The thread is probably dead, but has became more of a log where I can both share my results, and use for me to keep track of when I do things. And of course any advice given, is always GREATLY appreciated.
Just posting an update. I thought the babies stalled, but also thought, perhaps I have fooled myself. So, I circled the growth in the jars last night with my wifes eye liner (I got yelled at lol worth it). The myc has grown outside the lines in some places, just in 24 hours so now I know they havent stalled, and I can leave them alone for another week.
This is possibly something people know already? Not sure but im gonna say it anyway. I know people have had trouble using the 9er tek as far as shaking jars. However I have found if you can manage to break off just one colonized grain, by tapping the jar, you can move it wherever and start a new innoculation point and still get things moving around. I found what made this possible was I did not pack down the rice, only tapped the jar on my hand. The rice is loose as a goose up at the top of the cake.
I started more agar dishes. This time condensation was not a problem (sorry peacefrog, if you're out there. Dumb dumb here didn't read your prep right. Works like a charm when I actually pay some attention). I see obvious pin point growth, but who knows what the hell that is. I will post pictures when i find out what it is exactly.
The last picture is of the new innoc point I started last night, with a single grain of colonized rice that I managed to move to the other side of the jar. (My frog Tina was watching me photograph so i let her say hello)
