Honey vs Karo (pics included)

I would really like to post the pics, but ever since the server migration this stupid ass windows mobile 5.0 phone just wants to drive me insane. If anyone can help me I'd greatly appreciate it.

your 'test' is fatally flawed,
genetic variations are greater than those caused by the media choice.

First, with goliath, hawaii and jalisco pans, popcorn seems to colonize hay/poo much better and faster than other grains.
Second, all spawn jars usually have some extra mycelium in them stuck on sides and bottoms after moving to bulk. If you are quick to dump and cap the jar, you can re-inject with liquid culture media and find mycelium to pick up and grow very quickly - much better than spores. Also, the grain itself (a few popcorn grains left or a dozen rye grains or so left) with sterile water provides enough nutrients to get good mycelial LC growth. Finally, after many jars, I can say that karo is better for pans than maltodextrin/light malt extract, unlike cubensis. A couple ml H2O2 per 250ml and contams are all but occasional.
Hope this is helpful or that it is not already threaded elsewhere.
