There is no agar in those tubes, just wood pegs with mycelium on it, the condensate is because they where kept in a fridge.
The shipping will cost the same for vials or bags, in fact, I put the vials into a zip-lock bags, extra safety.

The pegs are cut with wire cutters, you can also snap them, PC them in a small container.
You can add agar to the bottom of the vials, using folded card with holes.

The added agar will prevent rolling, touching and drying out.




If shipping is the same for vials or bags then vials would obviously be the best option.  I was thinking the little pegs could be put in a small bag (maybe an impulse sealed bag) and sent in a normal envelope.

I've never shipped anything out of the USA but assume the cost would be pretty high.  How much does it cost to ship your pegs from the UK to the USA?

I'm going to try sterilizing some pegs and see how some other oyster cultures will grow on them.

10% bleach peg to plain T-Gel, no gelatin:

Working as intended, the mycelium visibly looks healthier. The mycelium has pushed about 15mm from the peg.
The growth is radial, so the full diameter is about 30mm, the growth has changed around the edge.

The new growth is more populated, thicker and more visible than the starter growth.

----

Side note:

The added gelatin improves BE by 50% in comparison to plain T-Gel.

10% bleach peg to plain T-Gel, no gelatin:

Total growth is currently 45mm in diameter, +15mm, +7.5mm center to edge, since yesterday, and still accelerating.
PSA + ammonium chloride produced a 50mm diameter after 4 days for Pleurotus ostreatus (see here).

The T-Gel plain, without additives, is relatively close in speed, but can take more nitrogen.
Adding MG nutrients or adding proteins, had an almost identical effect on BE.

10% bleach peg to plain T-Gel, no gelatin:

Here are some images, sorry for the quality, condensate due to temperature changes in the room.
Growth is almost perfectly radial, and uniform, the outer growth is improving.

Now some visual side by sides, various days, not timed.

T-Gel with added gelatin and added MG nutrients:

I told the vendor of the Tarragon dowels I am patient and would rather a good batch.
Today they have arrived, I will be using this culture for backup samples.

   

Comes with a fact-help sheet.

10% bleach peg, WL-Tek + 10% CaCO3, trial:

Started another trial, in a similar way to the 10% bleach peg. I added 2.5g of ultra fine calcium carbonate, for 25g of paper pellets, to my water.
The mixture of CaCO3, Miracle-gro and yeast nutrients produces no side effect gasses, or anomaly's, it mixes perfectly.

If I added bleach to MG and YN, toxic gasses would be released, do not do it, literally ever!

The end pH is an average of 8.5, the unreacted CaCO3 will convert overtime.
Water retention has increased slightly, the smell is cleaner.
