Mine always look like a jar of piss too.  I've only ever used oat water for LC though. I think I'm providing too many nutes because expansion is slow and never as full as I'd like.

I'm really excited for this LAGM log. I wanted to log my last couple grows and never got around to it. I wish I had because most of my photos were lost when a flash drive went corrupt in the middle of a transfer. :smbfacepalm:Any way, for LAGM 2021 I'll be working with Avery's Albino and Yeti.

I've only previously worked with prints and never used swabs before so this could turn into a big fat fail. Regardless, anyone who's interested gets to witness it. These swabs were sent from D3 who also sent me a Rusty Whyte print that performed excellent.


I thought I knew what a psychadelic experience was until those little bastards grabbed me by the nuts and made me their bitch for four hours. It was a beautifully terrifying ordeal. Maybe I'll write a report on that one of these days when I can gather the words to explain it. Here's some of the fruit and the tea that showed me how much I don't actually know about this reality.


Tonight, I poured some plates. I used D3monic's Agar Tek. It's the only agar recipe I've used but it's been so good to me that I haven't found a reason to try anything else. I used 8g Light Malt Extract and 9g Agar Powder. I planned on pouring 40 plates but I let the agar cool too much and the plates started getting clumpy towards the end of the run so I stopped at 34. It was a disaster. Agar started to solidify on the mouth of the bottle and I ended up pouring a big streak down an entire stack of plates. Hopefully it didn't hurt anything. I'll wait about 10 days and if I don't see any visible contams, I'll go ahead and swab em.

Hey Roarkell lovin’ you mixing things up with the Gyms! I don’t know what I’m doing with the baeos but I’m happy someone else is doing some wood lovers. I got your APE swabs to germ and have 8 grain jars noc’d up doing their thing. I plan on using spores from that grow to mix with a Melmak swab I have left over from my last grow...

My plan is to swab the APE fruit with the swab that already has the Melmak spores on it. Question for all, what do you guys/gals think? I think it’s a viable way to get a cross going. I only have one swab left of the Melmak as I traded the rest out. Luckily it’s a qtip and I used both ends. Any other ideas are welcome, I just won’t be able to try them all when the time comes.

If it were me, id do the double up swab on one end and streak a few plates that way... and then do the other one opposing zip zags and watch for germination at the intersections...

Same here..My last time MSS to agar I only got 33% of my plates to germ so I'm pretty damn anxious this time. Checking on my plates 5 times a day isn't making them go any faster either lol

I dig it. I saw someone do the opposing zig-zags a page or two back and noted it. Thanks for the input.

Did you streak those swabs I sent you?

Hah! I know the felling. My galindoi plates are the first time I've used a swab and it feels like it shouldn't work.

When I bust out my first swabs ever, hopefully this week, I will use a small hemostat to pull off a small chunk and smear it all around.

LAGMA 2021 Post:


January 5thish?
 
I decided to keep this simple this year. PA+ (Penis Envy Uncut crossed with AA+) This is only the F3 of this cross so I am not sure if it is stable yet. As a control I decided to also do AA+ and see how they turn out.


So the prints:



And the set up. I did a simple inoculation loop swipe on to two plates and now we wait for germination.



Plates are inoculated.



January 21 Update:

Both Plates failed because I dropped them into water. :facepalm:

So LAGM2021 Restart!

PA+  Penis Envy Uncut x AA+
Amazon X Mystery Cube
True Albino Teachers
Rusty White x Melmac F2

I will get some updated pictures soon but all 4 plates where streaked today using Eats Q-tip method.

That's what I did for all of my LAGM germ plates. I ain't fuckin' around with swabbing plates or snipping bits off. These bitches gonna germ whether they like it or not. Can't tell you how many times I tried to germ PE spores to no avail before I tried dunking the swab.

hoping that's the case for my APE plates, last time I tried just swiping and got nothing

pretty sure I'm starting to see some faint germing on an LPEU and a couple Yeti plates, we'll see tomorrow. I looked over jakeoncid's pan tek and I think I might throw those on as a late addition next time I'm in the SAB, been sitting on this print for a while. Never tried pans before and the tub system looks like a fun build.


--------------------
It's probably fine. Even if it's not fine, it'll eventually be fine. So it's fine.

That's what makes me nervous. I'm doing APE and PE from MSS. If I dont get germination in about a week I'm just going to make some BRF cakes so I can start cloning. Is there a prize this year for being the very last person to harvest?? lol

Damn I wish you had told me that sooner. haha. I always carry some hemostats in my pack in case me or my companion get a fish hook in our foot on a walkabout. I try to not take thing out of my pack for fear not putting them back so I always forget I have them......  :pondering:  next time.....

Of course I’ll use a little more agar in my recipe for firmness and finish each smeared chunk by pushing it into the surface for good measure

I used a loop on a swab a couple times recently with success.  Was much easier than tweezers and such imo and worked great. :thumbup:  Only reason I still have any angulospora or subsecotioides spores left lol.  That said,  I am glad I finally swabbed my plates last night.  I can see my breath inside and not expected to warm up for 36hrs so would have really been dragging ass waiting it out to work comfortably.  Excited about these gym grows I see.  Waiting on a jar of lute spawn to finish right meow and have been hawking the GLogs for more grows...:creepylurker:

It only makes sense to me because if I can’t get the first plate to germ that way, I’d imagine I won’t get the second to either. Then as a last resort I may just plunge the swab, but I think dabbing the way in some sterile water then smearing is a better option for using the whole swab

Never thought about a loop. Good idea

This is becoming a discouraging thread to follow after hearing about all your issues getting PE and APE to germinate on agar lol. I think I'll get some BRF cakes going in a day or two just so I have some fruits to show while I keep working on PE and APE plates
