fruiting Pink oyster
    #999576 - 10/28/02 11:53 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Ok, i've got this bag of straw colonised with pink oyster mycelium, it was pretty damn wet so I took it out of the bag when i put it under fruiting conditions. I cold shocked the thing for about 17 hours and put it in a big translucent super humid container at 75 ' F. Its been about 4 days now and was wondering if this thing is going to pin or not.

I've been giving it lots of light and fanning it, but was wondering if perhaps It was too humid (condensation forming on it, but no drips), or perhaps i need to vary the temperature more?
or am I being impatient?
any suggestions?

It's fully colonized? For sure, for sure? If so, it'll spontenously start to fruit in all but the most challenging conditions. Be patient, young grasshopper.

Please do let me know how it works out. I suspect doing the above and waiting a little bit will bear fruits.

Take a large poly bag....put the straw back in it....take knife....cut star-shaped holes in bag...hang bags in approximately right fruiting conditions....watch it fruit..... ;-)

I'd actually MISSED the fact that you said you took it out of the bag....I think the above will encourage it....if it doesn't, there's something VERY wrong. P. djamor should almost spontaneously fruit on substrate domination.

Green?! As in trichoderma type green? Or a green tint?

Any sign of bacterial infection?

a green tint, if i leave them for long enough they go tricho-green, but i always remove them before this happens. This knotting is really odd, it more like a lumpy bubbly sort of stuff, like... ooze?

sorry about the vague description, i wish i had a decent camera.

i'm guessing it's some kind of contamination, i've had bad trichoderma before and it didn't look like this.
