Pan Aussie RDU(failed)

here are two pics. one of the pan mycelia on popcorn spawn and one on wild bird seed spawn. these jars are setup to create liquid mycelia syringes for injection using agars mycelial culture tek at the shroomery. 3 days growth.
oh yeah this is the first try with popcorn spawn. if it weren't so expensive, it would be substituted for wbs. really likin it now. .99cents a pound at whole foods. 6$ for a 40lb bag of wbs. it would be 40$ for that amount pound for pound with wbs. but it is something going to be mixed in with the grains.
picked up some quinoa
some red wheat winter berries
just to change speed for a while. have to toy with everything you know!

spawn ratio is 2 quarts wbs to 1 turkey tin of the above mix.
these will be fruited in single tubs with saran wrap lids with holes poked in the saran wrap by needles. this will then be fanned by a hairdryer once daily. twice if necessary. lets see what happens.
jars were allowed to colonize a bit extra due to laziness. everything smelled extra panny. mmmmm...i miss that smell.
one bin is going to be fruited directly off dung.
the other fruited wtih a casing layer.
a few strawnet experiments will be tested soon.

still debating on whether to get an aquarium pump for air exchange. probably going to try it this way then if it fails or does decent upgrade two bins to have some more passive air exchange. lets see what happens. ive followed the oldskool mushmush.nl tek for pans in the past with dub tubs and it worked. so lets see if it will prevail with single tubs and saran wrap lids. no other way to figure it out but test it. and if it fails, tons of spawn can be produced for this strain. its currently being made into lc's in a similar fashion as fahtsters liquid culture syringe tek.
workman, can't wait, its growth rate is very aggressive and quite impressive compared to most other pan strains worked with. these include pan. cambodginiensis, pan cyans, pan trops or this could have been the florida cyan.
well this wbs is the crappy wild finch seed from pennington. steeped and cleaned. pced for one hour. the popcorn was done using a 1 hour boil and then pced for 1 hour. the mycelia is loving both. and it has been spawned. a quick observation was made through the tub in the dark but nothing looked substantial yet. will keep you updated. and prankster, you know that if these guys drop spores, im sending you like as many as possible with some other goodies!

Nice eatyu. Yeah those pans have such a unique smell. One night shortly after i spawned a few jars to sub, my wife comes home saying "Why the hell does my house smell like mushrooms?" lol There goes the no smell theory bout mushies, hehe pans anyway. Keep us updated. Foster
foster, i find the pans to smell kinda woody not exactly like p. mex but woody.not so shroomy like cubensis mycelia. my gf thinks it smells like wood or something like that. i love it!
