Hey everyone... it's been a few days without an Update and it's FRIDAY so let's get to IT. I don't know where to begin with this update so I'll just start on what is frustrating me and go from there. So, The PAN Cinct tub is doing great, but IMO and or Experience, everything adds up, but the fruits look like Cubes to me. It's still early and in the pinning stage, but the stems are thick. I know they can be(big) on Manure, but I woke up 2 days ago thinking of the Stealers Wheel song looping in my head... "Well I don't know why I came here tonight... I got the feelin' that something ain't right". Anyway, everything adds up, fast pinning, looks like a stone(been there for about 3 days or so, growing slow so it's not trich) forming against the tub, branchy twig like mycelium, which the cap spore prints look twig or thin branch like. I've never seen a Cube mycelium on the surface look like broken thin tree limbs. Baffled, maybe it's lack of experience with Cincts, or I'm just overly cautious from previous issues. I'll throw up some pics, beautiful color (red)caps or that cinnamon colored look, but if this is Cinct, there going to be BIG. Moving On, if it's not Cinct, it isn't... and I'll deal with that situation at a later time(hoping I'm wrong).
The other PAN trays(today is Day 7) and still nothing yet from them and they aren't colonizing the surface of the casing very well(poking out in spots), probably another FAIL from the Source(woke up a little bitter this morning... Pardon Me). Looks good on AGAR and in person, but with my track record lately... I'm not normally pessimistic at all, but IT is what it IS.
Now the APE tub is killing it, and I have confirmed it's APE on a small tub already. You learn the hard way trusting and blasting and lose a whole round of WBS(7jars). It's what I get for shooting OLD spores(blanks) and not going to AGAR to make sure. Cause and Effect "they" say. Anyway, damn Tahoe OG vape just interfering... Today is Day 14 from spawn and 9 days from when I dubbed it instead of tinfoil and (sewing)needle holes. This isn't a traditional shoebox style tub and the lid wouldn't of worked so Improvise and Adapt... always ready to switch gears. I just bought a 4 pack of tubs for future use, but that's next month after I'm finished with Summer travels and what have you. Small albino little snowmen popping up. Same routine, a light spritz every morning to replenish the days evap. Temps are nice, the low is 72ish and high around 78/79. I've been monitoring the tubs back and fourth, both hold right around 94-95h during the day and climb to around 96 at night. The smaller mini(ex mono Cinct tub) needs bigger holes so it rises to 97. I haven't been monitoring the Cubes(APE), other than surface conditions and an occasional tilt of the tub to make sure no excess water on the surface. I can say right off the bat, I should of went and bought tubs with snap lids, would of saved me the trouble of the DUB so early on and the PITA it can be to get back on the top of the other one. Anyway, I'm over here complaining just to complain, rough morning, LIFE(rollercoaster) happens, but I did get some other news that was Amazing(non related) so HEY... take the good with the bad sometimes.
The small Zip Tubs are colonized and have been since yesterday. I'm going to let them be for a day or two longer, one tub needs it in a few spots, the other is GTG. I'm in no rush, and I'll be putting these small ones in a shoebox for pinning, and probably unsnap the lid, and then flip the lid to finish. All for the sake of growing a different way... TOO much FUN(gi).
