The trays and grain pint I cased awhile back are looking good-- there's healthy mycelium now collecting in the grooves, gaps, and pockets between the casing material.

I have had them closed in their containers since the casing, but today I opened them up, gave them each a light misting, and put the lids back on.

 

I then placed the entire main container into the wet FC, as the humidity in there stays ~90%. I figure that it might be better to stabilize the humidity in the upper range with moist airflow instead of opening them up now and exposing them to the air. I want to see if the moisture in the trays stays good for a few days this way, or if it is still drying out. I'll adjust accordingly.

 

Here's a pic of the meal prep containers after I sprayed-- the mist reduced the fuzziness of the mycelium a little-- but if you look close you can see it there. I like the way it is going so far with these.

I will be casing the two mycobags probably within a week or so-- once I harvest the 4th little flush from my semperviva bag that's in the FC I want to use for these.

 

Before I case them I will perform a long submersion soak as I did with the trays and grain pint.

Looking great coAsTaL, keep it up! I think I'm a few weeks away from casing still but moving along nicely!

Right on man-- I know everyone says these are nearly impossible to fruit indoors, so I'm very curious about how this will all play out.

So far so good.

Aucklandiae sub, right before casing, it'll go into the FC in 7 days.

The first pic is the sub shown above 9 days after being in the photo. It looks fairly similar, maybe just filled in a little more. A second sub, which is about a week behind, was cased normally and allowed to sit for 7 days. Then I added a thin layer of Optisorb (granular diatomaceous earth) and a light sprinkle of pea gravel. In the pic, you can see mycelium growing through the Optisorb. Now, if only I could get them to fruit....and print.

I'm not sure why the first and last photo swapped places?
First photo, close up of myc with extra casing.
Last photo, sub #1 after being in FC 9 days.

A week later, the mycelium is growing thicker and in more spots on the diatomaceous earth and covered a few pebbles too.

The tub above has been moved outside and is probably on its way to the compost heap. I noticed a dot of green and wanted to catch it before it spread...... Unfortunately, there was much more! So, down to one tub, if I loose it, I'll probably hold off 'til Fall to restart these.

Fingers crossed for the last Auc tub and some Zaps too. :)

That’s too bad about the contamination Yoshi, let’s hope that last tub makes it all the way! How long do you expect that it should take to get pins after moving into fruiting?

Thanks El Pirana. I'm hoping within a 2 month window but that is just a guess. It can't be any slower than Semperviva. :)

Back at it with Aucklandiae, this time trying not to love it to death. The sub is 8 days from spawning to CVG + some fuel pellets and Wpoo. I have some more on agar that are about ready for grains.

1/4 pint of oat/rye going to a pint of grain mix. Hopefully I can eventually get this one to fruit and make some spores.
