    Contam or paranoia

    Hey all! Refrigerated some of my colonised jars for a few months but they're quickly springing back into action. I noticed this anomaly in one of the jars (the largest ). I'm assuming its yeast (but hoping its primordia forming lol) thankfully isn't present in any other jar. I'm planning to fruit it in a separate small tub as I'm told yeast contam can prevent fruiting. What are your thoughts on this? Have you seen these spots before and is it consistent with yeast? Thanks so much everyone!

    growing on old VS new coco coir

    Hey all, My block of coco coir has been sitting out the front of my house for sometime (months), still dry. Is pasteurisation going to cut it or are contaminants going to run wild and should I just buy another block. Has anyone had success with an older block of coir or is it important that it's clean. Cheers all!
  3. Hey all, I am 95% sure I am taking spore prints of wild cubensis found growing out of a cow pat outside of Newcastle but a couple of things are stumping me. The stipe (not pictured) has a purple/black annulus present although with no blue bruising and the dried caps are papery, thin and spongey. Is this consistent with your experiences of wild cubensis? Cheers guys! I love the spore prints from these

    Flora of Australia

    Hey all! Just started an ambitious quest in hunting down all volumes of Flora of Australia, (5 so far...) If anyone has any volumes lying around, collecting dust or looking for a better home please let me know - they are about as in-depth as i can find when it comes to identification! Thanks so much everyone!

    Coordinated flushes

    Thank you so much, you managed to decode my post pretty well haha! I never realised how much genetics would play a role so i'll have to have a play around with clones etc Cheers!

    Coordinated flushes

    Hey all! Through all my fungal projects i have never noticed "flushes". Growth seems to be uncoordinated - if i were to harvest as soon as the mature fruit was ready i would be harvesting some under developed fruit with them. I was hoping someone could tell me what conditions should be met to coordinate flushes. Thanks again guys!
