  5. Hi all, hope everyone is well and hope I'm posting in the right place. My 1st attempt, brf colonized beautifuly. bulked to hpoo ( made the mistake of casing about 2 inch at spawning instead of letting bulk colonize first. also may have sterilised instead of pasturised, found it hard to keep the temp low ) and getting nice rhizo coming through but also threads as in pics. I sprayed with 3% h2o2 but came back after a day or so then I applied salt but still came back in other places. I got curious and shifted 2 trays outside to see if that would stop it and it didn't also lifted the surface and the threads seem to be right through the hpoo. It seems less dense than pics I've seen of cobweb types and trych and I haven't noticed any pins or sporulating ( maybe bacteria? ) ( it's been about 2 weeks ). Any ideas? Too wet? Also no fruit but a few knots showing. Thanx

    dreaded noob question, contam or weak myc?

    Hey Zen, I've read a lot that coir is spose to be great. It might be a bit ambitious of me but I think i'll try as many teks as possible. Fortunately the prints I have are seriously dark so I will be able to do a lot of cakes. I should prolly have started with fruiting straight from cakes but it was too tempting to go for the big job :-)

    dreaded noob question, contam or weak myc?

    Thank you so much sally. Nicely written out too, I actually understood all of it. Round 2 is coming up in a weekish so I'll be trying that for sure :-) I'm also sure I have to tidy up a lot of my procedure but the casing with hpoo while spawning was a silly excited noob mistake. Live n learn :-) Thanx again

    dreaded noob question, contam or weak myc?

    Thanx Sally. yeah, I guess that's why the knots are doing nothing. Any idea what or how ( I know, but gotta ask ) my feeling is I messed up by smothering it with a " casing " when I spawned to bulk. When I took a tray outside and broke it up, the colonised layer looked and smelled nice but the " casing " was riddled with those threads. Thanx
  9. Hello, hope this thread isn't too old but found it while searching for similar issues. Friend in NSW is trying to make a c/card purchase at sab webstore without creating a paypal acc ( order info says there is alternate cc option ) but keeps getting directed to paypal server. Any advice appreciated Thanx Easily confused

    How resilient are young lophs?

    Good luck mate, I just lost most of my 1 year old lophs ( 25th dec of all days ). Half a day in the perth sun and they went very pale then about 10 or so days later ( I placed them in the shade ) and the worst hit turned to jelly. oh well, live and learn. The survivors are kinda burnt in half semi circle style but seem to be hanging in there.

    Synth seeds

    I saw the process on a doco years ago, they showed small tissue cultured individuals been dropped in a solution that coated the embryo like a testa. I found this on a new Zealand forestry website http://www.insights.co.nz/sustainable_plantations_stf.aspx Another propagation technology which is being developed is somatic embryogenesis – the formation of multiple embryos in culture. Embryogenic cell lines are established from immature seed, and millions of immature embryos of individual genotypes can be multiplied from each seed. These embryos are developed and matured under controlled laboratory conditions and then can be germinated like natural seeds. The efficiency of this process is still low, but the technology has the potential to produce unlimited quantities of embryos of desirable genotypes at costs cheaper than current control-pollinated seed prices
