Anyone have advice on how to clean a shit ton of tiny aborts off a sub? Most ofn the tiny pins on the grated cake tub surface aborted, I wasn't surprised as it would've been the biggest flush ever I think lol, but I got all of em that ripened and am left with mushy-soft aborts, that I cannot grab without it basically turning to liquid in my fingers.

 

There are pins forming on the bottom again(4th flush, 2 top, 2 bottom), but I think it will contam from all the rotting pins. They are just firm enough to not rinse easily off, I am thinking of just wiping em off, rinsing it well, and flipping it.

Or something similar...its better to lose some sub when you scrape then leave on pieces that will rot. Anything you expose on the inside should whiten back up quickly and be a viable surface for pinning.

Use a clean knife lol.

Yeah that's what I did, scraped it, it was tedious, and I think it might contam because i left em on there so long, but we'll see. Thanks guys.

I am about to patch the casing on the 3 mini tubs(spawned 1/22) that are colonizing, with a very thin layer of sterile verm/coir, just where the myc has grown through the casing I put on((1/29), BUT, before I do, I wanted tomaken sure it wasn't a mistake to do so by asking you guys(if anyone is even following still), here's a pic of em right now, would it be a mistake to patch these?-

                                                                        IMG_20190203_010533.jpg IMG_20190203_010628.jpg

 

I added casings to help keep moisture at the sub surface since I have had issues with the thinner, and un-cased subs drying out, will it help?

 

There are no pins yet, so there should be no problem with patching the casings now, right? THX!

Nope. No problem. If it's colonized the casing I'd scrape it with a fork and then case it.

Okay thanks JKDeth, I already cased one, but I will scrape the others, I imagine it breaks up the established myc throughout the casing to stop it from further colonizing, that makes sense.

So even after scraping the partially colonized casings with a fork before I re-cased(patched it), and it's colonized again, do I leave it now or scrape the casing to break up the colonized parts again?

In these first two pics you can see some globs of white burma myc-IMG_20190206_195415.jpg IMG_20190206_195426.jpg

Here's another burma tub, very rhizoey myc-IMG_20190206_195349.jpg

The fourth & fifth pics are a B+ tub  with no liner, check out the side view, the myc is very rhizomorphic-IMG_20190206_195720.jpg IMG_20190206_195405.jpg The popcorn spawn jar were colonized from whole "rhizzy" agar plates that were isolated from other agar plates.

 

Here's flush# 2.5 from B+ tub# 1-IMG_20190206_195027.jpg And here's what B+ tub# 2, there were a few pins, some coming up from the sides,  the sub is pretty torn up and bruised still-IMG_20190206_195519.jpg

The last pic is the harvest of flush/tub# 1, dried & very "crackery", roughly ~20 grams, midget fruits-IMG_20190206_201845.jpg

Check oot the Burma pins-IMG_20190212_015223.jpg IMG_20190212_015311.jpg IMG_20190212_015124.jpg

 

The delayed casing allows pins to form at the original sub surface, and you can't really tell from the pics but they form all throughout the casing layer in 3 dimentions, kinda cool and there's tons of em.

Here's the burma pins today, nice pinset, unlike my B+s the stems have a brownish/yellowish white tint, possibly from me fanning it, but the ones I did not fan had a much smaller pinset, while the B+s have pure white stems.-IMG_20190213_194953.jpg

Browner stems can be genetic, or from drier conditions. The Malabars I grew always had very white stems. I think B+ as well, but its been at least 15 years since I grew them.

Most my B+ have pure white, but some that got dry did get the yellow/brown color, and I have been fanning these regularly, so maybe that's it. I don't remember the ms burma fruits from the original syringe being brown stemmed, but I only had a few of those, and these were isolated sectors, and two trays, both with a ton of pins all look the same, so maybe it's genetics. 

 

I'm really happy with the pinset, but they are smaller so far. I've read that burma can be small, I'll have to check about the stipe colors.

Well, here's the burma today. I think the color is probably genetic like JKDeth said, they're so golden colored, it made me question if I possibly mixed up the print these came from with my G.T, probably not, oh well, they're awesome looking regardless.-IMG_20190214_172332.jpg IMG_20190214_172549.jpg -The big one with the two attatched were growing out of the side from between the liner and sub, accidentally ripped out some root-looking myc. I got a bunch more to harvest now.

Here's most of the burma harvest-IMG_20190214_224741.jpg

Still gotta pick the rest-IMG_20190214_224415.jpg

 

It's weird, the two tubs of burmas started pinning at the same time but the second one is not near ready, check it out-IMG_20190214_230746.jpg

 

Here's a B+ with no liner. Pins are forming around the sides, very few are forming on top so far-IMG_20190214_230810.jpg

There pinning on the sides bc that's where there is enough moisture. Maybe mist or sprinkle some verm on top to promote pinning.

Or they may just be early bloomers. Time will tell.

This is one reason I like my sub on the wetter side with mini dub tubs. There is more moisture to maintain RH on top.

Yeah, these B+s have been pinning from the sides first but this one is taking longer, there are a few pins on top. I was misting & fanning that one, I'll try not to fan anymore though.
