The Finch/Wild birdseed thing just ain't workin' out. I have a dandy little co-op store near me that has every kind of off the wall grain or flour you could name. All organic. It's where all the hard-core quotes shop. I have 13 qt jars knocked up x-mas day (finchseed) so I'm just planning ahead. If these get cob-web mold, i'm gonna go with something that isn't so touchy as far as sterilization time/moisture is concerned. BTW hi to all. been away for a bit...
I'll post a pic later to verify the cob-web mold. But I'd sure like a good suggestion for my little kids, they need life!!

is this ralphsters cambo cubensis?
it grows really thin for a cubie, it may not be cobweb that you are seeing.
i went through three isolations on agar before i got rizomorphic growth out of the strain. i'll tell you what though, those cambo's are awesome!!! very, very nice. i haven't grown out the isolated strain. i can say that the straight spores ralphster sent me, while thin and light growing, produced very well. i have grown them out on brf cakes and straight rye berries. great strain.

I have heard that cambos just love finch seed. Is there anything else they like to grow on? I found this all organic co-op grocery store with about 100 different types of organic grains and flours. I hear of many on these message boards having a hard time finding a good selection of this sort of thing. Since I have just about anything I could want in this department at my disposal, what would be good to experiment with?
BTW, if anyone is unable to find such items, let me know and I would be more than happy to help you get the grain or flour you need. I have gotten alot of help from this board and would like to give something back to this community.

you might try 'dark rye flour'.
i've heard some good reports here and there,
but there really isn't enough data to draw conclusions, imo.

i'm having good luck w/ cambo's on spawned cow compost and straw, cased w/ 50/50. they are growing big and healthy.
