So I grabbed some myc from the inner stipe of a store bought pleurotus eryngii (king oyster/royal trumpet). I had it on some grain spawn and attempted to fruit it "oss & oeric" style, out of the top of the jar like they do on farms.
Oss & Oeric:
Anywho, it got wet bubble disease and I spent the next 48hrs cleaning as the spores are a bitch and infected a red boy culture. I'm not sure if the parasitic fungi piggybacked in or infected the jar via airborne spores.
Cut to now and I have placed the same culture onto PF cakes and I don't know if I'm being paranoid or vigilant. Take a look and see:
This is the picture from today (above was yesterday), I've ditched that top cake as I didn't like how globular the growth looked. It hasn't shown the amber droplets that shows up with wet bubble, but I'm not convinced that it's disease free:
Anyway, I'm not sure if I'm crazy or not (well about this).
Any help/insight/observations would be appreciated!
