I know you werent promoting illegal activity Amey lol although i do have a couple of friends in phillipines not to far from Manila that maybe able to collect relevant tissue sample without taking plant from wild, he did manage to send over a gongora clav, darn! wish i had thought of it back then.
The other bit Amey, i do realise many a paragraph that i write always needs a revamp. FINGERS WORK FASTER THAN BRAIN! 2 seperate concerns!
With using systemic fungicides as standard monthly general orchid care during winter outbreak fiasco i would imagine that being quite a hinderance to the mycozz or any mycozz culturing after application. My last application was March 2012 with Rose Clear Ultra. Do you think 2 or 3 months is sufficient to wait to allow fungicide chemicals to fade away or longer?. Dont wish to use it again anyway as extra Fans are now in use. Between 1 -2 litres of clean rainwater are sprayed daily.
The other bit, you poor git! No i dont want to experiment with fungicide on mushroom plots!Dont worry I wont do it!!!! lol! Edible Mushroom spawn and the 'mycelium' (fine white web like growths in substrate?). Is this mycelium possibly? of any use to orchids or a completely different subject altogether to Mycozz. I realise Mycozz is a much deeper detailed subject- species/ genera specific - and the little packet in the garden center is just pot luck at compatability. I thought about sprinkling some mushroom spawn on backside of orchid mounts? hoping for some kind of beneficial co existence? I do appreciate your efforts really i do!
If i were you Amey i would run away, run away from this madness!
