Nice, looks great for a clumsy person like me :) It think a tutorial on making those lids would be beneficial though.

I have some pics of the lids but not the entire process. I will try to come up with something ;)

Nice write-up man. I very rarely need more than two plates so this could be helpful. I just need to make some of those lids.

I also did not know that agar goes bad when you heat it more than 2 or 3 times.

It's not that it goes bad per say but looses it's gelling strength, has trouble solidifying properly leaving very wet plates, and can become very mushy.

I am going to post something in a few on how I made my lids. I don't have many photos of the process but I will explain it as great detail as possible.

thank you for your contribution. I've made this an official shroomology tek, in the agar section.

      A big gap.  It was a story about ayahuasca and antibiotics that got me wondering about mixing the two being a bad idea.   Thank you for the input.

      Intriguing and harrowing case report of someone who injected themselves with mushroom (P. cubensis) tea...spores included. He nearly killed himself doing this, and was on ICU life support for multiple-system organ failure for some time. He had bipolar disorder type I and had been researching ways to treat his opioid dependence and depression, and was intrigued to give psychedelics a try. One very weird take away from this: "...the species of mushroom he had injected was now growing in his blood". Not only did the mushroom spores survive boiling, but they germinated and started growing in his bloodstream according to this. Curious about the wider evolutionary implications of this pertaining to the mushroom...given how tough and resilient mushroom spores appear to be, it calls into question the hypothesis put forward that psilocybin acts as a repellent...perhaps it more likely acts as an attractant. Makes me curious about the association of P. cubensis with bovine dung, perhaps bovines are ingesting spores and helping distribute them...I wouldn't put it past those crafty fungi. https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7mp74/man-injects-magic-mushrooms-they-grow-in-his-blood Study: Giancola et al.

      Thanks guys. I inoculated the LC via an agar wedge. Although the mycelium in the LC looked a bit lackluster, it does seem to be colonsing jars of rice/dung without issue. Time and heat definitely isn't an issue, the room the LC and grain jars are being stored in is nice and warm, and initial growth was rapid. Thank you for the recipe switch recommendation...I will definitely try this if I have issues.

      What's going on over there on the right?
