Happy Birthday to the Redboy multispore cakes.  They dunked overnight, and today they'll go into fruiting conditions.

I think my old eye's see rhizomes........this should be cool.....

 

Very nice!

 

Someone actually grows cakes......I hope those explode!

 

Although a herd of colonized spawn pucks like that could create quite the bed....... :biggrin:

17 jars? Dang!!! And they look awesome!

Can't wait to see the results.
GROW GROW GROW.

Thanks for the interest.  I'm going to grow them as cakes, but I'm going to try shoebox-style containers in 2.5 gallon ziplocks.  I'm not breaking the cakes up or anything.

 

Here they are on a bed of field-capacity vermiculite:

And then I put more verm on and around them.  About a 1/4" to 1/2" on the tops.  I gave the surface a good spray with water as well as the undersides of the lids and closed them up so they'll get comfy and grow through some of the verm.

 

Easy peasy, I hope.  This will be my first time growing in ziplocks, and I hope they're a simpler alternative to tubs with holes and fans on timers, etc.  I'm just trying to keep things small and simple.

Should work well! Don’t be stingy with the holes if you’re using a syringe needle.

Nice. At the moment I'm in the same boat. Got one zip lock in a box hiding behind my saxaphone. And one colonizing...but I got about a dozen grain jars and some whole grain rice jars started so I'm about to be in too deep again....

I started working on my secret lair last week so someday I can grow big to my hearts content. But small n simple is really all I need.

It's just too easy to get carried away with this stuff.

A dozen grain jars?  Are they quarts?  That will go a long way!

 

It's easy to slip into wanting to go bigger, especially because it's really not hard to do.  For me, I'm finally learning to go smaller, although I definitely didn't mean to end up with 17 Redboy cakes at the multispore stage.  It just kind of happened.  :biggrin:

Dude.....

Yeah. I started too many again.

Spawned 2 quarts this week. 10 qt grain colonizing. 10 jars of whole grain brown rice mostly colonized. And now 12 mini grain jars for testers.

And I also didn't mean to....it just kinda happened.

Atleast with those tamps you can forget about the jars for a few months and have some stones!

Welp, I lost some of the Redboy cakes, I think because I'm still learning how to use the shoeboxes with the big ziplock bags as fruiting chambers.  About 8 of them are still going strong though, and all are showing primordia. 

 

I got myself a digital microscope, so here are some pictures of some of the primordia and mycelium up close and personal:

That sucks mang... it’s also “that time of year” but just think like it’s a shotgun fruiting chamber with smaller holes.. load em up.

Oh no....good luck with the rest of them.

I'm in the process of getting all my jars opened and started and suddenly wondering where I'm gonna put all of them.

My first Ziploc is still just chillin. It's been 9 days. Starting to twiddle my thumbs and question it's viability. But it's also the KSSS that didn't pop out of the cakes until after I had given up on it. So I guess I will keep waiting and wondering if the Faht Sack will produce.

That microscope looks like it's pretty cool. Nice that they make them digital now. Does it save to SD cards and then transfer to computer?

It has a card but I can just plug in a USB too.  It's really just a decent-quality toy but it will give me a cool perspective on things I didn't have before.  Can't wait to use it on some fruits!

Those "decent toys" are some of the best stuff. I got a kids discovery telescope that gets way more use than the big expensive one.

As long as it captures your interest it's good as gold.

Sidestreet- Do you have any pics of the fruits? I am currently fruiting some PE myself and the mutant blobs I have are pretty serious, I have some really nice looking fruits as well. Im going to attempt to clone the one giant fruit I have growing. Ill post some pics later of what I have growing.

The first pins on the Redboy cakes just appeared today!  I'll get some pictures in the next day or two.

 

The first batch of PE cakes is dunking overnight tonight.  The cakes from the LC I marked "A" definitely colonized faster than those from "B" so my clone/s will most likely come from that batch.

Redboy multispore cakes are moving right along.  I'm eyeballing a couple of cloning candidates...

And then here are some extreme closeups of pins and primordia for your viewing pleasure:

Hard to believe that last post was only two days ago, because the Redboy multispore exploded and today is harvest day:

 

DSCN1210.jpg

 

 

The two cakes I saved from the bag that got cobweb finished up very nicely too:

 

Cake 1:

 

DSCN1215.jpg

 

 

Cake 2:

 

DSCN1217.jpg   DSCN1218.jpg

 

 

The whole group:

 

DSCN1222.jpg

 

 

 

I took clones from two fruits.  This Redboy does really well even multispore.  Like I said before, the person I got it from says they worked with it for a number of years.  Hopefully the clones do well.  The one I took was from a cluster that pinned before anything else and grew bigger than anything else.  The other one looked stubby, chubby, and unique.  The only thing is that the stems were fairly hollow.

 

 

Now for the extreme closeups:

 

Unfortunately, I think trich developed in the bag.  I'm not sure because it doesn't quite look like other trich I've seen.  Still thinking it's contamination.  Here's what I saw:

 

PICA0000.jpg

 

 

Gills:

 

PICA0001.jpg   PICA0005.jpg   PICA0003.jpg   PICA0002.jpg

 

 

A piece of gill I cut out and laid flat:

 

PICA0006.jpg

 

 

Partial veil where it connects to a stem:

 

PICA0007.jpg

 

 

Stem:

A little pin:

The top of a cap, right near the middle:
