Recent snowstorms provided an opportunity for a nice, cold dunk.
Projects were left outdoors for around 72 hours to endure a pretty heavy snowstorm - subsequent accumulation and melting of said snow - and drained on the 3rd day for return to the greenhouse.
I tried to part the grass a little to demonstrate the overlay
This is a textbook case - the mycelium is so dense at the casing layer surface, that it is near impervious to water.
Fortunately, when flooded, the blocks can absorb water like a sponge and hydrate from any direction.
A little scraping exposes a dense, ropy (and very tough), rhizomatic network of mycelial strands getting ready to produce fruit. :D
Over the next few weeks, I expect that we'll be seeing pins and hopefully, in a month or so.......fruitbodies. Fingers crossed.
One of the four tubs pictured is an Azurescens project which I'll cover in another thread.
