Spaghetti anyone? here are some shots of the two nugs today. The last 3 are various aspects of nug number 2. Odd shaped and am trying to enhance air exchange and getting as much light as possible though it's not helping. Maybe next flush the weather will cooperate and I can get 'em outside for a while during the day.

I wonder if it's senesence? Where did you get the strain?

Did you cut off all the plastic? you should just cut slits where you want it to fruit from... Not sure what you have going there... odd looking indeed...

Yeah I know I should just cut slits, but leave it to a dumbmyco to mess things up. I may try dunking and placing back in bags for second flush and try the slit method. Rodger, they came from a well known and respected member who participated in the 12 Days of Xmas contest at Sporelab. No matter how they look I am sure they will be still be delicious. And it's a very cool thing to look at when I go to fan seeing the little idiosyncracies of fungi.

Are oysters edible (desirable?) in that crazy pinny-coral form?

our friend in europe who grows oysters, fucgu.,
got similarly shapped fruitbodies so i don't think it's senesence. perhaps some environmental factor is cause.

It's very strange. Oysters should be nice and fat. High CO2 levels appear a likely culprit. Here's one of mine on straw.

High CO2 levels and low light seem to cause that coral look




what're the right parameters during the process ?

You want very low CO2 levels during fruiting. We need to simulate the mycelium colonizing a fallen tree, then finally reaching the edge where the air washes the CO2 level to near ambient. Both oyster grows we've seen here that had that coral look were grown in rubbermaids. That may be the key. Try that same strain outside the terrarium and see if it makes them grow normaly.

Will do as I have another pint to do G2G in the fridge and may try for a second flush just in open air with slit bags after a dunk. You will see some stalks are trying to form what look like caps in my next pix. Thanks Hippie and as I venture into other edibles I will post grow logs.

IMO what you need is both more fae and light. The coral formation is usually due to low light, whereas the long stems with tiny caps are caused by high co2 levels. You seem to have a combination of both.

Thanks Brainbreath but I am working during the day now so will have to rig something up or birth open air with slits as recommended. About to PC some more oats for a G2G of the last pint of spawn I have and will go from there plus other flushes fruited differently may come around. I will wait til tomorrow to post pics of the pathetic growth forms, tho cool, not quite what I pull off elms while gathering morels.

fae=fresh air exchange
>600 ppm co2 is the optimal level, you need around 6-8 exchanges per hour to get them to fruit right.
