This is a first attempt at spawning and wanted to see what the clone took to best so there is another tray of WBS>>Coir and two 10 gal totes of WBS>>Timothy hay/Coir.
I hear people have problems with the hay contaminating but no problems so far.

It does look like they could use a bit more fresh air though..
Hay as a sub can be pretty reliable if plenty o'spawn is used and it's not loaded with seeds...

FAE has increased now that I'm back in town. Also they were getting light at weird angles causing them to grow every different way. The casing not shown in the pic actually has a much better pinset but i can't get my phone to transfer the pics to my comp.
i'll keep you guys posted.

has anyone had problems with corroding of these types of aluminum pans? I noticed tiny holes wearing away on the sides of the pans visible in pic 1 of post 7. The bottoms were the most corroded and the cakes bottoms were hard and black. Could this be from the metabolic wastes reacting with the aluminum? I'm definitely using plastic next time.
The two 10 gal totes (WBS>>Timothy Hay/Coir) are starting to pin. FAE has been increased to 6-8 times a day but the small caps may be coming from a poorly chose clone.

Have you got a pic from the the tray it was growing from?

The last pic is the newest batch of jars nearing 100% colonization which i plan to spawn to either straw/coir or horse poo if i can find some soon.

The bottom of the stem was really skinny and dense but once the extra water was added the top segments expanded and became hollow and even splitting. these caps are going to be left to open so hopefully a few decent prints can be taken.

An inner tissue sample was transferred to a Karo LC and then used to knock up three agar LC solutions. 15 qts of WBS were knocked up and run through different subs just for kicks.
This last tub from that batch of WBS was made of pasteurized Timothy Hay from wally world and Coir. It has thrown out some of the weirdest looking fruits that bruise DEEP blue and are very dense.
