My pioppino culture sourced from Outgrow just wasn't that productive, I've seen pinsets from other strains that put mine to shame. So, I thought it would be good experience and possibly gratifying to work from a spore print and see what I could come up with. After many transfers, I selected the quickest of the mycelia and transfered it to grain. It vigorously tore through the spawn, went to bulk in XXL bags, quickly colonized those, and then was cased. More details: Spawn is whole oats. Sub is sterilized (3 hrs @15psi) HWFP, supplemented around 20% with oat bran, a handful of food grade powdered gypsum and a small bit of hydrated lime in each twenty pound (dry) batch. I spawn at a 1:5 (spawn/sub) ratio and allow to colonize in a flattened XXL .2 micron patch bag, allow to fully colonize, wait for slight browning, cut away the top of the bag and case with well hydrated coco/verm. Cased block goes in 66qt tub to await pinset. Which is where we are now. Those early pins there were there as tiny dots when I cased it several days back, they've pushed through the casing, I guess I'll leave them there. Second tub, cased a couple days after the first. A couple shoebox tubs done that same day. When they are properly colonized I'll expose them to fruiting conditions as trays in my indoor fruiting box. It has filtered air @ 60-65 F and ultrasonic fog running @ 90% or better. I'll try to upkeep this thread properly. Lots more to come with these pioppino. There's several more prospective selections on grains colonizing now. Looking forward to your suggestions!
