I particularly wanted ovoids. So, so, so unlikely.  :angry:

I'll be gathering prints soon...............nothing like a fresh print to renew your faith...........

My assumed Cyan baby myc that lives in a Petri dish (the pic I uploaded yesterday) started to grow some "fingers". Two. I don't know what to call them. Some small out-of-plane growth that's clearly trying to get to the neighboring twig. It's fascinating; it's like there are some chemical markers in the cooked twigs that tell the myc, grow here, come this way, there's food here. I can't capture it on a picture. I tried. But I can see it with a loupe.

They're incredibly tenacious and seek out new food, I'm not sure exactly how they are doing it either but they definitely do........I'm never bored with the amazing things fungi do to survive.............watch it go rhizome............. :biggrin:

 

I love to see a forest of those fingers coming up through layers of soil into new fresh wood chips and chunks and colonizing them................

 

Very good salvia....................

Congrats, you learn pretty fast. Probably because you did it on the fly and asked questions.

I bet you will be able to ID mycelium just by its growth soon.

Now it's just the allenii discs that are a bit lazy. I'm sure they'll catch up :smile: I just told them that both the cyans and the ovoids are ahead, so, hurry up.

But I'm not allowed to post about stupid paper discs because that's not the way to do this because it's so, uhm, unconventional. Paper discs can harbor all kinds of contams and you never know what you're growing anyway. So now I have to wait until they colonize so much of the birch twigs I gave them that no one can see the paper discs anymore so I can upload a pic.

People have been using paper and card to grow-capture-spawn for years, I think its was the sudden leaping that put people off.

At times you seemed to suddenly fast forward before learning a few steps, however you seem to be on track.

 

Keep going with what you have learned, and the advice that has been-will be given.

 

You will learn all sorts of new things you did not know or see before.

I might be "unconventional" in my approach, yes. I'm a researcher. I do research for a living. No, not related to fungi. That's just how my brain operates. Curious, passionate, critical, must try, fails, gets up, tries again. Sorry if that appears to be "too much".

No need to apologize for being you.........my only concern was you developing frustration and not continuing........woodlovers can be challenging because your results may not be evident for two years...........I'm glad you're you! 

 

You keep going and doing what you're doing..........we're watching.....

 

Wanna see some woodlover mycelium?
