I innoculated my jars 2 wks ago. 23 of 24 look great - at least 2/3 to 3/4 colonized - nice ropes reaching everywhere. I've got guests coming in a week and a half and don't want to case until after they leave 3 days later (almost a exactly a month after innoculation). Should I start exposing my jars to light now or will it hurt anything if I just wait until the guests leave and then start exposing them to light and then case?

it should be fine to wait till they leave. dont worry about light until you crumble and case and the myc is running through the casing layer...

i'd find a way to give them a bit of light every day anyway, just to keep the ball rollling along on time.
they only need a few seconds of bright light a day to get started towards pinset.
but every day counts.

I agree hip. I start exposing to normal room light from the time the agar is inoculated, right up through casing and harvest. I see no wisdom in keeping mycelia in the dark at any time.
