    Awesome work GG. Did 4 test bags myself and they are all doing great. They are about 80% colonized with no contams.
    Ended up doing all KO Tristan because my HK spawn over grew before I could get the right lime lol. Got some K-12, shiitake 75 and pl. pulmonarious ready to spawn so I will make up another round soon.

    Hey Rooster, excuse my ignorance, but what do you mean that your HK spawn over grew?

    Awesome man! Post pics when you get fruits. The k12 had a really great first flush, the subsequent flushes weren't that great (for me).

    It grew to dense to break up. Had to use a screwdriver to get it out of my jars.

    Alohas CS strain. This was lime pasteurized, supplemented with 1 cup of bran and spawned with 1 quart jar (a lot).

    I allowed this one to fully colonize and popcorn, and then stripped the bag to brown for about 2 weeks.

    After it was fully brown I soaked over night and put in to fruiting. I think I will be doing more where I let them brown outside of the bag. It is much faster than waiting 3 months in the bag.

    That's awesome, what kind of yield did you get on that?

    It is still growing. Will probably harvest tomorrow. I'll post the weight.

    Amazing number of fruit on a block!

    You let it brown out of the bag?! When I've tried that I just get greens. Do you let it dry right out when you strip it?

    The final weight was just under a pound. IMG_5918.JPG

    It did dry out quite a bit, so I had to soak it.

    I had to share this one. Its a Phoenix cluster weighing in at 1.39lbs, harvested from a 4.5lb block. There was another smaller cluster on the other side.

    I thinks it is Jeff's culture from multi-spore. I spawned this one heavier than I normally do.

    Looks a bit like Grifola from that angle. Nice bouquet!

    Here is the Reishi that I found and cloned about a month ago. The one from this thread.

    It's pretty fast!

    Hey GG did you get that Phoenix from Hac or Jeff directly? They are nice either way.

    You have a nice reishi culture there and have the gh dialed in for them. Nice!

    I got it from Amanita over at the shroomery.

    Thanks! I am very happy with both of these cultures.

    Cool. It looks like an iso I made from ms and gave to Hace, that's why I asked. I call it "Wavy". I have another from he same original plate that is flat. They are super fast fruiters. I need to grow them more.

    I have the culture from Hacendado and can confirm.. started fruiting in the bag and is moving along quickly. BTW GG, I noticed your bags of reishi are on their side. It's my first run with reishi, should I lay them over or is upright okay?
