Hello Mycotopia,

Here are a couple pictures (with more to come) of my projects:

This was my methodry behind the madness:

Four edible cultures on petri dishes were obtained:
Reishi
Shiitake
Lions Mane
King Oyster

From the colonized petri plates, inside of a sterilized bin (a quick glovebox), i sucked the mycelium from the dishes into 4 seperate syringes with sterilized water in them.

Then i prepared 4 Karo jars, and innoculated each of them with the 4 species floating in syringes of sterilized water.
-The Karo seemed to work well for all 4 species btw.

Then i waited a week or so for the Karo jars to show growth, and then sucked up a good amount into 4 more sterilized syringes.

Then, knocked up some PF tek Brown Rice Flour / Vermiculite jars.. and waited a few weeks for them to fully colonize.

Then put them into quart jar terraniums (didn't dunk them but i should have), chronic tek style; and waited another week or two and so-far here are the begining of mushroom growth.

2 pictures, The first one is the Lions Mane:

The second one (hard to see through the foggy), is the King Oyster shroom:

Pretty cool eh? Look at those Lions Manes !~

Anyways, thanks everybody, 1st and foremost, thanks to the member who traded me these excellent cultures (from a Stamets seminar, la-dee-da), and also thanks everyone else who took the time a while back to help discuss this project.

I'll post more pictures later in the week, hopefully the mushrooms will be fully grown by then.

One more question,,, how am i supposed to get my mushrooms out of the jars now? They appear to be trapped inside of quart jars, quart jars w/o wide-mouth lids..you see?

Keep shroomin,
Cjar

Oh and i forgot to mention, the Reishi possibly contaminated somewhere along the way, and also the shiitake i think.

We've already seen shiitakes done on PF cakes; i would assume that the reishi could perform well on them also.

far out
would that be strain dependant ,the results , or should this be possible with any lions mane or king oyster ?

Cool project

The getting them out thing is why I think
inverted deli containers are preferable to
jars! (Of course wide mouth would have
helped.) :-)
