Once again I couldn't locate the old thread. After shopping I stopped by buddies to snap a shot or two of the Mexi A project in Buenas Noches. The jars have darkening larger stones now and seem to be producing new ones as seen by the white blobs. The more the merrier we will trace flourescent lines on the walls in our winds. Also some shots of the progress of the spawn run through the casings. I think I will advise him to case with a very thin layer of plain verm and fruit as normal in a tub with lid cracked and wax paper over till pins form.

damn that does look good. after you pick out the sclerotia, how do you plan on keeping any uneaten scl fresh? put it back in a jar and vac seal it? being as they say fresh is much more potent than dried out.

LOL...too lazy to remove and fearful of contams? He used hips layer of PO grade tyvek under the lid, polyfil in hole, tyvek over the lid method and he hopes contams will be less apt to creep under the foil. I know it's like catching minnows with a landing net for grouper but each layer of defense seems prudent.

hip doesn't use PO grade tyvek any more,

The foil will hurt you. It's going to keep your filter as wet as the contents inside the jar. A wet filter will allow contaminants to colonize through it. If you take the foil off, the filter will be dry and able to do its job.

I figured they would be as they started forming about 3 months ago so maybe he will share 10-20 grams fresh with me for a cyber chatroom trip tomorrow night. Gonna try to upload his casing pix again. Nope here is the error:Upload Errors

I informed my friend that but remember I had read posts indicating 90 days up to 6 months of "growth" enhanced the stones some. Plus, he is noting an increase of mycellial growth near some of the stones lately. I have included 2 pix of the same jar of his showing a nice sized mature stone and the other side with smaller still "growing sclerotia". Sorry the camera sucks on close ups but I balanced it with flash on the mature stone, and without flash to really show the growth on the smaller less developed stones with fresh white myc feeding the areas. Any advice is welcome and I will pass it along to him. Some pics of the casings are coming soon when there is something foto worthy, as it's just a couple of pans cased in verm at this point at 90 percent 2 days ago, which in another couple of days he will birth.

Here are the cases about 3 days after my friend birthed em. The myc is filling in the gaps of the verm case layer nicely so keep your fingers crossed folks.

Good luck. Good fruiting strains are few and far between. I hope you have one. If so, print all the caps.
