so Ive been trying my damnedest not to post threads on anything but results, but i just cant help my self. :eusa_sile :crazy1: :lol:

this is two Kellogg's bran flake crumbs cakes, that were birthed no more thana few weeks ago. verm water and crushed bran flakes cerial. no wood!

i gave them the ice dunk inside the jars they were birthed in and then put them in my FC for the shits and the giggles.

didn't expect much to be honest i still dont. but I'm sure that what I'm looking at is certainly pins and they keep getting bigger and more are popping up daily.

out of all the species i inoculated these kbf cakes shiitake was the only one to show any positive growth but not only was there growth there was really strong growth. fast and strong.

I'm going to try adding this to some of my subs in future experiments to see if it may have a positive in pact on yield.

Well done zodd

What ratios did you use? What sort of temps do shiitake need for fruiting?

will be interesting watching the shiitake's take off on the cereal. Not too supprising to me being the cereal is made of wheat and most every mushroom seems to like wheat
I have used multi grain cheerios in a pf style cake to fruit cubies once. Had 1 flush then had to toss it but put out a couple nice ones for the effort.

Those look awesome, how long was the colonization period and how did you noc them?

Im waiting for some shiitake in pint glasses with alder shavings and they are taking forever to even get thickly white, theyve been colonising for 4 months.

4 months seems like a long time for the pints to be colonizing makes me wonder if there is an issue.

Cool experiment! Wheat contains a ginormous protein called gluten that takes a while to break down. That means consistent nutrients for a much longer period of time. I'm sure that's why wood lovers do well on wheat products.

Marked for archives!

wow tastyB, what an honer it would be to find a piece of my work in the vaults.

i suppose i best provide some more background details for you guys then..

OK so the cakes were made exactly how i make rice cakes only i substituted rice flour with bran flake dust.

i ground bran flakes in blender till i got a powder, then mixed the verm, water, kbf using standard. 2/1/1 and in that order. i think it makes a huge difference adding the rice to the wet verm instead of any other way round.
next i loaded Jare's as i do cakes. i don't use vermiculite barriers ever with cakes. instead i plug a small hole with pollyfill for gas exchange.
then pc for 90 Min's and inoced with agar wedge

the mixture had a very sticky feel to it but not in the slimy stodge way like the wheat cakes Ive tried in the past felt. it was light and airy and fluffed up allot into a sort of sticky sponge.

loading jars was very difficult if i remember correctly. due to not been able to get the mix to stop sticking to the spoon, making it imposable to compress.

here some more pics a few days on. do you think these will appreciate a spray every so often?

I would
Infact id suggest that you get a fruiting chamber with pearlite and mist/fan 3 times a day. Good humidity and Fresh Air Exchange does a Shiitake good Misting the Shiitakes does not seem to cause aborts like with cubies (IME)
