars coming up. I was just impatient and did this with a syringe I wasn't using while I was cleaning up my agar.

I have 2 more quarts of MSS that I will be spawning today or tomorrow. Will be interesting to see if they turn tiny as well.

Yeah I'm going to ride it out and see what happens. It's bittersweet. My first grow and its like this. But at the same time it was pretty funny seeing that tiny little thing in there today. I cut it off and ate it.

Dude you should be real happy! I grew mold and every color of the rainbow contamination before I got a mushroom! And it took a whole summer!  I built a damn room out of wood and plastic, quit smoking inside and eventually got it going.

Your off to a great start!

Thanks! It was fun doing it, so I'm definitely going to keep trying.
I've been real confused about contams, because I have had almost none even though my sterile technique is pretty bad. I have had a single agar plate contam with bacteria, out of about 60. No jars so far that I could tell.

I've even gotten pissed off during transfers from failing and started stabbing the agar aggressively to get the damn transfer off. I have dropped plates upside down. I exhaled directly into an open agar plate from close range (5cm or so). No contams.

Makes me wonder how much environment actually plays a role, cause I live in a relatively new, super clean apartment with an air cleaner running 12 hrs a day.

When mixing LC, how important is it not to splash the filter?

I have a single piece of tivek siliconed to the lid on a pint jar. I used bod's broken glass mixer idea.

The jar is only 1/2 full, but I can't seem to swirl it fast enough to get the glass moving without liquid running up the sides towards the filter.

Have a just over filled it? Or am I being too precious about wetting the filter?

Well how long do you plan to keep it til you use it? I make a lc and then after about a week  fill up a couple syringes and throw those in the fridge and use the rest on a project.

Don’t be gross, practice good sterile techniques and keep stuff clean. I don’t want to see you back asking “ is this contamination!”? I want to see you posting big beautiful canopies!

Do you know if refrigeration in a sealed container helps for sporeprints and swabs?

What? You do know that mushrooms spores can survive traveling through outer space right? I’m sure they will survive in your fridge for a while with or without plastic…

I appreciate your feedback, but it didn't really answer my question.

Sterile technique is not a problem, I'm fussy about being clean. I normally use gtg, but I'm using slower cultures and also moving into gourmets.

Gtg is easy to keep clean, but I'd like to better understand LC.

I will use it grow out cultures, and also for limited time cold storage so I can cycle between cultures without starting over. I don't need/want slants right now.

Is it critical to keep the tivek filter from being splashed? Is tivek water proof/splash resistant?

I can't work out how to stir it properly without getting it wet.

you can just use completely sealed containers next time since it doesnt need extra air. or you could wait until right before your going to use it to shake it real hard.

... Wait... unmod lids are ok for LC?!

Why do nearly all the teks use breathers?

I would much prefer unmod, but I assumed contam risk or some other good reason for the extra fuckery.

:blush:
