ok so I just realised the pink oyster is Pleurous salmoneo-stramineus not Pleurous djamor
I have transfered the Pleurous salmoneo-stramineus to six grain jars. Fingers crossed

UPDATE: This seems to have contaminated as well, it's either that these were slightly damaged at the top and it has let contams in or my grain was simply not wet enough to rehydrate the spawn.
Fuck I'm good at failing LOL...  at least i'm an expert at something!!

At the giant green hardware warehouse in Australia you can now find this seed brand having a crack at dried wheat spawn:



The spawn has instructions for inoccing the boards, or for straw.

I'll be interested to see and hear any feedback on how these go!
Could potentially be a good way to build up a collection of different varieties  :-\

They have four gourmet and 2 regular strains.

They might have amazing genetics though.  Well, they'll need to be pretty good if they fruit off those boards.

Hi

I can contribute to this topic. I bought all the Marvellous mushroom kits to try isolate their strains. They are FULL OF BACTERIA. I have wasted enough agar plates...

I also inoculated master jars with their dried spawn, and it grew a shit ton of bacteria. By miracle in one single jar I had a single dried grain spawn germinate and extremely slowly half colonised, then got greens.

Recently some permaculture folks in Townsville got given for free old spawn from this Mara brand you were showing. I won't bother but hope it works for someone :) (also instead of buying their kits for nearly the same money you can buy a whole bale of straw and enough spawn from forum members to grow a crapload of mushies... :)

I suspected that might be the case.

The block in the photo doesn't look colonised enough for the number of fruit that is cranking out.

They are far lighter individually though

ive also tried these  had a crack at the shiitake and the yellow ones both turned green no matter what /how I tried. cant even isolate something on agar except green stuff. at the mega store where we bought them they didn't supply the boards with them so don't fancy peoples chances if us so called experts cant get it right

HahHa worowa you should have taken out a licensing agreement, that you'll supply them spawn for 5c from every packet they manufacture.

The Bunnings packs are garbage. I have all the toys for sterile work here and I couldn't even get a clean agr plate out of the packs

A purchaser for one of the hardware chains told me the entire line is being withdrawn becase of contam problems and complaints about contam
