Because the flour needs to mix in with similar sized particles of wood to properly ferment, and the pine flakes are much bigger. However, if you were to mix in the flakes with the sawdust and flour, I'm sure it would ferment with them.I'll see what I can do. I think that boiling and then backing the aspen pieces has made them fall apart a bit into finer strands. We'll see what the pine shavings are like. How would mixing them with traeger wood pellets help? To get the fermenting started?
Ah yes! I assumed I'd accidentally clicked beyond the initial page somehow -- this is even more helpful!
Well, I'm gradually collecting them and doing all I can to encourage successful reproduction! Once that happens, I'll be sure to send you some once the young are old enough! All I ask is that you let me know how you keep them and how they do for you -- the more information for my book, the better!
Thanks, and I'd besure to provide you my experience with them for your book.
Unlike the glowspots, they actually glow without any sort of fungal supplementation, and according to the paper @Metastasize linked to, the luminescence seems inexhaustible.Handsome little guys but I wonder about the emperor with new clothes or the second coming of Lucihormetica
