I had two wedges. One bitorquis and the other lions mane. Once they

start to take is there any hints on which is which? I had so much stuff

out i forgot to label them. I have never grown either of these so I don't

know the difference between the two. Though I have heard lions mane

mycelia is thin and whispy sometimes barely noticeable. Any help would

be greatly appreciated thanks.

This isn't the best example of lions mane but it will give you an idea what to look for

I have just made transfers to agar plates two days ago. I will try to get another photo later once it grows out.

I would also say that the lions mane will be slower to grow out on your agar than the bitorquis. Post some photos for us to see that may help to identify your plates.....

Great. Thanks. Once they take I'll get some pics up.

The lions mane mycelia looks pretty distinct there.

Hey Mycropharm I just stopped by to see if you had any luck with your spores. I had just transferred isolations when you posted this. Well it's been a while and this is a sample of unmistakable lions maneimage.jpeg this plate is at its optimal growth for inoculation to grain spawn. Hope you have your plates going and identified.....

No real luck. They are just kinda sitting on the agar. I have a jar colonized with

a plug of definite lions mane dowel so I'm gonna give that a go. :unsure:
