I think the Tree Oyster might be a failure. No noticeable growth so I think I might have transferred dead tissue. I'm hesitant to ditch it yet though, as there's no sign of contam either.
Also partly because Shiitake agar from dried mushrooms made into a slurry finally showing some growth. This is after 116 Hours (about 5 days). Hoping it's not contam, as it looks a little on the gray side.
Shitake agar from the stem mycelium is finally showing some progress.Here, the strongest out of the three Shiitake jars, after 116 Hours (about 5 days).
King Oyster agar are showing significant growth. Wondering if this growth pattern (cotton ball) vs. spreading flat over the agar surface is normal for Kings. Or does it indicate something, regardless of species?
Oysters display more tomentose growth on agar than rhizo growth in my experience.
