Four BRF jars (see PF tek) inoculated with around 2mL live fragmented Golden Oyster (Pleurotus citrinopileatus) liquid culture. 370mL jars used (Bonne Maman jam).
Jars fully colonized after 14 days. Small quantities of metabolites observed in 2/4 jars (see above image). Cakes birthed and spawned to straw (see Straw tek).
After 7 days, basket looks almost 100% colonized.
After 13 days post-spawn (6 days after basket was fully colonized), I moved the basket into a shotgun FC. It was when I did this, that I discovered the first pinsets had developed. The basket was pinning on all sides, including a large pinset that had erupted from the bottom of the basket, through one of the drainage holes.
Lid left partially off FC, with misting 2-3 times per day. Humidity remaining around 70-75%. Temperature around 15C (60F).
Primordia starting to form individual “heads”, which will (hopefully!) become mushrooms. I’ve noticed that some pinheads have stalled. These will possibly continue to develop after the first harvest.
