Thanks for the new TEK title LocoH that is funny! :lol: and it will make it easier for me to find later.
No Problem. Just seemed perfect to me. This is definitely something I'm going to try to improvise/improve to suit my needs and for experimentations sake.

hats a great idea hip.. I actually already did that but only with a 1/2 pint... I think it's in that link actually.. you should check it out.. it works. heres that post.. quart would work for sure.
hey i know a good idea when i steal it...

also making PF falbino jars today.. so as soon as I get a nice sporelating fruit body (probably non-albino first) I'm going to clone it and make a fahtsack for those so I can give that jar back to ya, TCO... that way you can spread as many spores around as you want and KNOW they are good to go. ;) that is if this works out the way I think it's going to... so nothing guaranteed, but I have some pretty high hopes. :thumbup:

everything is going great. :) no contams, good moisture in container, nice even growth..
What you are looking at: I put a "donut" casing on the top of this that is just plain verm... theres no casing mix in the center so that I could inoc. there and the casing doesn't go completely to the edge so that I could inoc. all along the edge as well.. you can see by the faint casing colonization how far the colonization is underneath it on the actual cake substrate.. i'd say there is about 40% left to colonize... probably something like 4 days.. Then I'll lower the temp and introduce some new air everyday and hopefully it'll start pinning up real nice. :teeth:
Going to be doing just the cap flooding on these PE's this time. :thumbup:
it's pretty funny.. at the same time that I have a thread about casing as late as you can, this thread has a casing in it that is applied before it's even inoculated. LOL talk about dancing on the extremes.

so, I got a new camera (Kodak easyshare Z1275, 12 mega pixels :)) today and wanted to check it out... this is the only thing I have up and going right now so I thought I would do a small update.. I'm probably going to be starting to exchange air in about three days and hopefully a couple days after that knotting will commence. :thumbup:
so far, I like the cam a lot. :)

the new sig and title are very cool too bro ;)

cool, always hard to get decent prints from PE
should be interesting

heres a quick update... everything is great. 100% colonized (this sub is about 2 cakes worth of PF formula so 22 days is just about right for pins with the amount of inoculate I used... 10ml's) :thumbup: the casing that was applied prior to inoculation is staying relatively free of colonization. looks like a very healthy tray... I started exchanging the air yesterday by removing the lid to the container and sucking the air out via that "other" polyfil stuffed syringe with a sock over it.. then pumped air in and replaced the container lid. I'm hoping for pins in about two days time... then when they out-grow the container lid.. I'll remove the lid and place under the container and use the actual bag as the lid attached by adjustable zip ties (you can loosen them). :) heres the pic as of today...
it appears to be just about before knotting, which is good I'm guessing that it'll start pinning on the edges and directly in the center... where it was inoculated. :) the sub is pulling away from the container a little bit.. I believe this isn't actually the sub shrinking so much as it's a displacement of the air pockets within the substrate body by myc., basically pushing the freespace to outside the sub as it colonizes... it appears to have shrunk, but really it's just as big (with slight water loss but not as noticable) as when you made it. So once that appears to have happened to it's fullest, the sub is about ready to knot and produce some fruits... and all my subs do this right before they start pinning.. I think a sub that doesn't isn't balanced right.. over saturated which can be detrimental just like it can be with an over saturated cake. too much shrinking is a sign of major water loss and should be taken seriously... but if you look at the walls of that little container, they are well hydrated by the sub... shouldn't be long now. :)
