Have you guys ever had super weak Melmak?




Not really. Was not super impressed with my OG swabs but I never really put in any work either. Sure if I worked it I could have found a gem.

Not familiar with it if anyone can link.

I basically do a standard CV buckett & mix in 4 quarts spawn. Split that up in 4 Unicorn XLS-A bags & 3 weeks later they start blowing up

I cant get these fucking swabs to germ lol. I've tried two vendors, soft agar, firm agar, low nutes, high nutes. What works for you guys? I swabbed 3 cube varieties on Sunday and 2 of them germed today, still waiting for the melmac as usual.

Yep that is what I do basically. I skip the Gypsum in D's tek as I don't find it beneficial for cubes. I use hot water on a short 3 foot hose straight from my hot water heater cranked all the way up. I don't psuedo case yet in bags but have been doing so in tubs.  Standard jumbo smooth paper clips are cheaper too & work well.

I was chating with Pasty the other day & he mentioned something he noticed in his Mak TP runs & I find the same to be true in my trials. Spawn at 1 to 3 & see little to no reduction in time or BE.
Next up I am going to stretch to 1 to 4 & Psuedo case.

I have also ran at 1 to 2 + an additional 25% chopped cold water hard wood ash pasteurized straw for some 300% BE 1 flush wonders. Unfortunately my contam rate prior to 1st flush was unacceptable so I scrapped the project. Eventually might give it another go using heat treated chopped straw & a little more care.

Half my swabs work from streaking and half had to be broken off and stuck in the agar.

I’ve had bacteria almost everytime doing that but the myc will eventually pop up and outrun it.

This might take until I'm old and grey, but I have to say that I'm digging the bag tek so far. Clean, easy, tidy packaging and the colonization is fast not to mention it seems impossible to have bad conditions inside.

Here's the results of a clone I took of a melmac with a funny cap.



I know it is a terrible shoebox and has mold. I have been battling green for months now.

Bringing this thread back!

First try boys!!

It took months to get a good culture going and then into grain masters and then to g2g and into bags then finally fruiting.





I admit, bag growing is not my fav so far, and these two amount to the majority of my harvest in like 10 bags. However I'm pumped to have a couple excellent specimens for cloning. Tissue to agar is done so here's to the next run in monos going epic.

I haven't tried them yet, and likely will be recruiting someone else as I'm unable for some time but they sure look effective.

:wooawesome:

Hell yeah!

Let us know when somebody tries them.

I was so stoked to finally get PE looking fruits and then my friend took an eighth and said they were “mellow”.

Anyone have cultures changing colors on agar?

Mine turns brownish every transfer. It doesn't show up well in photos, doesn't look like any contam that Ive ran across before.

Here's a better pic of the brown tinted agar.

Came from a trusted vendor so I doubt it's shiitake. Im seeing this happen on multiple plates.
