Since cyans usually fruit in fall and ovoids in the spring are you anticipating/expecting any ovoid  fruit  this spring or are the beds mature enough ?

 

BEZ !

I'm hoping for some fruits. I'm sure they'll pin. This ovoids had way more thought put into them. Nice little slope that floods but drains well and protected by tons of holly and a fence.
Cyans were dug a few feet down where Oysters and Shiitakes have popped off blocks readily (under a juniper).

I want to build almost completely underground facilities with only one, maybe two, courses of block and a standard roof just above ground, almost at ground level actually.....

 

For medicinal/edible farming in addition to a huge plugged log collection....

Dry air, especially with a dry wind blowing, will tend to kill fruiting within hours.....

 

It's probably well worth our time to study the humidification of air. Ovoids are found wild in a riparian environment, very close to continuous (at least persistent) water sources.

Arathu, your little friends are ADORABLE!

 

After going from grain to naturescapes, i let the mycelium consolidate for quite a while (20 days) and have now expanded it onto more naturescapes in a bigger tub.  at a 1:3 ratio, roughly (spawn to new chips).

 

I want to make as much spawn as possible indoors and make several beds in the spring, in different locations, to cover all my bases, in case one location is more favorable than the others.  Experimentation!

 

Other than plastic tubs, is there any other way out there that yall can think of for me to expand and store colonized wood chips indoors?  

 

Once I am making the beds, what ratio of colonized chips to fresh chips can I use?

There's no ratios, I'd assume. Just as much spawn as you can fit in a bed.

That tiny hole has already taken over whatever is nearby. 

BAGS!

Just insulated my beds even further as it's expecting to hit the negatives finally. 

Used a bucket of melted snow and a pile of leaf litter/greens (composting since fall). Made a nice paste that I was able to work all over my beds. Gonna rummage around and find more debris if I can.

Man, if you can help it, keep doing exactly what you're doing.....that fungus is digging the entire scene.....  1:3 ratio is beautiful (like 1" thick spawn layer to 2" thick new substrate ,

 

1:5 and even beyond works too but can be way slower......more chance for competition too....

 

I personally like using layers in a bed with grasses in between a few of them......spawning 1:3 makes for a solid block of mycelium pretty quick.....a dirt and mulch casing kept damp is the capstone....

 

Change of season triggers....

I'm lucky no real competition here. Tested by just soaking wood and seeing if anything would pop over 2-3 years. 

 

I did layers of dried grasses, hay, small twigs, compost, naturscapes, then just started feeding as it quickly made work of the initial pile. Thrown some totems and huge logs in too. 

A. That bag I've been posting is all softwood. Think I'll split in 1/2 and do a pure softwood and a mixed wood pile to compare fruiting capabilities.

Technically 1:2 ratio spawn to sub in layers.........

 

Really though.....healthy mycelium from a few dozen solid rye berries........ a bed will make......sometimes very slowly..

 

But not as readily as a significant spawn ratio...keeping in mind that the less grains used in outdoors beds the better......

 

Chips, chopped branches, and stems for spawn is ideal....

Hey Arathu what are you growing? They look great! Here is my first round of "clean" cyan mycelium, first transfers from the spore plate so one more round of isolation then to a master slant, a l.c. and some sawdust jars to start an island!

@Sicshroom, ovoids in a tray....you're looking good there.......

 

Nothing like the woodie nation firing up some new cultures......beautiful!

 

Everybody stick with it.....might take a lot longer but well worth the trouble....

Wow your ovoid game is on point! Are you having to use any temp control or anything specialized to achieve fruits indoors?

Softwoodbag getting breached. Hard to snap a pic into a bag.

cyans.JPG

A, is that too dry? It's moving but my eyes say it's thirsty. 
bag.JPG
Wow just looked back a few weeks, this bag just put on the burners!

Consolidating but the top i'd assume should colonize better. Cynic in me thinks those ropes are mainly on plastic. I know the chips were buried deep within and top is reaching. I'm not too worried as nature will take care of it in a few months. 

One more. Labeled Pan cyan wild coast (lady labeled this round). My eye say Ps. Cyan.

Those cultures all look pretty good from here......healthy vigorous and aggressive mycelium......woodies are just way slower than others.....

Alright A what's your magic?

Did you make a normal bag and throw it outside for environmental triggers, then brought in as it pinned?
