Thanks CT.
I just did a simple copy and paste to bring the image here from imageshack.

We are asked to please not link to offsite images.
The links get broken and go dead.
I'm no computer genius and managed to get it here so I know it can be done.

Bag culture of Panellus stipticus is turning out to be rather entertaining!
The bags, while colonizing, continue to appear brighter each day.
Still working on low-light photography.

I am anxious to see how one turns out when the bag is stripped away and allowed FAE. I'll be finding out soon and will post progress pics here.

Looking great Myc. I checked out my plates of the culture of you send me in the dark for the first time last night. They've been fruiting for a while, so that had a beautiful glow to them. So exciting!

So the mycelium is glowing while it is still colonizing the bag?

You have the touch, man. Damned cool thread.

:headbang: Yes! Persistence Pays Didivends! :headbang:

Finally got those photos I've been struggling for. Thanks for the photography advice everyone. Couldn't have done it without you!

These are the photos strait from the developer - no alterations using:
35 mm traditional film camera
"bulb" setting for shutter operation
jerry-rigged cable release - exposures set for 10-15 min.
f4.0 - widest aperture possible for this model camera
ISO 400 film
tripod

Got one of these fruiting in the greenhouse. Bag was removed yesterday so I should see fruitbodies within the next 2 or 3 weeks. Will keep updating.

These fungi are very tough and equally resistant to contamination.
Still fruiting and glowing like mad.

I had several bags which I gave out as gifts. Recently, I got one back to check progress. Lots of interesting growth if the culture is deprived of ample fresh air.

Looks like a good cluster found a pin-hole in the bag to jump through.
