Hey everyone, needed a new thread to showcase my latest efforts which are soon to fruit. Just put into proper conditions, tonight.

After this thread has run its course, I will probably just start a thread where the body of my projects can be found. Thanks for reading!


This is my South African Transkei shoebox. Trying something new, idk if I will get enough FAE but will be monitoring closely. I used a heated extendable painters razor utility blade. One of the super cheap things that can slide more razor out when needed or when it breaks/ gets dull.. I made crosses and cut out two quadrants or one quadrant of a diamond in each hole in order to have room to make them bigger if I like. Also it’s not really easy to cut a hole with one of these and I don’t have a drill. I suspect I will need to put a couple bigger holes above the smaller ones just above the substrate. What do you think? It is Four quarts hpoo pasteurized on stove top water, and two quarts popcorn grain spawn. It colonized for a little longer than two weeks I wanted it to get as much nutes as possible. I am using press n seal for a lid atm with skits cut then covered with micropore tape.. I’ve never seen anyone do this before. I imagine should work out just fine. 89ba7a2045e11400cf48eee342853ba7.jpgd6b427492c2ba0e8a6e6af381da9efa6.jpgdee893b034d9af890230967e8670c66a.jpg


This is a grow bag of Cambodian Gold. Supposedly a F1 hybrid of Cambodian & Golden Teacher.. no clue what to expect really.. I tried laying the bag on it’s side because I figure using the hpoo it could push out a lot of boomers so the more surface area the more it can utilize and work it out. Never tried this before, will just cut it open when I run outta room 4443939cc09417de389c2b2ec2078d4d.jpge0eea00da52663409f8c729b97260720.jpg


Looking forward to any and all criticisms. Trying to learn a trade here ;)

Looks good to me, that tub has a lot of airholes. and that fan is enough to keep the air flowing. Withing you the best in your grow! should be getting pins seriously soon

I have never used micropore for FAE before and the holes are pretty small but I think a small little fan in my closet will be enough! Atleast I sure hope so. There is just one layer on the holes I might opt to make them a tad larger! Thanks for stopping by moonless! This is my first project with manure. I have five more strains going to manure in about a week! So stay tuned! I’ll be taking prints and all that good stuff as well. Just need to pay for marketplace!

So are those like, supposed to be a cross between Cambos and Golden Teachers? I have heard about supposed "hybrid crosses" of cube strains, actually from people who know about the fact that it's not very common or easy to create an actual hybrid between cube strains. They were skeptical but intrigued, as I am.

 

I had heard that there was a bigger vendor selling them, I don't remember the name. I would assume that is just a cube strain and the name is a marketing thing, but who the hell knows(maybe someone here?) if some vendor company actually got in a lab and got 2 individual spores from each sub-strain together, and did it enough times to find 2 that were genetically compatible, and then grew out batches to find ones that even fruited at all, then found the phenotype that had the unique traits from both Cambos and Goldens, then repeated the process identically over and over until the spores were producing reliably similar and stable results in the fruits with those same traits. Then you'd have that true hybrid.

 

Haha, I may have added or skipped a few steps here and there, I am not an expert, that is just a combination of things I know are true cuz I've read it from experts, and things I made a semi-educated guess on.

 

BTW, I'd be interested in knowing what vendor you got those spores from, but DON'T SAY IT IN THIS THREAD, just in case you didn't know about the vendor thread and only naming vendors there rule. Sorry I took a few month break from Topia so I don't know a bunch of the newer members so well yet.

Cam gold still looking knotty and nice ;) no signs of pins and SAT isn’t knitting yet I assume it will tomorrow. I kept the surface very wet by keeping the plastic of the black garbage bag taught against all surfaces mostly. I’m expecting them to explode with growth any time now! I just really want to see with my own eyes the difference between manure and other substrates. Everyone says it blows all else out of the water

I’m not sure, I thought this was the cam gold but I’m beginning to think I it’s SAT... what do you guys think? I hope Cue shows up. 48b1601b3b60f23432a1d0f8d78d0929.jpg8ca0c6bf93ebb9890116104070ebb819.jpgd3eb76fdd202c1872baad228a0b2c059.jpg69997e6b627bf860edc61e38e2842a13.jpg6c60e3812afcc96923edab721291dbb4.jpg look at all the rhizo growth on the bag there are tons of pins forming on the bag 281868e59fba45d5700d64f569036255.jpg04b000f5791b5dfe3a6d8d8e493fcbed.jpg215c8e43e2fe4f887445f4bbcd47f2a4.jpg64e0cdb9da6f65ba49d936dedcbfc347.jpg

I just feel like it doesn’t look like golden teacher or cambodians

Dark, this was an MS grow out of a supposed F1 Hybrid correct?

 

If so there could be many variations of a strain genetically. Also hybrids can revert back to one of the "parent" strains used. 

I've seen this happen in many plants. But have never dealt with a hybrid of any kind of mushroom.

 

 

Peace and good vibes

 

 

 

ETA: You have some very nice growth going on, I look forward to your results

Well,. Thing is I had a mishap,... I had inoculated two SAT jars and one cam gold. I had failed to label them so about a week I noticed Two of them were identical in growth and characteristics in mycelium,. Same growth speed and just looked really similar.. so I deduced they were the cam gold and the very different rhizo growth jar is most likely the one cam gold because Cambodian and golden teacher are known to be quite rhizo and agressive. I then put the two similar jars together but just Incase I was wrong I made sure not to mix the jars I spread one to the left side and one to the right,. Once the supposed SAT pins I guess we will know if I was correct in my assumptions, but you know what they say making assumptions makes an ass of you. Lol

Edit: the two jars that were identical in growth appearance and speed were SAT I thought and the individual rhizo I believed to be cam gold

I'm guessing you learned  lesson about labeling and knowing what is what lol

 

We've all don it once, at least.

 

 

Not sure if I've ever grown Cambodian Gold or not, but have grown Golden Teacher a lot. Never would call it aggressive really, one of the slower Cubes to colonize in my experience. 

 

I am looking forward to your grow results though

 

Peace

Yes I learned my lesson big time! Even though I know better I’m worried the bigger tub is mixed strains and won’t fruit but I know theoretically it should fruit just fine.. the bag grow to me personally, the actual fruit bodies resemble SAT in appearance. I hope that some people that have grown it can confirm or deny my hunch. Will update pics of the tub as soon as it pins

I'm sure the tub will fruit, even if 2 different strains. I'd believe one would take over, but they may grow in symbiosis.

That is very rare in the mycological world though. As far as I know, the Morel is the only species of fungi that grows in symbiosis with another mycelial mat of fungi and becomes one. And that is only with another Morel species. 

 

Peace my friend
