"do you mean uncolonized grain was added to the mix?"

Exactly, the Taz. colonizes so quickly, additional sterile substrate can be added with colonized substate to increase yield without fear of contamination.

With a 3 to 1 ratio of colonized to uncolonized substrate, you can usually beat contams. Some growers use a 1 to 5 ratio when doing G2G transfers.

this is a little different than a g2g tho.. you are spawning in an unsterile environment. still nifty imo. risky but nifty. :-)

"this is a little different than a g2g tho.. you are spawning in an unsterile environment."

Although a bit different then a G2G,
the transfer was done in a sterile enviroment and the lid was sealed on the tupperware containers to colonize at 86 degrees.

The casing containers are not sterlie, just wiped out with lysol and alcohol.

Also, 2 holes were drilled into the tupperware lids and teflon patches added for air exchange.

A friend sent an update on this project.

A tray of PESA was cased in a similar manner.
The PESA was the first to fruit out of EQ, TAZ, and KOH.

This is that same casing (from above pics)
The very next day!
It's amazing how fast
The fruiting process happens!

This was my friends first attempt with casings.
All other work has been outdoor.

He enjoyed the process very much, and sends thanks and Love to Mycotopia.

The PESA is starting to show the unique pointed cap it's so famous for.

Ok, so here is the pics my friend sent
of the Tazmanian casings. (not quite as nice)

The colonized casing were removed from the trays for a bleach dunk and left out on a rack.

He's not sure why they are fruiting
from the sides instead of the top.
Has anyone had experience with this?

They look like cakes.

Cakes fruit from the sides.

Casings fruit from the top as that is the only place the mycelium get light.

Yep, maybe too much light from the sides? They are still awesome photos much like the rest of the thread. Can you hear the PC clink as this is typed? Sterilizing a few more jars over here as this is written.

thoes are the same exact

plastic

trays my FOAF has.

my FOAF said that thoes trays like to fruit from the side and bottom since they are transparent.

&

They may be fruiting from the sides because of over lay?

Some music would be nice right about now.

Don't you think?
