Nice. I haven't nearly enough deets to say if you have a snowball's chance in hell at being successful but you seem intelligent enough to pull this off. Interesting choice with the sauna. How hot did it get in there?

sauna would be such a rad room to set up the SAB in, dang. I wouldn't bother with heating it first, though, that will just create air currents from the convection created by the heater. still air box in a room with completely still air is :thumbup:

a tip for you, since I can tell you are very resourceful in digesting teks and methods - in the advanced search, specify that you'd only like to see threads newer than 5 years old. There have been so many advances in recent years that your brainpower would be better spent looking at those. The peroxide stuff all sounds like the kind of stuff that used to be done before more failsafe methods were proven out in recent years. It can be very alluring when you're new to the hobby, but as you dive further in you'll look back and realize all the ways going down that path would have made things much more difficult for you in the long run.

Cool to see you've made the effort to figure this all out.

Ok I have the plates at a constant temp of 80 degrees. Anything else I need to do?

It currently gets to around 160f. It's actually broken and I'm heating it with a space heater which I removed before I did the SAB work. Figured it couldn't hurt to heat it before I started. I know 160 isn't quite enough to kill most things but perhaps it killed some. Also the temp had cooled down before I got in to work.

Spores printed! Only I left them on for way too long. I thought I read that they needed to be there for 24-48hrs. I don't know how I got that idea but it's way wrong. Anyway it's done. I'm drying them in the sauna at 80f. Would you recommend scraping a bit off and putting it on the agar now? I'll need to reheat the extra agar and go buy some ketchup cups. I'm guessing you'll say yes so I guess that's what I'm doing. Also while I'm out I'll buy birdseed. I found 5kg pretty cheap. It does have corn but it seems worth it. Would it make sense to use birdseed for my spawn jars as well as my fruiting chamber? I'm going to start fruiting in 10L buckets to start.

I haven't inverted the plates yet because I'm worried the pieces of stipe won't stick to the agar. How long should I wait? It's been about two days.

In my experience 2 days and you should see growth , should be good to invert but I don't see the need to.

There is no need to invert. Keep them in a temp stable area and you're good.

Ok there's definitely a bit of white fuzzy edge on some of the stipes in the agar. Not seeing any contam yet. I did invert them because there's a bunch of condensation in them.

I'm going to make foil envelopes for the spore prints and possibly hold off on putting spores on plates because I have all these stipe plates going right now.

Going to soak my WBS overnight and rinse and PC and make some grain jars and let them sit a week or two just to ensure they are sterile.

So far so good.

I made some WBS following @mushboy's "24hour soak no cook" tek. Only mods were I didn't skim (there weren't many floaters) and I actually ended up soaking more than 24hrs accidentally. Because I can't find my big PC pot I instead laid my jar on it's side with the lid tightened and propped on a jar lid. Seemed to work fine.



One of the plates looks pretty promising. Nice fuzzy growth coming from the center. Do I need to wait for it to grow more or can I just add it to the WBS? It looks free from contams as far as I can tell. Can't say that for some of the others.

I have never seen such quick learning lol

Good work. I hope to see how this turns out and if you get some fruits!

Hats off sir.

Because I'm using these stupid little connecting containers I can't get a good luck at the mycelium growth. Only one plate looks promising. It grew white fuzz (not fluff like bread mold but doesn't appear to be branchy either from the angle I'm looking at it) from the center right out to the edges. But it's hard to see if it's mycelium or contam. How can I tell one from the other Is contam usually not white? I have this WBS spawn jar ready to go but I don't want to waste it on some random white mold. Any help would be appreciated. None of the other plates look good so I made go to plan b (spores) sooner than later if this one plate turns out to be contam.

Also just for fun I added a bit of moisture to that dirt/manure/mycelium sample bag I collected and broke it up a bit. Probably could have done that sooner. It doesn't cost me anything to give it the right conditions and see if it will colonize. If it does I'll treat it like a spawn bag and try to fruit it.

My mushroom project has been on hold for awhile (53 days according to the old post warning). In the meantime the WBS spawn jar I made about 2 months ago got moldy in the last week. It was pretty good for awhile and had I used it sooner it probably would have been fine. I think the cap wasn't fully sealed and I hadn't taped it.

Of all the 12 agar plates I made only one looked uncontaminated (creamy white). I had been intending to spawn it but I kept putting it off. I looked at it this morning and there's a mushroom growing in the plate!



This is encouraging me to spawn that plate so I'm going to make another WBS jar and spawn it in the next few days.
