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.....

UPDATE

 

You guys remember my chip spawn that had some contams on wood? Well cyan of course won over contams and it completely colonized the block 

 

around 5 weeks ago i spawned a bed in woods, I used some birch chips, some wood chips from the forest that i pasteurized, and some coir/sawdust on top of the bed and covered with cardboard with leaves on top to keep the moisture

 

cyan_ outdoor.jpg   cyan_ outdoor (2).jpg

 

Should I change anything?

 

I was thinking of adding some soil/peat casing? Maybe some hay /straw?

 

 

Thanks

I wouldn't change a thing until fall arrives. You'll want to keep an eye on that as the temperatures start to drop down especially into the 50's and below and with rain.

 

If it pins up take the cardboard off (unless of course the pins are growing from cardboard then just water the beast) and case with less than inch of shredded grasses or straw.....and fruit it.......

 

A light casing of Naturescapes mulch could also be added to that and kept moist.......if you do then do it soon.....else wait for pins as grasses are always an option outside....

 

If no pinning leave the cardboard on the bed, feed it the mulch first, and bury that baby for the winter......that looks like a very happy fungus.....

 

Good job man!

Thanks Arathu!

 

I wish we had naturescapes in my country, i cant find anything similar.

 

Then I will just leave it and hope for the pins!

I was not aware of that Rac3k, sorry for my assumptions.

 

I'm sure that making mulch/wood chips/saw dusts by hand is quite labor intensive.......because I've done it......

 

My gas powered wood-chipper died so I've been looking for another deal......I was using that to chip windfall branches and tree trimmings, etc. etc.....

 

Japanese knotweed is an invasive plant in many places (apparently hated in the UK and elsewhere too) that has a bamboo like stalk and WOODIES seem to love it. It makes a huge biomass each year.....

 

That and plants like it can be processed by hand or with hand tools.......There are definitely options.......

 

Good growing vibes coming atcha man......

Thanks for the suggestion, I looked up and its a familiar plant, it grows very near and they often cut it down so there is alot of mulch and stems around,...I will use this!

Man I learn a lot just reading the last few pages of this thread as it grows . I’m about to have access to a spot that I can transfer about a pint of colonized and unshaken cyan oats . It looks like the top dried out because the last half inch of oats is untouched similar to a casing layer . The myc still looks nice and white . Gotta find a spot and prep a bed .

A few 1/2 pint test jars of P. Subaeruginosa. Left, just pine shavings in the mix. Center, pine shavings with "Eastern hard and softrwood" pellets. On the right is pine shavings with HWFB. The pine/hard/soft wood appears to be the best of the 3 so far.
