Ooh nice, I'd love to see you beat the odds and succeed with these experimental jars.

Here's some better pics.

Pints:
This is the least colonized side of this particular jar. There are 3 points of myc working to cover this side.

Another less colonized side of a pint.

All jars are starting to show signs of rhizomorphic growth. And certain pieces of straw/sub (it is a mixture of stuff after all) seem to explode with growth after the myc found it.

Now for quarts:a243e688a986a0069a99d09aec485afc.jpg657af170469edbe79e00a1e7f26cf41d.jpg591d66bafd7cf42941f629e69e16ff02.jpgc79e8a9d4fbbee0d1b4365ba8579068d.jpgad58c4525257236334dff311d74a99d6.jpg

I haven't posted a pic of each jar. But before the end of this, we'll get a good look at each of them. I'll take a group pic when I spawn these.

So, update on the pint jars. Most of these jars have finished colonizing and need to consolidate. 2 jars are 95% done and closing. But a few are showing primordia, and a lot of 'em. I'm going to try and let them all finish before birthing.

This jar is basically done. Just some small surface bits left to colonize. Mostly where the sub is pressed on the glass.

This jar is one that still has a bit to colonize. There is a strip of uncolonized straw that runs through the jar decor/logo, but you can see the myc coming through from underneath, as well as all sides.

100% colonized, lots 'o knots.
dcdf399aec84193cc4eefa694147cfb4.jpg
This one has the most ground to cover, however like the second pic, you can see the myc tearing in on all sides. I'm excited to see what the myc does when it starts colonizing that maple seed!fc1f439a255b60403368c2bae3b4b06b.jpg
Basically 100%, just the surface bits pressed to the glass. And look at that super rhizo myc... in person it looks much cooler.

And lastly, another 99.9% jar. W/ tons of white myc.afef81c6bb78f8e1cff39a5ed0cd2a10.jpg

This jar was a slow starter, but it's been tearing it up trying to catch up! Some really cool looking growth.

Just taking some pics while checking my jars. Two really of note:
This first pic is the same jar as the second pic in my pint jar update. In a couple days it's almost completely colonized. 3cf095f96eb861ca4a871978b6f67914.jpg

More interesting than that is one of my quart jars.

I guess he feels like it's time!

I've been thinking about whether I should wait for all my jars to finish and just take whatever invitro fruits come along. Or if I should spawn the ones that are ready now, and the rest later. Or whether I should spawn them all now, even though some jars are not finished colonizing.

Any thoughts? Again, they will be outside. In a pot with some sweetgrass, or in our flower bed.

If they're pinning spawn them. They may finish, but chances are they won't colonize any more once you see a pin in the jar.

Upon the advice received in this thread, I decided to spawn my jars tonight.

Our front yard faces East, and we have some nice flowerbeds that are becoming more and more dense with vegetation. Near the back of one bed, we have pole-beans that are climbing several poles and create a nice patch of shade.

These are the beds that we layered with straw and composted manure last fall, which I then used to make these jars in April. So I'm hoping that the MS cultures have been "selected" to thrive on the sub they are now inhabiting.

Another plus is that it's been a slow steady misting rain all night, so all the soil was at perfect field capacity. What does worry me slightly, is that some patches of inoculated bedding will receive 1-2hrs of direct sunlight, if I can't come up with a solution that looks normal in a front yard.20f498a20c2c386da737fb76ceaddcee.jpg2545c857143bfb9b9387db0261203b6c.jpg

If there's room, and not to weird. Plant squash. Lots of shade but lots of room underneath. Basil is okay too If it would be more appropriate for the location. Takes a bit to get bushy, and you have to snip the flower heads.

Funny, we pulled a bunch of pumpkins earlier in the year. They were from some Halloween decorations. Unfortunately our HOA has a restriction on growing veggies in the front yard, and we don't really have the space. Basil is a good option though.

Luckily we're looking at rain all day tomorrow. Hopefully that helps the myc gain a good foothold.

I thought herbs might be better choice in a front yard. Not a lot of big bushy ones though.
