Thanks Hyph.
Only some deep threads remaining deep under the leaves.
something about the unique environment here
plus this patch is bordering the appropriate zone.
but i still think it can be done.

Going to give this another spawn run
and going to use something along the lines
of Freaky's kitchen bags to retain the humidity

maybe by Fall things will be looking good
if not to strengthen the patch for the following year

one can dream :meditate::eusa_pray:meditate:

Thanks :meditate: me too

Look what i found
the whole backyard is covered with leaves.
the leaf blowers are coming around and everyone is raking leaves.
im out there and i realized a stretch of Oak leaves
at least 30' long and 5' wide all contains traces of Myc :amazed:
Not sure if its Azure, Cyan or Ovoid, all have been planted nearby.

I think the main latent patch has travelled under the leaves.
Cant let these leaves get taken away
gonna have to sort through them and keep the decomposing ones
and the ones with the heavy mycelium strands.
any suggestions?

Gonna try to get all the leaves in one bed
gonna have to hand pick these
so it might take a little time :lol:

Bri this is truly a project...:) I love your persistance. I'd like to fruit some of these woodlovers in the fall as I have a new workspace to have projects set aside.

I know these haven't fruited yet, but which strain was able to colonize the fastest/most resilient? I'm in the south, definitely not the home of these suckers, but if I can keep a room cooled enough to colonize a big enough box of woodchips to transplant later than most (nov/dec) and I dug deep enough I could recreate the fruiting environment, just on a small scale. like a 3'deep 6'long 3'wide box dropped into the ground, not unlike a raised grow bed, which people use here all the time- I'm basically at the beach, the soil is garbage to say the least. Grass is futile here. I got time on my hands...:)

So if you were gonna pick the strongest one, which would you go with....

Thanks Funky
the Azures hands down
they were the ones that seemed to catch on to everything.
and they hung in there through a few summer months in the high 90s
good luck if you do :thumbup:
