Yes, multispore... Most of them are about the same size, a few rather large ones though. :) And, these are very very hard this time. Not quite like rocks, but hardly able to squish them, yet as cubies are, hollow. Really nice mushrooms! They should be almost the same size when dry by the feel of them.



I also sent out a lot of cambo prints from the last time I did them... contests, gifts, etc. Maybe I helped to get some cambo spores out there. hehe I know the bee loves the strain. Probably his fav. ;) hah



I tried them on compost and cakes last round. Tried spawning my compost mix with pf cakes. Not sure what was up, they came up REALLY quick, but never did much after. Seems they are quick at spreading, but slow or weak at eating into stuff. They myc never really spready out. I'd like to try it again using a good amount of grain spawn and see if that makes a difference... So, seeing this, I did cakes again this time, cuz they came out well (this time even more so), and, I made some straw pint cakes up using some pf cakes as spawn, and some straw to see how they do off of that. They colonized them in a week. VERY VERY fast spreaders the cambos seem to be. And straw, so easy to eat and quick, good combo I think. So, here's the cakes in the containers. Giving em a bit more, then birthing, and will see how they fruit. (These were done way after the other cakes were birthed too, just saved a few cakes to try this with to use as spawn in the case in the dark.)

Dooby, those are great! The straw cups will be really cool! Are you going to birth them out of the cups?

You betcha. Just giving em a little more feeding time. The only air holes in them are in the lids to breath. Gonna see if they need dunking or not when I birth. If they do, it's gonna be fairly short cuz of the way the straw soaks up water so quickly. Also, I'm expecting to have to do a little more air changes with these since mycelium feeding on straw seems to really need, and also benefit from fresh air more.

I opened the straw pints tonight... mmmmm, what a nice fresh mushroom smell. Even though there are holes in the lids I opened them all anyways just for a quick breather and put the lids back on. The plan is to birth them in a day or two and place them into a terrarium. Not sure about dunking/casing them yet.

I birthed the cakes, what a lovely smell indeed! mmmmm mmmm MMMMMMMMMM


Here's some pics... nice myc masses... some are kinda light, some are not.. no dunking yet. I'm gonna let them go and see what happens. They are currently in a terrarium with perlite and misting/fanning with no casings.

Here are the straw pints at 3 days from birthing. They were given light earlier b4 birthing them (I forget how long, a week maybe), and they already look to have tiny knots forming on them (pre-pins!). Oh yeah baby! ;) hehe

Straw seems to go pretty quick... I have noticed too that it it requires far more air exchange than cakes or even my compost bin. Instead of just airing out the terrarium with these straw pints in them 3 times per day, I'm doing at least 6, sometimes more if there is time. Keeps that fresh air going and stale co2 vented out.

Ive noticed the same, straw will start to stink and contam without a ton of fresh air. foaf just acquired this sleep apnea air pump device. Its set on a timer along side the humidifier and every 2 hours it sends fresh air streaming into the fc to clear everything out. Works great so far, manual fanning is almost not necessary ;)

dooby this truly is impressive,
and the more i look at this thread, the more i wonder if this could be done with pasteurized straw instead of pressure cooked


I never said this was pressure cooked. The straw was soaked in warm bleach/lime, drained, then used.

Fruits forming... one short stubby with some fancy rosecomb deformity. :) Pins seem to be forming a little more where water comes in contact with them on the bottoms at the foil... a few elsewhere. I think after this flush and a dunk they'll really explode. Right now they feel quite airy and light actually.
