Here's some more pics....

Does this fuzziness mean there is too much moisture/not enough FAE?

I am definitely better versed with botanicals and extract, so my myco skills can always use improvement and my eyes aren't as good at reading mushie stuff as many of you.

So let me know how the progress looks.
Note a couple big lumps of fuzz.
May just be a piece of popcorn near the surface or do we have trouble brewing?

Need to get some vermiculite as I normally add it and had to go without this run

I have some more pics, along with questions, as usual.

All 3 tubs seem to be doing well, even seeing pins already, despite a few incompletely colonized pieces.

20190723_112732.jpg 20190723_112728.jpg 20190723_112721.jpg 20190723_112622.jpg


Now, here's where I have questions.
My gifted syringe was supposed to be a master syringe, though I must not have shaken it well enough as the jars colonized slowish.
I did notice that the remainder I had saved for LCs etc was very dark.

Here's the pics of the 2 LCs I 'nocced up.
Is this just honey/karo that carmelized into junk?
Or do I have a couple of extremely well inoculated LC jars.
Any thoughts folks?

Those look like they have caramelized on you. I always wait for the water to come to a full rolling boil before I put my LC's in the pc and put the lid on. Once the steam starts coming out I put the pressure regulator on 15 psi and time it 10 minutes and shut off the flame. Once it has cooled enough to unlock, I remove them, which usually gives it the perfect amount of time. I stopped using honey and karo a long time ago. If you do use it, cut the karo or honey in half from the standard recipes. I hope you didnt use the entire syringe in those and you have some left if those don't work out for you.

I left a good little bit if thr syringe left, and as a master syringe it is full of spores.
I didn't get most of them shaken off the side of the syringe as I was 'noccing up my jars.
So the remaining little bit has lots of spores in there (may make a full syringe our of it if I can avoid contaminating it.
Nonetheless, should be plenty for several mkre changes at LCs and ive already done a G2G on the original project so there's thatand hopefully eventual prints.
So I will get it right, practice makes perfect.

Here's a couple pics of what is left of the syringe.
Not a lot but dark as hell.
May have to make a more diluted syringe, not sure yet but definitely don't want to blow it

Glad the tubs and G2G jars are still going strong.
Keep optimistic.

You only need a drop of that syringe. Nice!

I know we've all seen cubies form and grow but I haven't done a grow for a year or 2.
And the apt we moved into seems to be mold free (visibly
though there's always spores floating around)

The tubs are all progressing nicely and the G2G seems to be taking off well.


Having a good run would go a long way to getting my grow skills back up

Some skinny mushrooms with some all white caps, others normal, are forming.

Very exciting after a year or so hiatus

Shadow! nice to see ya! Very nicely done bro, Glad you are back into the flow of it. Congrats on the successful flush.  

 

Might just be the variety, but I seem to remember something about excess CO2 playing a part in longer thinner stems at times. Been a bit for me as well. But maybe a lil more fae since they are in kinda deep tubs. Couldn't hurt, might even help a bit. :)

Be sure to print those bad boy white caps!!! 

 

I would love to make you a trade for er.. uh.... something lol  for one of those. :)

 

It's great seeing so many old familiar names checking in at least every so often. I certainly do miss the old days here.

Have some initial pickings, leaving some larger ones to get that cap open for a good print.

I did manage to take an initial print and will be trying for many prints and a working LC for sharing and for restarts in case of G2G failures
