    Maybe just because your running low try making a syringe to stretch them... maybe agar isnt hydrated enough I think that might be my problem as they wont do anything after almost 2 months now.... what are these fancy named cultures you speak of I have never heard of them...

    Psilocybe hoogshagenii from Mexico think they are a truffle producer but can’t remember .they are a secondary decomposing verity so straw poo and rye grass seed are what they like to eat .very strong little guys but picky .all this is off the top of my head so take it with a grain of salt .

    O those are those long skinny ones right!? Heard those are a bitch... maybe try some dog food agar or something they can really eat up.... can you make a straw agar lol

    U know that may be worth a try I’ll add some straw ! And may try a syringe it’s such a small amount I’m scared of messing up but letting it go unused is an even bigger sin .

    Maybe even try one syringe with potato water it might wake them up! You can do it!

    O and dont know if I ask you already but have you done BRF agar maybe due to it being a grain eater it might like that.... does that agar exist lol

    I’m sure u can make it sleep think it’s a hydration problem so may try the syringe was thinking a hyper hydration agar but have no knowledge of that so syringe it is I think thepotato water is actually a good idea thinking outside the box there.i like it.
