I wasn't really expecting anything to come from it, but I decided to bury one of my cakes that showed signs of contam after it was 100% colonized. I found a nice shady, moist spot under a banana plant in some high-clay soil. I topped with basic potting soil mix. 1 1/2 weeks later, voila!

You are truly magical MagickMan87 !
I advise this all of the time. Contaminants usually cannot withstand outdoor conditions and the fungi go on to do their thing - just like in a cow pasture. A contaminated project is not necessarily a loss.
Way to apply what you know!

I've probably missed more outdoor grows than I can count - if I don't put it somewhere close where I can check, they'll pin, form, and dry / die before I ever see 'em - I've gotten smarter in my old age & put them close to my normal route :)

How do you keep your fingernails so neat? Mine always look like I just deg myself out of a shallow grave.
You should spawn that entire box ...

Maybe that tray will colonize that box!

Gonna have to try that.
So just toss them in a shady spot and cover them with substrate and make sure they stay moist?
Do you break them up or anything?

I made 2 other outdoor spots in my flower beds. I found a shady spot and dug 2 holes about 1.5ft deep. I mixed up another big batch of cow poo substrate and filled the holes with it. I buried the other 2 trays in them. I picked this fruit from one of those spots Friday. I tried to get a pic of it before I picked but the cap was too close to the ground. I couldn't get a decent shot.
And I don't know if the tray colonized the substrate or if it had another flush in it. I buried 2 of them after the 3rd flush and buried one today after a 4th flush.
