you think lack of air stifled the bags ?

Beautiful harvest man, I think those truffles are the best. Nocc'em and just wait till the harvest. They don't need too much care and I like their taste ;].

I have a piece of advice though - take a soft tooth brush and gently scrub them from mycelium and dry them really well. These buggers like to come alive and cover themselves with white furr when they feel humidity.

Are you planning to make some clones?

hey hip, shob told me before that it performs better in glass because its solid.. like the glass is hard while plastic is soft.. but i dunno
could also be the air factor

sadly, no clones from this harvest.. but i took a clone from one a few months back.. is till have three LCs sitting there just to be tested.. it was a tissue clone..

right now im storing them in the fridge in a paper bag like what invitro said..
when i placed on in the freezer, it did not form ice.. it seemed to be in the similar condition as the one being in the paper bag in the fridge..

i'll update if i have any storage news or trip reports ;)
