also notice that the mycelium covered mainly the chips inbetween the compost....while the B+ did exactly the opposite with the same substrate...also the B+ and GT that i grew on this substrate were triple the size...

BiO,
Haven't been able to check in for quit some time now, but success is sucess either way you look at it. Thought second pic would stir mor interest than first, but true results just the same. This can be a difficult specimen to deal with, and I think you have done fairly well, considering the norm that most experience. Please post any other research results you may encounter. Hoping on one or two more personal reports like yours that may enlighten some of us that wish to duplicate some of these results.
Peace as always

Heh Heh,
BiO, by previous post, I meant a little more detail would be greatly appreciated. Guess I still just get lost in the pics! Still whould like to see Mavericks results on this subject, if any to report. Falls to MJ lines and advice, but more true life experience info desired, just the same.
Peace as Always :smile:

some details:

the substrate is a compost made out of pinewood/pinebark shreddings...this stuff is heatfermented and free from any competitors...i inoculated from a jar with beech-chips that i get from my terrarium/reptile shop (chips are precooked and then mixed with bran 5:1) 1 jar was enough for a 20 l bag of substrate...my advantage is that i can buy that stuff in the gardening store (10 bucks for 50l)...
i mix spawn and substrate (non-sterile) and fill in trays...leave them at roomtemp for a month or so and then in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.....voila...pinning.

BiO

the azurescens experiment that i have conducted was a complete failure or success depending upon which side of the fence you are on, the mycelium colonised quickly enough, i birthed the cakes on cardboard which i had wetted and sterilised, the mycelium overran the cardboard in just over a week, but then I had just 2 cakes that were usable the rest got contaminated, the temps here in india are very very high now between 95 - 110 deg F, i used a 12 hour refriegreator cycle to initiate pinning... pins did appear, but unfortunately at that temp bacterial contamination was bound to follow, i surgically removed part of the tray in which there was contamination, i got three shrooms, which arent so great, but i think i know for certain with a little more care and help from the climate gods, next winter i will surely get azures to fruit indoors.... but winter is a long way away, and i have been out in the countryside, touching up, a sabbatical of sorts...
I have a print for amazon cubensis, should start work on it in a day or two....
I was wondering any chance that i can wrangle a gulf coast cubensis print, i would exchange stuff for it, since i dont have access to them green dollars !!lol
drop me a line if someone can help me out !

BiO & Maverick,
Thanks for posts and experience. Everything gleaned is definately worthwhile.
Maverick, sorry I can't help in this particular circumstance, as no actual experience. Just hoping I can add to what limited info and experience I have logged. Everything helps! Congrats to you both! :smile:
Peace

Hi, nice pics, and congratulations! However, the mushrooms don't seem to be bluing where bruised (azures go almost black!), the stems look too yellow and no sign of veil remnants / spore deposit on any of the mushrooms pictured. How long does it take for pins to reach maturity?

I would say these look more like pholiota nameko/Pholiota mutabilis. Could you perhaps take some pics of a cross sectioned mushroom showing the gills? Sorry for the criticism, but i'm a perfectionist :smile:
