    Your reishi bags will do fine upright. I put them on there sides so water doesn't pool up in the bags, and it seems to encourage conks (it could have nothing to do with it though).

    I'd say it works. Those are some realy nice fruits, especially that quickly.

    I agree it does seem to make it easier for them to form conks, I even fruit my tubs on their side sometimes :)

    Reishi myc is so damned strong you could probably fruit a tub upside down, lol.

    Now you got me wanting to try it, just to see... That would be pretty cool.

    Here's the one that's fruiting

    This one I think I let go too long, it started growing up in toward the filter in this leathery mass. You can see the bag molded into the myc.

    There's one more in the back, it is sitting upright to act as a control. As I was uploading the pic I noticed the water collecting inside the bag and sliced some drain holes in with a clean scalpel. No more rain barrel in the fruiting chamber.

    That one had started growing through the filter and as you can see it's also in the shape of the cut away bag.

    Some pioppino's from my new martha. Some of the blocks have an uneven pin set. I may still need to tweak the humidity a little.

    These are on hardwood fuel pellets, lime treated and supplemented with one cup of wheat bran.

    Thanks! This strain is Swordbelt. It has never let me down! I made some spore prints to see if I can get anything good from them.

    Can I ask what you find to be the best conditions to induce pinning and fruiting? I use a similar recipe for my blocks and it is Swordbelt strain, but my yields are mediocre and I haven't figured out why yet.
