Do you remember how long it took to colonize you block of sub?

About 6 months to finish it solid....

Here are 2 month old wide mouth pints of some woodlovers. First pic is P. Allenii on HWFB+ with a small amount of either ground brown rice or grain mix. Unfortunately, non of these are identical cultures, that being said, the grain mixes colonised first. Second photo is P. Ovoid, 2 jars w/grains, 1 with rice, can you guess which is which? :) Last pic is Allenii banished to the kitchen counter for showing signs of green. The small patch of green is still there, It has grains BTW.

The good, colonised jars with grains were W2W (wood 2 wood) transfered to bags of sub.

So, 6 months you say......... :)

Grain contains enough proteins (nitrogen source) to go around if there's enough of it, very nice.

Well things in the woodlover world tend to be a bit more tolerant. One will find the green pop up especially when working with grains but on wood as well.....

 

A move of a mycelium to a well shaded and wet/damp outdoors location heals damn near anything that pops up.....

 

You have some pretty good looking spawn started there.....soon you can pick a method and set that to a fruiting substrate or expand some more.....

The jar of rye grain this came from looked putrid with the green bastard........but a half of year with mom........

Observe nature and copy her......it's one way to get it done.....when trays and tubs fail.....the north side of large rock or wall protected from heavy winds and washout.......

 

Tucked beneath some mulch and moss.......a happy fungus....

 

You're well on your way Yoshi......good job man!

Messing with a new sub, pints almost colonized in 2 weeks, bulk bags seem to be moving at a nice clip too! Ovoids and Allenii.

Not that I can remember? Does it have a unique smell or do they look contaminated?

Your fungi look great.....

 

As far as smelling, I suspect that you will notice a very distinct scent to the ovoid and not forget it afterwards....

 

I think it's a language......

Sniff the filter patch but don't hurry it if you can smell anything yet....you should get a good whiff soon enough, either making a bed or setting up a tub, tray, or pot.....

 

Once you get fruits I'm thinking you'll definitely know.....
