I'm excited to be working with Albino Penis Envy!  They're gorgeous and I can't wait to see them in person.

 

I was gifted a single cc of APE spore solution.  I started by making a simple liquid culture of filtered water and karo syrup (4% karo syrup by volume).  I put three quartz marbles into the LC too, to help with swirling and breaking up the mycelium.  It was pressure cooked for 25 minutes (I think) at 5 p.s.i.  After it cooled, half a cc was used to inoculate.  The LC was shaken vigorously once at the time I inoculated it to reintroduce oxygen into the solution, and then swirled gently every day as it colonized.

Once there was enough mycelium in the LC, I inoculated a test jar to make sure it was clean and viable.  Happily, it is doing great:

More jars were inoculated today.

Meanwhile, the test jar is getting close to being done:

The test jar will be done well before the others, so it will get its own personal grow chamber and it will give us the first fruits.

Nice cakes, brother. I don't know that I have ever seen APE on cakes. I am subscribed.

Oh, and Gnome definitely has a thing for those albino girls.

Coming along nicely.  :biggrin:

 

The test cake is fruiting now.  They look a little funny, I think, because I tried fruiting in a two-liter coke bottle at first and it was too small... there wasn't enough air in there or something.  Now the cake is in a tub and I think it's recovering.  I'm fanning a lot.

The rest of those babies should start pinning soon.  They are taking their time, I bet cuz they're PE.

That's awesome, man.  Love the double stacks.

 

Sounds like you needed a few more holes in the 2-liter.

...or any holes... doh!  I didn't even think of it.  I cut it in half and was fanning it with the top part.  It definitely wasn't sealed tight when it was closed, but it must have been tight enough to be too tight.

Probably a row of small nail-sized holes near the bottom of the bottle would do the trick.  I never tried that, though.  Just brain-storming invitro.

You know I love this, Sidestreet. :). I too agree that It's definitely that they're PE. Don't think I've seen APE on cakes either. :ninja:

Impressive!
Uh, I do hate to sound immature, but the bottom fruit looks vaguely familiar.
