I made a slant for the hell of it.

half of the agar boiled out in the PC but I went for it anyways. Will probably be a pain in the ass to get anything out of it.

Also I didn't realize how long these tubes were when I ordered them.

but if you were asking about the variety its GT.

How'd you get that transfer all the way to the back of the tube? Also, you should fill it more.

I’m guessing a strategic drop or mega long tweezers.

I hear yah. I actually filled it 3/4 full but it boiled out in the pc.

I made two of them both times I placed the transfer on the Popsicle stick.

after I wrapped em with para-film I hulk smashed em.
:hulk2:

One remained stuck, so I don't know if it'll propagate to the agar at all.

The one you see there I just got real lucky and it made it all the way to the bottom.:naughty:

Not sure how I'm going to be able to take anything out of it when the time comes though. Unless it grows all the way up the wood.

lol I’m gonna make my first slants soon now that I’ve found some good clones.

I would’ve made mine the same way, so I’m glad you brought that up.

I’ll make sure to fill mine up way more so the myc is closer.

I'm worried I made my grain water agar plates too nutrient-dense, my growth is fairly slow. How long does it typically take for a transfer to fill a whole plate?

I've been running 1% nutrition on my plates and have seen great results... most of my plates are fully grown in 10 to 21 days.

Grain water always sounded inconsistent to me. I guess, if you have your grain tek down, that can be alleviated.

I figure the best way to achieve consistency is going by the shade of brown tint in your liquid. I'm thinking it should be mostly clear with just a faint brown tint.

That sound right to anyone who uses grain water for either agar or LCs?

Using around 7g of lme per 500ml mine still take two weeks minimum to fill out a whole plate.

Probably closer to three.

Yes, 100% Oat broth. Because..."The basic idea was this - what I mostly want is a strain that does well on grain and bulk, but I don't really care what it does on agar.  The mushrooms express different enzymes for digesting different substrates (possibly through epigenetic switches) but it takes them a while to do that when you move myc from one substrate to another, or even from one agar formula to another, and of course genetics vary spore to spore.  Hence some people keep strains more vigorous in storage by switching them out on different agar formulas, etc." -PrimalSoup

I haven't paid attention to how long it takes a plate to fill out.
I thought letting it go to the edge is bad. So I take a transfer and that plate gets put aside.

Also I like to put food color in, so currently it's blue...:shrug:

The straight broth from boiling the Oats.
So, I go for 6 or 7 spawn jars. Which is around 2.75 Oat jar
and 8 L water. Then, when done, I save Oat broth in 500mL water bottles.
10g Agar, 7.5g LME, 500 mL Oat broth, food color. Filtered w/cheese cloth.
Also, I PC the agar extra, 50min, because of the Oat broth.

Hi all,
noob here who's been slowly trying to learn how to use agar. So far have made a few transfers since inoculating a couple of plates with a syringe. So far I feel as though the growth in most of my transfers looks funky. I feel like I'm either growing/transferring a random mold, or there's a contam hitching a ride on top of the mycelium. Can anyone give an opinion based on the pictures below?

Thinking about tossing the plates and starting over with the syringe, don't know if it's worth it to continue propagating a shit culture.
Thanks!
