Some of you may remember the three sets of jars I did that was posted in the sonication thread.
Well I finally got around to fruiting them and here's a few pics.
They have been in the tub about ten days. I have been using auto air exchange and manually misting.
The big winner seems to be the Nepal Chitwan from vendor syringe, but all the cakes have pins or knubs. I will update...

Cool Trout, keep us posted man :) You should go into your profile and change your Location, so that it doesn't drag the color across the screen like that :)

nice to know that sonication did not impact fruiting negatively.

those "NUBS" are weird. i wonder what caused them.
think it was genetics?, or environmental influences?
other than that they look very nice , white and healthy

Is there a real answer on those "nubs"? Capless mushrooms? Mutations? Can't believe it's sclerotia. Is it genetic or environmental? I've had them happen on some stuff and am curious. Nice grow btw.

Top row is B+, middle row is N. Chitwan, bottom row is Tex.
I'm hoping those nubs will develope caps.

Here they are today...those nubs see to be growing under the cakes. Maybe I need more light.
The Texans seem to be the slowest.

Today's update shows some progress. Note the deformed cap on the mushie in the upper left corner.
Still baffled by the tardiness of the Texans (bottom row). They are usually quite fast.
I'm still tweaking the auto air exchange system as far as time periods go. Any advice would be appreciated. ;)

Hey trout, you should try doing regular perlite tubs(maybe you'll like it better), but as far as the air exchange ? , i would put a piece of plastic or something over the intake(inside the tubs) to keep the moisture in, and when your auto system starts, the plastic would blow away from the hole allowing the fresh air in and then fall back down to cover the hole when the fan turns off(seems like it would work nice in thoery).....id set up air exchanges for 3-5 times a day

do you have a hydrometer in the tubs.....is the RH 100 percent.......anything less can be tough on the cakes......i see a little blueing on the cakes themselves which could be due to mishandling, or miscleaning the cakes, or lack of moisture....... I mention this because in some of the pics, moisture is not readily recognized on the walls of your tub.....also id try to keep the shrooms of the walls, especially if they covered with moisture(the moisture can cause aborts or deformities IME)

the deformed caps are probably do to contact with moisture on the sides of the tubs...at least thats what looks to be the culprit from my observations.....

for texas cakes, i recommend letting them pin like crazy invitro(give em light at 70 percent colonized) and then birth them, but your texas look healthy and will probably do you nicely.......you will also notice the huge size difference between the texas off cakes and the ones off your straw/dung......the cakes should produce many small mushrooms IME.....

ive never used the hydroton for cakes myself so i dont know how effective it is, i just know it perlite is more mess but more effective moisture retainer

i wouldn't give it too much thought,
they are well within the 'normal' range for cubies,
genetic variations ya know ?

Some of the B+ cakes had to be picked tonight so here's a few pics.
Everybody loves pics!
In the fourth pic you can see the little green guy. Unusual colouring of the cap.
I also think python is on track that the air exchange is drying things out quickly in spite of misting the tub walls 3 - 5 times day.
I am also quite happy about the fruit's size and quality. :)
