Morning family, starting my morning off with 1.5 B+ (Be Positive) tea with a bit of lime juice to meditate about my dog Mako’s journey yesterday

I have my filter and I just placed an order for my blower. To this day I still blame it on a guy named “A”. I started that way as a matter of fact.

My blower and hepa filter are here. If I build it (flow hood) they will grow… (with low tam rates) Going with the 24x18 build. If anyone happens to need build plans for this size, I put one below. My Mako grow is coming along, and I need to make another round of Agar to make one or two more transfers . The Albino/leucistic (blue agar grouping) experiment is blowing my mind.

Getting my rye berries ready to go. I soaked them for 24 hours with gypsum. I also boiled them for 10 mins today to get that steam going for the right moisture content. Mako’s mesh bed got thoroughly cleaned and used as a strainer over the tub. I turned the cold water on to protect my plumbing and poured the grains evenly. I used a few weights I had around the house to counter balance the grains. My jars are prepped and ready to go. Off to the PC when it’s all said and done.

T4 transfers. I ran into Tammy on a few of the T3 transfers , but they were certainly headed towards rhizo.

I’m pretty OCD and my current transfer method drives me insane. I’d prefer a tissue biopsy punch like I would obtain as a surgical tech. I had a cheap gifted bit screwdriver with a broken handle and decided it would be perfect to test out my agar punch method. I cut the bottom portion of a hanger to push the agar sample out just far enough to grab with the forceps (tweezers). All of them can be sterilized and flamed . I used my first B+ spore cup to practice this whole process. I feel much better about this method.9d3c9d9f71959d6cc90653c1dd6f8dbf.jpg

Personally wouldn't have thought to use that for transfers, pretty creative! I have found using a pitter/de-core tool works well too for similar results but if you have one of these lying around then there's no need to procure the pitter/de-core lol

Leather punch is another commonly used tool as well.

I use a weird Indian sewing needle, essentially a smaller dental tool
