Well ya'll... Vacation time is Over and SAD times... wish I was ready for a "Permanent Vacation" EVERY day... But that JUST isn't the Case at this juncture of my life. Back to reality, so we will start with the bad, I scrapped the Pan trays, had two medium trays of Wild Coast and one was disgusting with trich, and the other looked ok, but I decided I'm done with that culture. Scrapped all LC's, I'll be starting fresh from spores, the cultures of WC and Estero are Slow AF to grow, and they are problematic, so CYA. I need to do an agar plate run soon anyway, hopefully I can find a fast sliver of Pan mycelium eventually, probably the toughest part of Pans, I need a fast culture then a Solid clone. I'll get there, No worries and NO hurry... I have a couple grammy's of Wild Coast, and plenty of the Peace River, but No bueno on the Estero. Enough of the Debbie downer nonsense, I'm just crying a little bit (not really, sucks to lose anything in life, but I do this on the cheap, it's not a money thing at all), used to getting what I want out of projects, and these are Humbling NO doubt about it. I'll be back COPES!
The Ps Cyan jar of Oats is just about finished, not much difference time wise with Oats Vs Rye. The Rye took just over a month, and the Oats is just over 3 weeks currently. Looking to be about the same time frame wise.
The Gandalf tub is 5 days complete starting on Day 6 and doing well, the surface is starting to fill in and a few spots on the bottom need to colonize, but healthy, this tray is Coco only through and through. I've always wanted to run Coir without the Verm, figured NO better time than the present. Pictures is through packing tape, but you can see healthy white mycelium FUR Sure.
The AA+ is 7 days complete and Day 8 here we go. The surface is looking amazing and healthy, and I lifted the lid real quick to take a snapshot. I'm not worried about contamination, it's colonized plenty, I don't like to disturb the environment too much during colonization/ close to pin formation.
The Mexicana A tray of cased Rye didn't like me putting a bag over the tray and poking holes everywhere (still not enough), most of the fruits aborted, so I plucked them, and it's back in the Martha with two LM bags.
Oh, I don't think I mentioned dropping an Old Agar plate (6.22.21) of APE to Milo, starting to jump off nicely, about 6 days in and gave the jar a mild tumble/shake. It's a T2, I still have a bit of LC as well, but I need some backup Swabbies (My favorite Cube).
I also made up some Pint Manure Cakes with 2 PE6(LC needs to be used) and a freebie Leuci Burma I've had for a while. I have no expectations with these since I'm not a cake grower, just something I randomly threw together on the fly. I have made some all-in-one zip container manure "cakes", and these are manure/verm/rice bran. Time will Tell.
I also have one last Tamp sclerotia jar going, just over 4 months in, but I'm Stone COLD Crazy and have plenty of these, they taste like(fresh) a nut for a moment, then the crazy zesty mushroom flavor hits, it's not the greatest (sour pucker style), but the flavor goes away pretty quickly. Anything beats eating dry fruits (wouldn't attempt dry stones), no fun picking particles out of your teeth. Ya'll Take Care.
