So I went to Europe for a month, trading mycology for sun, beaches and beautiful French women.
However, I did haves some projects on the go and nobody with the skills or time to entrust these projects to.
I had some p.djamor on the go in a Sporeworks mycobag (the revision 2 type). Also using a culture supplied by Sporeworks. It was very slow to colonize before I went over seas, probably because a mycobag doesn?t provide optimum conditions for this specimen and the conditions were not very well controlled.
When I got back, the bag had fully colonized, but was starting to look worse for wear -- looking like it was dehydrating.
I immediately opened her up, hydrated her, and pierced some holes in the sides. A mushroom rescue mission was underway.
Anyways, she?s been very slowly fruiting for the past few days and I thought I?d share some of the fruit with you. The pics aren?t great as it was done with my video camera under artificial light.
Note: I don?t seem to see any spores. I would have thought spores would be present as the fruitbodies are surely mature enough. It might be that I have one of the sterile strains which are quite sought-after by commercial growers (due to the fact that most oysters are prolific sporalators), or maybe I can?t see them (d?oh!), or maybe they?re just too immature, or just genetically f*cked!
Comments, feedback, heckles welcome.
