Forced fruiting experiment for P. Ovoids...
Posted 30 May 2008 - 06:29 PM
I collected about half of one patch and filled a kitty litter box with well colo'd chips..
Added some shredded mulch to fill gaps and to cover..
I started digging before i realized that a third flush was beginning:eusa_booh
The plan is to leave the tray outside for another month to allow the myc to
re-knit , while feeding a very mild nutrient solution...
Then move the tray to the fridge, then freezer for a few weeks..
The tray will then be encouraged to fruit in a cool room..
This patch which was created from stembutts, did give about 70g dry but feel it could have done better - this maybe an oportunity to maximize it's potential , with any luck...

i have three tubs of azures destined for outdoor beds.. but maybe i'll do this with one also.

Ideally the best time for a second fruiting would be when outdoor temps have fallen back into the 50-60F range [for Ovoids] which means Oct/Nov here...
Don't want to wait that long, so i'll use an air conditioned room and hope it's cool enough...If nothing kicks, then it's back to the fridge untill Fall..

Thinking 1 week there, then move to the deep freeze..
Been debating whether to cover completely or leave some breather vents..Think i will put some in...
Twoguys , did your tray recover..?
