Are these two in the same chamber, if so, those Poplars look great so probably not an Air issue.  Your tent pole is also disconnected in the first pic.  Those yellows look beautiful, I'm looking to do some Pinks later this year.  My Martha is a multipurpose tent, not specific to any species and does well.  I want to do a full KING run(push even more AIR), but I'm just playing around at this point... nothin' serious.  Those Piopinno's are HUGE man, Congrats well done(and the

Citrinopileatus looks fine... keep doin' watcha' doin)

Yes I know the tent pole is not connected, the tent's on uneven ground and every time I fix them they work themselves loose whenever the wind blows...

Yes the popinos were in the same chamber, and possibly getting too big, they had started to crack, so I just had to pick them and eat them... They were lovely...

For those that do lions mane on rice, do you use vermiculite as well, a-la PF Tek? (I was going to do it to use the mycellium rather than the fruits)

I use whole brown rice and pearled barley, no vermiculite and they do very well for months. Often, you'll also have fruits when you are harvesting the mycelium.

Who here uses peptone in their LCs, what are the benefits, and how much do you use?

I'm thinking of getting some...

Good Idea, you can open it outside if you want to try and confirm(what it is), but YEAH I'd just toss it.

I didn't want to confirm what it was, I'm assuming aspergillus of some sort. I can confirm it wasn't lion's mane.

I've seen Aspergillus flavus(the worst I've seen personally, Trich is the most common IME) from a contaminated syringe a few years back.  IT was the gold flakes looking variety.  I was careful disposing of that, don't need my squirrels grabbing OATS(wait... I was using WBS at the time) that are BAD.

Has anyone tried sorghum as a grain for LM?

Sorghum is fairly uniform in size, and pretty spherical. I found my usual hydration method (boil water, remove heat and soak grain) had to be 'retuned' back from 25 minutes to 18. They are then 'al dente'.

They do darken a bit in the PC (what doesn't?) but you can fit (slightly) more weight in to a given volume compared to wheat. I'm not sure about surface area per unit volume. Maybe a bit more.

I almost went the Sorghum route when I was switching from WBS, but it's more expensive than Oats and I was making WAY too many blocks at the time for wasteful WBS.  The wild life miss my Sunflower Seeds after cleaning the Bird Seed.  All good, I grew some BIG Sunflowers in the Veggie Garden for Aesthetic purposes(Mainly and the thrill of growing a BIG Head), and to give back to my Squirrels.
