I am back again in Topia. Sadly my first grow attempted failed that was back in 2018 (thread is here somewhere).
I had the option of petri dishes to get , this time at the supplier i used before. Tripple vented ones, the upside would be more air exchange , however that could be an issue with contamination or drying out of the agar?
What is the best? Anyone did a test of both?
I will be growing cubensis this time, so soon a thread will made to follow my grow. I am sourcing supplies.
Pressure cookers are they a must? good sales on some atm, still a few $$, but some are like 499 down to 180$
A crockpot would not suit? have a really old but reliable Monier.
Spore prints i did are wild ones, not the best example , but this summer wettest for awhile has been rather a disappointment with few shrooms and lack of cubes, but i managed to get some on a journey with my brother. not the best examples but i got spore prints , expect some isolating on agar
