Nice work. Your gonna love the speed of colonization with agar on grains, and you can do different stuff with live cultures like 'slurry' syringes/liquid inoculent/myc-water.
Get sub-strains isolated, test em, or make clones, and then make culture slants with a piece of wood in them to keep the best producing sub-strains for long term.
If you just leave an agar dish for months, eventually all there will be left in the dish is myc, all the agar/nutrients get used up. Wood soaks up nutes and the myc partially colonizes it, even tho cubes are not a wood lover, it can break it down just enough to colonize the wood. It's like slow-released nutes, so it takes longer for the myc to use the nutes up.
I need to get on the ball and get back into the agar swing. I have a couple plates that need to be transferred cuz the agar is getting thin. Also any color(food color) you add to agar gets eaten up by the myc.
