Update:

Cleaning up these spores is going as planned and moving in the right direction. Still some contamination, but getting much cleaner now. Below are the cleanest ones followed by a couple of the worst and dirtiest ones for your viewing pleasure lol.

Update:

 

After 3 transfers from the leading edge of the cleanest growth possible, I now have 3 clean plates, completely isolated from any/all competitors. It only took me a little over 2 weeks to get them cleaned up, and they were very dirty. If I had made a syringe with those dirty bastards and inoculated spawn or substrate directly, my results would have been terrible, even if I was a spore syringe master which I am not. This is why I love and use agar exclusively for all of my mushrooms.

They are all now ready for LC, LI or grain inoculation. One could also continue isolating and testing each until a great culture is found. But I am only interested in a quick grow to replenish my spore bank, so these are going via LI into manure/BRF/verm cakes in PP5 containers. Final updates to come in the next few of weeks or so.
