    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!
  2. 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!

    Lions mane myc or yeast contam

    Does full colonisation look completely white?

    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!

    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!

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    Hey all! Woke up to this in the monotub can anyone confirm my suspicion of cobweb mould?? Cheers all! I'm just obsessing over the possible contam EDIT: I'm a hypo (myco?) chondriac

    Splitting monotub tek?

    Hey all! Haven't seen much on splitting a colonised but healthy monotub and mixing with fresh substrate... Is there any reason this wouldn't work? Cheers!
  18. TheMooseZeus

    Splitting monotub tek?

    Exciting news! Why isn't it more widely practiced? I've even heard people say its easier to start from scratch than to feed a monotub haha

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    Sure did! Thanks for reminding me to make an update - it didn't spread any further than the picture and the tub was A-OK!

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    Woo! Glad to hear it - slime mould would be be interesting... its not particularly slimy (looking) at all

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    God bless you! It's a bit of a mental game hey! And you're so right they're already giving me the lessons I'm after Cheers!

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    Here's the tote 12 days after spawning. Any idea what the contam is or more importantly how it can be avoided in the future? EDIT: I used probably half the grain spawn i should have in the tub so colonisation is expected to be slow, i'll continue to grow it out, no real harm in that
  23. TheMooseZeus

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    its definitely not strong growth, something i should be worried about? it hasn't really taken off any "fix"?? Cheers!

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    Woah, thanks so much! I guess im not alone in my hypochondria haha
  25. Hello! I have a really terrible slug problem, I go outside every night and execute 15 or so slugs on my plants in under 5 minutes. Can anyone recommend me a good and safe slug repellant or recipe and even plants i could use to deter them? - Me and my plants thank you
