    Hello folks! I have been seeing this method get a lot of buzz on reddit and decided to try it out. I innoculated 7 bags of microwave brown rice with approx 1cc of spore solution (P. cubensis [B+]). This was done by cutting a corner of the bag to create a small opening. This was used to inoculate and then covered with micropore tape. All of this was done in front of a flow hood, so hopefully there will be zero contam issues.

    I will keep updating this post as the process continues. Plan is to spawn these bags to two smaller unmodified monotubs. Happy New Year to the Mycotek family! Hope 2020 is full of healthy growth in all domains of life. ✌

    How did your grow work out? What was the dry weight? Hope you were successfulam interested in trying myself.Its been over 40 years since my first grow. A far cry fro only spore prints and petri dishes. Even though you cant beat the old days. After you turn 67 it doesnt hurt to take a short cut or two.

    Ack, I got a nice bulk grow then had to unexpectedly move during 100 degree heat which killed everything. I'm still happy to have been successful. Mush Love & Light!
