Rhino foot (edibles) share time [THAILAND]
Posted 14 April 2007 - 12:45 PM
My first attempt with this same project failed because I think there was too much magnesium in the casing. The fruiting growth was really weird looking! So it was re-cased with standard material and is looking pretty good at the moment.

Got anymore prints Jim? lol.
I had this stupid tree stump outside of my old house that was loaded with small turkey tails. I guess they contaminated my plate.

very cool looking shrooms! are they actually cultivated normally, or did you find some and work on them yourself?

Yet another prime example of why to be more cautious with cross contamination. Who knows, maybe the mushroom cap from the Rhino Foot was contaminated with these spores. Bummer either way.
Whoever archives this thread can remove my muck prior to doing it. :)

I got a new print from siam jim for another attempt. I won't be growing this particular contaminate now that I know what it looks like on agar.

Well good luck with your new project Workman.

Those rhino's look beautiful, I love mushrooms with abnormal colors.

also there are many polypores species over here. hope the second print will work out.

I am pouring new plates today for testing the newer print. I will update this thread if something develops. I know this species will be a good one if I can just get some viable mycelium going.

I meant; is it because they're so ubiquitous in nature, OR because the fungus is sporey? Ah, nevermind. lol
