So, not too much to report except that the pictured culture is ~75% colonized, and is showing the golden mycelium of later stage cordyceps!

 

Stay tuned, I'm going to attempt fruiting right in the jar.

Most edibles/medicinals come as live culture. Mycosymbiotics sells them for $10. Of course I'll have them too, and once I'm caught up sending stuff out, I'll do another "go vip give-aways" like the one below:

The grain jars are 100%

 

Oddly enough, this jar is only at 90% but this is the one I'm shooting for fruits right in the jar.

I gave the WBR jar it's own lid for increased O2 to hopefully induce pins. Ezfelt!

For those of you keeping track, this is the WBR grow, I mist the walls every couple days as it consolidates and hopefully fruits.

 

I spawned one grain jar to my normal 50:50 coir:dirt/manure sub into a 6qt shoe box.

 

I'm going to case one in the jar (Oss & Oeric style) with activated carbon, and I'll expand out the last jar and make back ups.

 

I might incorporate bat guano into a grow as suggested by @coorsmikey.

Gave it a new GE lid too. It should be noted that I soaked the activated carbon in h2O per a  suggestion by @heirloomSpores from here:

So small update. I made three syringes of this culture by milking grain and the second photo is just five days after inoculation.

 

Conversely, the top photo is taking forever, but still looks like fruits are coming. I open it to mist the walls of the jar ~every other day.

 

 

Here's the "oss & oeric" jar:

Your jars seem to be coming along nicely Cat, the orange spots look promising. What are your temperatures running for them?

This is what I think is the WBR culture trying to fruit.

 

Not pictured the 'oss & oeric' carbon jar (no change)

Thanks, maybe case half of it? I'm just winging it to see what the species will do with what I have laying around.
