This will be my last new update thread. The next thread I start (unless it's a specific question) will just be a running cultivation thread.
First - I can't find my digital camera. The search continues. Here's to hoping.
So, the most imminent update is that I have one half pint Treasure Coast (TC) jar that I will DEC some time this week - probably Friday. My hope for this jar is a nice isolate, which brings me to the next update:
I'm enjoying some success with my first attempt at agar work! I thought it would grow a little faster - I've got a tiny bit of Goliath growth and a tiny bit of Mexicana (hereafter Jalisco) growth, but they seem sort of stalled out. My TC agar didn't take I guess.
I did my first set of no-pour transfers last Friday evening. This was from a very vigorous ATL#7 plate - by far my best grower so far. I put a little in an LC, a little in RGS qts, and then made 6 transfers to the no-pour plates. I was hoping to see a little growth in the LC today - no luck. In fact, all of my LCs suck. I'm pretty good at following directions - I'm not sure what's going wrong.
Everything seems to be growing, if slowly. I started Ps. cambo - Sandose on Friday evening, and reishi. I'll be birthing that PF cake, and then continuing to wait for some jars to finish to spawn to bulk.
