Was fortunate to receive another batch of these spores from Cole here, and proceeded to pot them up, but with some procedural differences followed than from my first attempt with these.
This time, both the top layer of peat and the underlying media, we're both separately microwaved for over 7 minutes apiece.
And the sealable bags were actually new and clean, this time around.
Also, water was boiled, poured into a hand sprayer while still very hot, and squirted through the nozzle, in an attempt to sanitize it to some extent...at least the effort was put forth...it's not tissue culture!
Hands were washed, and the sowing process was performed quickly to limit exposure to the room's air.
All this above is what might have occurred the first time, but I wanted to see what might happen, if clean protocols were not adhered to...
...well this is what resulted...
The one pot has become overgrown with moss, the tops of antfern leaves rising above it.
The other pot didn't have that type of moss overtake it, though.
Was thinking of fertilizing these before, but am rethinking that now.
Olde CP nuts never die - they just recommit themselves...

Wow thats like a slow but fast process at the same time. Judging by the dates it took around 4 months to start showing? And then after that it seemed to go pretty quick eh? Do you still have these guys?
