DIRTY azurescens on paper and cooked twigs, Day 3! Dirty means I'd already removed all myc from that small jar (agar) but forgot the clean it up. More myc grew, interspersed with lots of mold and bacteria. I removed the whitest parts anyway and put them on the same substrate I used for the paper disc transfer: a piece of cardboard in a Petri dish, with cooked birch twigs on top. I put the myc on top last Friday. I didn't even bother to remove all contams, just more or less. And here's what I have now. Look at that hungry beast!!!

It should be clean-clean enough in the end, once it has fully colonized. Nice work!

I agree and I'm betting this fruits too.....it might be awhile but with a properly made bed this is, IMHO, very likely to be a fruiting strain............GREAT JOB salvia!

That's it... it's grown everywhere... the branch it was hugging yesterday in the first pic is now covered almost all the way to the lower end!!! MUTANT ALERT!

Not mutation, adaption. Mutation is bad! Adaption is good, it will now eat paper and birch twigs.

Very good salviamycelium, the condensate alone tells me it's very active, then theirs the thick-strong very clean looking growth.

You have given birth to a very strong sample of [X] Azures? When ready take some twigs to a spawn run.

 

This means making a mini substrate, then using that as spawn to a full size fruiting setup.

 

Contratz on the beginner grower badge, now its transfers and fruiting.

But can I open the Petri (later, not now) or will it jump on me too and suck my brains out? Because it looks very hungry.

Its essentially open air safe as long as the paper and twigs are not modified (enriched). Make say 4 x 250ml containers of substrate.

Put 1-2 twigs in the bottom of the containers, with your "open air safe" mini substrate on top, it will grow upwards.

 

When ready (observing the growth), use as spawn for 4 x 1250ml containers-jars-bags-other.

Stick to "open air safe" recipes-techniques, this means avoiding starch-sugar products. Once ready, you can make attempts at starch rich methods.
