    Hello Mushie fans,

    I did a lot of research, and it's still taking 3x's longer. Colonizing the jars took one month, but they're happy. Now, I bet it's realistically another month before I can eat one out of my monotub. Has anyone had healthy, slow grows? I'm sure it's a lesson in patience.

    Same boat here! I guess PESH are know for slow growth but damn I'm impatient lol! My colonization jars are in a cooler spot though so I may have to wrap in towels and see if that warms them up or maybe monitor a heating pad under it just to bump temps... I now place my colonizing cultures inside a plastic tote to help keep temps up and contams out! What race you studying? I have a quart jar of popcorn from 4/20 that just started showing life with a spot the size of a dime but I also jumped impatiently on using my LC that wasn't near ready yet lol... lots of learning lessons from this and I'm learning to forget about them so I stop bothering their growth... sometimes they dont want to be talked to I guess

    Right the growing is soooooo interesting I have a hard time not looking! Everyday I'm like "wonder what has happened" then I'm like "damnit quit touching everything with your dirty ass contaminations" I love this shit!

    It's a groovy way to pass quarantined time

    Yeah, I did this back in school years ago. And just got back into it super hard with this whole lockdown ish.. but yo, I've read a bunch of threads and seen your name pop alot..haha.. you a busy guy on here.. anyway, I too have PESH in my current..ahh..research study group....haha.. and as I look through my log journal; my jars in brf, corn meal, and most the various grains I've tested PESH EXPLODED with cray cray Rhyzo growth from the gate.. wondering if its climate variations or what.. I had em in an incubator and that was just too much I guess cause its warm enough without it anyway.. and once I put em in stacked milk crates, was the ticket...

    Also, since we're around the same point on em..your prob alittle ahead actually; but the first tub I did with them has been a fiasco... like they knot up and it all looks picturesque in the morning..and then by the end of the day after no forward progression, I try to optimistically quell the negativity and "sleep".. and it's only gotten worse.. so question is after all that; are they in your experience, delayed fruits, or possibly casing required?? I mean I'm kinda at a loss and about to toss this huge delicious looking cake before I loose my mind..haha. everything else has run out swimmingly... so at a loss here... thanks. Oh and got to this tub through MS>LC>Agar test/then to my grains with the LC... all seemed on the up and up... genetics should be okay, cause have gotten others to fruit.. it's just this was my first big ass mono, verses small shoebox type and stuff.. any direction would be greatly appreciated thanks!

    Hi. Don't use big ass jars. They're more likely to stall or contam. I'm doing agar to half sized jars for a quicker flush. Also, don't mist too much or they get soggy and rot. I'm adding nutritional yeast flakes and they love it, spawn in under 24 hrs

    Hawaiians are crazy! Mine were super slow to colonize but were from multispore and fruited from pins in 2 days I think... maybe you birthed the cake too early and contams took over middle of cake. Mine shriveled when they developed Trichoderma as a grow buddy... you got pics of your setup? So do you mean you have had success on shoebox tubs?

    Also don't use a light bulb. Ambient light won't dry the cakes
