I decided to start a progress post for the past 2 months that I started my experiment. Which is growing some tubs. Heehee. It started with dry spore to agar. And then transfered twice more before innocing 11 jars..I thought only 3 were going to make it.. but all 11 are now in tubs I'm at the fruiting stage I guess. Cuz I have unplanned pins showing up.. probably because I don't care about contam and am opening them up lots. They have been colonizing about 10-12 days. So I've taken foil off and opened up holes.. there in a Martha tent I built. Whatwould you do if you were intent on fruiting iside Martha with huge holes in tubs for fae.. cuz that's where I'm at.. I need to post the photos now

Please give any urgent recommendation for my silly obsession n with the tent.. I just want no stagnant air in the bins when fruiting... For some reason. I really want to see how they do with open holes. No one does this. I must try.

Oh yeah! Wollongong cubensis
The tent is easy to dial in... I don't like it above 94 for the fans safety.. I like the bucket inside the tent to keep air moving.. I've heard it's super help full to have air...moving... So it's a jumpy 82-90+ when I set it 2 min on 10 min off....

I hope this entertains some people.. I've worked very hard.. and have thrown out 20 batches of rye to get my secret method right.. I've only come now to complain about my issues... And they are a fun one to deal with .. so I hope yous can respect that.

The only issue I see is with the bare wood. You need to cover it with plastic, or at the very least, paint it. An easy enough adjustment.. That is a huge contam magnet. You can take the lids off altogether when they are ready to fruit. They do not need to be covered in that environment. When I built mine, I hot glued the plastic to the inside so no wood was exposed. Great build otherwise!

Thanks you two. I worried about the wood harboring future molds.. or even present ones.. that worry left me after a while. But now it's back on the list.. I'm going to use paint with mildew control. Thanks for encouragement.. and for the fact that I can just take the lids off..awesome.. I'll be back!!

Well might as well keep posting..
Here's where I'm at.. they don't seem to want to grow very high?.. there stubbing and capping out at like 2 inches it seems??

I'm still happy.. I love the art the mycelium makes on the caps. how it still looks alive on the cap. Anyways. Is there any wonder or reason why there not very tall with small caps?
