If you have any questions, please free to ask. I'm way too lazy to do a full log.

I love doing these baskets - so simple, clean, and efficient (more surface area exposed per volume than tubs). These took about a month in total, and put out two flushes before it contaminated due to over-watering.

Enjoy!

No, I used a green garbage bag with holes as a humidity tent. I would spray the inside with a mister and every now again take it off for FAE.

BTW, total yield was about 4oz dry off the two flushes, and the one next to the Jimi CD was possibly the largest the one I got off of the basket - about 8.5g bone-dry.

This was done from a multispore syringe from Cap't Max (no longer a sponsor.)

I made a liquid culture out of corn syrup which I then used to innoculate popcorn jars. I prefer popcorn for several reasons:

1. less surface area to colonize = faster colonization
2. easier to break apart when transfering to basket
3. difficult to overwater

Cook the popcorn until most of the kernels crack, then they're ready.

I also think I lucked out with the size of the fruits. Most Texan cubes tend to be known for producing lots of pins but having smaller fruit-body sizes. These ones came out to be far more dense and larger than usual, which is more characteristic of this strain growing in its native habitat.

And thanks everyone, for the compliments :)

Sweet. How about a little more info, how much spawn was used in that bad boy??

So you just layered pasturized straw, spawn, the straw, etc to the top Im assuming?

Was colonization done in the dark or just out in the open?

Six quart jars were filled about 1/4 of the way each. This leaves plenty of room to break apart the spawn by tapping the side.

When the basket was made, it was layered in alternating layers of spawn and straw. It's important to make sure that the kernels are touching each other because it recovers sooner.

Colonization took place on top of a table in the living room.
