Back in the latter part of spring I was gifted a (ms) syringe of RW spores from a friend I helped get started in cultivation. So, back on 5th of July I nocc'd up a 2lb bag of rye with 2.5 cc.

So far they look great but the only thing I'm noticing is that they are SO FREAKIN' SLOW to colonize. I am wondering if that's the way RW colonizes?

Here I am at Aug. 13th and this is what the RW bag is looking like. I'm not looking to break the grains apart to recolonize at this point yet. I tend to let all the outside get white and then break apart the grain. And as you can see in the pics we're not quite there.

I'm trying to learn of the lindeage of Rusty Whyte, so far I've been able to find it's a hybrid crossed and stabiliized by 'PastyWhyte'? Regardless I have been trying to get my RW spore syringe to germ to Liquid Culture but it keeps developing a bacterial problem. I'm very interested to see how this comes along for you  :biggrin:

My RW was perhaps slightly slower then a slow cube, but not PE slow.

Was it a rusty print?

It was a syringe, so I'm sure it started from a print.  :tongue: 
And yes it was from a RW print.
I have Huautla, Ecuador, Maza, and RW going at this time. The first three, mainly my Maza, are extremely aggressive.
I don't mind the RW moving at it's own pace, I just find it moving considerably slower than the other three variants. I can't seem to find in the original post made of them on how they colonize unless I overlooked it.
So I am just wondering if it is just a naturally slow colonizer like Chitwan, TC, PR which is more stubborn to fruit than slow to colonize from my experience, and a few others that my brain is seeming to forget at the moment.

That's a long time to colonize, but you only shot it with 2.5 cc's(NON LC) which isn't much.  Give that bag a nice Massage and watch her finish out FAST.  You have plenty of mycelium to spread around to speed things up.

Reading comprehensive ain't my strong point. Just know there could be some varying genetics out there. Rusty tried to only release a stable version. I believe mine was not a rusty print, so it's not even truly RW.

I have like 15 odd RW prints, so one is bound to actually be rusty.

You are correct.. it’s a cross between Columbian rust spore and AA+, crossed and stabilized by pastywhyte. Spores to LC will probably give bacteria most of the time.. you should knock up a couple of cakes and then clone. Pf cakes are very forgiving with bacteria

I'll definitely give that route a shot. I haven't made any BRF cakes since moving into my new home, maybe it's time. I'm at about a 75% success rate for LC inoculation. I'll even let them sit for a few days post-sterilization to make sure I wasn't failing to sterilize. I'm certain it's the spore solution but I will be happy to try to put them to BRF and see if they take. Better than keeping them around taking up space lol

Sorry.. I may have been confusing… I was saying use the spore solution to inoculate the cakes, not the LC. I can’t tell if you think I meant that or not haha

I understood what you meant Faht, I might have worded my response weird because I hadn't gotten my morning coffee in me yet lol. I appreciate the suggestion for spawning suspect spore solution to BRF, I didn't know that it was resistant to potential early bacterial issues and it has me looking forward to using up the suspect spore syringes I have taking up room in my storage container I use for spore syringes lol.

By 75% success rate for LC inoculation, I meant about 75% of the jars of LC I've inoculated from spore solution didn't develop a bacterial issue.

Quick update:
The RW's colonized fully finally and have been in the tub for two days.
Consolidation is taking place but not noticeable enough for a decent reference, but I threw it in to show progress.

Update:
Yay !!
We finally have lift off.
These mofo's colonize slow and seem to take forever to fruit as well. These are just the first few from the tub popping out. I'm thinking they will pick up in numbers but we'll see.
I've also noticed they like to blob as well.  :blink: Those will be a nice little addition.  :smile: 
As a side note they remind me of a bowling pin.  :laugh:

2 days later the first ones popping up are looking pretty good. The blob mutant has evolved a cap of sorts. These are an interesting variant but it won't be definite if these are true RustyWhytes until I get a nice print off of them. They do tend to grow a bit katty-whomp-us. Some fruits seem to start almost horizontally. They definitely grow slower than others but they are a beautiful specimen.
Updates will follow as they mature.

Here is some EQ's I got in the throws of their 1st flush.

Happy day in my abode.
Pulled the ones that were ready. I have some prints being laid and  I'm excited to see if these are true RustyWhytes. 
Either way, I'm happy as all can be just for the gift of knowing how to do this process.

This is the weight of what was pulled from the ones that were open capped and ready.

Overall so far, I am happy with what was gave to me in that tub, but there is still at least another 8 - 10 grams still yet till be ready which may come to me in another day or two. Either way. I am looking forward to seeing if I have true RustyWhytes.

I love seeing albinos/leucistic fruits.  Thanks for sharing.  :)

As expected the ones that were not ready a couple days ago are now ready. These grow out to a decent size fruit. There are fruits continuing to pop out as these older ones are finishing up which tells me it's not showing any sign of slowing down yet, so I'm kinda excited to see the fruits as the tub matures.
I was able to get 3 prints from the first ones although 2 are light and the third one was decent. From visual observation of the prints I have, these are Rusty Whytes. I will be making prints for my collection and others that may want this cool looking fungus.
