My hope is to get a couple clones, a print and a harvest before it gets too funky! Check out the double mush too, if I cloned it, would that trait carry over?

Well I cooked a pan sub bag after spawning so I let it sit for a bit, then I repasteurized and added about a quart of straight grain spawn. No wood, but it's very heavy on straw so maybe that will do the trick. We will see. I was just being lazy honestly, but straw is good for many wood lovers and horse manure always seems like a good bet so I went with it. We'll see.

I was attempting a derrumbe (Caerulescens) grow using stand PF jars with a little sawdust thrown in because I’d heard they liked it. Then two of the jars got contams, so I put the jars in my garage to separate them out but didn’t throw them away. Of course, life got in the way for weeks.
Then one day I walk by the table where I had left them and behold there was a fully fruited derrumbe and a pin in the jar. They had beaten back the contams and had fruits with no FAE in their jars, except the four little hole in the top. The weather in the garage was variable so sometimes the temps got down to the 30s and then back up the 50s or 60s during the day. Oh, and the only casing was the standard PF 1/2 inch of verm on top of the jar.
As an emergency tactic I quickly whipped up the same mix they had grown in and mixed it all with coir.
To make a long story... well a little less long...
The cap finished opening enough to get a usable spore print within 2 days.
With all the problems everyone’s had in getting caerulescens to fruit, this is incredible,

Hopefully, some of the more experienced growers will get some useful information about caerulescens from this accident.

JR, if you are worried about wood in your sub, I'd wonder if you could just add sawdust or tiny bits of bark to your casing?
I put my tub with contaminated subs outside and peeled all the micropore tape off the FAE holes. Mother Nature has already cleaned them up some, hopefully she'll decide to fruit them too.

I’m sort of in a down period of growing. It’s going to take me a bit to ramp back up. Right now I’m just playing with my Semperviva and my first full sized Pan tray.
